NXBL - National Xtrem Baseball League

Recommended Posts

http://www.ssa.cc/nxb.htm

It's billing itself as baseball evolved and it's way too crazy to ever take hold. Their goals are way to lofty.

2007: Exhibition games to gain interest

2008: Nationwide league with up to 30 cities

2009: International league

They already have 5 scheduled exhibition games in the Orlando area (4 at Tinker and 1 in Sanford at Memorial Stadium).

Is this league sponsored by Microsoft Powerpoint?

Or do they just have no logo creativity at all?

and dammit why is Cincinnati in there?

I'm thinking this is gonna be a trainwreck.

Nvm the fact that they have word art for logos.

This will be the XFL of baseball. People might tune it to check it out only to findout how bad it is.

:blink: wtf, this is very confusing, are you to tell me they both play at the same time??? Yeah, i'd take my chances with Arena Baseball

That's actually an intriguing concept you have there. It seems to mix in some cricket rules also (number of pitches determine innings).

This thing doesn't live to see a pitch.

Seems like one of those weird games that 7 year olds come up with, while making up the rules as the game goes on.

Ladies and Gentlemen....

The NIFL officially no longer has the worst set of logos in minor league sports.

How bad of a name is the Atlanta Confederates? Some political groups don't like the name Rebels. I wonder what they will come up with for team logos.

I like the TM mark next to the logos. Like anyone would steal that crap.

I also love the "Renigades." Beautiful. And Confederates? Um...

I thought Charlotte Krunk was a bad name (and it most certainly is), but some names that immediately jump out as horrible...

Atlanta Confederates....'nuff said about that one.

Tampa Bay Black Sox....like the sport of baseball would want that memory back....

Cincinnati Blitz....shouldn't that be an Arena Football League team name?

Boston Renigades....with the misspelling and all....

Nashville Sparrows....who would be intimidated by the "Sparrows"?

New York MinuteMen....wasn't minutemen more of a Boston thing?

so yeah....there are really not very many good things in this baseball league at all....definitely worse than the current ABA and XFL. At least the XFL names made some sense....
