  1. I guess I'm ready to jump on the Edmonton bandwagon!
  2. Then welcome to the ABL! Just letting you know, I plan on posting the championship tomorrow and I am unveiling new looks for New York, Minnesota and Chicago as well.
  3. Alright guys. I'm back. For a back-story. In 1950, 10 elite basketball teams throughout the Midwest joined forces to create the American Basketball League. This project is pretty much like Veras' AFA, I have already finished a draft and I'm working on getting the rosters set up. And now, here are the divisions for you. Current year: 1959 ABL West Chicago Redshirts Kansas City Rivermen Milwaukee Stags Minnesota Oxen St. Louis Archers ABL Central Akron Bobcats Baltimore Admirals Cincinnati Blues Cleveland Bulldogs Detroit Lakers ABL East Atlanta Gladiators Boston Dragons Miami Marauders New York Patriots Philadelphia Minutemen Pittsburgh Rhinos Titles by team: Chicago - 2 (1956, 1959) Cincinnati - 1 (1955) Columbus/Baltimore - 1 (1951) Detroit - 2 (1954, 1958) Grand Rapids/Kansas City - 1 (1952) Philadelphia - 1 (1953) Pittsburgh - 1 (1957) And, in order for me to not get another warning, here's the league logo. I had trouble coming up with a good logo, but this was the result I got. The eagle in the logo is based on the one used on those old quarters you find in your change. C&C is welcome.
  4. I was going to get those playoff templates done, but it was slowing me down anyway. It is also worth noting that a new round of the playoffs, the ABL Semifinals, has been introduced, since we have a 3-division alignment. The best playoff team gets a bye into the finals, so the other 2 teams duke it out in the Semifinals. Here are the playoffs! 1960 ABL Playoffs ABL Division Semifinals ABL West Chicago vs. St. Louis Game 1 @CHI: 103-90 CHI Game 2 @STL: 117-109 CHI Game 3 @CHI: 99-93 CHI Kansas City vs. Milwaukee Game 1 @MIL: 97-91 KC Game 2 @KC: 105-92 MIL Game 3 @MIL: 112-96 MIL Game 4 @KC: 114-100 KC Game 5 @MIL: 120-101 MIL ABL Central Baltimore vs. Detroit Game 1 @BAL: 122-119 BAL Game 2 @DET: 99-93 BAL Game 3 @BAL: 106-97 BAL Akron vs. Cleveland Game 1 @CLE: 105-93 CLE Game 2 @AKR: 106-100 AKR Game 3 @CLE: 110-94 AKR Game 4 @AKR: 118-100 AKR ABL East Pittsburgh vs. New York Game 1 @PIT: 117-102 PIT Game 2 @NY: 103-90 PIT Game 3 @PIT: 119-98 PIT Boston vs. Philadelphia Game 1 @PHI: 115-97 BOS Game 2 @BOS: 110-107 BOS Game 3 @PHI: 125-117 BOS ABL Division Finals ABL West Chicago vs. Milwaukee Game 1 @CHI: 109-97 CHI Game 2 @MIL: 117-106 MIL Game 3 @CHI: 117-96 CHI Game 4 @MIL: 116-97 CHI ABL Central Baltimore vs. Akron Game 1 @AKR: 100-94 AKR Game 2 @BAL: 116-106 AKR Game 3 @AKR: 112-102 BAL Game 4 @BAL 95-92 BAL Game 5 @AKR 99-95 BAL ABL East Pittsburgh vs. Boston Game 1 @PIT: 107-104 BOS Game 2 @BOS: 107-91 BOS Game 3 @PIT: 121-94 PIT Game 4 @BOS: 106-103 BOS ABL Semifinals Baltimore vs. Boston Game 1 @BOS: 106-102 BAL Game 2 @BAL: 96-92 BAL Game 3 @BOS: 120-111 BAL I'm also thinking about playoff summaries...
  5. Will this Cleveland team be an expansion team or a relocated team? Cleveland Claymores has a nice ring to it.
  6. Huh. But yet college/minor league hockey, baseball and basketball coexist. (not to mention soccer)
  7. Well, the Pack is out I guess. LET'S GO OUTLAWS!
  8. Can't wait for the Tigers...
  9. What about green and light/powder blue? I think that when I'll unveil the uniforms I'll let people decide which color scheme is the best. It seems like I can't put out the new playoff games tonight because the resolution of the template was too high.
  10. I've already come up with Cascaders, if it's alright with you. But, I could use a green and silver color scheme to imply that Emeralds was one of Seattle's choices.
  11. And now, 2 of the moments you have all been waiting for! Numero uno, the Dallas Outlaws! (note: Seattle had trouble coming up with a good identity for the Trappers, so their uniforms will be unveiled in 1961 with a new identity) and numero dos, the 1959-60 ABL Season! ABL West y - Chicago Redshirts x - Kansas City Rivermen x - Milwaukee Stags x - St. Louis Archers Minnesota Oxen ABL Central y - Baltimore Admirals x - Akron Bobcats x - Cleveland Bulldogs x - Detroit Lakers Cincinnati Blues ABL East y - Pittsburgh Rhinos x - Boston Dragons x - Philadelphia Minutemen x - New York Patriots Atlanta Gladiators Miami Mauraders Tomorrow I will be posting the playoffs, and I will work on some new playoff templates to make the experience more interesting.
  12. Liking the numbers, the logo is solid. I predict that the Claymores and possibly the Spirits will change their looks in '92.
  13. St. Louis wins, I guess. Oops. sorry about that...
  14. I've seen it on a sign for my local chamber of commerce. Weird place for Comic Sans if I do say so myself.
  15. A lot of the jerseys are amazing. I particularly liked what you did with Chicago as well as Manitoba's number font.
  16. I'm a Green Bay fan in Lions country so I wouldn't be exactly devastated if they moved. If they're gone for good, then I might as well root for Minnesota (I don't hate them as much as Chicago and *seethes* Detroit)
  17. Now THAT (!) is a real Super Bowl. Can't wait for the next season!
  18. Well, there goes Detroit... I'm all for Montreal on this one because don't we think we've had enough of the St. Louis dynasty?
  19. Just saw the same post from you in the PHL forum, and I thought about it, but I'm thinking about an Arby's-esque cowboy hat with a D on it. Maybe a secondary logo?
  20. Who knew, the ABA actually had a team called the Los Angeles Stars. However, they later relocated to Salt Lake City and folded.
  21. I just finished binge-reading this forum, I guess I am caught up now. Let's go 'Stangs!
  22. Here's an Easter gift for you guys: 2 more teams. Los Angeles and Atlanta. I have been working on Seattle and it's difficult coming up with a good idea for Dallas. Los Angeles Stars Atlanta Gladiators
  23. Here's the new and improved Miami Marauders. Realizing part of the cutlass looked like a "D", I redid the primary logo, but kept the (modified) original logo as a secondary. The secondary logo has also moved from the side to the front of the shorts.
  24. Might this be an improvement? Oh yeah, here's Miami...
  25. Here's all I've got for tonight: The Colorado Kodiaks (who will begin playing in the 1960-61 season)
