    Major League Football is back and better than ever

    NEW ORLEANS PIRATES Founded 1972 Based In New Orleans, Louisiana Home Field Mercendez-Benz Dome Head Coach Dan Sheppard Offensive Coordinator Steve Clements Defensive Coordinator Sam Gray General Manager John McKenzie Owner(s) Jerry Crane Colors Purple, Black, & Gold MLF Championships none Overview: Dan Sheppard is known as a defensive coach but the last few years under offensive coordinator Sean Saunders they have been a pretty good offense. Steve Clements who was coordinator for Cincinnati for a few years takes over. The one issue they have had on offense they feel was addressed by drafting RB Devante Hunter in the third round. QB Chris Bruener had a good year last throwing for 5,057 Yards & 31 TD's but led the league with 23 INT's however he was trying to do it all & was also the second leading rusher on the team. They also drafted WR D.J. Scott to go along with Ahmad Abdur-Sahim. The defense is expected to be good again led by All-Pro S Von Cato, DT Baron Thomas, DE Quinton Graves, LB Peter Bullock & CB Chris McCleon. They also drafted LB Rashaan Avery which should see immediate playing time. The Pirates were one play away from beating the eventual champs losing 26-29 in OT to Carolina in the National Conference Championship Game.
  2. 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.

    Exactly there is just nothing to really look at except the teal color but then nothing else to say man these look great. These are not the worst ever I would put them slightly above the rest of the uniforms except of course their initial uniforms & these would be way below those.

    MINNESOTA BRUINS Founded 1920 Based In Minneapolis, Minnesota Home Field US Bank Stadium Head Coach Darren Graves Offensive Coordinator Don Mullins Defensive Coordinator Willie Jenkins General Manager Chris Donovan Owner(s) Stephen Walter Colors Green & Gold MLF Championships none Overview: Minnesota fans have been waiting a long time to get a team that could compete for a championship. Right now they have a team that can compete with Cleveland & Milwaukee for the division but a few moves this off season have some questioning if this team might go backwards. First, they elected to not sign QB Ben Harrell to a long term extension & is going into his last year of his contract. Second, they kept Don Mullins as offensive coordinator even though some play calling duties were taken away late last year. To say the least it is a contentious team right now. The offense has never had better skill players with RB Devin Holmes, WR's Andre Turner & Anthony Dixon. The line is solid with T's Francisco Carlisle & Josh Vickery, G's Greg Newberry & Andre Paxton to go along with C Nick McCollum. Defense needs more pieces to help out CB Kenny Grant & DT Kevin Suggs which is the reason DE Quincey Ratliff was signed from Washington this year.

    I just do not like either of those designs because you can miss it on most players & it really adds nothing of visual interest to the jersey or pants. If the pants had some stripes that were at least teal & black I think these would look less like they are to be worn to practice and more like the other examples people keep using Raiders, Saints, Giants, etc. Just my opinion of course! I am sorry for offending anyone with the use of practice but c'mon we talkin' about practice, man!

    MILWAUKEE WARRIORS Founded 1920 Based In Milwaukee, Wisconsin Home Field Warriors Stadium Head Coach Steve Pariana Offensive Coordinator J.J. Jones Defensive Coordinator Joe Selman General Manager Joe Dimitry Owner(s) Paul Henry Colors Red, Blue, & Gold MLF Championships 1 Overview: Head coach Steve Pariana missed the playoffs for the first time in his nine years in Milwaukee last year. QB Kyle Edwards continues to be one of the better QB's as Pariana has been known for developing QB's going back to his days as OC & QB coach. The running game was abysmal last year after rookie RB Akeem Coleman was out for the season with injury in the sixth game of the season. They drafted another RB in Rashaad Booker in the fourth round to resolve the problem this year. The WR's Jalen Graham, Taco Johnson, & Rod Wilson are all very talented. Offensive line has been productive but T Monte Wafer has been a dissapointment & could be his last year with the team. The defense is now under former Philadelphia head coach & Miners DC Joe Selman which shall be interesting to see how well they perform as they need the most improvement. CB Kenny Williams & S Karim Udoka are the most notable players on this defense expect draft picks CB Denzle Hughes & LB Zaire Smith to both push to be in the starting lineup.

    MIAMI MARAUDERS Founded 1964 Based In Miami, Florida Home Field Hard Rock Stadium Head Coach Terry Nolan Offensive Coordinator Chris Quinn Defensive Coordinator Ray Holland General Manager Mike Pace Owner(s) Bryan Moreno Colors Teal, Black, & Silver MLF Championships 2 Overview: Terry Nolan is on the hot seat after taking over for legendary coach Mel Weinhoff. The main reason is the offense has not performed as well with QB Chad Kessler being in & out of the lineup with injuries. Also WR Michael Carter who is a truly special talent but seems to be a head case now wants more money this year & is still holding out. They have a nice runner in RB Cory Collins. The line is lead by big T Etan Miller. Nolan brought in WR Mark Toney who he coached years ago in their Memphis days to stabilize the group. The defense has been one of the best the last few years lead by the best middle LB in the game Rob Manning, one of the best S in the game in Donovan Greer, two nice CB's in Ike Allen & Deshea Taylor, & the one of the best young DT Shaun Coleman. They also drafted LB Dion Warner in the first round to make this unit even stronger.

    not necessarily intentional but what I had in mind since I was kid so not really anything I can do to differentiate more than I already have.

    MEMPHIS BLUES Founded 1994 Based In Memphis, Tennessee Home Field Autozone Liberty Bowl Head Coach Gill Thomas Offensive Coordinator Bruce Sheppard Defensive Coordinator Hue Mills General Manager Rick Robinson Owner(s) Pat Glass Colors Memphis Blue, Navy, & White MLF Championships none Overview: Gill Thomas was one of the best defensive coordinators in the game four years ago but since becoming head coach his teams have only became average at best. QB Nate Freeman has had his ups & downs since being a high draft pick Thomas' first draft. RB Shawn Wallace continues to be the best player on the team and one of the best RB's in the league. WR Kendrick Hill is still one of the toughest players on the team & TE Ben Walker has became a reliable threat. They used their first round pick on T Matt McGarrity to sure up the line. The defense has never came together for Gill with the only players of note being CB Corey McCants & LB Tank Carter. Top draft pick last year DT Willie Bowens has been diappointing. The new uniforms were debuted in 2016 along with an updated logo & new secondary. DE Allen Peterson was traded to Houston today for a 2nd round pick next year after holding out of camp.

    LOS ANGELES STARS Founded 1953 Based In Los Angeles, CA Home Field Los Angeles Stadium Head Coach Ken Cromwell Offensive Coordinator Brian Bateman Defensive Coordinator Kirk Trgovac General Manager Ken Cromwell Owner(s) Mark D'Angelo Colors LA Blue & Gold MLF Championships 9 Overview: The LA Stars are the most popular & most hated team in the MLF. Their haters are saying that with offensive coordinatorJason Arnett leaving will hurt while the supporters are saying 29 year old QB coach Brian Bateman will be even better. It is hard to imagine an this offense better but if QB Steve Erickson stays healthy along with returning starters RB Deion McCoy, WR Calvin Coleman plus adding veteran WR's Darien Brooks & Terry Stallworth through free agency not mention drafting the best TE in the draft in Tyler Thomas they really could be even better. The offensive line is strong led by T Dave O'Neill & G D.J. Dotson, & C Jeff Miller. The defense is still strong led by DE Kevin Norris, DT's Marcus Cook & T.T. Collins, LB's Henry Graves & Darron Johnson, S Eddie Pruitt, & CB Sean Allen. They also added FS Marcus Fitzgerald in the draft.

    KANSAS CITY MUSTANGS Founded 1908 Based In Kansas City, Missouri Home Field Sprint Stadium Head Coach Jason Arnett Offensive Coordinator Don Brandt Defensive Coordinator Keith Frazier General Manager Louis Greer Owner(s) Larry Fowler Colors Red & Gold MLF Championships none Overview: The most coveted coordinator in the game Jason Arnett finally took a head coaching job at 35 after spending several years with the Los Angeles Stars the last six as offensive coordinator. The younger brother of John has taken over the Mustangs in a rebuilding time but has full confidence in owner Larry Fowler who up until last year had been known for fielding competitive teams. The #2 pick in the draft RB Jamaal Henry is considered one the best backs to come out of the draft in some time. Former Chicago QB Luke Reiner is hoping to make his first start after tearing his ACL last year in a preseason game which was apart of the reason they went 2-14. To help sure up the QB situation they also drafted Nate Webb in the fourth round. The defense is solid led by DT DeShawn Roberts, DE Justin Jenson, LB James Durant, & S A.J. McDonald. They changed they uniforms & updated logo slightly this year going with more of a updated version of their throwback uniform before they added gold when they were in LA.

    INDIANAPOLIS RACERS Founded 1988 Based In Indianapolis, Indiana Home Field Lucas Oil Field Head Coach Chris Childress Offensive Coordinator Don Perry Defensive Coordinator Emmit Jackson General Manager Al Crowell Owner(s) Lyn Barnes Colors Racer Red, Black, & White MLF Championships 2 Overview: The Racers under Al Crowell's direction as coach or GM has been great. Even though they went 1-15 in his last year that was the year he stepped down as coach & drafted the best young QB in J.T. McCoy to replace Trent Johnson who was out the whole 2013 season. The offense was great last year with RB Charlie Waters, the best WR in football ever in Derek Taylor at the ripe age of 38, & a great tackle in Kenyon Johnson. The defense is strong with DE Andre Warrick, DT Anthony Harrell, LB Dexter Singleton, CB Stanley Townsend, & S Eric O'Neal. The additions in the draft of first round pick WR DeSean James & second round pick RB T.J. Cobb will only make this team even more of a contender. Last year they lost their first playoff game after McCoy was hurt & did not play.

    HOUSTON BULLS Founded 1968 Based In Houston, Texas Home Field NRG Stadium Head Coach Jim Callahan Offensive Coordinator Bill Alexander Defensive Coordinator Jerry Reed General Manager Bobby Richards Owner(s) The Richards Family Trust (managing partner Tina Dernard) Colors Black & Gold MLF Championships 1 Overview: Jim Callahan & his coordinators have been together the longest. QB Drew Pawlus has really shined the last five years & turned them into a contender every year winning the championship in the 2014 season. On offense RB Domanick Gordon has been a very consistent runner rushing for at least a thousand yards in 6 of his 8 seasons this may be his last year with the team as he is in the last year of his contract. WR has never been a strong position for this team despite Pawlus putting up good numbers but Aaron Richardson has been solid & the addition of former LA Star Nate Harrison should prove even better. The offensive line is one of the best in the league with C Trey Benton, G's Ben Fowler & Corliss Evans, & T's Tony Starks & Lovell Holbrook. The defense is solid with DE Allen Peterson, DT Mana Kalu, LB Demario Bowman, S Lemuel Laxton & CB Ricardo Stallings. First round draft pick LB Luke Vandeburg will solidify the middle.

    DETROIT AUTOS Founded 1924 Based In Detroit, Michigan Home Field Ford Field Head Coach Brad McDaniels Offensive Coordinator Mike Palmer Defensive Coordinator George Clemons General Manager Mark Lynch Owner(s) Mike Dolan Colors Blue, Red, & Silver MLF Championships 1 Overview: Brad McDaniels is a John Arnett disciple & suffered through a 1-15 season knowing that he would have a chance to draft a really special talent at QB. Ever since QB Marcus King went to Portland Detroit has went through starting QB's. The decision to draft Brett Barnett was not a lock but certainly one that was expected by many. The draft was really good for them as they had five draft picks in the first 64. Barnett, DE Marcus Armstrong, RB Andre Doucette, CB Jaire Kelly, T Mike Mazano, & TE Dave Gebeki all appear to be starters for them now or in the near future. The defense also picked up a majore free agent in 27 year old LB Mario Rogers from Atlanta.

    DENVER RIDERS Founded 1953 Based In Denver, Colorado Home Field Sports Authority Field Head Coach John Arnett Offensive Coordinator Gary Bicknell Defensive Coordinator Johnny Dunbar General Manager Jeff Colbert Owner(s) Glen Holt Colors Black & Copper MLF Championships 4 Overview: The Riders continue to be that team that wins but just cannot get over the hump. In the first round last year they put up 35 points on one of the best defenses in Buffalo but lost because they gave up 38. Glen Holt has full confidence in John Arnett but the fan base has grew tired and they really want a new QB. QB Vince Morano at 38 is still very productive but still the losses have been mounting up. Age is a real factor with this team as RB Calvin Gray, WR Warren Houston, T Todd Meadows, G Morris Davis, C Ben Cavillo, defensive lineman Cedric Grant, Richard Ellis, & Matt Ma'afala, along with CB's Ronnie Dudley & Kerry Williams are at least 30. To make matters worse they only had four draft picks this year. The only change to the Denver is they have went with a more brighter copper now.

    DALLAS MARSHALS Founded 1960 Based In Dallas, Texas Home Field At&t Stadium Head Coach Brian Turner Offensive Coordinator Tom Verucci Defensive Coordinator Ray Brennan General Manager Ron Pawlawski Owner(s) John Livingston III Colors Blue, Red, & Silver MLF Championships 6 Overview: Dallas has been one of the most successful franchises in the MLF the past 20 years. Winning four championships the last coming in the 2015 season when Trent Johnson finished his career with a championship after coming over from Indianapolis in free agency along with head coach Brian Turner from St. Louis. The past season was their worst going 7-9 after current QB Rhett Harper missed half of the season. Offense has been just OK the last few years under Harper with the lack of any big play threats since RB Jermaine Johnson is more of a pounder & leading WR Chris Conley being just a possession receiver. T Ervin Alston is still the best in the game at his position. The defense has still been good under former Chicago head coach Ray Brennan. They added LB/DE Keith Jefferson in free agency from St. Louis along with first round pick S Tre Moore to go along with DE Ezra Ebe, DT DeMarr Ford, LB's Chris Strickland & Trevor Newman, & CB Malik Taylor.

    CLEVELAND BULLDOGS Founded 1895 Based In Cleveland, Ohio Home Field FirstEnergy Field Head Coach Gary Hargraves Offensive Coordinator Dennis Brooks Defensive Coordinator Herman Martinez General Manager Tom Ireland Owner(s) Amy Ballmer Colors Maroon, Black, & White MLF Championships 13 Overview: Head coach Gary Hargraves has been very successful but has zero championships after losing in the 2014 MLF Championship game to Houston. This team still has some of its core pieces with QB Koy McCord, RB Michael Griffin, & WR Koren Hill on offense. They also picked up veteran OT Richmond Slavey via free agency. The defense has some nice pieces with DT Darius Gunn, LB Cody Morgan, & CB Kenny Oliver but he is 35 now so draft pick Taron Ward from LSU might be his replacement soon.

    I updated the primary for Buffalo I am not sure how the lines came about like McCrosby was talking about in his post but I removed them & changed it just a little. Those were not in my original file so at some point I added them.

    CINCINNATI KINGS Founded 1978 Based In Cincinnati, Ohio Home Field Fifth Third Bank Stadium Head Coach Sherman Gray Offensive Coordinator Mike McClain Defensive Coordinator Ray Lynn General Manager Brett Ballard Owner(s) Joe Gore Jr. Colors Royal Blue & Gold MLF Championships none Overview: Former Boston Admirals Coach Sherman Gray is rebuilding once again after building Boston to a playoff team but getting fired because he could not win in the playoffs. QB Chase Riley is looking to be a steal in the fourth round a few years ago. Draft day this year has brought a few starters with number one draft pick CB Anthony Alexander, 2nd round RB Leonard Mack, & third round LB Dorian Jefferson. 2nd year TE A.J. Ingram is looking like a star as well.

    Sorry it is fixed now. I appreciate the kind words. Buffalo is not one of my favorites either maybe one day I will redesign it. Chicago was my least favorite before because of the uniform now I really like their identity overall with new design.
