  1. I'm going to be quite honest and say I don't keep up with the people side of things in the AFA, so I wouldn't know who's calling what. I'll explain what ABC provides, and that's a doubleheader each week. (Think the NFL system but condensed on one network). Most of the country gets their regional games in an early window (12:30 ET), while western teams typically play at 3:30 ET. Coverage is regionalized fairly heavily. Monday Night Showcase is, of course, independent of that. There are a lot of broadcast teams, and particularly in the eastern states, if you receive multiple ABC affiliates you may well have a choice of games to watch. The New Jersey Sharks play an inordinate amount of late games because they cannot conflict with New York or Philadelphia. There have been a couple of cases where the AFA and ABC granted dispensation for the teams to air opposite each other with another station taking the New Jersey game. In fact, the ability to make this situation more normalized and increase schedule flexibility is one of the reasons the AFA has considered bringing in another network alongside ABC in the past. (Actually I'd like to see an example week in the AFA so I could devise what that schedule might look like.)
  2. Thrilling game in Detroit! One thing: Also a bit of an issue besides it saying BOS, not TB, is that it should say MST, not MDT. Never use *DT* if you aren't in Daylight Saving Time.
  3. That supposed Salt Lake Stallions inaugural season logo gives me big Overwatch League vibes...

    They had to increase the negative space because at small sizes it kind of blurred together.
  5. The graphic seems to have some issues, namely not being updated and having the incorrect Roman numeral "XVL".
  6. I can see the Miners having an 80s Cowboys-esque falloff this coming decade, too...
  7. This is a stellar series, as usual. Glad I spent hours reading through all of it!

    Driveball Redux (1958 Offseason)

    I'd easily pick St. Louis, especially in 1956.
  9. That KC sweater is definitely this world's equivalent to the Florida Panthers "double blue"...
  10. It occurs to me this is actually the 1990 season...
  11. Ouch for Dallas! Big ouch. Gives me almost 2011 World Series vibes.
  12. Yeah, that was a problem. Too bad I couldn't remember all the USFA teams...
  13. There's also an economic recession coming after the 1990 USFA season, and I can see that being a major problem for the Atoms (in a market fairly hard hit) and potentially other teams.
  14. I definitely like the one on the left.
  15. Very surprised to see that the front office story wasn't bigger news this year.
