What's the word "on the street" about the European League of Football?

 

Best I can tell, it will be a professional American football league, not unlike NFL Europe, but beyond that.... information is spotty and my attempts to contact them on various social media has been fruitless. 

 

What has everyone been hearing?

Looks like someone wanting to test if they can use the old WALF/NFL Europa logos and teams. There is a Frankfurt team that still calls themselves the Galaxy, but with a different logo. Colors are still the same though.

Most likely the German teams will be from the German Football League (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Football_League). I suspect they'll have limits on American players on each roster as well.

I've been trying to contact someone in the league for a week now. Both to find out more about it, and to possibly get a job with them, but no one has responded. They won't answer their e-mails, nor have I been able to get a hold of them via Twitter or Facebook. Most leagues at least would reply in some fashion by now, makes me question their legitimacy.

Well this is a good sign.  They will have rights to the old NFL Europe team designs.

Looks like they’ve already announced two new teams:

Frankfurt Galaxy

Hamburg Sea Devils

one article mentioned there’s still a team in Berlin. Could mean the return of the Berlin Thunder as well

Looks like the Sea Devils got an updated logo.

I liked the original Sea Devils, but not a fan of this one.  Not a fan of the Galaxy's new colors either.

If you click further on that link, it shows the Frankfurt and Hamburg teams are joining a league that already includes these teams: Wroclaw Panthers, Barcelona Gladiators, Stuttgart Scorpions, German Knights 1367 Niedersachsen and Ingolstadt Praetorians.

 

I presume this means this league won't be resurrecting the Barcelona Dragons, which was one of my favorite NFL Europe brands.

They have also brought back the Berlin Thunder and Cologne Centurions.

Do they actually have a deal the NFL or did the NFL let those trademarks lapse and they just picked them up.

Seeing as they changed the Hamburg Sea Devils logo, it's probably case of the NFL letting them lapse. I remember the Galaxy logo still being used after 2007 before a different logo was designed by the Frankfurt team in the GFL. It still makes no sense to change the colors to it. Purple and orange looked way better than it does now. Berlin and Cologne retain their names as well, but not the logos they had in NFL Europe.

Interesting. This must have just happened today. 

 

Their instagram feed shows what looks like a press conference with the old WLAF/NFL Europe helmet on a table across from another one with the new logo. (It almost looks Photoshopped onto that picture, which would be weird.)

Apologies, I'm terrible at embedding social media posts on here.

May be an image of text

I liked the original better.
