    If you wanted to try FOBL, we're staying on v15 until v17 comes out. We upgrade every other version at best.

    I don't know though, already 3 leagues with football (plus single player), and if I get baseball, I'll probably want 1 or 2.............we'll see

    Honestly, FOBL is much more of a Financial/Economic sim than a baseball sim.

    corbes will be taking over The Village.

    Swaygodeus has expressed interest in State College.


    Ben is going to be giggling when I have to juggle all these team moves.

    HAHA another Aussie, nice

    Agree, baseball is a little too much like a boring version of cricket to me!

    Normie32r will be taking over Coney Island.

    I believe that leaves Hell Creek as the lone ownerless team.

    MaxZubnik will be taking over in Hell Creek.

    For now, I think this gets us to capacity - that's allowing TRO a little more time to get things in order with Alabama, and FoosballWiz the opportunity to step back in with Parts Unknown (both logged in in Jan).

    So, time to settle down until the next offseason, see if those guys come back, and see if everyone sticks (I haven't actually heard anything from zurgan since he signed up, so you never know - we've had new owners vanish before).

    Guys I'm all signed in! Pleasure to be a part of this league and will enjoy the challenge of turning this team around...I'm very new to FOF so it's going to be a lot of trial and error but I'm excited nonetheless..

    Go Rhinos!

    Just a reminder to new owners that you do have the option of rebranding (renaming/relocating) your team for next season if you want to. I have been working on some already and would like to have most changes ready to go for the season rollover (which will come faster than we think).

    Ooh - I like that. I can definitely work with that theme.

    ETA: this isn't a bad logoization/abstraction of it: http://pldh.net/media/gallery/the493/zapdos.jpg . Increase the difference between the background yellow and the shadow yellow and you might have something.

    Also, an entire PokeLeague would be kinda neat. Nerdy (as if fake football wasn't already), but neat.

    I'm confused...did you need me to do something? lol... Your mock up looks good if that's what this link is...I always picture the helmet black but I like what you have there with the gold...

    No, I don't need you to do anything - I was just searching for images and came across that one and thought it fit the style of today's Illustrator-crafted logos. If you're thinking black shell though, I agree that the version you linked would fit better. I'll work something up.

    Would like to rebrand Hell Creek to the Midlothian Maulers with a black helmet with a Yellow M, what do I need to do?

    Yellow M? Yeah, that won't be hard. I'm assuming something strong and blocky. Basically from there I'd just want to know if you want stripes on the helmet or not and in what order (single yellow, yellow-black-yellow, etc.). Oh, and if you prefer the facemask to be yellow or black.

    I'll put together both options, let you pick.
