Re: Professional Football Organization: Wave of the Typhoon (Yr 2; 1978)

The fourth & final team of the PFO's central division, the Detroit Motors, have been America's lovable loser since 1944, with their only claims to fame being the annual Thanksgiving Day game against the Howling Hounds of the Windy City. Like with Kansas City, Detroit has never played in the Royal Crown championship. However, the most supportive fans in the league will never stop cheering on the Motors, while preaching good sportsmanship. Logos & Unis are below

Re: Professional Football Organization: Wave of the Typhoon (Yr 2; 1978)

Time for to reveal the next division of the 1977 PFO season, the Western Division, starting with the defending champion Portland Renegades. In 1950, The Portland Runners were started in Maine by local shoemaker Albert Williams II. However, last place finishes in 1950 & 51 bankrupted the shoemaker. Deep in debt, Williams sold his team to the 28-year-old head coach that got Portland to a surprising 7-4-1 season in 1952, Tom Adams. Adams immediately moved his team to the other Portland; Portland, Oregon, renaming them "Renegades" to embody Portland's renegade attitude, The Renegades are well-known for  playing dirty and throwing haymakers after the whistle, just like Adams did while fighting in the Pacific Theater in ww2. The fans in the Underpass (which is directly under a highway, with the highway's road serving as an un-air conditioned dome) are rude too, the complete antithesis of the vibe in Detroit's.

I like this one a lot, moving from Portland to Portland is so funny. If you look closely you can see a P and a R in the logo.

Re: Professional Football Organization: Wave of the Typhoon (Yr 2; 1978)

The second team of the Western Division comes from the organization's smallest market, Salt Lake City, UT. Starting out in 1950 as the Buffalo Blizzard. In 1952, the Blizzard moved to Minnesota, were rebranded as the "Blue Ox," and became the most successful team from the brief run of the International Football League. Once the IFL folded, the Blue Ox were the clear #1 choice of the PFO & the AAFC, After much deliberation (AKA, a hefty bribe from the New York Hawks), the Blue Ox joined the PFO alongside Georgia, New Jersey & San Francisco, while the AAFC got Havana (who merged with the Miami Seahawks), Boston, & Toronto. However, it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows for the Blue Ox, as attendence started to wain once the success stopped in the 60s, forcing another move westward, landing in the Mormon capital, Salt Lake City, in 1972.

Interesting! Merger might be possible here!

Re: Professional Football Organization: Wave of the Typhoon (Yr 2; 1978)

The 3rd team in the western division is the Golden State's only current team, and unlike the first two teams in the western division, is an expansion franchise. In 1960, Argentinian agricultural mogul Raul Gomez attempted to buy the Chicago Hounds for 300 million USD (about $2.5 billion in 2020) and relocate them to Buenos Aires. The PFO rejected the deal (despite the offer being more than twice the value of the entire PFO+AAFC combined), but not wanting to alienate the extremely wealthy Gomez, the organization offered him a team in Gomez Foods' US Headquarters, San Diego, CA, for the 1966 season. Gomez agreed on the condition that he got all revenue from international broadcasting (except Canada), exclusive rights over the LA market until 1986, and Candlestick Park (which was 100% owned by the San Francisco Seagulls; the AAFC's 49ers played in Kezar Stadium). Gomez named the team "Sol" to appeal to fans in Central & South America.

Re: Professional Football Organization: Wave of the Typhoon (Yr 2; 1978)

Looking good for the Sol! Hopefully Phoenix has the last team in the West, if not this may be my team.

Re: Professional Football Organization: Wave of the Typhoon (Yr 2; 1978)

The 4th & final team in the western division is hails from the Lone Star State. In 1966, in order to compete with the AAFC's Houston Oilers, the PFO took their own stab at a Texas team. Due to some disagreements between the City of Dallas and the owner of the USFL's Dallas Texans, Lamar Hunt; Dallas became free for the taking. This allowed oil millionaire J.R. Ewing (yes, from the TV show) who had been spurned by the AAFC in favor of Houston, to finally get his own team. Rather than try to copy the Oilers, he chose a classic look of the old cowboy, going with the Six-Shooters. Unfortunately, like his 1966 counterpart in Cali, Ewing has yet to win a title, let alone a western conference championship (Chicago & Portland have hogged all of those up)

Re: Professional Football Organization: Wave of the Typhoon (Yr 2; 1978)

Am I missing something?  This league has been around since the 1920s but all the championships have been won by practically two teams ?
