  1. This is a pretty interesting fictional sport you have going on here! The concepts themselves are also quite unique! Although I am curious about how you come up with the results for each season. Anyway, keep up the good work! And go New York Heroes and Oakland Squirrels!
  2. Josephine “Josie” Olivia Bennett (née Graziani) was born on February 25, 1961 in Brooklyn, New York to Sal and Louise Graziani. Her father was the owner of Graziani’s, a family owned pizza chain that was popular throughout New York City, but was struggling to get national recognition. Despite her parents being huge sports fans, Josie would not get into hockey until the age of seven, when she met a boy named Sammy Bennett at school. Sammy’s father was the coach of a Brooklyn based minor league hockey team, and the team was struggling financially. Due to Sammy’s love for hockey, as he and Josie became friends, she became more and more into hockey (And the two began to root for the New York Civics in fact), and once both their parents saw how much they were getting along, it resulted in Graziani’s not only becoming a sponsor of the Brooklyn team, but several other minor league hockey teams throughout the East Coast, and soon other cities outside of New York saw Graziani’s open up. As of 1999, Graziani’s has a presence in not only the northeast, but in the Midwest and Mid Atlantic as well. As for Josie, she and Sammy married in 1985 and she inherited the family business a year later after her father passed away. She also has three children: Julia (Born 1988), Eric (Born 1992), and Becky (Born 1995). Eric also wants to play in the PHL when he grows up. Without further ado, Josie votes for: Atlanta: The potential fanbase is a large one, and while Atlanta may be a crowded sports market, Josie feels that owner Joseph Cartwright has enough hockey knowledge to make a PHL team in Atlanta Lewis Cup Contenders in a hurry. Portland: Despite Vancouver and Seattle already having a presence in the PHL, Josie thinks a new arena and a passionate fanbase will help a Portland franchise compete well with the likes of the Bighorns and Gray Wolves.
  3. My guesses as to these four teams are from would have to be Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas, and Houston.
  4. This is a good alternate universe league you have going here, I must admit! As for the Pacific, I’m guessing the teams are in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and either Portland or Seattle.
  5. I’m just curious Hawkfan, what are the PHL’s awards aside from the Lewis Cup named after? I know the Whyte Trophy is awarded to the top goaltender, but what about the awards for top defenseman, Playoff MVP, etc? Have you given any thought regarding the specific names of those awards?
  6. Alright, the Hurricanes are in the Victory Bowl! Although I will obviously be pulling for the Guardians, and would root for the Imperials if they were in, being the fan of Ohio and New York Teams I am. Also, how’s the TV contracts looking for the offseason? I’m intrigued by whether or not the AFA signs with NBC or sticks with ABC, and how that will affect the USFA’s TV contracts.
  7. Sad to hear about Bobby Sorel, but I’m happy to hear about expansion! There will be a Expansion Council held after the 1998-99 season, right? I’m already brainstorming ideas for my character that I plan on using for the council (Assuming there is one). EDIT: Sorry, didn’t read the expansion council part in your post.
  8. Wow, the USFA has some rather, ummm...interesting team names, that’s for sure! I’m looking forward to seeing how the logos and uniforms will be like. Also, have there been any other mid season coaching changes in the AFA prior to the Wasps in 1986? And who’s the new head coach for the Imperials?
  9. Not quite the result I was hoping for as far as the Lewis Cup is concerned, but oh well. I’m curious about the realignment this offseason, as well as if we will hear anything more about the expansion candidates.
  10. Out of all the updated uniforms, I find the Destroyers to have the best look of them all! The lighter shade of blue really compliments the gold more, in my opinion. Also, is there a chance of Philadelphia getting as USFA team should the Railers move? I can’t wait for the 1987 offseason!
  11. So much for the Civics repeating as I hoped. Oh well, I'll just hop on the Washington bandwagon then for the Lewis Cup Finals. They're due anyway.
  12. Wow, the Firebirds' new BFBS uniforms are actually pretty cool looking! Can't wait to see what the Destroyers and Bobcats' new looks will be like!
  13. Sorry I haven't been posting much, but while I'm disappointed by the Guardians being dethroned as AFA Champions, I have mixed emotions about the result of the past Victory Bowl. Seeing the Miners win it all isn't really all that new, but at least Rob Connery can call himself a champion at long last. Also, on an unrelated note (Mostly thinking ahead regarding the next AFA Expansion Council), do any real life video game companies such as Nintendo, Sega, etc. still exist in the AFA universe? While we're on that subject, will the USFA have any expansion councils as well? I'm looking forward to seeing how that dynamic plays out the most!
  14. Yay, the season was salvaged! And my Civics are on top of the Eastern Conference once again as well! Here's hoping for the repeat! Also, not that I'm trying to increase your workload, but have you ever given Conference logos any thought? The 1998 Lewis Cup Playoffs are going to be another fun one either way.
  15. Sonic Adventure references aside, I'm so happy to see the Guardians of Cincinnati finally bring an AFA Championship to the Queen City!
