    USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    I would love for that to happen but I don't think Minnesota is big enough for the World Cup. US Bank Stadium might have gotten a game if the States had it sooner because by then the place will be 10 years old and the only reason the super bowl was here is because US Bank is the nicest stadium in the league because of it being very young

    USA-Mexico-Canada Joint Bid for 2026 World Cup

    Sorry to tell you but Allianz Field might not even be 20,000 seats. Despite US Bank Stadium being 10 for that World Cup if there is a game in Minnesota it's US Bank Stadium

    Logos & Uniforms that remind you of something else

    Ever since I saw the fighting Sioux logo for the first time I always thought it looked like the Blackhawks

    Thank you all so much for the criticism and advice. The league logo will be out later. Also the uniforms for Vice Cycling Club and Target Cycling Club.

    I am putting the logo on the back burner for now. I feel like uniforms are more my strong suit than logos. Anyways draft is tommorow (today?), expect it early

    Ok here is the final logo. The 10 spokes represent the original 10 teams in the league. The purple represents that the sport is "fancy" because purple is associated with royalty. The yellow represents (good color schemes) gold to further hammer in cycling so "fancy" reputation. The font represents that the league is relatively futuristic. The oval represents the common shape of the tracks. now onto the draft

    June 17th 2018: Thomas Kazinsky announces via his Twitter account that the league original 10 draft starts on September 20th 2018 with the first and second rounds of the 10 round draft. June 18th 2018: Kazinsky releases a document explaining the draft in more detail, the document is like this: All 10 teams will draft from an 80 player pool of 10 rounds. The reason for the extra 4 rounds is to strengthen team rosters. The other 20 players left will be dropped into the inaugural free agent pool with free agency beginning the first day of the season. The draft is randomly seeded with each team having equal odds. The draft will flip each round so if team A picks 1st in round one they pick last in round 2. Good luck to every team! July 1st 2018: Kazinsky states that the draft pool has about 67 players and that the league is searching for more July 18th 2018: Kazinsky says via Twitter that the lottery will be on September 18th August 21st 2018: Kazinsky announces the league will start on January 1st 2019 with a test day at Denver Cycling Center and that 3 other test days will occur throughout the month in: Minneapolis, Montreal, San Francisco, and Boston. The league regular season starts on February 5th 2019 in Kansas City the season will continue with a day every week until the end of the 20 day season (day in this case refers to the weekly event) September 18th 2018: Draft Lottery Results 1. VooDoo Biking 2. Target Cycling Club 3. Liberty Athletic 4. Denver Cycling 5. Tesla Biking 6. LA Spokes 7. Nike Cycling 8. Vice Biking Team 9. Vegas Cycling Club 10. Under Armour Cycling Team Fans packed into watch parties across the nation. VooDoo fans rejoiced when the news was heard they had acquired the first pick. The first trade in league history accured after the lottery event when Nike Cycling traded up to the 4 spot with Denver receiving future considerations. The league quickly made rules on future considerations. The league announced that future considerations can't be objects but can be money, players, draft picks, and spoken deals (I.E. Telling a team not to sign a certain player). The league can intervene in a trade unless the team receiving the future considerations confirm they are ok with the trade. The league also created a rule informally called "The Dibs Rule". The rule is that if a free agent hasn't been offered a contract in 1 month a team can call "dibs" on a player meaning any other team can give them deals after another team calls "dibs" but the team who called the player automatically gets the top bid. A team can only take the auto top bid 3 times until the "dibs" are removed. Draft tommorow

    In January 2018 a man named Thomas Kazinsky invented a sport called "Team Cycling". The races consist of 10 riders each on different teams racing around very small tracks in the shape of Ovals, Circles, and other rounded shapes. Teams score points by winning races. Races consist of 34-45 laps. There are 3-5 races per day and points carry over. Points are given in the amount of riders in a race. first place gets 10 points and so on til last who gets 1 point. Points carry over throughout a day and are added up to season points with the amount of points in a being divided in half and added to season points. Every team has a maximum roster of 6 riders with 3 being allowed activation per race. Teams can change riders during pit stops. When a rider crashes the race goes under caution with each team going to the pits while the rider is being checked on. If a rider is injured the team is allowed to activate a 4th rider. Each rider must keep in one set gear per race until the last lap where they can change gear to gain speed. Teams can be assessed penalties if a rider illegally changes their gear higher. Penalties involve a rider being in the pits for a set amount of time based on how long they were in an illegal gear. If a rider picks up 3 penalties in a race or 9 in a day they ejected and the team is NOT allowed to activate a 4th rider. During pit stops riders are allowed fix their bike in these ways: they can fix chains, blow up tires, adjust gears, ETC. An official must watch the fixes and if they suspect illegal fixes they can check the bike at the end of the race and if it is illegally edited penalties can be assessed. Teams can only use 1 bike per day unless a bike is damaged. If a bike is too damaged to continue teams can be docked for the rest of the race and will be given 5 compensations points. The league will field 10 teams for the first year TEAMS Target Cycling Club: Established in Minneapolis, uses red jerseys and bike, abbreviation TRC Denver Cycling: Established in Denver, uses black jerseys and bike, abbreviation DEN Vice Biking Team: established in Miami, uses pink jerseys and bike, abbreviation VBT Tesla Biking: established in Los Angeles, uses white jerseys and bike, abbreviation TES Liberty Athletic: established in New York, uses green jerseys and bike, abbreviation LIB LA Spokes: established in Los Angeles, uses gold jerseys and bike, abbreviation LA Nike Cycling: uses black jerseys and bike, abbreviation NKE Vegas Cycling Club: established in Las Vegas, uses black jerseys and bike, abbreviation VCC VooDoo Biking: established in New Orleans, uses purple jerseys and purple bike, abbreviation VD Under Armour Cycling Team: established in Baltimore, uses black jerseys and purple bike, abbreviation UA The league logo uses minimalistic style NOTE: even though this is similar to JMurr's international velo association I did not even take inspiration from it as I developed this idea a few months back

    Your least favorite team color combination.

    Oh crap y'all right

    Your least favorite team color combination.

    Gray and Yellow. I used to like the Cavs' city jerseys but now that I think about it the colors should be gray and wine red.

    That's why "He Hate Me" is the best football jersey ever
  15. The 1991 and 1987 Minnesota Twins The uniform is the same as the one they just scrapped a few years ago but the hat is what pushes it over. I love that hat (the logo also kinda looks like the dome too).
