    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    If they were smart they would scrap the purple as well. Trying to be optimistic on the AAF but unless it's called NFL2 I just don't see it lasting
  2. MLS. Every league needs to follow them and dump divisions. Just my opinion but the NFL is the most flawed. Anyone remember the 7-9 Seahawks making the playoffs?

    Minor League Hockey Shake-up...coming

    Just watched a whole weekend of free games on AHLTV. I was really impressed with the video quality and commentating. Definitely worth the $80 for the whole season! I'm signing up now!

    Minor League Hockey Shake-up...coming

    Sorry if there is already a thread for this, I couldn't find it. Looks like for 2015-16 the minor league hockey system is going to go with a huge overhaul. Looks like the Western Conference teams are going to get Western teams, so here is what I have gathered so far... 1. Arizona Coyotes have bought the Arizona Sundogs (once of the CHL). They will be the new AHL team for Arizona. 2. Colorado Avalanche have purchased the Denver Cutthroats (once of the CHL). They will be the new AHL Colorado affiliate. 3. Los Angles Kings will be moving their AHL affiliate to Ontario, CA (they already own the Reign, ECHL,). Reign will be moved up. 4. Winnipeg Jets are moving their AHL team to Thunder Bay. 5. Ducks apparently are buying an AHL team and moving it to San Diego. Probably a return of the Gulls, I suspect. 6. Edmonton Oilers have purchased the Bakersfield Condors (ECHL). They will be the new AHL affiliate. So what this leaves is San Jose, who are rumored to be moving Worcester to California. Only fitting they team up with the Stockton Thunder. Calgary and Vancouver are rumored (once deals are closed) will be moving their teams West. Since, the ECHL West will be dismantled, this looks like the Alaska Aces will be closing up shop after this season. Utah Grizzlies future is unknown. Probably will be ceasing operations as well. Now, it makes perfect sense why the Midwest teams of the ECHL have been moved into the Western Conference. News is at the end of this season the CHL will be folding and of what little teams are left will be absorbed into the ECHL. Brampton will probably fold where they are struggling to stay afloat now. So, another question is what happens to the AHL teams/cities that lose their team? Portland, ME (Pirates) have a strong history in the AHL. Do they get a second chance are they folding too? Worcester Sharks are looking to fold. The Oklahoma City Barons are up for sale by Edmonton. Perhaps St. Louis buys them and moves their AHL team there? Another question is the Lake Erie Monsters? With Colorado buying the Denver Cutthroats where does that leave them? They would fit in nicely with the ECHL (Walleye, Cyclones). Anybody know of anymore "news"?

    The Whalers Return! Hurricanes Announce Epic Throwback Uniforms

    Maybe it's time for the Hurricanes to pay tribute to the Whalers all season long? Would be awesome to see them change their uniforms/colors to the Whalers template with the Hurricanes logo in the middle.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    Gonna be interesting to see how some of these rules play out. I'm all up for less kicking. Still haven't understood why in pro football kicking is still around. Spend the whole game going up and down the field, and rely on a guy who sits on the sideline most of the game.

    Minor League Hockey Shake-up...coming

    Until the ECHL becomes realstic with their prices, I think I'm going to watch AHL.

    Minor League Hockey Shake-up...coming

    Ah, my big pet peave... Why does the ECHL charge an insane amount of money for ECHLTV? AHLTV is half the price. I wish the Cyclones would pay the fee and move up to the AHL (when a spot becomes available). I think there could be a nice rivalry with the Monsters.

    NLL Expansion 2018

    The NLL needs to embrace it's history and keep the Knighthawks in Rochester... If they do move, then what in five years we have a new Wings situation?

    North American Pro Soccer 2018

    I don't think it would stay afloat if there were two tiers. The US and Europe are two different things. The US is spread out a lot further. Like the guy said above, goodbye to municipalites doing any funding. Look at how much money Carl Linder III just spent to get FC Cincinnati in the MLS. If they were to get relegated in a year or so, goodbye FC Cincinnati. What the MLS has now is not broken. All else fails cap the league at 32 with 16 and 16, and top 8 making playoffs. Keep it as an East West Final.

    NHL 2018-19

    There needs to be a WC held at The Horeshoe between the Jackets and Red Wings. 100k plus witnessing Ohio vs Michigan. Jackets would wear inaugural darks, Wings traditional white.

    Austin FC

    Hmmm, now we know why FC Cincinnati was rushed into play next year. It's all about money. All Crew fans need to be welcomed in Cincy. Maybe there should be a bring your Crew gear night and torch it.

    No different than referring to a mascot as a Trojan, Spartan or Viking. They weren't very nice either.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    The AAF is taking another step in the right direction. They aren't trying to compete with the NFL, but rather aligning themselves to be the one and only minor league. Steps like these will shut down the XFL before it even starts.

    I've always wondered what that is in their shield? Horse, Phoenix, thunder chicken?

    You can watch the games on YouTube the day after they air. The channel is CFL Insider. They offer the full game and a 6 minute recap.

    I just can't see Vegas beating San Jose, but hell I thought they would finish 8th.

    Minor League Hockey Shake-up...coming

    I like seeing the Nailers back where they should be, alignment wise. They always had a good rivalry with the Cyclones. Alignment is all set up for Dayton to come back. Would love to see the Bombers return.
