  1. My fictional league I have had since I was kid was completed a few years ago for those that did not follow that thread. The old thread was locked so I decided to start a new one for some changes I made plus I put all the teams on a new template. The first couple will not have many changes but I have changed in some form the Rhinos, Barbarians, Riders, Racers, Mustangs, Blues, Marauders, Minnesota, Knights, Firebirds, Miners, Pioneers, Stallions, & Shockers. To start off here is the League & Conference Logos that are unchanged.

    WASHINGTON AMERICANS Founded 1940 Based In Washington, D.C. Home Field FedEx Field Head Coach Tom Shurtz Offensive Coordinator Mike Haley Defensive Coordinator Dan Bradley General Manager Brian Light Owner(s) John Henry Jones III Colors Red, White, & Blue MLF Championships 5 Overview: Washington has been a very steady team under Tom Shurtz but have never won the big game. They do have a feel good story in former Canadian Football Association QB Anthony Kovalev becoming the starter for them the last three years. He has been pretty productive as well throwing 35 TD's his first year starting but dropping off to 25 TD's last year. RB Jamaal Burris is still one of the best backs in the league at 29 years old. WR Jaraan Williams is always in the top 10 in catches. The defense is under first year coordinator Dan Bradley who has rose through the coaching ranks after his retirement just five seasons ago. The defense has some talent with DT Montae Hayward & LB Ty Payton & one of the best SS in Trumaine Tillman.

    TAMPA BAY BARRACUDAS Founded 1994 Based In Tampa, Florida Home Field Raymond James Stadium Head Coach Ronnie Oliver Offensive Coordinator Josh Olson Defensive Coordinator Daryll Byrd General Manager Brandon Brown Owner(s) Alex Angelos Colors Teal & Orange MLF Championships none Overview: Tampa Bay has went from one of the oldest teams to across the board to one of the youngest teams. The first step was hiring 40 year old defensive coordinator Ronnie Oliver to replace Buddy Zimmer. He brought 35 year Josh Olson in as offensive coordinator from their days in Memphis under legendary coach Don Brooks. The next step was drafting QB Jake Roth that same year then adding pieces ever since. 2nd year standout WR Jabrill Jones looks to be one of the best to come out in a long time. The final offensive piece was drafting RB De'Angelo Johnson this year in the second round. The defense also got big boost drafting DT Kalei Kekoa in the first round while LB's Derrick Perryman & Terrell Morrison lead the charge in the middle. CB's Chad Mixon & Anthony Webster are capable of making big plays as well.

    It was the original name but for some reason changed it. I decided to change it back... I did not like Thunderbolts as the name...

    SEATTLE SHOCKERS Founded 1978 Based In Seattle, Washington Home Field CenturyLink Stadium Head Coach Mike Marinella Offensive Coordinator Steve Gansz Defensive Coordinator Jim Haluchak General Manager Joe Snead Owner(s) Rick Hammonds Colors Seattle Green & Yellow MLF Championships 1 Overview: Despite having one of the best QB's in Marvin Carter Seattle has continued to struggle to compete in the extremely hard AC West Division. The offense is not the problem even though they tend to forget about the running game surprisingly enough they resigned RB Jarvis Martin who is 31. TE Tony Verreli is 34 & their best WR Trey Smith is 32 so they are certainly running out of time with this talented roster. The offensive line is young at the tackles with second year RT Eric Eaton & first round pick LT Cole Richardson. The middle of line is solid with veteran G's Levon Jackson & Antonio Richmond along with C Donnell Avery. The defense has struggled in recent years but has a really good CB in Shaun Westbrook.

    SAN FRANCISCO HAWKS Founded 1953 Based In San Francisco, California Home Field Levis Stadium Head Coach Teryl Ward Offensive Coordinator Mike Castillo Defensive Coordinator Ray Edwards General Manager Les Hunley Owner(s) Jeff Guthrie Colors Purple, Silver, & Black MLF Championships 1 Overview: The Hawks futility has lasted for years but they hope they have found the answer in 2nd year QB Josh Sanchez. The big strong armed Stanford product is really the type of franchise player every team hopes for now it is time for them to put some pieces around him. RB is questionable since none of the players have much experience. WR Kenard Hamilton is pretty good & they are hoping rookie Trey Wims will help out. Veteran T Melvin Wilkerson has never played for another team & is still a very capable at age 36. The defense is strong led by LB's Desmond Watson, Nick Van Noord & Hassan Thompson.

    SAN DIEGO SHARKS Founded 1972 Based In San Diego, California Home Field Qualcomm Stadium Head Coach Gill Gilbert Offensive Coordinator Bob Christenson Defensive Coordinator Ray Perry General Manager John Allen Owner(s) Virginia Hunt Colors Sea Green & Slate MLF Championships none Overview: After a few miserable years of ineptitude San Diego has become one of the best teams in the league the last five years under the direction of GM John Allen & head coach Gill Gilbert. The main reason is the best RB in the league D'Andre Barber who has had some of the best seasons by RB ever. However when they acquired former Toronto Rhino QB Matt Holecek is when this team really took off four years ago. He has a very good WR in Bobby Owens as well. The offensive line is very good led by C Max Larsen & T Jake Steinburg. They also upgraded at G with first round pick Jamarco Brown. The defense is good led by DT Marcus Canty & LB's Eric Lee & Derrick Harris with a strong secondary with CB Schea Wright & S Ronnie Butler.

    SAINT LOUIS STALLIONS Founded 1960 Based In St. Louis Stallions Home Field National Car Rental Field Head Coach Mike Rowan Offensive Coordinator Marty McPherson Defensive Coordinator Ron Colleto General Manager Eric Dorsa Owner(s) Robert Cooke Colors Silver & Black MLF Championships 2 Overview: The Stallions miss the days of the Brian Turner & Craig Matthews led teams that brought home two championships. Long time offensive coordinator Joe Ferraro who was promoted to head coach was fired after several sub par seasons. UCLA head coach Mike Rowan was brought in to bring the team back to prominence. Her brought two veteran offensive & defensive coordinators who were also head coaches in Marty McPherson & Ron Colleto to help with his inexperience. He would have liked to draft Barnett at QB but instead settled with Oklahoma State QB Johnny Maze who many thought was the sleeper of the first round draft picks. He picked up his nemesis RB Kareem Cook from USC to take over running game. The defense still has some veterans on it with CB Ken McIntyre & DE Al Jenkins.

    I like the star as I want it to be an iconic logo that has lasted for years. If you want to know why I picked that symbol you have to look to the Portland flag which has the star on it & what it represents Thanks! Seattle has not changed very much I just changed the name to what it was originally not sure why I changed it. I will take note of the name change. I thought about adding green but choose not to I may explore it again.

    PORTLAND PIONEERS Founded 1964 Based In Portland, Oregon Home Field Jeld Wen Field Head Coach Mike Ferrara Offensive Coordinator Larry Sutton Defensive Coordinator Rod Blackmon General Manager Mike Murphy Owner(s) Dan Allen Colors Forest Green & Yellow MLF Championships none Overview: The last few years Portland has been a very competitive team mainly behind QB Marcus King who has had a resurgence since coming via trade from Detroit. However, he sat out the whole offseason debating whether to retire at age 37 in the end he decided one more year. Portland did draft what they hope is his replacement in Dayne Cook out of Notre Dame in the preseason though former Arena League MVP Brett Cole solidified himself as the backup after a great spring for Utah Stags. RB Kevin McAllister is one of the best all-purpose backs but is 30 & WR Charles Porter is solid as well. The defense is good with DT Tony Powe leading the way with CB Anthony Newman & S Dre Jones leading the secondary.

    Actually they got their name as the initial owner E.C. Denney was a big Princeton Tigers alum & they were dominate at the time in college football. He wanted his football team to be the Princeton of the MLF.

    PITTSBURGH MINERS Founded 1894 Based In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Home Field Heinz Field Head Coach Pat McIntyre Offensive Coordinator Frank Davidson Defensive Coordinator John Marshall General Manager Artie Davis Owner(s) Art Davis Colors Black & Silver MLF Championships 1 Overview: Long time coach Russ Lowry was fired after last few years of disappointing seasons. They traded up with Dallas to secure the 10th pick to get what they hope is the first franchise QB Josh Mason since the days of Hall of Fame QB Dan Torreli. They also signed journeyman QB Jeff Gannon to mentor him & possibly start this season. RB Kenny Murray is a hard runner and the skill positions are very good in TE Jeremy Pollard & WR's Alvin Haywood & Devin Watts. G Jim Avezzano leads a solid line. Defense is where they expect to improve with Pat McIntyre coming over as head coach after spending many years as DC for Washington. They are looking to switch over to a 3-4 defense which right now they do not have the LB's for but are solid at DT with Maurice Rush & DE with Matt Robison & at CB's with Amare Childress & Darius Buchanon.

    PHOENIX FIREBIRDS Founded 1988 Based In Glendale, Arizona Home Field University of Phoenix Stadium Head Coach Karl Rhodes Offensive Coordinator Jim Dunning Defensive Coordinator Tony Thurman General Manager Steve Gaines Owner(s) David Black Colors Red & Yellow MLF Championships none Overview: The offseason in Phoenix was brutal with most of the front office & head coach Ron Raye fired and hiring former Seattle Shockers head coach Karl Rhodes. QB Shaun Brooks had a tough year having 15/17 TD/INT ratio the worst since his rookie year. RB Isaiah Turner was in & out of the lineup with injuries. WR Eric James is one of the best but is looking to get paid going into the last year of his contract. Offensive line is average at best but C Roberto Gutierrez is one of the best. The defense is average with the best players being LB's Rueben Evans, Shawn Guidry & Thomas Fielder.

    Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    Drop shadows or up shadows whichever it is called for the browns I just can't stand... I have never seen a uniform with that element that if you changed just to outlined numbers it would instantly look better.
