    Yeah, and what cities will the AAFL add? Will they go to Mexico and Canada?

    Yes and the Columbus owner said he could see the league triple in size. Jaworski is smart though. Everyone is hopping Cleveland comes back and that was part of the reason for Columbus.

    Does Raleigh even want a team? See Skyhawks, Raleigh. Will the league expand to 10 next year? If they are smart, they will keep it at 8. I really like what Ron Jaworski is doing with the Arena League – starting (again) slowly...getting Ted Leonis on board...building rivalries. AC/Philly, Baltimore/Washington. I wish Tampa Bay and Orlando were still around.

    Except San Antonio in year 1. Trust me. I have all the jerseys – all game worn. I even have a home Orlando Thunder gamer.

    And the league commissioner, Oliver Luck is a real db but he does get results. He has jumped from job to job to job. WLAF Galaxy GM to league commissioner to NRG Stadium commission president to the Houston Dynamo to West Virginia, etc. We will see if he stays in this job at all. So the league signed Bob Stoops. his smells like the Miami USFL team- Howard Schellenburger situation.

    The WLAF never had templates uniforms. If you have a program from the first year, there is an article about how NFL Properties came up with the uniform designs. The Birmingham Fire never had sleeve stripes. They had flames. Sacramento had aqua sleeves and white body and all white body on the road. Frankfurt never had sleeve stripes. When the league came back in '95, Reebok and NFL Properties designed the jerseys with the logos on the body. Unfortunately, that craze carried over into the CFL (Toronto, Memphis, etc.)

    The four horsemen (cities?) of the apocalypse – San Antonio, Birmingham, Orlando and Memphis have been home to 18 different football teams.

    Missed payroll....what a surprise. 11,000 in Memphis....something like 18,000 in Arizona...did the league factor in these numbers win their projections? The league won't make it to year 2, and neither will the XFL, if they launch at all. If the AAFL makes it to year 2, I expect Memphis will be bound for Raleigh. I think people are sick of fly-by-night leagues. The four horsemen of the apocalypse: San Antonio Wings Gunslingers Riders Texans Orlando Blazers Renegades Thunder Rage Tuskers Birmingham Americans/Vulcans Stallions Fire Barracudas Bolts Memphis Grizzlies (Southmen) Showboats Mad Dogs Maniaxx 18 teams among the 4 cities, and if the AAFL fails, it will be 22.

    The World Football League had templated designs. The only team that didn't use the templates was Birmingham. If anyone has a program from 1974, the cover features a shot of Gary Davidson, and on the wall behind him are all the uniforms. By the way, don't you think fans in Birmingham and Memphis are tired of fly-by-night leagues?

    Possible workaround for the 'One Helmet Rule'

    What if some teams put a thin foam padding between the layers? Willie Lanier had a "bumper guard" – vulcanized rubber down the middle of his helmet.

    Wow are the logos and names lame!

    The names for the first 4 teams are lame and clueless.

    Atlanta Legends? Lame. Who with the Falcons is/was a legend? Matt Ryan? Tommy Nobis? Memphis Express? The NBA would not allow the Grizzlies to use that name. No doubt a partnership with FedEx. Birmingham Iron? Anyone remember the Birmingham Vulcans? Orlando Apollos? Ugh. Didn't work so well for the NASL team, did it?
