  1. Congrats on the little one! Oh yeah, here's The Great One as a Northern Light (I wanted to see what a real hockey player looked like in a PHL uniform)
  2. 1961-62 ABL Season National Conference y - Chicago Redshirts (N) x - Minnesota Oxen (N) x - Milwaukee Stags (N) y - St. Louis Archers (W) x - Detroit Lakers (N) x - Colorado Kodiaks (W) Kansas City Rivermen (W) Cincinnati Blues (N) Los Angeles Stars (W) Seattle Cascaders (W) American Conference y - Pittsburgh Rhinos (E) y - Indianapolis Checkers (S) x - Baltimore Admirals (S) x - Boston Dragons (E) x - New York Patriots (E) x - Miami Marauders (S) Cleveland Bulldogs (E) Atlanta Gladiators (S) Philadelphia Minutemen (E) Dallas Outlaws (S) This season saw some changes in the divisional alignment. Chicago managed to get back in 1st place, with rival Minnesota right behind them. Cincinnati also appears to be in a slump. Having not made the playoffs since the 1950s, the Blues have lost fan support and have the worst attendance of any ABL team. The team is on the brink of relocation and the ABL has given them a relocation deadline of 1966-67.
  3. My mistake. I thought that rule only applied to playoff games, but oh well... Edit: Fixed the Finals game
  4. The font I found came that way. For some reason, I feel it looks right for old times.
  5. Fixed. Here's the 1961 ABL Finals! Chicago vs. Pittsburgh Game 1 @CHI: 112-90 PIT Game 2 @PIT: 119-115 PIT Game 3 @CHI: 97-90 PIT This year's match pitted 2 powerful teams: The dynastic Chicago Redshirts who have managed to beat a higher-finishing Milwaukee Stags in the playoffs, and the Pittsburgh Rhinos, who have one of the ABL's most powerful defense. When the two teams began to duke it out, Pittsburgh had the advantage no matter what. They were able to beat Chicago on their home court twice (!), and the Rhinos surprised many in this Finals upset. Pittsburgh wins in a 3-game sweep! (Okay, I'm changing the number of playoff games next season)
  6. Before the 1961 Finals, 3 teams have unveiled new uniforms for the 1961-62 season. We'll start with one of the 1961 expansion teams, the Seattle Cascaders! Primary Logo Uniforms Next is yet another 1961 expansion team, the (reincarnated) Indianapolis Checkers! Primary Logo And finally, we have the Kansas City Rivermen, who have finally introduced a new logo and made white more prominent in their uniforms. Primary Logo Secondary Logo Uniforms C&C is appreciated.
  7. These jerseys are solid (I am a fan of Boston's), but my only question is: Where are the helmets? Other than that, it's all good. 😎

  9. I'm not really a follower of soccer, but I like what I see. I say the Blue/White/Gold color scheme would work best. I'm also all for the steering wheel logo.
  10. I had USBL, but I guess USBA would work as well. And for the franchise thing, I've already planned out 6 charter franchises in Houston, Phoenix, Nawlins, San Fran, Buffalo and DC. And let's not get ahead of ourselves here. We've got 10 more seasons until the USBA starts!
  11. We don't have expansion plans right now, we're growing a little too fast anyway. But, I plan on there being a rival league by 1970. And of course, we will merge with this rival league. I am also working on signatures if anybody wants them.
  12. Hey, I've already got the Dallas Outlaws in the ABL. (And they just played their first season, too)
  13. Name ideas: Cleveland Penguins (I was about to post Lake Erie Penguins) Dallas Desperados
  14. I think it will be interesting to see the Gens improve. As for Dallas, I do agree that the Metros was a good name. They'll probably don a Metros throwback in the 2010s, but who knows...
  15. Doing so would change their original brighter color scheme, as well as their logo. I'll see what I can do.
