  1. As in this period so many people seems to be taken into the Star Wars madness I've decided to change the subject of my fantasy league from Star Wars to The Lord of the Rings/ The Hobbit world. My Galactic Football League will have to wait a bit more. Why did I choose hockey for my Middle-earth fantasy league? I thought that hockey was the most fitting sport for J.R.R. Tolkien fictional continent as most of his stories take place in dark and cold times full of battles and wars. To me hockey is one of those sports which represents best an ancient battle fight. For these reasons I'm glad to present you the Middle-earth Hockey League (MEHL in short)! Little geographical lesson My hockey league teams will all be based on the geography you can see on maps in Tolkien's most famous books, LOTR and The Hobbit, which are setted in the Third Age of Arda (just because Middle-earth has not been the same shape ever). The whole world which is called Ea or Arda has many different continents but all my teams will be in the Middle-earth continent (also known as Endor, well, not that Endor). League Teams Rohan Riders Helm's Deep Defenders Minas Tirith Monarchs Minas Morgul Nazguls Osgiliath Legion Bree Brewers Rivendell Lords Mirkwood Hunters Moria Forgers Isengard Wild Erebor Mountain Kings Shire Halflings Misty Mountains Avalanche Mordor Black Army Anduin Argonath Ithilien Bowmen Dale Blazers Iron Hills Ironfeet League Map (the image is quite big, I suggest to have a look on full size mode) The league will not have conferences in it and every team will be playing two season games against each other team, one home and one away. There will not be playoffs, the team with the most victories gets the league trophy. In case of an even number of victories of two or more teams the number of draws or losses will be analysed. Hope you enjoy this thread!
  2. Let's start with a bit of mixing of real and alt history: during the mid 20th Century, Spain and Portugal were under the command of authoritarian regimes (Portugal since 1926 and Spain since 1939). Given these regimes were not only authoritarian but also Fascist-esque, people were ruled by very strict rules about the divertissement and leisure, including football/soccer. The Spanish La Liga, which was cancelled in 1935/36 due to the Civil War, was never taken up again, and in Portugal the Primeira Liga (Experimental) was created in 1934/35, which would be hold until the 1937/38 season, after which the government decided to cancel the competition. Due to these actions, football/soccer stayed at amateur level for many years. Things changed in the mid 70's: in 1974 the Revolução dos Cravos (Carnation Revolution) took place in Portugal, ending with the Estado Novo (New State), approving a democratic constitution in 1976. And in Spain Franco died in 1975, giving way to a democratic state. After both countries overcame the dictatorships, they decided to join forces and created a joint league, in order to help the clubs grow and become strong enough to be able to compete in European competitions. That's how the Liga Ibérica de Fútbol/Futebol (L.I.F.) was born. The Spanish and Portuguese agreed to create a league composed of 22 teams (12 from Spain and 10 from Portugal) and each team would play 42 matches per season. The LIF is still hold nowadays, and among its clubs there are some of the best teams and players in the World. This is the league current logo: And this is the list of the current clubs and the cities in where they play: Spain: Madrid: Sporting de Madrid and Racing Club de Madrid Barcelona: Unió Esportiva Catalana and Dynamo Barcelona Valencia: Club Deportivo Valencia Sevilla: Híspalis Club de Fútbol and Atlético Guadalquivir Zaragoza: Gimnástica Zaragozana Murcia: R̶e̶a̶l̶ ̶M̶u̶r̶c̶i̶a̶ ̶C̶l̶u̶b̶ ̶d̶e̶ ̶F̶ú̶t̶b̶o̶l̶ Recreativo de Murcia Mallorca: Athletic Balear Bilbao: Sociedad Deportiva Bilbao Vigo: Racing de Vigo Portugal: Lisboa: Atlético Clube de Lisboa and União Lisboeta Porto: Sociedade Desportiva Portuense and Associação Académica de Porto Braga: Futebol Clube Vitória de Braga and Grupo Desportivo de Braga Funchal: Madeira Clube de Futebol Coimbra: Sporting de Coimbra Setúbal: Clube de Futebol Sadino Faro: Clube Desportivo Formosa You can find the club's locations in the followig map: In the posts I'll be alternating between Spanish and Portuguese clubs, providing a bit of background for each one.
  3. Hi everyone. This is a project I started few days ago, and I've decided to upload it here. I've been living in Spain for 13 years, but in fact I was born in Venezuela, where baseball is the most popular sport. My relatives are baseball fans, and I like it too. Unfortunately, it's not very popular here in Spain (there's a league, but it's not really known nor big), so I decided to create a fantasy baseball league based in Spain. I organized it in 4 divisions: Northern, Central, Mediterranean and Southern. You can see the divisions and the club locations in the following map: These are the temas from each division: · División Norte (Northern Division): o Marineros de A Coruña (A Coruña Mariners) o Sidreros de Oviedo (Oviedo Cider Makers) o Montañeses de Santander (Santander Highlanders) o Lobos de Bilbao (Bilbao Wolves) o Leones de Zaragoza (Zaragoza Lions) o Toros de Pamplona (Pamplona Bulls) · División Central (Central Division): o Gatos de Madrid (Madrid Cats) o Rebeldes de Móstoles (Móstoles Rebels) o Emperadores de Toledo (Toledo Emperors) o Romanos de Mérida (Mérida Romans) o Pucelanos de Valladolid (Valladolid Pucelle) o Morcilleros de Burgos (Burgos Blood Sausage Makers) · División Mediterránea (Mediterranean Division) o Barcelona Dracs (Barcelona Dragons) o Murciélagos de Valencia (Valencia Bats) o Castellers de Tarragona (Tarragona Castle Makers) o Turistas de Mallorca (Mallorca Tourists) o Palmeros de Elche (Elche Palm Makers) o Isleños de Menorca (Menorca Islanders) · División Sur (Southern Division): o Linces de Sevilla (Sevilla Lynxes) o Mozárabes de Córdoba (Córdoba Mozarabs) o Nazaríes de Granada (Granada Nasrids) o Boquerones de Málaga (Málaga Anchovies) o Corazones de Murcia (Murcia Hearts) o Chachos de Gran Canaria (Gran Canaria Lads) Tell me what you think about my fantasy league idea and if you would be interested on seeing the uniforms.
  4. Earth Hockey League

    I decided to start up a fantasy league known as the Earth Hockey League. It starts off with four teams: Washington Speedsters (US) Victoria Foxes (CAD) Tokyo Roses (JPN) Mexico Reds (MEX) The rosters are filled with NHLers. The rosters will be released soon. Here's where they'll play: Washington: Verizon Center (where the Capitals play) Victoria: Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre (where the Royals play) Tokyo: The Big Hat (where the ice hockey events in the 1998 Olympics were held) Mexico: Monterrey Arena
  5. Last summer I started a thread about the South Fulton Wiffleball League, a summer wiffleball league. Looking back on it, I was actually pretty disappointed with most of my concepts so I have decided to give the give the league a makeover, which includes expansion to 14 teams total, a new league logo, an identity overhaul for most of the teams, and a cleaner presentation. My concept for this league is a summer weekend league, beginning on Memorial Day weekend and ending on Labor Day with an All-Star game on the 4th of July, but I'm still working out the kinks of the week to week schedule. The game would be played with baseball-style wiffleball rules, with some modifications, however, including only seven players per team, among some other necessary changes. Now that I have the boring stuff out of the way, let me get to the concepts themselves. First is the new league logo, which is a classic red, white and blue pentagon with a large wiffleball front and center. It's simple, but by my estimate, also effective. Next, I'd like to present the first team in the new SFWL South Conference, The Astoria Pirates. The Pirates draw their name and colors from Astoria High School, whose athletics team wore the pirates logo and colors proudly for many years. Well thanks for taking the time to have a look and any thoughts or C&C are appreciated. I'd love to hear what everyone has to say.
  6. Acalian Sports Thread

    Hey guys- After a hiatus due to focusing on the end of school and creating plans for the summer, I am back. The inspiration for this thread is 1clkgtramg's Tamaria thread. After looking at it I decided to showcase my country a few years in the making, Acalia. The name was just made up on the fly a few years ago, and it has really been fun to make up histories and leagues for this fictional country. Heck, I haven't even bothered to do a map, and I gave the country a population of 10 billion just so I could make a lot of leagues. On another note, to start this thread off, I want to show off the flag, national crest, and the sports board logo. FLAG The flag is designed after a typical European flag and displays the national colors. Purple represents loyalty and the royal family, white represents purity and the judicial branch, and gold represents the wealth and bright future of the country and the senatorial branch. A simplified crest of a black triangle is displayed in the center, which represents the 3 branches of the government working together and the 3 original countries that agreed to form Acalia, which were Acadia (not Acalia), Barbaria, and Lutheria. Black represents the unbreakable bond between the government and Acalia's citizens. CREST/COAT OF ARMS The coat of arms's colors and triangle mean the same thing as in the flag, but in a different setting, and without white, so the meaning of white is also incorporated into the black. The first letters of the 3 original countries that made up Acalia appear in the middle, with the full name of Acalia on top (Semi-Monarchy of Acalia) and the country's motto (forever steadfast) on bottom in Latin (Firmus in Aeternum). SPORTS BOARD LOGO The board is the governing board of sports in Acalia. The logo appears in the national sports colors of purple, gold, and white, and has the triangle and the initials of the board in the center of the roundel. A roundel was chosen because of its simplicity and its distinct renown as one of the most common shapes in sports. Alright. I hope you get pumped for this series, and hopefully the national soccer team will be posted later today. Until then, C&C is welcome, even on the crest and sports board logo.
