Names » American Gridiron Association: City Selection Help » 9/10/2020 1:43 pm

Hey y'all,

I can't believe it's happened but I'm actually bored with doing my same fictional leagues the same way for the past twelve or so years. Every time I come up with something lately I just can't stick to it. They're easy ways for me to unwind and let off steam while simulating fictional seasons at the same time. 

I believe it's because I've gotten a little predictable for myself. I pick the same cities over and over, a few with lackluster identities (which I'm usually good at). I do value realism, it's one of the big reasons I like the AltHL and AltFL so I try to stick to it as much as possible. 

So this time I'm asking for help in selecting my eight (8) starting cities, I can come up with identities from there, in the AGA, a spring football league like the XFL and AAF. I'm here for the regulars (i.e. Los Angeles, New York, Chicago) and the unusuals (i.e. Omaha, Austin, Raleigh) or whatever suggestions you guys may have. These eight teams will be split into American (West) and Gridiron (East) divisions.

Thank you for your help in advance!

The Lions... well at least the beginning of this Legacy project will be fun. Seriously not looking forward to 2008.

I'll take 7th. Was really just hoping for top 10 honestly.

CHI-CA-GO! CHI-CA-GO! 

That's my team! Knew we wouldn't be down-and-out for too long. One Adams Cup down, many more to go! I'll definitely have to make a sig sometime soon. 

As far as "Rivals", Chicago recognizes most regional teams as rivals. We also accept Portland's crazy rivalry. A fan poll ran by the Ghosts' office reveals a stunning disdain for another in-division team: the Charlotte Racers.

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- The Utah Raptors' owner, WithaCapitalG, announced plans to open the season in a new stadium for the 2020 season with a new facility sponsor.

The Raptors will move on from sharing Rice-Eccles Stadium with the University of Utah and open a dual-purpose stadium to be shared with the MLS team Real Salt Lake. This 61,550 seat stadium will include an open-air top making for frigid Salt Lake games in November and December. 

"We've worked at this for quite some time," WithaCapitalG said, "It's exciting to usher in a new era like this with a brand new coach in Saban. We'd of course like to thank the Utah Utes for their hospitality over these past few years."

The new stadium also brings in a new, SLC-based sponsor. BRCC Stadium is headlined by Black Rifle Coffee Company. Noted for their work with US veterans. Fans asking for renderings will have to wait until an artist rendition can be completed.

"We have no renderings yet but will open those to the public as soon as they come available," WithaCapitalG said, "But for now, I'm on vacation. So those don't seem quite as important right now."

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- Just outside the construction site of the new stadium, thousands of fans eagerly awaited into the night for the lights to drop and the video board to light up. Just as many were trickling out, heading home and hoping for more luck in day two of the draft, the jumbotron flickered.

The well-known scene from Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park played to a hushed audience. Muldoon had traversed into the jungle to find the raptor only to be surprised by the cunning creature. "Clever girl," he says just as the lights shot up and WithaCapitalG stepped out.

"This is exciting for me personally," WithaCapitalG said, "I had dinosaur parties when I was a kid. Believe it or not, I thought I was actually going to grow a raptor tail when I was little."

WithaCapitalG is also the majority owner of the AltHL's Chicago Ghosts. The past few months, he's been dealing with some tough times but the past few weeks have shown that nothing bad lasts forever and that he's here to stay.

"This expands the footprint of what myself and my team are comfortable with," WithaCapitalG said, "We're most mid-western or southern folk than anything. We'd eyed places like Kansas City, Tennessee, and San Antonio for a spot but this brand is just too good to pass up."


WithaCapitalG went on to detail the possible marketing strategies the fans can interact with on game days. Renderings of the original Jurassic Park gates and the horrifying screeches of a Velociraptor on third down playing over the loud speakers were just a few of the ideas mentioned.

"Overall, I'm thrilled to see you all stay up to watch this reveal. This is going to be a fun one," WithaCapitalG said.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I make custom pocket pros on the side. You bet the Raptor just moved to the top of my list.

 
Don’t want to crowd this thread, but it’s hard to quote cross threads. Seems you and I have similar design preferences with all the te

Gritty going with Philly keeps some of the safe picks in line..but we don't really have an idea on CapitalG..so we're in for a surprise..

I've learned that being unpredictable is your best ally. That being said, I'm here for the chaos of the rest of the draft.
