  1. I'd like to think that all of America were glued to ABC that weekend based on the quality of those games in the AFA Universe. That being said, what would the likelihood be of Baltimore trying to exploit Colorado's superstition about wearing blue in the playoffs like how many teams have done hosting the Cowboys?
  2. Disappointing to see the Crows lose, but I have to give Benham credit for (literally) gutting it out. Again though, I was not expecting to have a rooting interest in the playoffs until 1985, so I can't complain about how the season ended. That being said, I'm thinking that Texas is going to give the Guardians a closer fight than people think, but the three-headed monster that heads the Cincinnati offense is going to be too much in the end I think Colorado beats Atlanta, actually. Atlanta may have had a great regular season, but Colorado has a lot of recent postseason experience and that is going to count when they need it to count. The Battle of New York is going to end up with a score that belongs more in the Arena League. Katz versus Adams will be an unexpected show, but the Imperials take some home-field advantage and start pulling away in the second half as the Sharks get stopped like they're criminal scum. And finally, the most unlikely postseason matchup: California versus Baltimore. I think this will probably be a low-scoring affair. Whales win in a snooze-fest as Cashmore shuts down Lee. On an unrelated note, when would the Kanter Dome be likely to host a Victory Bowl?
  3. Also, noticed an interesting quirk, the Royals are playing Kansas City in the playoffs.
  4. The Crows made the playoffs, didn't see that coming. Still, pleasant to see that maybe we didn't make the wrong choice in picking Benham over Fryer after all. I think KC wins, but it'll be a close game. And then we're on to Atlanta. EDIT: Wrong city (was Cincinnati until I saw Texas was playing them)
  5. I'll throw my pick behind the Dallas Barons and I can't think of a name for Cleveland.
  6. If a competent person who is willing to invest in the team comes forward. Otherwise, we're seeing a relocation. However, that would definitely be hilarious. My bets would be on the Wizards having a botched redesign.
  7. Or we could get something like the Gorton's fisherman but as a pilot?
  8. Darn, so close Twisters. Oh well, let's get ready for next year. Still, playoffs look interesting with about every contending team aside from the Choppers not having had a Lewis Cup victory either in quite awhile or ever.
  9. Personally, I think this is closer to the Quebec Nordiques moving than the Minnesota North Stars. Nova Scotia translates to New Scotland and a claymore is a Scottish two-handed sword. It fits the region too well to work in another market IMO.
  10. Cleveland Thrashers? Like the genre of metal, not the bird.
  11. Cleveland Lakers has a nice ring to it.
  12. I feel like I'm in the minority here, but I think the Spirits are probably only going to make minor adjustments at most to their logo. They've won 5 Lewis Cups in the last 10 years, I don't think they're changing their logos anytime soon. Same with the Choppers. Im thinking that it's going to be the Bulls that'll change their uniforms next year, especially because they are moving into a new arena soon. What better way to celebrate moving into a new arena than to change the uniform?
  13. That look screams 80's. If they have a lot of success while wearing this uniform, I could see it become a popular throwback once the mid-2000's come around along with their 1952 uniforms.
  14. The Twisters didn't too bad for an expansion team. Looking forward to a playoff berth in the near future if they keep getting better.
  15. A man with the last name Thomas has the single-game sack record with 7 sacks. I like the sound of that. Let's Go Ghosts! Also, I can totally see Detroit's defense being called the Ghostbusters when that movie comes out.
  16. Looking forward to seeing what the Comets new look would be. I remember seeing that black and neon green were planned at some point, but what would the uniforms look like with a redesign in 1983? Maybe the Comets are the team that starts the 90's a few years early?
  17. Went through the various wildcard scenarios and heres what I have assuming there's a sort of reseeding afterwards. If DET beats PIT and CIN beats SD Quarterfinal Matchups NY at CLE BAL at DET SEA at MIN TEX at CIN If DET beats PIT and SD beats CIN NY at CLE BAL at DET SD at MIN SEA at TEX If PIT beats DET and CIN beats SD PIT at CLE NY at MIN BAL at CIN SEA at TEX If PIT beats DET and SD beats CIN PIT at CLE NY at MIN BAL at TEX SD at SEA So, if the last scenario happens, how much security would there be at the Emerald Dome? EDIT: Also, with the Royals making the playoffs, how have the negotiations gone for the new stadium?
  18. If the Guardians win this game, they would've doubled their number of playoff victories. Only team that has been worse with at least 5 playoff appearances has been the San Francisco/California Whales with an 0-5 playoff record.
  19. Bold statement by Bill Truman. Let's see if the team he built can back him up.
  20. I can definitely understand wanting to keep the Sharks' look relatively conservative for now. Also like keeping the same sort of uniform color scheme from Buffalo as a temporary way of tying New Jersey to it's old home. The new playoff bracket looks great! It states all relevant information in an easy-to-follow format. I actually have a pretty good idea what is going on here.
  21. I'll go for Orange/Blue but with a blue jersey and an orange helmet. EDIT: Nevermind that. Ideally, the Blue/Charcoal combo works best, but I don't see that color combo working until the mid-90's. I'd say keep the orange and red color scheme until then, but that's just my opinion.
  22. Looking forward to having a rooting interest now. The uniforms really do look like they're sort of trying to adhere to some tradition, but they also want to move forward as well. I do like that tornado, though. Reminds me of the 90's Penguins logo.
  23. Love the new Sharks helmet. Considering that they're loading up on defense, I'm thinking they pull a Colorado Avalanche (or Los Angeles Comets) and win the Victory Bowl in their first year there. Either way, next season sounds like it's going to be the most exciting yet. There are so many contenders like New Jersey, New York, San Diego, Texas, Arizona, Colorado and maybe Cleveland might be a dark horse candidate. As for the Crows, I'd say going at least 6-10 would be a promising sign.
  24. Those West Germany uniforms are making me flash back to the Dallas Metros. Same level of performance too.
  25. No kidding. Once we hit the 90's, there are going to potentially be a lot of teams that would be in a position to move. After all, the 90's is where we started seeing the "Give me a new stadium for free that I'll sell the naming rights to or we'll move" trope being put into play.
