    I'm planning on relocating NRW too, what are the rules with picking cities? Anything I need to be aware of? I thought I read somewhere the game struggles with certain relocations or something…

    In-game, there's really no relocation outside of actually having a vote to move to another in-game city. That happens (Fall River -> Indiana, Norman -> Buffalo) but it's rare. For this I'm just going into the nickname edit screen and editing the team names, then going into the city edit screen and editing the city labels. So really, you can pick anything - then I'll change "Norwich" to whatever you pick.

    I would like to rebrand NRW as the DeSoto Docs, with a logo something along these lines...

    And those three colors aren't actually too bad. Let me know what else I can do to help

    Thanks - I'll see what I can do with that.

    I've redone the logo so it's a little easier for me to work with. I think it might work well on a distinct background [helmet] color other from the white, black, or blue.

    Fantastic! I think you're right too, it would look better on a more distinctly colored background. The first color example you gave looks great to me.

    To be honest and easy, I just want any helmet with a stethoscope on it, so don't feel like you have to stick to this if it's too difficult to work with (I thought that logo might be some inspiration, but it looks good cleaned up!). Change anything and everything that would make things more workable for you. I don't want to appear picky, just appreciative. I'll be happy with whatever you design or decide

    I thought of trying some different things with the globe half of the logo, but other than not tapering the ends of it and modifying the "spin lines" somewhat I pretty much left it as is. I considered replacing it with a D but decided not to try it.

    At this point it's not difficult to work with at all - the whole circle part is pretty much self-contained and can easily be applied to a helmet. I'll work one up in the first color.

    edit - like so:



    (if that's no good just let me know)

    I think it looks good! The striping at the top really ties it all together.

    Just because I wanted to see what it would look like, I tried to swap in a "D". The perspective isn't perfect, but I think it looks good enough.

    Yeah, it occurred to me late last night that the cross thing didn't make a whole lot of sense and that a D could go there. I'll work that into my version. What is the font you used?

    TheFoosballWizard hasn't checked in since mid-Jan, so I think it's safe to say he's not ready to come back. I've sent a PM to Scortch offering him the team.

    And Scortch is out. Similarly Ape showed no activity all season, so we have two openings - Alabama and Kenosha. If anyone knows of any good owners in other leagues who might want to hop over here, spread the word. If not I can canvas FOFC again.

    Monday is definitely going to be off. I have to see what we want to do with the Franchise stage (or, what other leagues do). There will be no tag this time around so I am thinking we are going to skip it but I have to see how we auto ticket prices in that event. If we do skip it I may well push back coach hiring another day.

    Great news and welcome aboard Gerth!

    Does that mean we can lose the pic of Brady Quinn on our homepage now? :-)
