  1. USFL Alternative History: 1985 to...

    Who knows, maybe we'd get a gem like "This is not soccer." As it stands now you gotta hope Hochuli's reffing your team's game and wait for him to either get long winded or tongue tied. "Yes, there are penatlies at CCSLC. False start, @WideRight. Five yard penalty, still second down."
  2. Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    Closest I can think of currently is Italian soccer club Catania, which wears light blue and red stripes. HBCU college Delaware State also wears light blue and red, but at least in football, they're usually predominantly red.

    About a year or so ago, I came across a site selling 12 sided dice...that are billed as a replacement for the classic 6 sided variety. Having rolled many dice in my life, I gotta say they have a point: cubes don't roll all that well, though the versions with the round corners are somewhat better in this regard. The d20 that is the only thing I still have from my days of buying MLB Showdown has always rolled pretty well, and I have a good amount of cardstock, and am myself, so I reasoned I could modify an existing d12 template to design some doublesixes of my own. I sort of succeeded (and also printed a Bears-themed normal d12), except I made the dice too large. I'll probably post some of my dice designs in the concepts section in the coming week, but this weekend has been the first time I rolled them in game action. First, Friday afternoon saw me bring out Heroes & Rallies Football to pre-play tomorrow's Packers game vs Tampa Bay. What followed was one of the sloppiest beginnings I've had the honor (or dishonor) of playing, and it never really got better for the Pack. Suffice to say Jameis, Evans and Jackson killed the Packer secondary while if the Packers weren't fumbling, Hundley was probably ready to get sacked or picked off. Buccaneers 7-10-7-3---27...Elite players: Jameis Winston (QB), Mike Evans (WR) Packers------7-0--3-2---12...Elite players: Jordy Nelson (WR), Mason Crosby (K), Mike Daniels (DT)* (working on the assumptions that Clay won't play, and has fallen off anyway) *for those wondering why anybody's elite...on certain color-coded results, elite players can make the difference between a loss/short gain and a huge pickup...or between giving up good yardage and huge stops. An example being a roll that would've been a pass for about 15 or so yards, but it's highlighted in orange and the Packers are on defense. On these results, if the defense has an elite DL, he sacks the QB for an 8 yard loss. Another example would be a dark green result that would ordinarily be a 4 yard gain, but it's now 4th and 6. An elite QB, however, turns this into a 20 yard gain. Then, while the early CCGs were on, I decided to put an idea I'd had recently onto the field: a certain star's debut lineup vs the lineup from his final game. The star in question was A-Rod...and let's just say this seemed like a better idea in my head than it ended up being, but I went through with it anyway. The 2016 Yankees head back into time to play the 94 Mariners, with CC Sabathia taking the hill for the Bombers. You'd expect Randy Johnson to be the opposite hurler, no? Nope...some guy named Dave Fleming. Matter of fact, while the Yankees had their starters in the game, that M's lineup was basically Junior surrounded by baby A-Rod and mostly backups. Given that on one side was an A-Rod who wasn't great yet, and on the other, an A-Rod who was no longer great...yeah, honestly both were given a deficiency: Kid-Rod had no power, Old-Rod had lost his bat. Mariner A-Rod went 0-4 with a K, while Yanks A-Rod was 2-5 with a double and an RBI. I'd rolled a result on Old-Rod's last AB that would've given him a shot at a homer...except, his poor hitter rating kicked in, and he instead struck out. The first inning was pretty eventful, as Didi Gregorius robbed Brian Turang of a hit to start the game...and then Aaron Hicks dropped a routine fly ball, enabling Felix Fermin to reach third. Not to be left out of the error party, Brett Gardner had his own botching of a routine fly off Junior's bat, and he reached second while Fermin scored. CC mostly settled down after that, though his outfielders' letdowns would contribute to his early exit via fatigue, as he left after 4 1/3, having allowed 6 runs, 4 of them unearned...and the two earned runs reaching on a home run the Yanks' first reliever, Adam Warren, gave up to Mike Blowers. Fleming, meanwhile, couldn't keep the Yanks off the scoreboard for long, giving up single runs in the third and fourth, the latter off a Texiera solo shot. Entering the 6th, the M's led 7-3....and then had an epic meltdown, as Fleming exited after giving up a pair of singles, giving way to aging Goose Gossage, who had the inning from hell: the first five batters he faced all reached via either singles or walks...and then after consecutive strikeouts made it look like he'd settled down, Brian McCann smacked a grand slam into the stands. A Didi gregorius triple later, and Goose was taking an early shower, relieved by Tim Davis. Davis would shut the door, but while Mariners would score one further run off of Warren, but would get no closer, and the Yankees won 11-8. WP: Warren; LP: Gossage; SV: Betances

    Western Michigan...the bronco carries the state on its back doe (ignore the vintage label, it's about as vintage as Miller Park)
  5. Montreal Alouettes

    I had a couple ideas...I brings them to you. Avant garde, in one of the few places where it would make perfect sense. The 70s-80s flying alouette figures pretty heavily into this uniform, as the helmet and pants stripe, and also separated to form the assymetrical elements of the jersey: the alouette is on the right sleeve, while the A becomes a sash over the left shoulder. The third also uses the old logo, this time blown up on the shoulders, with the alouette serving as a stylized shoulder stripe. The old Als script is placed beneath the front numbers. On all three jerseys, the early 70s bird head is placed on the back of the collar.
  6. So the Phoenix area's basically desert NYC in that respect...that, or an Australian city that happens to be in America

    *in Negan voice* I have to give you boys credit, Hondo...yall got some boulder sized balls there, going up against the big boys!
  9. Championship Preferences

    No, that's not it. The "soccer model" most would think of is what the Premier League and most soccer leagues use: depending on the league size, each team plays everybody else twice (this is usually more for smaller leagues, like Scotland)...whoever has the best record is the champion, whoever has the worst 2-4 records drops down to a lower division. Cup competitions have no bearing whatsoever on league play, so for example if Manchester United suffers an upset in the FA Cup, but they're in second place in the Premier League, even if their cup opponent was a fellow PL club, it has no effect on their league position; likewise, if somebody like Stoke City are trying to fend off relegation in league play, but have made the FA Cup quarterfinals, their cup success has nothing to do with their league failures. There are leagues with more unusual setups, like the Apertura-Clausura split seasons favored in Mexico and many Central and South American leagues, or that Belgian system I linked to in my last post, but what I described is the most common way soccer leagues play out.

    This is possible? Really? In Texas?
  11. 2017 college football postseason: lower divisions

    Well...since the Warhawks are sitting at home this year, let's go Okra *clap* *clap* clap-clap-clap*
  12. Championship Preferences

    I'd be interested in something like the Belgian league myself. The description of it is strange, but I like it. That's just the way I am
  13. Albany AFL Team NOT Going To Be Firebirds

    I figure it'll be Phoenix or Fire, given those would be the closest they could get to Firebirds.
  14. 2017 High School Football

    We in Wisconsin have had a pretty good weekend so far...the state champions have been decided, and the Badgers beat those bastards in blue. All seven games were broadcast on FS Wisconsin, as previously mentioned in a two day span, so without further ado, here go the scores. I'm a bit late with em because the ol' PC has been acting up this week. Thursday: Division 7 Championship: Bangor 37, Black Hawk 14. Bangor finished a perfect 14-0 in winning their second title, while Black Hawk went home with L #1 to finish 13-1. Div. 6 Championship: St. Mary's Springs blew out Iola-Scandinavia to the tune of 35-12. The Ledgers finish undefeated, and as DJ Khaled would put it, another one (state title #7 for them), while Iola finishes 11-3. Div. 5 Championship: Amherst and Lake County Lutheran fought it out to make for the first of the close games, with Amherst winning 28-21. Both schools finished 13-1, with Amherst winning their third straight title and fourth overall. Div. 4 Championship: In another close one, Lodi took down St. Croix Central 17-10. Lodi went undefeated (14-0), while Central ends it at 12-2. This is Lodi's first championship Friday: Div. 3 Championsihp: Rice Lake had its way with New Berlin Eisenhower, winning 25-3. Rice Lake finishes 11-2, while Ike goes home 13-1. This is Rice Lake's second state title, and first since 1979. Div. 2 Championship: Waunaukee edged Brookfield Central 14-13...the new champs featured Ron Dayne's son at RB, and capped off an undefeated season (take a guess, why don'tcha), while Brookfield Central hangs their helmets up for the winter at 13-1. This was not only Waunaukee's first state championship, this was their first trip to Madison, so congrats to them. Div. 1 Championship: Kimberly beat Sun Prairie 27-7. The Papermakers finish undefeated while winning their fourth straight D1 title (5th straight of 7 overall, including three D2 titles before moving up), while the Cardinals finish 13-1. And I've only just now bothered to read the state championship pdf, which is telling me all the games have been at Camp Randall since 1982. Before then, they'd been at various locales all over the state...and by that, I mean one game might be in Oshkosh, another would be in Madison, yet another would be in La Crosse, etc.

    I remember back in my younger days halfway wondering why their baseball games' box art always had at least one Orioles pic...and never made the connection until much later in my life Oh well, there are far worse choices than the O's.
