Boston wins the MLL championship.

 

SN: Watching the Atlas vs Waterdogs PLL game right now. Those light purple (lavender?) Waterdogs uniforms don't look good in action on TV.

I could tell the difference between them and Atlas, but I thought that there wasn't a good enough clash between the two teams.

Actually think PLL adjusted the shade of blue Atlas wears at some point last year. There came a point when their blue began to visually pop more than it did earlier in the season. With that said, such a small league should go out it's way to make sure there is significant clash between the teams' uniforms. The Waterdogs should have probably gone with white secondary uniforms instead of lavender/lilac/faded light purple.

 

My issue wasn't with clash though. They're uniforms just didn't look good in live action to me.

 

On topic though: I thought Atlas vs Waterdogs was the best PLL game of the weekend.

On topic, that was a great game. I think the Waterdogs have a pretty good squad for an expansion team.

I'm not that into the pro game like I am with college, but I do find it hilarious watching Tom Schreiber in orange and navy

Wonder how much longer Paul Rabil intends to play? I think the PLL may truly start to grow once he decides to step away from playing and puts all his energy into the business side of things.

It is also kinda why I can't root for Atlas. I love Trevor Baptiste (I'm a Philadelphia Wings fan) but I guess I'm so petty that I don't like that the founder also being able to play in that league. Rabil shouldn't be forbidden to play and I know there isn't any preferential treatment towards him or his club but I still can't get past that.

If it makes you feel any better, Atlas was in the bottom half of the league last season. And they look like a middle of the pack kind of team so far this season.

Final day of group play in the PLL Championship Series is tomorrow. Only one game scheduled. A matchup of the only undefeated teams, Whipsnakes vs Archers. Winner gets the number 1 seed in the knockout rounds, and a BYE to the semifinals. Here's the standings as the moment.

 

SN: This league is clearly not rigged for Paul Rabil's team to be succesful. Atlas has been underachieving hard in the 2 years of the PLL's existence.

Chaos pulled of an upset. Higher seeds won the other quarterfinal games.

I have to believe that Whipsnakes will win again. That team is just too good.

I was happy to see Chrome have a resurgence this year. It's a shame they couldn't keep the "Chromeback" going. But as @JayMac said, I find it hard to believe Whipsnakes won't take the title. They are too solid on all sides of the ball and teams just struggle to keep up.

 

I have to say, though, this has been an exciting tournament! I can't wait for them to get back to a full season at some point. Because some of their teams have great personalities that make for good television.

Thank you all for the informative and interesting thread. It's awesome to see people with different opinions maturely discuss something. I happened upon PPL coverage while watching NHL playoffs on NBCSN. Today I've been reading and learning about the sport. For those having trouble because the PPL teams aren't assigned to a city, I agree it's strange. Try just picking one. Be it because a player(s) you like are on the team, or you like the name or logo or colors, or use a dartboard. If fans can't find a team that they care wins or not, I don't think this format will last. Looking forward to watching the PLL championship tomorrow, and next season, so I can compare the games of both leagues.
