Do you have your own Madden League?

I have a 32 team league consisting of Kansas teams. For me it was hard finding 32 Kansas cities that could be realistic to have a football team. I customized all the teams using logos I've have "Collected". It's pretty cool, the first year I took control of the Senaca Bobcats and went undefeated. Does anyone else have a similar league. I know of CFL version, but i didn't know if anyone else did one for they're state or something.

i've done that with twenty teams that I made up over ten years ago, although I don't like the madden uniform design and it is horribly frustrating when you have to settle for something that only looks kind of like what you designed.

I have an 8-team rival league called the United Football League (though I may call it a "gridiron" league). I decided to go the old AFL route and have my teams in non-NFL cities, play games from September to January and adjust the weather accordingly.

The teams are in Birmingham, Columbus, Connecticut (New Haven), LA, Milwaukee, New York (cuz the Giants & Jets play in Jersey), Norfolk and San Jose. I even based the stadiums on actual venues, so you actually see "Ohio State" in the end zones at Columbus or the UAB Dragon at the middle of Birmingham's stadium (Leigon Field).

But what's even more furstrating than the unis is when you try to recreate real stadiums. Having an 80,000 seat venue isn't so bad when you're making Ohio Stadium or Leigon Field, but that's twice as big as Miller Park and almost three times as big as Spartan Stadium or Price Stadium (Norfolk State).

Your Kansas state league idea sounds cool though. If you're having trouble finding 32 cities that could have football teams, but 2 in KC. For a league on that small of a scale, it's concievable that a city the size of KC could support 2 teams.

I may just try the same thing with Wisconsin.

Believe it or not, St. Louis is not one of Kansas's largest cities. Matter of fact, it's not even in Kansas.

:P

G** D*****!!! Me of all people should know better than that.

I was thinking of a stupid post I saw awhile back at another board about how "the entire state of Kansas will rejoice when the Rams beat the Packers" and had a braincramp.

I blame Kansas City... if they knew how to stay in one state, this would never have happened.

Well Of course I have posted about my CFL league here & elswhere and have heard of others doing thta since I'v been on line about it...

I also have a CFL with 16 Canadian teams and 16 US teams including the actual US based teams from the 90's--then I creted some more--I plan to post those after the 32 team CFL...

On 2002 since you can have leagues of 6, 12, 18, 24, or 31 teams I also had a

-6 leteam league of English Football teams featuring the 4 mentioned in Monty Python's "Comunist Quiz Show" + 2 others

-12 team CFL

-18 team provincial league--similar to the all Kansas league, but I used the towns, not cities, except for a few very small ones

-24 CFL Canada/US league

Of course the Canada/US league became the 32 team one I mentioned, as the 12 team CFL became a 31 then 32 team one...

I also did a team based on the TV show, "The Prisoner" but never had a league for it...

Glad to see others like to do this too---I think I like making up the teams better than playing the games--but I enjoy that as well, I find it a great way to relax at the end of the day...

Maybe I'll post a list of all the team names I've created--just a list though--I no longer have some of the logos I used...

Seeing as how i only have MAdden on a platform, can you import logos in the PC version? If so, man do i have a boring couple nights coming, cause as said before, i like making teams and uniforms better than playing the game. I also made up leagues, based somewhat on the old WLAF, XFL, arena and any bastardizations that i materialized in my head along the way. I remember being in the 5th grade like 20 years ago and making football fields out of notebook paper for the six teams i had then. Then it moved to 12 and the last time i looked through my notebook i kept them in it was up to 36 and fixing to contract as i remember. They even had championship games for 60 years or so. Man i must have been bored. Oh well.

Yea, you can import logos, helmets, end zone art and midfield art in the PC version. And Madden 04 is only $20 at Best Buy right now.

Hiawatha Thunder has a cool ring to it. But I think I would've preferred another name for Dodge City like Marshalls, Desparados or Ghosts.

But howcome KC doesn't have a team?

i don't really know why i didn't do a team for KC. I just wanted the other "Smaller" towns to be in it i guess.
