    Minnesota Amateur Hockey League - 1940/41 Pre Season

    It's fitting due to Eveleth's smaller population - but I would have predicted the Reds and Rangers would've merged later.

    Let's go Black Bears! Win a fourth!
  3. Personally I'd say Milwaukee. The Knights have only made playoffs twice and never reached beyond the semi-finals. Milwaukee have made playoffs once and never reached beyond the quarter-finals. The Knights have been there for 14 seasons, the Dragons 9. So the mathematics declare Milwaukee to be more disappointing.

    But then in pretty much every country in the world except in the USA and Canada, the home team is listed first.
  5. A bit of a Western Bulldogs (then known as Footscray in 1961) style hoop pattern for the Walleyes. Looks good for Minnesota - the logo is amazing! Looking forward to the Los Angeles uniform set!
  6. To be honest, soccer uniforms weren't typically with big logos at the front. To look at the styles, just look at the website Historical Football Kits, it is a good resource. Link for uniforms in this era is shown here (it's 12 seasons later but the best with all teams) http://www.historicalkits.co.uk/English_Football_League/season/1914-1915.htm

    Driveball Redux (Washington Commanders tweaks for '55)

    Case for one bidder: McKenzie selects Cotton Leavelle, as Houston does not have a team in a major league. It brings top-flight sports to Houston for the first time and allows the league to enter new territory. His oil money will ensure the Houston team is well-funded.
  8. It wasn't the first time Montreal defeated the Falcons in Philadelphia - the Paulies beat the Falcons in Philadelphia in the 1956 playoffs. Unless you mean in the regular season.

    Actually Stillwater's population reaches its lowest point in the 1940 census. Plus, they would have a larger catchment area than the two Eveleth teams each (assuming Eveleth is split evenly), Ely, Two Harbors, Grand Rapids, Soudan and Cloquet (according to 1930 population figures). But no one wants to play for a team that always finishes last. The Iron Range towns and rural towns who have teams in the Lake Superior Hockey League would probably have more passionate players and more interest. But then Stillwater is suburban (only Cloquet would be considered suburban out of these whilst the others are rural towns).

    Possible theme song for Ely? (Derived from the first Brisbane Bears theme song) 1st Verse What do we sing when we run out to play? Dare to beat the Bear. What do we sing when we're on our way? Dare to beat the Bear. We're Hard! (We're Hard!) We're Mean! (We're Mean!) We're Strong! (We're Strong!) We're a Team! (We're a Team!) We're the strongest team you've ever seen, We're the Ely Black Bears! 2nd Verse What do we know before every game? We're going out to win! How do we know that we'll read the play? We won't let 'em in! We're Hard! (We're Hard!) We're Mean! (We're Mean!) We're Strong! (We're Strong!) We're a Team! (We're a Team!) We're the strongest team you've ever seen, We're the Ely Black Bears! 1st Bridge Our home is mighty Ely and we're playing for our town. The Bear will growl across the land, We will take the others down (down) 3rd Verse What do we shout when we sense their fear? Beware the mighty Bear! What are the words that we love to hear? Beware the mighty Bear! We're Tough! (We're Tough!) We're Keen! (We're Keen!) We're Good! (We're Good!) We're a Team! (We're a Team!) We're the strongest team you've ever seen, We're the Ely Black Bears! 2nd Bridge Our home is here in Ely and there is not a shade of doubt, Right around Minnesota, we're always on a rout! 3rd Verse - Repeated What do we shout when we sense their fear? Dare to beat the Bear! What are the words that we love to hear? Dare to beat the Bear! We're Tough! (We're Tough!) We're Keen! (We're Keen!) We're Good! (We're Good!) We're a Team! (We're a Team) We're the strongest team you've ever seen, We're the Ely Black Bears! Final verse We're Tough! (We're Tough!) We're Keen! (We're Keen!) We're Good! (We're Good!) We're a Team! (We're a Team!) We're the strongest team you've ever seen, We're the Ely Black Bears. We're the strongest team you've ever seen, We're the Ely Black Bears. Beware the mighty Black Bears!

    The Greyhounds somehow find a way to choke during the playoffs.
  12. LA should use the Guardians or Moguls as their nickname. Preferably use Los Angeles in the team name and not Hollywood. Minnesota should be the Muskies or the Walleyes.

    Oh no! I hope PUA stay - they are my favourite team in the league! Please don't finish last in the division!

    It doesn't help that Stillwater have won 15 wooden spoons in a row.
