If Gritty, (or anyone else) has the time, could we get a picture of all the teams' jerseys like we got last year, now that we have 6 new teams, (not to mention some teams should have new designs now right?)

Nice!  Now all we need is for the Whales to win 4-2 to nail the prediction, haha!

This has been a very entertaining playoffs so far.   While the upsets have been seldom, the quality of the series, (particularly anything involving the Alko Wizards) has been high.  Shame for the Electrics to lose Darren Cain to a broken tibia, as they were on their way to winning the series before that before losing steam after the injury.  Unfortunately, that definitely can happen when you lose your MVP, especially so gruesomely. 

This will definitely be an interesting series, as the Whales have not had things nearly so dramatic as the Wizards, who've had to come back from being down 3-2 and 3-1 in the playoffs so far.   I still feel the Whales are winning this, although that small scare with the #10 seed Kings (being down 2-1 before winning the last 3 games) gives me reason to wonder if the Wizards can pull the upset.   

 Sticking with Portarra to win the series 4-2.   Don't think the Wizards can make another dramatic comeback this time, but they've become an interesting team to watch the last couple of years, they could be a champion soon!  Can't wait to see!

Overall very happy with the name choices here, but there are some that I'm not the biggest fan of. Been really hoping for an Egyptian theme for Memphis so everything outside of Pharaohs is a no-go to me. Don't really like names that don't in 'S' either so that eliminates a couple but overall some great choices. Hoping for some really unique colors to come out of this round (pink!).

You know Pharaoh is just a fancy word for King right? Kings totally still fits. Maybe not as well as purely Pharaohs but has a lot nicer sound to it and references other things

As the submitter for Blue Sox, I think you should reconsider your position on only Pharaohs being selectable https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/grin.png

Loving the name choices this round!  Can't go wrong with just about all of these!

I auto drafted, but why did my two picks come in rounds two and three, instead of in round 1 (my pick and the Hammerheads pick)?

Edit: It appears that the Sabrecats and Steelheads 1st round picks were skipped as well

It was part of an elaborate plan by Jerome Bettis to sabotage the West. jk. There actually were some issues during the draft that Gritty will discuss further. Several teams were affected and I know he plans to rectify it somehow.

Of course!   We should have known Bettis would get revenge after suffering PTSD from the kidnapping incident and would have a few screws loose!  

But yeah, weird as the glitches were to happen, at least I managed to get a couple of auto picks at the end.  Somehow got Cole Beasley (surprised he was available, considering he was valuable enough for someone to trade Trevor Lawrence 1 on 1 for at one point, lol) who manages to be good enough for me to keep as my new 4th WR.  I'm lucky I didn't have to make too many roster adjustments, so I'm good altogether!

Aw Yeah!  THL is back!  Another interesting season to comment on!

Once again, the Whales and Electrics look like the class of the league and maybe we could get a rematch of last year's finals!

We get another possible opportunity to get an all Portarra battle (Whales and Pioneers), and maybe even an all Alko battle (Wizards and Barbarians and they both look really good this year).  Always love to see those city wars!

While obviously I'd have hoped the Heralds have made the playoffs (and won that Hockey on the Mount game against the Captains- looks like that was a great game!), it's nice to see them improve!

Really rough year for the tanking Falcons, having 86'd the '89 season, but they'll be interesting to watch going forward once they persumably draft Bobby Kozun.  It's always a risk when you tank.  If I recall right, the Whales tanked for Bronkowski (could be misremembering that), which worked out beautifully for them, but it doesn't always pan out.  

Going with Whales vs. Wizards for the finale, with the Whales getting their 3rd straight title 4 games to 2.

Just your daily reminder that your keepers are due tonight! Tomorrow I will manually add players to teams to reflect offseason trades and the rookie draft. 

In preparation for the new season I want to officially welcome our new owners. A shake up in the AltFL West to be sure. See you all on Saturday!

Welcome, noobs. Just remember, the Grizzlies run the west!

The Los Angeles Sabercats think they'll have something to say about that this year... https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/grin.png

Oh yeah, greetings new owners!

We've definitely come up with up with quite the unique set of team names for this league!   Gemini definitely feels like an alternate universe name if the Minnesota Twins hadn't gotten that specific name, (really dig it).   Oakland Squirrels is probably my favorite choice so far (beating out my selected teams name even), it just feels like a baseball team's name to me.  

Can't wait to see how the next set of names work out!  (Really excited about this round, I think I've got some good ones this time!)
