    Hockey Card

    Ronald Reagan and Hockey are like my two favorite things, so this makes me really excited.

    CHL Teams

    Any other Americans have favorite CHL teams? My favorites are Halifax in the Q, Mississauga in the OHL, and Spokane in the WHL. Yes, you could probably guess which NHL team I'm a fan of. Also, in the cases of Halifax and Mississauga, I really like their uniforms, and my grandmother was born in Newfoundland, so I like Halifax for being a Maritime team. Also, Spokane is a US team, although, if we're talking about US teams, I actually like Everett's uniforms better.

    Favorite jersey number?

    The maturity on this thread is shocking. I would think that every other answer would be... well, you know. Anyway, I don't play sports, but if I did, I've always liked 12, because it's both the month and the day. I like 24 for the same reason. I like 44 because 12X12=144 and 44 is the end of that. Also, because Miles Wood. Yes, Miles Wood is one of my favorite players. Also the 4 part of 144 I like. Also a Devil great, who was my favorite player when I was very young. 14 is the number from the 1st two digits, so I like that and also Adam Henrique is responsible for one of my favorite sports moments ever. I like 30 (pretty self-explanatory, considering my other picks), I like 26 and 27 (same). I've come to really appreciate 13, for the future best player to ever come from a non-Big Six country. I also like the way 63 looks on Jesper Bratt. Those are my picks.
  4. NHL Metropolitan: Columbus Blue Jackets- I like their uniforms, I like Panarin, I like Jones, I like Werenski, I like Jenner, I like Dubois, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the fact that their initials of the team name are BJ (My dad pointed that one out). NFC East: Philadelphia Eagles- I like Carson Wentz, I like Napoleon... er, uh, Nick Foles, and I used to have a lot of my medical issues dealt with in Philadelphia and that city treated me really well and I love that city AL East: Toronto Blue Jays- I like the city of Toronto, I really like their stadium, I like Josh Donaldson NBA Atlantic- Philadelphia 76ers- Joel Embiid is my literal favorite person in all of sports. I like Simmons. I love Philadelphia, I like their uniforms. The Process rivals Joel Embiid's Twitter for the greatest trolling in NBA history. AI's "Practice" is another one of my favorite things. Honestly I love this team in so many ways. Premier League- Everton- Honestly, I just love Liverpool. The Beatles are from there and it brought in the most Irish refugees from the Famine.

    Concept Thread Think Tank

    Has anyone thought of the idea of an "Inhabitable Antarctica" league? The idea is that you imagine that by some physical difference, Antarctica is inhabitable. Either create cities or make the modern research stations the cities. The thing I'm concerned about is that one might need a full alternate history for this. If someone wants to take this on, I can even provide you with that. I can even provide the cities and the names. I can provide everything but the logos and jerseys. I don't know what sport, but probably hockey because I think Antarctica would be inhabitable, but still somewhat cold. (I imagine most of it would be like Canada, with cold winters and temperate summers.) I'm envisioning a unified former British colony, like USA, Canada, and Australia (because the British conquered everything).
  6. I just finished looking through that thread that was where everyone posted a fictional college, the Sportslogos College Athletic Association. While that was brilliant, it is dead. I intend to restart it under a different name. Same format, Name, nickname, location, colors, logo, fun facts, background under, but no rule on the metro cities. I have an idea so I'll start. It's visually a little rushed plus it's in paint. I'll work on it. Name: Julio Lobo University (Universidad de Julio Lobo) Nickname: Reyes (Kings) Location: Miami, FL Colors: Red and Blue of the Cuban flag and royal Purple. https://imgur.com/n9yqkTS In this timeline, Cuban sugar mogul Julio Lobo's fateful October 11, 1960 meeting with Ernesto "Che" Guevara results in Lobo fleeing to Miami, but he found a way to get his money through. Lobo, ever the philanthropist, founded Universidad de Julio Lobo in 1963. It was, and continues to be mostly for business, as Lobo was a great businessman. There is also a large agricultural component, again connected to the founding by Lobo, a sugar mogul. Sports came soon. Lobo being from Latin America, soccer and baseball were obviously first, but they were quickly followed by football, basketball, tennis, golf, and any other sport I may be missing, except ice hockey. There's field hockey, but it's Miami. No ice hockey. Lacrosse recently came in newer. The teams were named Los Reyes as a reference to Lobo's nickname, "El Rey de Azucar de Havana" (The Sugar King of Havana). They generally started going more by the English names in the 1980s, but the Spanish names are the official names. As it is a newer school, they are somewhat light on traditions, but that does not stop the student body of around 20,000 from packing Estadio Montalvo (another rich Cuban family Lobo married into) on Saturdays for the football games.

    The Hockey Project

    I actually like what you tried to do. I like the colors, but the stripe on the bottom, I don't know what it is, but it just looks really awkward. Maybe add some blue to make it pop a little more and to go better with the "sea" part of the Seabirds theme. Not even a lot. Changing the bird head might also work. Not bad but can be better. Where subtle blue can go is in the eye instead of the red. Maybe the collar too, but I actually really like the sand color. It's different.

    The Hockey Project

    I fully expect this to be the greatest thing to ever happen to this website. I'm not saying it will be, but based on what it is, it seems like it.
  9. Might I suggest a new location, even if it waits until the next expansion? Neptune. The Neptune Hurricanes. The name works, as Neptune was the Roman god of the sea and of sea storms. That or the Pirates. Or the Tide, or really anything sea-themed. I see a really cool blue uniform. It's outer. Very outer. Are there cities that far out? If so, I would love to see a Neptune team either now or down the road. Of the locations that are already listed, of course Lake Armstrong would be the first and best option. I like the Pioneers name. Ganymede City is a great option, but I would hold off until you can get the other teams in there. Isla Mendez is a great option. I say name them the Conquistadores, a double meaning, referencing both the Spanish conquest of the American continent and man's conquest of space. I don't have a third choice.

    Hey guys I'm new to the forums and I'm going to be writing a fictional league modeled after Hawkfan89's Professional Hockey League. My league is called the Premier League of North American Football, and it is a double alternate history. Not only is the league fictional, but the sport itself is fictional. This supposes that the development of football took another path, separate from Association Football and Gridiron Football. This football is more like handball, except there are no movement rules, it is played on a soccer field, with three attack, three midfielders, and three defensemen and a goalie, like lacrosse. Body checking is allowed, within reason, essentially following hockey rules, but not modern hockey rules, '90s hockey rules. There is no out of play. Instead, all of the stadiums have walls a little bit like baseball walls, but they function like hockey boards. There is no offsides, either, neither the hockey version, nor the soccer version, nor the lacrosse version. By the modern era, teams carry four lines of each type of player, like in hockey, except there are only two goalies. The games are four 15-minute quarters. As far as the league goes, well, you'll have to wait and see how it unfolds. Right now, I have the full league created, but it will come little by little through gradual expansion. I don't have logos or uniforms for all of them yet, which, by the way, the uniform looks like a soccer uniform with a rugby helmet. I am working on those. Another note is that all of the teams in the league are named after defunct teams throughout sports except one. I thought a league like that would be fun, so don't be offput by that. Another note is the way the conferences work. There is an Eastern Conference and a Western Conference without division. The playoff matchups are purely based on the ranking within the conference, which is determined by points, which works exactly the same way as the NHL, except there is no shootout. Overtime is not timed, it is just golden goal. Playoff series' are best-of-7. So I think I've said all the things about the league that I've wanted to say, so without further ado, welcome to the Premier League of North American Football. If you have any other rules questions, ask in the comments. When World War I ended in 1918, the United States came off of this event very successfully, but also needing to heal from the War to End All Wars. By 1920, it was decided by former hockey star and World War I veteran Hobey Baker, who had not died in the plane crash as in real life, as he had taken his own plane home, that a football league would be created. While not as skilled at football, it was Baker's first love, and Baker founded the Premier league of North American Football on his 29th birthday, January 15th, 1921, with himself as commissioner. While Baker was young, he was Princeton educated, with immense knowledge of sports. Baker created a ten team league. In the East were to be the New York Americans, the Boston Beaneaters, the Brooklyn Dodgers, the New Jersey Revolution, and Baker's hometown Philadelphia Warriors. In the West were to be the Pittsburgh Pipers, the Detroit Wolverines, the Chicago Stags, the Cleveland Spiders, and the Cincinnati Mohawks. Each time was to play every other team in their conference thrice, for a total of twelve conference games, and to play each non-conference team twice, for a total of ten non-conference games, for a grand total of 22 games. The league would start two months after the founding, on March 15, 1921, with the final games being played on May 31 of that year, as each team played twice per week. In the East, New York came within one game of going undefeated behind the stellar goalkeeping of Jarvis Pearsall, losing to Boston in the season's final game. New York and Boston made the playoffs from the East. Chicago and Detroit made it from the west. Eastern Conference championship The heavily favored New York Americans faced off against the Boston Beaneaters in this best of seven series. New York won the first game of this series 12-2. Pearsall was the player of the game. In the next game, New York again routed Boston 17-4. New York's starting center midfielder, Isaac Barlow, scored five goals and got four assists to be the player of the game. In Game 3 back in Boston, Beaneaters left midfielder Rowland Cobb potted a goal in overtime to give Boston an 8-7 victory. Then came Game 4: The Empire Strikes Back as the Americans put up an absurd 30-goal showing, compared to 5 for the Beaneaters. Barlow was again player of the game, with seven goals and ten assists. Game 5 saw New York take the series 15-11. This game was good because they won the series, but bad because both of their stars were injured. Barlow left the game in the third quarter after a violent open field collision left him unconscious for two minutes, while Pearsall sprained his ankle making a save in the first quarter. Pearsall is expected to play in the Baker Cup Finals, while Barlow may never play football again. His spot in the lineup will be taken by Joey Ebersole, who ended up scoring twice and adding three assists in that game. Defenseman Edwin Palmer was the player of the game, scoring three times, with four assists, and blocking five shots. Western Conference championship The Chicago Stags were slightly favored against the Detroit Wolverines. In Chicago, the Wolverines won Game 1 by a score of 19-14. Center forward Cecil Kind scored a whopping ten goals, to go with five assists. The Stags evened the series at 1 in the next game by a score of 13-10. Kind was again player of the game even in a loss, scoring 8 of his team's ten goals, and getting assists on the two others. Any good feelings that Detroit had about escaping Chicago with a split were quickly obliterated, as the Wolverines were actually shut out in the next game, which had not happened to any team all season. It was fortunate, too, as Chicago only scored 8 goals. Of course, Chicago goalie Lucius Church was named player of the game. Kind came back with another 15 point performance, with 8 goals and 7 assists in a 20-9 drubbing of Chicago. Detroit made it two wins in a row, beating Chicago 14-8. Detroit right midfielder Carl Tollman was the player of the game, with 7 goals and five assists. All five of his assists were on Kind goals. Detroit ended the series 16-14 on six goals in the final two minutes, split evenly between Kind and Tollman. Tollman would again be the player of the game with eight goals and six assists. Baker Cup Finals New York was heavily favored, even without Isaac Barlow. They would win the first matchup 15-4, as Pearsall was again the player of the game. Detroit struck back in the next one, with Pearsall being pulled in the first quarter after giving up eight goals. Detroit would win 25-17. Wolverines center midfielder George Rickowsky scored eight goals and dished out 10 assists to be player of the game. Detroit won the next game with a decidedly lower score. They won this one 12-11 in overtime, with Cecil Kind scoring the golden goal. Rickowsky, however, won player of the game, with four goals and eight assists. New York would win the next game 19-7, with Palmer scoring eight goals to go with eight assists to be player of the game. Detroit would strike back with a 10-7 victory. Detroit goalie Preston Allward would be player of the game. Detroit then had one game to go to win the inaugural Baker Cup. Detroit came out firing and Pearsall stopped nearly all of it, leading New York to a 12-3 win. Game 7 was played in New York with the winner taking home the Baker Cup. It was a back and forth, high scoring affair, with both goalies being replaced by their backups. The game was tied at 19 at the end of regulation. Overtime began with a large surprise, as a familiar face, Isaac Barlow, trotted out to take the faceoff. Barlow would give New York the Baker Cup after two minutes on a rocket from the high slot. Pearsall won playoff MVP. Well, that's the 1921 season, if you liked it, let me know. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Let me know what I did right and what I did wrong and what you would change. If you read all of this, because I know it's a lot, thank you. and I'll hit you with season two sometime soon.

    I've decided to continue this fictional history on a blog that I created. I realized that this is a design forum, not a fiction forum, and that I am simply not good at the specialties of this website, nor is it my particular passion. I realize that my lack of good designs may have disappointed you, and for that I apologize. For this reason, I am discontinuing this fictional league on this website. It will continue on the blog that I created for it. I'll provide the link of the blog, and if any of you want to check it out and read more, that would be pretty cool. I did this because I saw a bunch of cool stuff that looked like something I have a great passion for. The writing aspect of it, I do have a great passion for. The illustrating aspect, not so much. I'm sorry, to the moderators, I'm sorry I disobeyed the rules, but without further ado, here is the link. https://plnaf.blogspot.com/

  15. Hi! I'm new to the forums. This is my fictional professional basketball league, the Premier League of North American basketball. It's a 40 team league with an Eastern Conference table and a Western Conference table, and the winners of each table play a series for the championship. I'm not good at drawing, by hand or digitally, so I was hoping that any of you incredibly talented people would make logos and/or jerseys for me. I put in the team colors for the teams. Thanks in advance for anyone who wants to undertake this project! EASTERN CONFERENCE: Montreal Musketeers- blue, gold Toronto Tories- Red, white Boston Massacre- red, white, green New York Empire- silver, black New York Subways- black, orange, purple Detroit Motor- Red, black, blue Philadelphia Framers- tan (the color of the paper the Constitution is written on) and black Washington Commanders- red, white, blue Baltimore Bombardment- Blue, white Cincinnati Centurions- red, gold Charleston Swamp Foxes- red, brown Atlanta Travelers- red, black Carolina Kings- purple, Carolina blue Miami Missiles- red, blue, brown Tampa Tortoises- Blue, green Kentucky Colonels- purple, white San Juan Leones- red, yellow, blue Chicago Outfit- Black, white Nashville Mountaineers-Black, green, gray Santo Domingo Draques- red, blue WESTERN CONFERENCE: St. Louis Crusaders- yellow, white, Minnesota Marauders- Orange, yellow New Orleans Hickory- Brown, green Kansas City Stallions- black, blue Dallas Colts- Brown, gold Houston Apollos- Orange, black Monterrey Vaqueros- brown, black Denver High- green, white Calgary Bighorns- green, gold, brown Arizona Scorpions- red, black Vancouver Beavers- brown, blue Seattle Emeralds- Green, white Oregon Trail- green, blue San Francisco Cables- red, white Las Vegas Blackjacks- black, red Los Angeles Osos- brown, black Los Angeles Dominions- silver, gold San Diego Gauchos- Celeste blue, white Honolulu Islanders- blue, tan Anchorage Wild Salmon- salmon, black, green
