Thanks for putting this list together, Milford/Painstate. Would it be too much trouble to ask for a list with just the 25 team neams in it, ranked in acending/descending order as you prefer, for quick reference? Posted in this thread, of course.

Being a bit of a noob can I ask - are the Majors just in R or B or both? I would imagine (I haven't really bothered trying) it's quite tough to get a team ready for a major in Ranked, especially if it's CLAWPOMB tastic...

Yeah Great post really really made me all nostalgic being reminded of all the majors awsomness. I Think that even purplegoo with all his bottled up anger towards majors would shed a tear of joy!


How strange I pop into a thread on a quick visit, only to be invoked. Wink

There's nothing bottled up nor angry about it. Nonetheless; that team coming 'top' sums up such events perfectly, doesn't it? I couldn't make the point any better myself (not that I'm the only one, by any stretch).

I'm glad people are having a great time, and I hope it continues. That's the important thing.

This list is really deep down a history lesson for all the coaches on FUMBBL. (...)

I have always maintained one golden rule when discussing majors. never focus on the coach but rather focus on the team. Keeping the focus on the team generates a feeling of history and makes this fantasy game feel more real. An epic throw down of legendary teams on the biggest stage in a major. Putting focus on the coach seems to make it appear this is all about them, so to speak. The coach will get his props if his team is successful.


That is insightful and extraordinary. Thank you!

Does anyone think this write up should go into the Help section. A "History" sub-section?

Plus a few more famous teams.

Maybe there should be a vote for the Top 100. Wink

Thanks a lot Milford, a true pleasure! I thought I would know most of the teams on a 25-list, but heck I have only been here since 2006 and I sure didnt start with majors directly ;-D

As another latecomer to the site, this is an excellent thread, good work. Now I just wish we could replay these old games. Surprisingly, my record against the teams is perfect. But at 1/0/0, that's not such an achievement. Against the coaches: played 8 of them, total 2/2/13. I'm glad you focus on the teams, not the coaches...
