From the US to the World (Philadelphia Stars unveiled)

Recommended Posts

As the title indicates, this will be a what-if scenario of the USFL staying in the spring and hopefully sticking around long enough to expand to Europe.

 

Without further ado, here are the Arizona Wranglers:

Not really seeing anything new. 

 

Don't worry. Some of the 12 initial cities will have different brands.

For the next team, I will be repurposing an old concept from one of my previous series.

 

The Los Angeles Action.

I don't have a color scheme yet, but I'm looking for something that would fit the 80s.

FIRE vs. WATER

 

In the lead-up to the 1983 inaugural season, sports TV pioneer Eddie Einhorn buys the rights to the name Chicago Fire, formerly used by the short-lived WFL franchise. With the 1982 NFL season cut short by the strike, the Fire hope to attract more than a few disgruntled Bear fans.

Another of the real-life teams joining this series will be the Boston Breakers.

You can definitely expect disgruntled Bronco fans to turn to the Denver Gold for their football fix in the Spring of '83.

My take on some of the names:

New Jersey -> both Generals and Knights are pretty generic so they both could be used here, I would choose the one that gives you the better graphic identity in your mind

Philadelphia -> Bell Ringers is a good idea but the name it's too long for me, Spirit (singular) would be meaningful, represnting the american spirit

Washington  -> here I really like the name Sentinels, it evokes the martial theme yet can also stand for the idea of the wardens of democracy and freedom

Birmingham -> Forge is clearly the more fitting with the city's history, but also flames would do (although it is a little bit more generic)

I like the Action name and would love an 80's color scheme!

You should go with purple/yellow/red/blue like your RHL version of the Action and change Oakland to something else

 

What would you suggest for a better color scheme for the Condors?
