What are some candidates for the Knights' relocation?

Not entirely sure to be honest. Maybe Europe since the XFL will likely poach most available markets, and the NFL is dealing with the Chargers' controversial relocation to St Louis.

Hamburg or Cologne please!  Love those logos

1998 Quarterfinals

 

The few that showed up to the Meadowlands that warm June evening got to see the Knights hold firm against the surprising Musketeers. Jim Arellanes exploited the Musketeers' weak run defense by handing off to Ontiwaun Carter for 30 carries and 144 yards. The Knights' win allowed them to maintain their homefield advantage heading in to next week's confrontation with the Orlando Thunder.

Knights 20 - Musketeers 10

 

Anthony Calvillo torched the Glory's secondary for 209 yards through the air on the way to the Thunder's 31-17 blowout over the Glory at the Horseshoe.

Thunder 31 - Glory 17

 

After trailing by 21 at the half, QB Kerry Joseph and wideout Marco Martos calmly led the Aztecs to one of the World League's greatest postseason comebacks. With the game tied at 38 in double overtime, Marco Rueda kicked the game winner to extend the Aztecs' season.

Aztecs 41 - Stallions 38

 

The Frankfurt Galaxy and Amsterdam Admirals met in the Amsterdam ArenA in a game hyped by FX's announcers to be the battle between two promising quarterbacks. Dick Curl, who took over for Ernie Stautner in Frankfurt, thought he had enough talent to get the Galaxy over the hump. Pat Barnes, Ingo Seibert and Mario Bailey played well for the Galaxy, but their performance was eclipsed by the equally impressive play of Kurt Warner who completed at least 66% of his passes in Amsterdam's 30 to 27 win.

Admirals 30 - Galaxy 27

1998 Semi-Finals

 

Orlando's defense did not give up a single first down or allow the Knights to cross the 50 yard line at any point in the Thunder's 17-0 shut out of the Knights at the Meadowlands. Manfred Burgsmuller kicked a field goal early on for the Thunder's first points of the game. After that, QB Anthony Calvillo would connect with WR Stevie Thomas on both of the Thunder's touchdowns. Even though the Knights weren't able to do anything right in this game, the fans stayed a few minutes after the game, bidding farewell to the Knights for what could be the final time.

Thunder 17 - Knights 0

 

While Marco Martos was able to reel in a TD catch to put the Aztecs on the board early on, they would be crushed by a much too powerful Admiral team. Silvio Diliberto pulled the Admirals to within 4 on a 22 yard chip shot late in the first. Then, Kelly Sims scooped up a Kerry Joseph fumble for a 72 yard TD to put Amsterdam ahead by 3. Kurt Warner added another TD with a long bomb to Calvin Schexnayder before halftime, putting Amsterdam up by 10. Late in the third, Ron Carpenter intercepted Kerry Joseph for his fourth pick six of the season, adding the final insult with his trademark A-Train celebration. The Admirals defense held the Aztecs' offense to its lowest number of yards all year in a 24 to 7 win for Amsterdam.

Admirals 24 - Aztecs 7

And so, it'll be Amsterdam and Orlando meeting in World Bowl 98 at the Waldstadion in Frankfurt.

As part of the settlement between the National Football League and the City of San Diego, the Chargers' name, colors and history will remain behind in San Diego while Dean Spanos will be given a pseudo-expansion franchise in St Louis with a new name.

Sorry about the grain, but it is purposely made to look 90's. LOL.

Great idea leaving the Chargers where they belong.

With the arch in the Gunners logo, I would try and make the Cannon leg look like it was part of the arch. Move the arch across a little.

 

Will we see the Skyhawks change to the Research Triangle Skyhawls?

 

 

Also I suggest an extra week of finals with all the new clubs coming in.

Rather than be another red and black team, the Calgary Stampeders use maroon and bronze to complement their classic scarlet...

Great idea taking out black for bronze.  Such an underused color add the maroon. And the white face mask adds class to it all. Excellence!!!

Good Idea, But I Hope when we get 1999 or 2002, San Diego will get the Chargers back along with a 32nd NFL Expansion Franchise which might go to Nashville or Somewhere Else.

I dunno where the 32nd franchise will end up, but San Diego will be back in the AFC West in the next realignment.

World Bowl 98

June 20, 1998

Waldstadion

Frankfurt am Main

TV: CBS

Announcers: Nick Halling* & Phil Simms

Trophy Presentation: Mike Carlson*

*on loan from Sky Sports

Debut of the updated, synthesized version of the 1992 NFL on CBS theme. After Fox's AFC coverage (1994-97) received extremely negative reviews for its dancing robots and glowing footballs, NBC makes its NFL return and will cover the NFC and CBS will do the AFC starting with the upcoming 1998 NFL campaign.

 

First Quarter

The first quarter was mostly a defensive struggle. Manfred Burgsmuller would kick a 26 yard FG to put Orlando on the board early.

 

Second Quarter

The Amsterdam Admirals took the lead at the halfway point of the 2nd quarter with a touchdown pass from Kurt Warner to Joe Douglass. A field goal by Silvio Diliberto put the Admirals further ahead 10-3. Seconds before halftime, Burgsmuller added another field goal to pull the Thunder to within 4.

 

Third Quarter

Early in the third, Anthony Calvillo handed off to Vaughn Dunbar for a 21 yard draw play up the middle to put the Thunder ahead by 2. The rest of the quarter proved less than memorable.

 

Fourth Quarter

Manfred Burgsmuller kicked his third field goal of the night to put the Thunder ahead by 5. With just under five minutes to go, Kurt Warner marched the Admirals down the field, setting up a play action pass to Calvin Schexnayder to put Amsterdam up 17-16. The Thunder still had time for one last drive. Anthony Calvillo connected with Stevie Thomas, in relief of an injured Isaiah Mustafa, on three consecutive passes to put Orlando into field goal range. A 36 yard chip shot from Burgsmuller was all that was needed to win the game and the championship for the Thunder.

 

Final Score

Thunder 19 - Admirals 17

It’s really creative. I wasn’t alive when the world league was around and when I found the logos and uniforms on the site I immediately fell in love. Your rendering of it is really cool and unique. Great job so far!

The only thing I don’t like about that set is the white background between the stokes of the cannon. Just doesn’t look right imo.
