So for a chance to win some free weeks all you have to do is correctly predict what teams will win from the matches below. In case of a tie there is a tie breaker in place. In case of another tie there is yet another one. So without further ado here is what you could win in this NHL prediction sweepstakes. 1st place will receive a D3 and a D2 which is 2 free weeks, 2 doubles weeks and 6 uncapped TPE 2nd place will receive a D2 and a D1 which is 2 free weeks and 1 doubles week 3rd place will receive 2 D1's which is 2 free weeks 4th - 6th will all receive a D1 which is 1 free week As you can see there are some pretty awesome prizes here so I highly recommend you get your predictions in. All predictions are due by 1200 EST on Feb 11th anything later than that will not be counted. Also you do not need to notate an Overtime or Shootout win, just which team wins the game. Time for the games! Away Home Feb. 11th Detroit vs Buffalo Arizona vs Toronto Florida vs New Jersey Philadelphia vs NY Islanders Tampa Bay vs Pittsburgh Vegas vs Minnesota NY Rangers vs Winnipeg Carolina vs Dallas Ottawa vs Colorado Chicago vs Edmonton St. Louis vs Anaheim Feb 12th Montreal vs Boston Calgary vs Los Angeles Chicago vs Vancouver Now for the tie breaker!

    I find it hard to write in the offseason, and this one is definitely dragging on, which makes writing even harder. With the extra week in between seasons, the very disappointing end to the Herd’s year and my days off work all lining up perfectly, my anticipation for the new season is at an all time high. But as my players age, the need to keep grinding out tpe to fight regression is even more important. So excuse my rambling on for a bit so I can claim this as a point task. This is now day three of trying to write this, and until I woke up, I still wasn’t sure if this was going to be an article or a ranking. I settled on an article and if anyone is still reading, the rest will be about what went thru my mind during this offseason as the GM of the Herd. I’m nearing 175 words now so I may as well get into it. The season ended pretty abruptly for us, I’m not sure many outside of Miami thought that we’d bow out in the division playoffs. New York has easily handled the Neptune in the regular season, both home and away, so I know I was feeling confident. Any time I’ve managed a team, be it in a sim league or video game or fantasy, I’ve always liked to tinker or change things if I had lost or things looked like they could be improved upon. And in the past, I think I’ve regretted it. So going against my gut, I left things mostly alone going into the playoffs. I was pretty proud of myself for that. In the end, it didn’t go as planned and we came out on the sims bad side. It’s happened to everyone who has managed in this league and it’s going to keep on happening. We were also going against two much more experienced managers in Wheaties and Alecbama, who was playing both sides. For a few hours after the game, I pondered blowing everything up and rebuilding, but with Memphis aggressively trying to turn things around and a very talented group coming back, I came to my senses and focused on loading up again. Now knowing where I’d likely be picking in the first round and what I expected to be available when I picked, made my free agency targets that much easier. Obviously after trading for Jean Christophe and knowing Enorama wanted to keep his players together, that was where I was going to use the majority of my efforts. Ultimately, that didn’t pan out, I know we were close in the end and San Antonio will also be a good fit for both his players. I knew I’d have to gamble big to win big, but you don’t win them all. After that, I had a couple conversations with some other very valuable free agents, but again, they all picked what they felt were better fits for them. And I can’t say I blame them at all. Bringing back all of our S17 offense was a priority, as it was a pretty lethal group and even though a large chunk were regressing, I knew they could still produce against any defense in the EFL. Knock on wood. The big need was at linebacker with Sabathia and Sanguszko both retiring, even though many mock drafts and users seemed to think we were in need of a quarterback. I had a couple players in mind at pick 6 after I was unable to move up in the draft, and was pretty pleased to get Cody Sackett when it was our turn to pick. In the second and third rounds, I was hoping to beef up the secondary on the chance that Christophe wouldn’t be returning. Looking back I’m glad I did. Selecting Hazuki and Sharkstrong’s filler gave me some flexibility to make the trade later on to acquire Steven Donovan from Seattle, and not leave us hanging out to dry when Christophe did go to San Antonio. After Christophe did tell me that he was going elsewhere, I was able to land Ray Ray Foster to beef up our linebacking core and help out in the secondary when needed. In part, I’m hoping with both of Alecbama’s players, he can give me some advice this season and we can at least make the finals. When the dust had all settled we were able to outbid New Orleans for LB Bjorn Lothbrok and I was pretty happy with what we’d be going to battle with every week. But Los Angeles came knocking looking for my previous filler Wayne Howerynough and his ability to play 2 positions. Or they expect things to get rough in the Old West this year. I’d want the toughest guy in letterkenny on my side in a fight too. Moving Wayne got us TJ Hendrix or JJ. I can’t remember, but we have both Hendrix players now, so we’ll be in luck if he ever returns. One team offered a very interesting trade shortly after the draft as well, which I definitely pondered the merits of it for quite some time. In the end, the deal fell apart and probably for the best of both clubs. Awards night was bittersweet as well. Like in S16, New York dominated both the individual awards and the Pro Bowl selections, with Herd players picking up a whopping 9 awards and 10 Pro Bowl spots. Somehow I won GM of the year, which still mystifies me, an impressive regular and a lame duck showing in the playoffs didn’t warrant the award in my mind. Obviously others disagreed. And like I said after the S16 awards, I’d gladly trade those in for more team success. And now we wait for the new season. I’m excited as all hell and bored at the same time. Luckily now I’m on day 4 of writing this and am back to work on night shift, which provides me plenty of free time to finish writing and catch up on watching TV shows. If you’ve read this much, I love you haha. I won’t be tagging anyone in this, cause I do feel bad for anyone to have to read through this all. 1076 +/- words

    Long. Live. Texas. As I’ve been here a long time now, I feel like it’s time for me to express and let everyone know how I feel about my house, the University of Texas. I refer to this college as my house because this is where I spent my days and some of my nights practicing to become more than your average NCAA joe. I’ve never wanted to be just an athlete, I aimed every time to be the best player I could be and person, it all starts with the person man. That’s what I have been learning with my Athletic Director @TacticalHammer. He’s simply outstanding and has been helping me a lot getting to know every single bit of the league that is there to know and to that, I will probably never be able to thank him for what he has taught me in such a short stamp of time. The reason I first came to Texas was for following pride and win but now the reason I’m here is because I simply love this place and to be honest, I would never leave them but I will have to when I decide to declare to the EFL draft and be lucky enough for a team to pick me. I’ve dreamt of being in a place where I could trust everyone and here’s the place. From Alumni’s who often visit us and give us amazing advice to my former colleagues and everyone who’s part of the Texas family helps us grow! From a handful of colleges I could’ve picked, I’m thankful for picking Texas and I would do it over and over again a million times. Ja in action - Freshman year The city of Austin has also been very welcoming and mostly every time I go to some place there’s someone greeting me and telling that they appreciate the work we are putting in, in order to succeed which is very motivating for a young guy like me. A kid from Memphis who is 647 miles far from their family couldn’t feel more happy about finding a place where the pain of being far from home isn’t heavy enough to interfere with my commitment to play this beautiful game. Lastly, the history and the stadium. The history of the LongHorns in this league is simply the best and the greatest. The championships, the personal accolades are all happening because everybody works their asses off. We will build more history while I’m here as this amazing group of people is special. The Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium… The biggest stadium I had played before joining Texas was relatively small so my first season here was something that I will never forget. 100.000 people screaming our name, clapping, talking thrash at our opponents. It’s hilarious but you can feel that there’s an aura in this place, there’s so much respect coming from everyone who attends the game, it’s nuts. A view from the Darrel K from the stands The work that Tac and everyone who is part of this program is doing should be an inspiration to every single team in the NCAA and on the EFL. It’s not easy to have this amazing, inspiring and thrilling set of players and be a natty runner every damn season. I’m blessed and thankful for having me. Sincerely, Ja LongArm Texas Quarterback

    So for my ranking, I decided to rank the team location plus mascot based on what I think looks good, sounds good, etc. I really do not know much about the pro league here, so I'm hoping that doing so will get me better acclimated into the pro scene since both of my players are uncapping this season for USC. 8. LA Reign It has a nice ring to it, but all in all this is my least favorite branding. I don't really understand why it's LA and not Los Angeles. I know that the city is colloquially known as LA, but none of the other teams are abbreviated. Anyway back to the logo, I suppose it's saying that lions are the king, so it's cat themed. Animal themes are good for sports, but connecting a "reigning king/queen" to lion as a mascot is a bit of a stretch to me. 7. New York Herd This one to me draws the closest parallel to the NFL with the Buffalo Bills, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I just really don't like the logo. Why is there a tail in the outline? I thought maybe the outline was supposed to be the body of a herd animal, but with the lower half being football shaped, I'm just not sure. The name is good, but the logo is my least favorite of the bunch. 6. Wisconsin Brigade Something tells me I'm going to be in the minority with this, but the logo doesn't do it for me. I do like that it actually has the name of the team, so I don't really need to know anything about the league to get that, but the shadowing and the teeth just ruin this one for me. I'm probably ignorant about a lot of things Wisconsin, but Brigade does not sound like something Wisconsin-y to me. 5. Seattle Predators I'm not entirely familiar with the PNW region, but I have to imagine they have some wild cats in the area. After a quick google search, it does look like there are cougars, so at least this is staying a bit true to the region. The name itself does invoke a good competitive type name, but it's also a rather generic word. The logo ties it in with a cat, but it's not the strongest branding, in my opinion. 4. New Orleans Kraken As someone born and raised in New Orleans, this one intrigues me. I'm not sure if I should draw a connection from Kraken to pirates to New Orleans? Either way, the logo is kinda cool, and the branding is original as a Kraken is 100% a terrifying monster. I just don't normally associate squids or octopuses with New Orleans, but maybe that's just me. 3. San Antonio Wolfpack Who does like a big fluffy wolf brand? I know for sure that coyotes exist in Texas, so that works out. The name Wolfpack itself invokes a good team aspect not to mention something to be feared. All in all, I rather like the logo and name of this team. 2. Miami Neptune I've not been that positive about most of these brandings, but I do actually like this one. Miami's is in no shortage of water access, so Neptune absolutely fits here. Playing against the God of the Sea would be pretty terrifying in a sports setting, so this branding absolutely gets my vote at number 2. 1. Memphis Mambas This one hits all the right notes for me. I love the alliteration and the logo itself is pretty terrifying. I wish the Vipers logo in the SBA was as good as this guy. Memphis itself is a pretty cool city, so with all of those taken into account, this is the overall number 1. So there is my first look at the brandings of the EFL. If I keep looking at them, I'll get used to them over time. I know that eight teams isn't the biggest number, but for someone who hasn't really paid much attention to the pro scene here, some of these names are forgettable.

As a new season dawns on us, spring trainings across all the campuses are beginning to wrap up, fields are being prepared for that first preseason game. Predictions start to come out about who will win it all this year, who will be bottom of the barrel. But for the first time in a long time some questions have arisen regarding the league. Will they expand? There are finally more players available on the market than teams have space for, so many believe the time is ripe for expansion. Yet who would we bring into this elite fold of teams? It cant be just anyone, so today I will look for 5 teams in each conference that have the potential to join our league. The things I'm looking for are as follows. 1. Reputation: I want a team that has a rich and proud history of winning and being competitive 2. Iconic: We want teams that really have something unique or famous about them 3: Division: It would get rather boring if all one side of the leage was Pac-12 and the other side was SEC. Bringing in different leagues is key to keep things fresh Disclaimer: These are in no way shape or form in any sort of ranking system. Just because I have a school at number 1 doesnt mean I think thats the first choice. They just happened to get covered first. EAST 1. Ole Miss Ole Miss is one of those schools that is high in prestige and always good on the national level. They've won 3 national championships since their induction in 1893. Also being featured in arguably the best football movie ever made The Blind Side really can help with public relations if this team were to be implemented. Overall in bowl games they are 24 - 13 with their most recent coming in 2015 against Oklahoma. But sadly Ole Miss is apart of SEC and well we already have a couple of those in the league. 2. Ohio State Sticking with the trend of schools the begin with O, Ohio State is up next. Originally in the league the team was for whatever reason replaced after a few seasons. Now though, might just be the best time to bring them back. Since their inception they have won 8 national titles, their most recent in 2014 where they defeated Oregon 42 - 20. The Ohio "O" is recognizable just about anywhere you go at anytime, hell my neighbors in Idaho are Buckeye fans. On the downside though, Ohio does have a mediocre bowl record of 24 - 26. Division wise, Ohio is apart of the Big 10 so I would say it is feasible to add them to the crew. 3. University of Florida Moving back down to the southern side of of the country the gators would be an excellent addition to the league to give Miami some company down there. The Gators, which is honestly just fun to say, have won 5 national championships, 3 claimed and 2 unclaimed. As well as have a bowl record of 24 - 21 the most recent of those coming in 2019 against Virginia. I have yet to go anywhere in the continental U.S (And I have been through most of the state by car) where there isnt at least 1 Florida gator stickor or merch or whatever. It's everywhere. But just like the merch, SEC is everywhere in this league and it might be difficult to bring Florida in because of that. 4. Tennessee Tennessee is an old school highlight of success, nothing can deny them that. With 14 total National Championships 6 claimed, 8 unclaimed in the 1900's they had a class program back in the day. On top of that they have a bowl record of 29 - 24 with the most current being The Gator Bowl in 2019. And with a big name in the money business, Dave Ramsey, being a huge Tennessee fan, their fame only grows from it. But once again this is another SEC team... why are there so many great SEC teams? 5. Clemson Hmmm what's the to not like about this move? Clemson fits the bill in just about every possible scenario that I can think of. National Champions yea check, How about bowl wins? 22 -19 record all time. Popularity.... teams that make it to the National Championship 5 years out of 6.... yea they're popular right now. Oh and want to hear the best part? They're in the ACC, which is a totally new division! Slap my stamp of approval on this and lets get them in here already. Honorable Mentions Wisconsin, Minnesota and UNC WEST 1. Arizona State I'm really trying to find a team that isn't in California or Texas here, but is still recognizable. And then it hit me well hey Arizona's not a terrible idea. They have 5 national championships under their belts which is solid, they have a meh bowl record but then again most teams do. Arizona sits at 15-16-1 in all time bowl games. Popularity wise I don't know many who have never heard of the Sun Devils. Overall I think they would be a good fit despite being another PAC-12 team 2. Boise Anyone who's been listening to me these past couple days will know that this mention was inevitable. For those who havent here's the skinny. BSU has won a national championship and is 12 - 7 in bowl games. They are pretty well known despite the small population around them and are famous for their blue turf. The big part here is they would bring in the MW division. A division which compared to PAC-12 is yes much weaker and less popular but it's still a new division. And out of all the MW teams to bring in, Boise State is among the best. 3. Hawaii Again looking for another team that's not California or Texas based. One would suggest Washington but honestly Hawaii would be way more fun. While they haven't won a national title yet., and their bowl record is only 7 - 6. Hawaii is much more of a location and geographical appeal. The school is famous because it's Hawaii and who doesn't want to go there? Somehow they are roped into the MW division as well which serves well for them since if they were to get added in they would bring in a new division. 4. Oklahoma Oh Oklahoma, we salute you as you endeavor every year to defeat the hated Longhorns. Will we give them the opportunity to do the same here though? With 2 national titles, 1 claimed 1 unclaimed, and a bowl record of 19 - 10 which is one of the best bowl records Ive seen on this list. The issue becomes with popularity. Oklahoma isnt exactly a tourist destination like Hawaii, unless your a tornado chaser of course. They are also apart of the Big 12 conference so they dont add much division diversity, but they add one hell of a rivalry. 5. UCLA I do solemnly believe that UCLA would be a great add to pit up against the likes of USC. Think about the blue and gold vs the red and gold yes wonderful! UCLA has won a single national championship and has a bowl record of 16 - 19 - 1 so not great, not terrible middle of the road. yet the amount of prestige that place has is ridiculous. People everywhere know what UCLA is, it's just a fact of life. UCLA is another PAC-12 contender but I dont see that being an overall detriment as it is a very strong division. Honorable Mentions Texas A&M, Washington, Stanford (The NCAA Weekly is hiring, if you are interested in joining our team please send in a request to Caboose#7681 on Discord, explaining why you feel you would be a good fit for the crew.)

    What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it.

    Damn that Mambas game was actually pretty good. Carswell was an animal @LittleRiDog and Vorschlaghammer and Longfingers both put up some really nice numbers @TacticalHammer@jhatty8. Defense still has a way to go but our core there is still really good, just young, glad to see Easton get a sack at least @Tate. On to the next one

    With the 9th pick in the S18 EFL Draft, the Memphis Mambas select…Hunter Higgins, safety, Oregon This was the culmination of all the hard work in high school and college that Hunter Higgins had put in. All the long hours spent practising, training and studying film. All the sacrifices made along the way, all of it completely worth it to hear his name read out on draft night by Memphis “It was a surreal experience, to be honest. It was like, holy crap, this has actually happened” Higgins said in his first media conference as a Mamba “Getting to the EFL, it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do for as long as I can remember and now that it’s actually happened, I’m just so excited and grateful for this chance” “I called my family once I’d be drafted and they were all pretty emotional, but obviously extremely happy for me. I even heard my dad crying in the chapel for the first time in ages when he told me how proud he was of me. I had to tell him don’t cry daddy to get him to stop” Higgins admitted not even he expected he would go where he did “I did speak with Memphis prior to the draft and I certainly thought they might be one of the teams that might take me. if I’m being truthful, I didn’t expect to go at nine. In my suspicious mind, I thought I’d be going a little later on” Higgins will join what is shaping up to be an extremely talented draft class for Memphis, with fellow Mambas Jailhouse Rock Lemington, Easton West, Mikey 2 Dope, Lorrence Longfingers and Antonio Gonzalez also selected alongside Higgins This past draft has just further influenced Memphis’ rebuild movement following Memphis’ back-to-back championship winning roster becoming all shook up. The S18 class will join the likes of Vince Carswell, Sho Itou and the outstandingly named Taktischer Vorschlaghammer in forming what has the potential to be a formidable young core for the Mambas “It’s exciting to be a part of this group of younger guys that can all grow and develop together and form the next generation of great Mamba players” Higgins said “Some might look at our record from the previous season and be hesitant to join but I see a tremendous opportunity and a future that looks to be very bright. It’ll take a little time, I fully aware of that, but when all the young talent we have peaks, we’re looking at something pretty special” “Having said that, I know it’s not just a given, I’ve still got to work as hard as I always have to unlock my potential and continue improving my game. The EFL is a different beast to college so it’s going to be a step up and with that, I need to step up my play as well” Higgins finished off his conference by addressing how he was settling into life in Memphis. The safety is believed to currently be staying in a heartbreak hotel while he settles on a permanent place to live but has already embraced the spirit of one of Memphis’ famous favourite sons, having walked into the press conference sporting a pair of blue suede shoes. “I haven’t been here all that long, but I can’t help falling in love with Memphis and the people that’ve already embraced me. I spoke often of my love for Eugene and the community whilst I was at Oregon and I’ve got no doubt it’ll be the same way here as well. I hope the Mamba fans and the people Memphis get used to me and love me tender, because I’m in this for the long haul” Higgins concluded For those feeling moody blue without football and are after a little less conversation and a little more football action, the Mambas will return to the field for pre-season on the 5th of February.

    Well another good season awards wise for the Herd. Didn’t translate into playoff success, but maybe next year. Hat trick for Logan Crawford. MVP, OPOTY, QBOTY. All very well deserved. One of the all time greats. @Symmetrik Another if the all time greats Chando Sabathia going out with a bang. LBOTY and DPOTY. Sorry we couldn’t get you that ring to cap it all off. @omgitshim You haven’t been around in forever, but another TEOTY for Johnny Bravo. And apparently A great kicker too. @duckberg Please come back. Wicked first season for Jeff Downey, another well deserved award in a tough category. First of many more to come @Jeff You may have deserted us, but you still won this as a Herdsman, so congrats on the SOTY and all the best in the future for Jean Christophe @Enorama Congrats to all the other award winners this year. Finally a WROTY for Patrick Kelley @Patdatass. One of the best receivers in this generation finally getting recognized. Thanks to everyone that voted Dee Fence for CBOTY, another award that could’ve gone a few different ways. And for GMOTY. Definitely didn’t think I deserved it with how the year ended, but I’ll take it. Will still trade all these for some playoff success.
