I want a Tunes shirt that says "fleeced." I feel like Narva fans would still be bragging about that, even in 2020. Good work as always!

ItDoesntMatter, Sorry for that!

Don't worry about it! Honestly, I'm glad you're so excited about this series. Your four posts here probably put you fourth or fifth on the all-time list in this thread 😂

Anyway, it's looking like my next update will end up being tomorrow morning rather than tonight, but oh boy, is it a big one. (In terms of magnitude, not so much in terms of excitement. I'm trying to build up to the big stuff here.) In fact, there's a good chance you'll get two updates tomorrow. Thanks everybody for sticking with me through such a long hiatus! I'm really glad to see so many people are still following this thread.

Sorry about that, I was upset about the owner method, I calmed down and I am better than ever right now!

Come on! I have more posts than n00bthtpwnz! Sorry if this offends you but these are facts.

And yes, you may have more posts that they do. But I've already started skimming past most of your posts because they aren't adding to things. Yes, provide input and your thoughts, interact with the creators. But let them tell the story. Provide cities for expansion, new players, team names, etc. when the creator asks for them. Providing good, positive feedback (and yes, constructive criticism is good feedback) is awesome, helpful, and will build the community.

Well, nobody’s responded at all, so this thread is canceled. Moving on!

This was a big, very vague request. I'm sure if you were more specific in some of your design ideas and color schemes, somebody around here would take a stab. It's a lot of work though, so more direction would have been helpful. Deadlines don't typically help in these types of requests. If you provide some more information about the fictional country and what you're going for, there'd be a lot more for someone to work with. 

Just a friendly observation. We have a great community here but they weren't given much of a chance.

It's nice to see the Neptunes finally have a good run of seasons, after how bad they'd been for so long!  Lots of low scoring games in that series, definitely a great series if you're into the tense atmosphere those games bring!  I've always imagined how mentally tough you have to be as a goalie when in a championship series, there's always pressure to not let goals in while your team is also struggling.  Gotta be hell on the mind, so Bukowski winning the series MVP after that series definitely seems right! Can't wait to see who the expansion teams are!

Bukowski is a great story. He's been steadily plugging away since the infamous Fleece draft trade in 1967, which created a vortex of unrealistically high expectations for him. His early struggles turned him into a popular target of ridicule. He's 12 seasons deep now. He sniffed the All-Star game as an alternate in 1971 but it wasn't until after the Neptunes' collectively bad 1974 season that he started to mature into a top-flight goalie. He's 29 now and hitting his prime late which could bode well for stability at the position while the team is focused on championship runs.

You're also perceptive on the scoring, which has been steadily increasing in volume but got real tight during the championship in particular, putting all the emphasis on the goalies. (Deservedly so, as Ferdy Haight is a living legend at this point, and didn't have a bad series by any means)

I wondered if that was the same guy!  I hadn't had a chance to go back to check!  That really is a great story!

The site went down for around an hour or so (could have been longer) last weekend. Do you know what's up with that?

Yeah, it was real spotty most of the weekend. Sorry about that. It was a server issue on Boardhost's end and not much we could do about it. Everything seems stable now though.

Dan O'Mac here. With the first round  of the Kellogg Cup Playoffs completed here in the MAHL, let's get into the thoughts of this guy.

North:
The Barbarians proved that my concerns about their matchup with Brainerd being a trap game were unfounded, with Steinbach clearly the better team on the ice.

I'm really looking forward to the Monarchs-Pointers matchup. I really like the Pointers, and they're my upset pick of the round in the north.

Chaos on the other side of the bracket, with the 3, 6 and 7 seeds all going down. Eveleth should get by the Trappers, and I gotta pick the Voyageurs to end the Pilots Cinderella run.

Twin Cities:
The Vulcans cruised, but are going to be matching up with a team that put up a bunch of goals quickly. The Twin Cities-Osseo match with see a lot of goals.

The Foxes versus Muskies will be a good one to watch, and it's going to be a close one.

I told you to keep your eyes on the White Bear Lake-Bloomington matchup, and they lived up to the billing. My upset pick for the round will be the Braves upending the Victorias.

Is this the year? The Cake Eaters will be going against the Retrievers, and I'm going to say the boys from Edina are going to be challenged, but still pull it out on their quest to raise the Cup.

South:
Eagan may have upset the Mustangs, but the Brewers aren't going to be caught off guard, and will be wearing those lucky yellow sweaters in a surprise home game in the playoffs.

I can't see an upset happening in this division, so I'm picking St. Peter, Marshall and Sioux Falls. But Austin will be close in their game. If you forced me to pick an upset, they're my pick.
