Well hello again. It is June 19th yes? 3 years ago on this date, I tasked myself with a modest challenge: Create a fantasy dodgeball league that could stand up next to the NBA, the NFL, the MLB, the NHL, or any combination of 3 letters that symbolized the penultimate level of sport. Boy did that challenge get out of hand. I created 128 concepts and maybe 150 or so if you figure in the ones I completely scraped (remember that cute red panda). I put more hours into this fantasy concept than any human should. It was a blast. The best part was the great people I met along the way. So why do it again? Maybe Im just trying return to my lost glory? Truth be told I look to make what was 'fun and extensive' 'better and refined'. While this is a fantasy, I know a 128 team league is implausible. Scheduling, travel, and starting finances would all be huge problems. So my goal this time through is this: To take what was good and make it better; to chose the best of the best and refine those pieces into a league that is believable. So this time through you will only have 30 teams. But you will get a developmental league of 15 teams (PDRL) and a Ladies league of 12 teams (LPDC). You will get more details on each team. You will get new templates, new rules, new marketing. While there will be a lot you have seen before I promise you this: you will never crave for new material. How can I promise this? Because it is all done! The entire project is done and ready to roll out. Over 250 images set in a folder on my desktop ready for your eyes. Over the next two days you will get a look at about 25 of them to help you understand all this project will entail and then on Tuesday the first of the 57 teams will be revealed. And Wednesday you'll get the next. And Thursday...you guessed it. 1 team every day for 57 days. I have so much Ive been dying to tell you all but I cant make it all in just this post. For now you get to dissect the new and improved league logos: The hexagon is important in the PDC and its subsidiaries. Each team will have 6 players on the court for each game. So it was used often. The main league logo follows the trend of North America sports leagues and using a RWB color scheme. The conference logos (named american and national) each borrow colors from this scheme. In a first amongst pro sports, the conference lines bridge across the gender gap and the LPDC will also use the American and National conference marks. The LPDC(Ladies' Professional Dodgeball Coalition) mark uses a unique color scheme to differeciate themselves from a fairly mirror logo as the mens league. The PDRL (Professional Dodgeball Rookie League) also uses familiar shaping but now shows the ball rising to symbolize the goal of the players to elevate themselves to the top tier. The three stars represent the leagues three divisions. Plenty more info coming tomorrow morning. Happy Fathers Day!
