Football Association of America

Recommended Posts

The FAA was founded on December 16th, 1924 after a championship game between the Cleveland Bulldogs and the New York Knights. While both teams had found a great deal of success in a number of smaller leagues and the independent circuit, the two owners of these two successful franchises found it more lucrative to form a new, more stable league together. This decision would have an impact on American sports forever.

(Authors Note) I was heavily inspired by Veras, History of a Fictional Football League.

The New York Knights

Founded 1919 by a World War One veteran John Lyons, this team would find a great deal of success in its early years dominating the Atlantic football scene as winning several Championship Cups (The championship game would later be named the Lyons' Cup). This success would be continued until the 1970s where the Knights would have many losing seasons until 1984, where they drafted hall of famer Quarterback, Will Humphries. Under Humphries they won two more Lyons' Cups in 1989 and 1990. The Knights have been average for several years, but look to regain their former success under Coach Brian Bielski.
Number of Lyons' Cups: 6
Previous Years Record: 9-7

Nice work so far on the league logo. It definitely fits the era that the league was created in.

Thanks, I lack the ability to make more sophisticated logos so it will have to do for now. My timeline takes place in the modern era. I plan on writing the leagues history, as well as the each teams.

Buffalo Bisons

The Bisons were founded in 1970 and were first FAA football team in Buffalo, there had been an earlier team in the 1950s called the Bisons but they eventually folded after several years. The Bisons have been a successful team throughout their history but they have yet to win a single Lyon's Cup. They look to change this soon as many people view the Bisons the favorites as this season Lyon's Cup winner. With one of the best defenses in the Assoscation and a high powered passing attack they just might take home the cup.

Number of Lyons' Cups: 0

Previous Years Record: 10-6

The New Jersey Reds

The New Jersey Reds have been forever in the shadow of their cross state rival, the Knights. Founded in 1984 with the merger with the USFA the Reds have built a rabid fan base in their home state of New Jersey. They have yet to reach and maintain a high level of success in the association, they are however hopeful of their future. This is from the drafting of Russell Shepard, a defensive end who just a dominant rookie season. The Reds also drafted a quarterback named Johnny Willas with their 3rd pick in the draft this year, hoping he might be the answer to their offensive woes last season.

Number of Lyons' Cups: 0

Previous Years Record: 4-12
