    The World (League) According to Neo (2002 Semifinals)

    Have the playoff-teams with the 4 worst records have an opening round and the winners play the teams with the best and 2nd best record. All other matchups would be organized by 3 vs 14, 4 vs 13, 5 vs 12, 6 vs 11, 7 vs 10 and 8 vs 9. So it looks like those teams are the Rhythm, Claymores, Schooners and Argonauts. The winners of these games would play the Admirals and the Dragons. Opening Round Matchups appear to be Rhein at Scottish (by virtue of the Claymores being division winners) Toronto at Atlantic (by virtue of the Schooners finishing higher than the Argonauts)
  2. The Sound was already dead when they moved from Halifax. Didn't think the delay of their death would take a decade. Knowing that a lot of victims took refuge from Katrina in Houston is going to take special meaning in the 05-06 season. Looking forward to the New Claymores whenever they show up
  3. That design really shows that your creativity is more than budding. That design sort of lights up the league and I hope that this team doesn't go up in smoke this year.
  4. Found this article about the new San Diego Alliance of American Football team: http://archive.is/JxWyg Looks like you have people referencing this in real life, lol.

    We'll call them "The Kings of Heart". Make Sunrise pay big money to change it.

    The Monday Night Wars continuing with the help of ABC is the best thing to happen in this timeline. Aside from the NFL having a TRUE and HONEST AAA league that is.

    500, huh? How did the Punks even make it to the end of the season?
  8. Eh, bad ideas are part of the history of design. That said, if the Denver Bulls end up going back to red and green but their logo looks like a toupee, I'm going to want to smash something.

    Could happen in the future. But if there needs to be a team now then Saskatoon isn't a good choice without the stadium. Plus, Saskatchewan has less than 1,000,000 people at this time. More than enough to support 1 team in Regina. 2 is really pushing it.

    I'm going to think outside the box here because unless you want to put a team in Saskatoon, there really isn't a market large enough in Western Canada to justify a team that doesn't already have one. I'm picking Boise for this team to be grouped in with the other Canadian teams. Has the stadium, has the population and would be the only pro team in town. EDIT: Why would I not think Saskatoon is a great idea? Their largest outdoor stadium has less than 7,000 seats. Would need a new stadium to even be considered.
  11. It is an alternate timeline. Guessing that Nuggets fans are incredibly classy as well. On another note, with the new uniform contract coming up this offseason, I'm guessing that teams will wear their dark jerseys as the home jerseys again?

    If the World League is getting this big, if it were to somehow grow to 40 teams, would promotion and relegation come into play at some point?

    That and its fits with the whole "Keep Portland Weird" culture the city has. There is no weirder mascot than a platypus.
  15. The Twisters actually rebounded? Huh, they're reloading when I thought they were going to rebuild.

    I could really only see one team that the World League would accept from the XFL between the Los Angeles Avengers, the Oklahoma Wranglers and the Las Vegas Outlaws. And honestly, its probably between the last two unless there is an expansion of 3 teams in the Northern US/Canada and Europe which would allow 3 XFL teams to come in bringing the number of teams to 36. As for how I could see that happening, here would be the most likely markets for 3 future teams in those markets: Northern US/Canada 1. Quebec City 2. Halifax 3. Boise, Idaho Europe: 1. Moscow/St. Petersburg 2. Rome 3. Warsaw
  17. If there were musical motifs for teams, I could see the Nova Scotia Claymores having a sort of jaunty bagpipe tune to them that would probably would've played after they scored goals. Might've been the "Brass Bonanza" of this universe. Their successors? There are only a couple of themes that would work for the New Orleans Sound and they are "Entry of the Gladiators" or "Yakety Sax".

    The Punks have to be drawing in the triple digits at this point. What's McMahon's contingency assuming that the XFL lives to 2001? EDIT: BAC above legal limits anywhere
  19. I could see a situation where the PHL expands into Halifax and another unconventional market (let's say Pheonix). I do love that Claymores identity and it would be a shame if it was let to rot in the dustbin of history.
  20. The Sound might be headed to Houston. Cardsblues02 is about to get his wish granted. What a timeline.

    Trent Taylor Age: 35 Bio: Trent Taylor has been a season-ticket holder for the Raleigh-Durham Skyhawks since they came back in 1994. He called into work sick the day after thw Skyhawks won the World Bowl. He has decided to go with Portland as the site for the 32nd Franchise believing that placing a team in Nashville would force the Hound Dogs to move out of the state. As for the mascot, he suggests Pioneers to reflect the history of the Oregon Trail and Portland's progressive civic culture.

    Don't mean to be pedantic, but the PS2 didn't come out in North America until 2000. So, it would be for the PS1 and maaaaybe the Dreamcast when it comes out later in 1999.
