    A FICTIONAL HISTORY OF FOOTBALL I am not sure how long I will keep this dynasty going as I am sure there will be some fixes I will want to take advantage of in future beta releases forcing me to restart it but I am really enjoying seeing how things are unfolding in my college league so I felt I wanted to start a dynasty report to document it.

    When the league headquarters announced the sale of the Altona Dragons to an unnamed bar owner in the small town of Warman most around the league didn’t bat an eye.

    BradS of the OOTP Development forums states: Good luck to them hope they do well. One thing noticed in boxscore is how many big scoring plays via the run.

Population: 66,000 and change. But the town’s dying. In 1930 there were 170,000 souls here. It’s been a steady decline ever since…a downward spiral for nearly 90 years. You’ve heard about the Rust Belt. Well, Youngstown has one of the bigger layers of rust. Yeah, we’re the county seat, but so what! The whole county is wasting away. I grew up in Youngstown and still live here.... Read more »

In an unforeseeable postseason run, the Marauders defeated the West Chicago Protons in the finals to win their first GHL Cup, the first winners in 7 years outside West Chicago or Deadwood in Game World Biscuit. The team's shocking victory was largely due to the unbelievable performance of the team's 25-year-old goalie Jeffrey Hanrahan, who not only had a .946 save percentage in the playoffs but also shut out the Protons 2-0 in the final game of the series, rewarding management's 7-year commitment with a Conn Smythe-worthy...

Although ranked 18th overall, GM Zhou felt comfortable selecting Larmour saying, "our scouts felt he deserved to be ranked higher than he was by CSS. He has a terrific, heavy shot with a quick release and an ability to get it off seamlessly in tight and under pressure, tools that are going to translate to the next level." A versatile player, Larmour excelled on both the powerplay and... Read more »

  • Five Friends/Foes (DDSCB2017)
    Over the years through premier youth basketball, AAU basketball, and college basketball, five players became friends. Sometimes they were on opposing teams and at other times they played on the same teams. After graduating from college, all five eventually became assistant coaches. In 2016, college basketball realigned into twenty-two 16-team conferences. These were set up based on the present strengths of the 352 teams with the 16 best teams in Conference A, the next 16 best teams in Conference B, and all the way down to the lowest rated 16 teams being in Conference V. Due to this drastic change,... Read more »

    It was a little less than 5 years ago when talks about a NHL team back in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The struggling (then) Phoenix Coyotes were bankrupt and the City of Glendale, Arizona were tasked with covering the costs of the team. The NHL who owned them at the time said either you cover the costs or we walk. So at the 11th hour, the City of Glendale decided to pick up te tab to save their team. So now what would happen with the Winnipeg group that was looking for a NHL team? Sights turned to the East coast... Read more »

The Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Hockey Club, Ottawa Senators and the Montreal Wanderers all took part in this season.

    The National Hockey League is coming into it's 15th Season when the NHL Board of Governors thought something had to change. Now leading up to the off-season, new players would be drafted into the league rather than just signed by teams. This would give teams who are not doing so well in the standings a chance to get better by next year. All stats leading up to this season were wiped from the record books as this is the "New" NHL. The team owners also agreed to have all the players be put into an Inaugural Draft. 401 players will... Read more »

    In our last Purple Reign story, the Vikings had either been very dominant, or crippled by the injury bug. This injury bug must have carried over to my Xbox, and the old Purple Reign is no more. But this time, we're ready to re-write the script, with GM Bundy at the helm of the 2014 Vikings again, ready again to take on the NFL and bring the Vikings their first (of hopefully many) Lombardi trophy. 1st Pre-Season Game, 2014 The Vikings absolutely dominated the Raiders, though at times the score board didn't show that.

    During my interview for the head coaching job at Memphis, Steve Forester, the AD, said he was tired and the alumni were tired of Memphis playing 3rd fiddle to Kentucky and Louisville. The more we talked, the more I realized that this was my opportunity to make a huge jump from a very low mid-major in the coaching ranks to an up-and-comer. Steve said he wanted a coach who would “do whatever it takes” to make Memphis a powerhouse team. Not only does he want the Tigers to best Kentucky and Louisville, he wants a national championship, and better yet,... Read more »
  • Purple Reign: A Vikings Dynasty (Madden 15)
    In 2014, Mike Zimmer took over as head coach of the Minnesota Vikings. He inherited a team full of promising-but-undeveloped youth, in a tough division. A rookie quarterback was ready to shine, alongside a troubled runninback, underperformin receivers, an overpaid tight end, and a patchwork offensive line. A defense that had once been so dominant with stars known round the nation would have to rely on unknown and inexperienced youngsters. 2014 was not a good year for the Vikings. They started off with three losses, before finally defeating a team (their then-undefeated rival, the Green Bay Packers). The rest of... Read more »

She was a Boeing 737-200, almost brand new with less than 1,000 hours wear, and her red, white and blue hull arced gracefully through the sky as she banked into the traffic pattern at Logan International. She was a full flight with some 120 people on board including crew, mostly businessmen with a handful of revelers in the back rows determined to paint the city green well in advance of St. Patrick's Day. Of the former, there... Read more »
  • Dysfunctional Dave McGee, a DDS:CB3 Dynasty
    As told by Dave's friend, Michael "Red" O'Connor Dysfunctional Dave McGee I guess it even surprises me how long I’ve been with Dave. He’s not an easy guy to get along with- hell, he’s impossible to get along with- three ex-wives, not a single other long term friendship, no connection to his family… The man the media has always called “Dysfunctional” Dave McGee is one of a kind. He has a fierce, hair trigger temper, he has been known to get into street brawls, and more often bar brawls, he drinks way too much, he is constantly mad at the... Read more »

  • The Super Baseball League [OOTP]
    NOTE: This is also posted here: http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/board/ootp-dynasty-reports/252200-super-baseball-league.html This morning I really worked on making a fictional league for the first time. My league is (mostly) completed, and it is called the Super Baseball League. I started it in 2002 and simmed the first three seasons to create a bit of history. I have no minors, other than that it is standard MLB settings. I haven't been able to get all the uniforms loaded, so for now I have FaceGens turned off. Here are the SBL teams w/ 2002 standings: And the history: Finances: Saint Louis has one good team. They... Read more »
  • The Road to the Hall of Fame [OOTP]
    Hi everyone. After just starting to repost one of my dynasties here I've had a change of heart. After going back and reposting several posts I feel like I'm doing double work. Maybe if I started fresh it would work better, or maybe it's just what I'm used to. I just know for me that if I keep doing that I'm going to abandon it here eventually. So hopefully this will work out a little better for me, and I'll be doing this dynasty exclusively here. I've had pretty good success in the past with a narrow focus for a... Read more »

  • Bill Bradley: Rebuilding the Rockies [OOTP]
    Entry #1 I think I'd better introduce myself. I'm Bill Bradley, and I'm the new Rockies GM. I was recently hired, and I'm excited to be a part of this wonderful organization. I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and I lived there until I went off to college to play baseball and get a degree in business. I was drafted professionally by the Baltimore Orioles, but my career fizzled out after a few years, and I decided to join the front office. Here I am! I hope to get this team up to a championship caliber year in and year... Read more »
  • Major League Baseball Reimagined (OOTP 16)
    Hi everyone. I'll be cross posting this dynasty that I started a few days ago in the OOTP forums, so just a bit of catch-up to get started. ------- Every time a new version comes out I like to create a new league and take it for a test drive. There are several new features in OOTP 16 that I'm excited for, and thought that it would be fun to start in 1871 and replay a history of Major League Baseball. I won't be taking control of any team, and will be using OOTP 'out of the box', at least... Read more »
  • In a World without Baseball.... [OOTP]
    Scenario: The year is 1972. The United States has not had a functional major baseball league since 1942. The countries focus on World War II drew the populations attention away from the national past-time. And in the process, soccer made it's way into the States after all the soldiers came back home playing it. Chicago SC most recently defeated Los Angeles City in the Champions Playoffs. Sure the game is still played at the juvenile level, but no major league has developed since MLB folded. But some people aren't ready to let the sport die just yet.... News Clipping: Jan....

  • Oklahoma City Bison (Deep Route)
    EDIT: I restarted this franchise with a different Deep Route League after taking a few months off. The first version is alright, though a lot of it gets bland and repetitive. The second version kicks back up approximately 50 years after the first, and I'm trying to put more work and effort into it. To skip ahead to the 2nd Era, go to page 4, and scroll down. Our story begins in the 2035 off-season, in a league struggling to retain owners. Oklahoma City was awarded its first franchise, a team that had seen temporary location in Kansas City as...

  • The Jeremy Knight Experience v2.0 [Hoops Dynasty]
    So a while back I started a dynasty report using DDS:CB3. Needless to say, that quickly died out due to changing to a Mac (and not being able to play CB3 anymore) and not having any free time due to work and school. Anyways, I’ve been itching to get back into posting a dynasty story. The issue is I can still no longer play CB3. However, I have been playing Hoops Dynasty over at whatifsports.com and decided that I could write about that. I’m preparing to start my 18th season in this world so I figured I would use my...

  • Three On Five (FHM14- Original Players Dynasty)
    Hello All, I'm looking to shake up the Dynasty boards and start a new type of dynasty, one that focuses not on the general manager but on the development of the players. I started a game with Mar. 2014 rosters and simmed the game ahead one year. I then went to the Bantam league and customized three newgens to be the starts of the show. I will be chronicling their careers as they try to make it to the NHL. I tried to vary their skill levels and potentials to hopefully get them into the NHL as realistic players. It'll... Read more »

  • 1949 Boston Red Sox Season Replay
    1949 was the last shot for Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Johnny Pesky and Dom Dimaggio to get that elusive World Series title. It would be one of the all time great pennant races with the Red Sox finishing just short. The offense is there but the Red Sox could never get quite enough pitching. Could I manage this team to the pennant? It won't be easy especially after what happened on Opening Day. Follow along at 1949 Boston Red Sox Season Replay... Read more »

    John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and Bobby Cox are all enshrined in Cooperstown now but this group of Hall of Famers were only able to win it all once together. That came in 1995. The year before that the Braves made their first appearance in the NL East and found themselves trailing the Expos, but still leading the wildcard race when the strike canceled the season. There are so many questions to answer about 1994 and one of them is could this Braves team have won it all in 1994? We will find out. Opening Day was a successful... Read more »
  • Boston Celtics Dynasty 1984 and Beyond
    Taking over as GM of the Boston Celtics right after winning it all in 1984 is not a bad gig, the pressure is real though. The Larry Bird Celtics would only win one more title after 1984 while Magic and the Lakers would go on to win three more. It is my job to make sure that doesn't happen. The 1984-85 Celtics are loaded and are looking to repeat. So far, the Celtics have looked like champions while the Lakers are battling injuries. Injuries and age are what brought the Celtics down. Could this new history tilt in the Celtics... Read more »

He hopes to stay with UMass-Lowell for a long time, to see just how far up he can bring them. They are in the lowest Conference and have a Team Prestige rating of 2 (I set it at 0 but when it came up it was 2).... Read more »

I very quickly grew to be long and lean. I reached my full height of 6’11’, and my full weight of 195 in high school.

  • Tournament of Champions: Promotion, Relegation, and Forced Relocation
    Hi, everyone. I have left a dynasty of epic proportions on the back burner because my computer cannot handle it or OOTP cannot handle it. Maybe a combination of both. Unfortunately for me, I spent dozens of hours making uniforms, creating histories, and all kinds of things for that world only to have it blow up OOTP 15 for me multiple times. It was a sad day, but I finally decided I would retry once I buy a brand new, state-of-the-art gamer's laptop. That probably won't happen before the summer of '16, so in the meantime, here is a doable... Read more »
  • The Saga of Baseball
    The Origin of Baseball A number of theories posit that Abner Doubleday was not the true inventor of baseball, but the evidence weighs heavy against them. The vast majority of historical research points to Doubleday inventing the game in May of 1839 in Cooperstown, New York. Doubleday, soon to depart for West Point, set down the official rules to baseball with his boyhood friends. The group had long played stick and ball games, and the future Union general later said that the rules had served as a going away present. “The games of ball and stick were the predominant pastime...

Those differences include all fantasy players, as I actually prefer it that way and instead of there being the Oklahoma City Thunder, that team is back in Seattle, as the Sonics. Enter Dr Ben Steward. Dr Steward will be our GM character. He has just been hired by the Sonics... Read more »
