Return of the Anaheim Bullfrogs with a new logo


MRKA

Recommended Posts

As some of you might remember, the Anaheim Bullfrogs were a team in Roller Hockey International (RHI) during the 90's and were by far the leagues flagship team, winning a couple of championships and leading in attendance. Well that club, at least in name is looking to make a comeback in Major League Roller Hockey (MLRH), a professional roller hockey league that competed briefly with RHI during the 90s and since then has been pretty much been an amateur league. However according to the league website www.mlrh.com, the league has recently acquired the rights to the Anaheim Bullfrogs name and logo along with the name and logo of another former RHI team the Los Angeles Blades. It appears that MLRH has gone ahead and updated the logo and I thought I would share the new logo here

I know Muskegon's owner, Josh Mervis... I'll let you know what he says after I tell him.

I would be interested in knowing what he thinks. I am a roller hockey player and have followed the sport for a while now and was interested to see where this league would go. I added the the league MLRH to my facebook in order to follow its developments. After it was pointed out on here that the logo was stolen I made a comment about it on the league page which was promptly deleted. In a private message from the league I was told "to be careful when making such a public statement" and that "no image or logo was inappropriately used"I was then promptly de-friended lol.

Me and my brother were New Jersey Rockin' Rollers season ticket holders. I miss RHI. (Yea, i'm the one guy that misses it)

Add me as the second guy, I was a Denver DareDevils season ticket holder back in 96 (their only season), I was 13 at the time.

I ran the website for the Oklahoma Coyotes their two seasons (1995-96). The thought was to put together an OKC Blazers/Central Hockey League all-star team and place it in the Myriad, since those same players were averaging 10,000 fans a night in OKC. Unfortunately, the Murrah Bombing (for which today is the 16th anniversary, FYI) took place about six weeks after the franchise was announced. The entire OKC metro suffered from clinical depression for 18-24 months after that, and the team never drew more than about 4,000 a night (and usually around 2,800-3,200), though a pair of games in Tulsa the second season drew okay. I have copies of the original scoresheets from both seasons. I'm not sure if the originals are out there anywhere. If anyone has them it would be Chris Due, the SID at Lubbock Christian.

Thanks for sharing that mfoster. I actually went to school in Tulsa and become a fan of the Tulsa Oilers and the Central Hockey League while out there. I am impressed that that the Oklahoma Coyotes were even able to draw 4,000 a game back then, seeing that both the Tulsa Oilers and the new AHL team in OKC average about 4,000 a game these days.

Add me as another RHI fan... Naturally, I was a huge Portland Rage fan. Still have a bunch of Rage memorabilia including a game puck, authentic '94 road jersey, programs, video of the championship game against Buffalo, ticket stub from the championship game, lots of newspaper clippings. Good times!
