Nice job on the fields. Although, I feel like there would still be one or two teams that would still have very plain fields.

not to pile on here but given that this is what the (oakland) raiders' field looked like in 1969 I think all of these are plain (I assume the photobucket design is part of it, but I'm not 100% certain)

Revolutionary, honestly that's what is missing from my time-appropriate design. I will be better, and to start that here is an update for the Providence field:

Halifax Mariners - 13, Indiana Victors - 20 - Atlantic Stadium - June 19, 1969 -  6 PM ET - Kickoff - Weather: Partly Cloudy

10-13 HFX - FG K Albert Wickerweaver
4th Q
10-20 IND - PTD QB Tom Applewhite -> WR Ed Edwards
13-20 HFX - FG K Albert Wickerweaver

DB Neville Falkner’s debut with the Indiana Victors got off to a great start as he would get an interception on the opening drive of the game, setting up RB Raymond Green to score the first points of the 1969 season. 
The Victors shut down the Mariners’ offence in the first quarter, but QB Lyle Painter was able to find WR Jav Kerrigan for a touchdown midway through the second to get back into the game.
The 3rd would be a defensive duel, but the Mariners managed to pull to within 3 points of the Victors.
Unfortunately for the Mariners, Painter would throw another interception, this time to S Tom Parrish.
Shortly after the pick, Applewhite would find WR Ed Edwards to extend the lead to 10. 
The Victors would hold on, giving HC Urick Wilkins his first win as the Victors’ head coach against his former team.

Minnesota Serpents - 33, Louisville Thunder - 29 - Midgard Stadium - June 20, 1969 - 8 PM ET - FNF - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
3-0 MIN - FG K Ray Bough
2nd Q
6-0 MIN - FG K Ray Bough
6-7 LOU - RTD RB Théodore Lemieux

26-27 LOU - RTD RB Théodore Lemieux
26-29 LOU - 2PT QB Buck Murphy -> WR Casey Coleman
33-29 MIN - PTD QB Leonidas Dumont -> WR Evan Clanton

The NAAF welcomed the twin cities into the league with the Serpents' first game in their history.
The game started slow, but eventually, the Serpents would get their first-ever points off of a field goal from K Ray Bough.
Minnesota extended their lead early in the second but soon fell behind as the Thunder would get a pair of scores to take a 6-14 lead. 
Luckily for Minnesota, they would answer back just before the half when QB Leonidas Dumont hit WR Sebastian Dassler for a 62-yard touchdown.
The second half would start with the Serpents taking back the lead on a touchdown from RB Hugo Hughes, but the Thunder would answer back before the final frame.
The teams traded touchdowns in the 4th, with the Thunder getting a 3-point lead on a 2-point try. 
Former Thunder QB, Leonidas Dumont, would take the field and was looking for revenge for the team benching him for the last couple of seasons.
Dumont would lead the Serpents on a stellar game-winning drive that would end with WR Evan Clanton catching the go-ahead touchdown to secure the Serpents' first-ever victory. 
*Minnesota joins Indiana as the only expansion teams to win their first game

Ottawa Royals - 23, Long Island Raiders - 17 - Royals Stadium at Brewer Park - June 21, 1969 - 3 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy
1st Q
7-0 OTT - RTD RB Corbyn Knight
10-0 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
2nd Q
17-0 OTT - PTD QB Drake Young -> TE Luiss de Brands
17-3 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
3rd Q

4th Q
20-10 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
23-10 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
23-17 LI - PTD QB Ivan Sanchez -> WR Larry Mossholder

The Royals came out of the gate swinging against the Raiders, as former 3rd overall pick, QB Drake Young made his first start of his career. 
Young led the Royals on a great first drive leading to a Corbyn Knight touchdown, which certainly got the home crowd excited.
They would extend their lead to 10 after DB Jerome Caldwell picked off QB Ivan Sanchez on the Raiders’ first drive.
The Royals piled on in the 2nd with Young throwing his first career touchdown to TE Luiss de Brands. 
The bleeding finally stopped for the Raiders following the second Royals TD, as Sanchez would get them into field goal range just before the half.
The 3rd was a much better quarter for the Raiders, as their defence shut down the Royals’ offence, while RB Dareion Fields found the endzone. 
The Royals would bounce back with a pair of field goals to start the 4th, but the Raiders kept themselves in it with a late Larry Mossholder touchdown. 
Unfortunately for Long Island, they would fall short after Sanchez was intercepted for a second time, this time by S Marc Bellecourt.

Pittsburgh Blacksmiths - 10, Buffalo Blue Wings - 21 - Riverfront Stadium of Pittsburgh - June 21, 1969 - 7 PM ET - SNF - Weather: Partly Cloudy

3-7 PIT - FG K Al Highlander
3rd Q
3-14 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
10-14 PIT - PTD QB Louis Vaughn -> WR Taylor Austin
4th Q
10-21 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden

A sluggish opening quarter in Pittsburgh left both teams without any points to start the game, but eventually, WR Julius Drake would break the silence with a touchdown in the 2nd.
Pittsburgh only managed a field goal before the break, and then early in the 3rd, Buffalo added to their lead with a Jimmy Golden score.
The Blacksmiths were not looking very sharp with a couple of mistakes throughout the game, but they managed to score a touchdown near the end of the 3rd to keep themselves in the game.
Unfortunately for Pittsburgh, they would be run over by Golden yet again to give Buffalo the 10-21 lead, which would stand as the final score.

Boston Independents - 18, London Tigers - 24 - Richardson Stadium - June 22, 1969 - 1 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy
1st Q
3-0 BOS - FG K Woody Woodstock
3-7 LDN - PTD QB Riley Kiernan -> WR Joshua Lafleur
2nd Q
10-7 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Zachariah Pembroke
10-10 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
3rd Q
10-13 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth

4th Q
17-17 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
18-17 BOS - Single K Woody Woodstock
18-24 LDN - PTD QB Riley Kiernan -> WR Carter Henderson

A new era for both teams as their coaches began their first season at the helm.
Surprisingly, the Dewey Doyle-led Tigers took the early lead with a Joshua Lafleur touchdown. 
In the second quarter, Boston took back the lead with a touchdown of their own, but London tied it up before the break.
In the second half, the Tigers would get 4 points to start to get away from the Independents, but RB Reggie Whitehead would barrel through the Tigers’ D-line to score a touchdown late in the 3rd.
The final quarter would see the Tigers tie up the game, but then sacrifice a single after K Woody Woodstock’s punt would bounce over the head of RB Jeremy Royal and into the endzone. 
London unfortunately would be stopped on their attempt to drive down the field and would be forced to punt. 
However, they would catch a huge break as DL Mo Kahn would punch the ball out of the arms of RB Reggie Whitehead as he attempted to run the clock. 
The Tigers took over and QB Riley Kiernan would find WR Carter Henderson for the game-winning TD. 

Toronto Steelheads - 19, Montreal Rouge - 17 - Anderson Stadium - June 22, 1969 - 4 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy
1st Q
0-3 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger
7-3 TOR - RTD RB Max Tracy
7-4 MTL - Single K Arthur Kettinger
2nd Q
10-4 TOR - FG K Vic Greatwood
10-11 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Russell Wilcox

4th Q
16-11 TOR - FG K Vic Greatwood
16-17 MTL - RTD RB Carter Roy
19-17 TOR - FG K Vic Greatwood 

The battle of the biggest Canadian cities would start with Montreal getting a field goal on their first drive, but Toronto would answer back with, you guessed it, Max Tracy. 
Montreal’s offence was struggling in the first half, especially after Gene Bishop threw his first of 3 picks on the day to DB Dwayne James. 
Toronto held a 10-4 lead, but Montreal was able to get a touchdown before the half to take the lead.
Bishop’s 2nd interception in the 3rd would land in the arms of DB Oliver Langstrom in his first game with his new team.
Toronto would continue to ride the leg of Vic Greatwood, adding a pair of field goals which was helped by Bishop’s 3rd pick to S Charles Clerk.
Montreal still managed to hang around with a solid 4th quarter drive, ending with a RB Carter Roy touchdown to give them the lead, unfortunately, they would miss the 2-point conversion.
Toronto would manage to drive down to get into field goal range and K Vic Greatwood would barely make a 46-yard kick to win the game for the Steelheads.

Re: North American Association of Football - NAAF

Well, I guess there is a championship hangover in the NAAF as well, just sucks it also cost us a starting OL for the season as well as a quality WR for next week.

Re: North American Association of Football - NAAF

Providence didn't even play this week and still managed to drop in the PR dang

On the other hand, Indy got a nice win to start and Ray Bough scored the first points in Serpents history, so that's cool. Less cool that Minny beat Louisville.

The Gold Stars’ season got off to a strong start as WR Mark Taylor would take the opening kickoff back to the house for a touchdown.
However, after the Gold Stars’ opening score, Buffalo would take over the game, scoring 20 straight points.
QB Ulysses Lawyer, who was the first new QB to start the season for the Gold Stars since 1955 (when Connor O’Rourke took over), did struggle throughout the first half throwing an interception and getting sacked 3 times.
Providence finally answered back with a field goal in the 3rd, but the game turned around in the 4th when DL Bartolo Cruz would knock the ball out of RB Jimmy Golden’s arms to give the Gold Stars great field position.
Shortly after, WR Justin Palmer would make a great play scoring a 32-yard touchdown to pull the Gold Stars back to within 3.
The Gold Stars would catch another break later with LB Kurt Warlock knocking the ball out of the arms of WR Tracy Driscoll, which would lead to the game-tying field goal.
After blowing the 13-point lead, the Blue Wings would not let Providence back into the game in overtime, scoring 2 touchdowns to win the game by 14.

Pittsburgh bounced back to tie the game in the 2nd but would be down by 3 heading into the break.
In the second half, the Mariners would build up a lead with Rashed Smith’s first touchdown as a Mariner and 4 more points from kicks.
Pittsburgh only managed a field goal while QB Louis Vaughn struggled, throwing a pick to DB Joe Robinson, instead of a touchdown to WR Taylor Austin.

Minnesota’s first trip into Montreal saw them jump out to a 0-6 lead in the first, while Montreal’s offence was still struggling with the new offence.
After throwing a pick in the first quarter, Gene Bishop was able to get the team on the board in the 2nd and then tie the game to start the 3rd. 
The Serpents were finally able to break the field goal streak as QB Leonidas Dumont found WR Ferdinand Matthews in the endzone for a big score.
Minnesota would extend the lead early in the 4th after Gene Bishop threw his second pick of the game.
Montreal bounced back with a strong drive that ended with a WR Taylor Karis touchdown, to pull within 3 points.
Unfortunately, the Serpents would not let up and their next drive would be a slow drive that killed several minutes on the clock.
RB Hugo Hughes would get a bit of revenge on the Rouge by scoring a touchdown at the end of the long drive to seal the Serpents’ 2-0 start, the best start for an expansion team. 

Indiana Victors - 33, Boston Independents - 26 - OT - Victory Stadium - June 29, 1969 - 4 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy

Indy would tie the game heading into halftime, but Boston broke the tie early in the 3rd.
Indian started to take over in the later half of the 3rd, putting up 10 points to get up to a 7-point lead.
In the 4th, Boston rallied and tied the game up with RB Reggie Whitehead scoring against his former team.
The Victors would get a late field goal to retake the lead, but Boston was able to march down and tie it on the final drive of regulation, giving the league its 3rd OT match of the week.
In the extra frame, each team got a field goal to start, but QB Tom Applewhite would find WR Ed Edwards in the endzone, making a great grab with DB Lawrence Ralph all over him, to take the lead and win the game.

The 3rd quarter would see the Serpents get back into the lead early with a great throw from QB Leonidas Dumont, hitting a small window to WR Sebastian Dassler.
Halifax didn’t take lightly the score and would get into the endzone on back-to-back drives, which was also helped by a DB Joe Robinson interception.
The Serpents would manage the new 10-point deficit very well and would tie the game up in the 4th with a pair of scores.
However, despite the effort by Minnesota, the Mariners’ offence would get down the field and would get the game-winning field goal to take the win.

In the second half, the Royals’ defence took over, creating 3 turnovers, while the offence continued to rack up the points. 
The defence even got in on the scoring when S Marc Bellecourt took QB Ivan Sanchez by surprise on the blitz out of the secondary to take him down in the endzone for a safety.
