A few days ago I started a thread about an alternate universe fantasy hockey league. (http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/97103-uhl-an-alternate-fantasy-hockey-league/) Over the course of 2 days the league has established the 8 founding members: 1. Billings Pronghorns 2. Brooklyn Wolves 3. Cedar Rapid Reds 4. Halifax Highlanders 5. Hartford Whalers 6. North Carolina Zips 7. Pittsburgh Keystones 8. San Jose Stingrays Now we are looking to expand by 8 teams. See the previous thread for how the league will work. Each member will choose a region on a first come first serve basis. The regions will be as follows: 1. QUEBEC ATLANTIC - Quebec, Newfoundland, Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island 2. NORTH - Ontario, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Western Pennsylvania, Northern New York 3. NEW ENGLAND - Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Conecticut 4. ATLANTIC - Southern New York, New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, DC 5. SOUTH - Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, N. & S. Carolina, Florida 6. CENTRAL - Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma 7. MOUNTAIN - Alberta, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada 8. PACIFIC - British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, California League website: http://uhlfhl.webs.com/
First, I want to thank Crash for inspiring me to do this. Several years ago (8 to be exact) I had the idea to write a story chronicling a rookie catcher's first season in the majors. As the story evolved and I moved to BC, MLB became a fictional hockey league. I got more and more engrossed with the back story and history of the league rather than the original story. After creating several leagues and numerous frustrated writing sessions, I wound up shelving the idea (tho I occasionally dusted it off). Crash's CFA fantasy football league has made me think it's time to have another go. How this will work: Initially there will be 8 teams based in 8 different regions. Regions will be chosen on a first come first serve basis. Last to choose will be first to determine their franchises city. Once cities are determined, owners will submit team names. In choosing team names, please refrain from current NHL/AHL/ECHL/CHL/CJHL names. However, defunct names (Hartford Whalers, Brooklyn Americans) are more than welcome. The league will vote on whether to approve a team name or not. The process will then be repeated for team logos. When the teams are set, the league will expand by 8 teams and restart the process, with the goal to have 16 teams. After a members team is determined, the member will be responsible for coming up with the team history. (I will be doing the league history) The intent is to have fun with this so it is up to the member to decide how interesting (like the story of the 1919-20 Hamilton Tigers) or mundane (the origin of the Montreal Maroons' moniker) you want your team to be. Each member will be a voting member on league policies. The league will run on Yahoo! If interested, either comment here or PM me.
