Hypothetical Fantasy Football NCAA-Style Conference Alignment for all American Football Ireland Teams Ever 2021

Notes

(1) The “Northern Ireland Championship” features the Seven Pre-Irish American Football League of 1986 teams that were based in Ireland: five “European Theater of Operations” ETO Football Championship teams based in Northern Ireland during WWII and the two teams of specially-trained Rugby Players who played a Festival match at Banbridge RFC in 1983.

(2) The Irish Conference includes six Republic of Ireland teams who were scheduled to play in the Irish American Football League in 1990, but never did – in the end only five Northern Ireland teams started the season, with Dublin Celts playing in the British 2nd Division. At least one Preseason Friendly was played among these teams: Bray Seahawks v Dublin Tornadoes, and Lee Valley Steelers (Cork) and Limerick Patriots were to play in the League in 1992 and 1993. Dublin Pirates collapsed at the end of the season and a failed attempt was made to bring them back in 1992. Nothing else is known about the Waterford and Galway franchises, not even their name, and also the team in Athy mentioned as “already playing” in Lindie Naughton’s Minority Sports Column in the Evening Herald in 1993.

(3) The Northern Ireland Junior American League includes not just teams which played Junior Football only (City Colts, Ballymena Wolfhounds, Prospect Pumas and Brownlow Bandit, but also those who played Two-Touch only – a form of Contact Football without pads and helmets – all players could be tackled except the ball carrier who could only be tackled by placing two hands on him or her. TheseTwo-Touch Only teams are: Lisburn Groundhogs, Maiden City Maulers and Peel Crusaders (Isle of Man).

(4) DV8 Development League includes 8v8 Development League-only teams, who never played full 11v11 Tackle Football.

(5) A separate Belfast Knights and Carrickfergus Knights have been created for the purposes of this hypothetitcal “Madden” / “Fantasy Football” League for the two Eras of the Knights history.

(6) Galway Sea Devils and Dundalk IT Razorbacks, while both never played in the League, were full members (*)

Championship Game Recap

James Connally, who has the same name as Irish Patriot Leader James Connolly, starred for Juneau Huskies, who play at Adair Kennedy Field, another name associated with great Irish Leaders, in the Alaska Schools Activities Association High School Football First National Bowl Series Division I Championship Game in 2021, scoring two reception Touchdowns, however, ended up on the losing team as East Anchorage Thunderbirds won 30-17. The other five Juneau points came from the boot of Adams – one Field Goal and two Point After Touchdown conversions.

About the All American Football League 2008

The All American Football League was headquartered in Atlanta. Georgia and intended to start play in 2008 as a compliment to both the National Football League (NFL) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), playing by NCAA rules. It had six teams located in Major Stadiums, mostly in the South of the United States of America (Houston, Little Rock, Knoxville, Gainesville, Birmingham) with one team in the Midwest (Detroit, Michigan). Teams were named after the State they were located in but had no nicknames, instead being known as Team Alabama, Team Arkansas, Team Florida, Team Michigan, Team Tennessee and Team Texas.

The draft went ahead on January 26th 2008 as planned, with the opening game scheduled for April 2008, but on March 13th, 2008 the League gave a press release announcing the postponement of the start date until 2009. The arrival of the United Football League which played from 2009 to 2011 may have been the factor which ended the All American Football League before it started, as the AAFL never got off the ground.

Recap

The Oslo Vikings were deserving Champions of the Norwegian American Football Federation’s 1st Division title in 2000 having won all six games handsomely and then triumphing 68-20 over Eidsvoll 1814s in the National Championship. The Vikings had received a walkover from Trondheim’s Nidaros Domers in the Semi-Finals while Eidsvoll 1814s despatched 2nd Division Champions Sandnes Oilers 62-0 in the other Semi-Final. V IF Trolls were the fourth team in the 1st Division, which like Nidaros had finished 1-5. Eidsvoll had finished 4-2. Oslo Vikings also took part in the Euroleague North alongside Stockholm Mean Machine (Sweden) and Aarhus Tigers (Denmark) in 2000.

About NoAFF 1st Division

The Norwegian American Football Federation’s 1st Division was the top level of American Football in Norway in 2000, featuring four teams. The teams were the same four teams as in 1999 and were to be the same four teams as in 2001, as there was no automatic promotion and relegation in place at the time.

About LEXFA

LEXFA – Lega Extrema de Football Americano – is the biggest Arena / Indoor Football League in the World. It comprises four to five divisions of Arena Indoor Football teams in Mexico, with the Divisions based on level of play as in Soccer rather than Geographical as in American and Canadian Football.

Arena, also known as Indoor Football is an 8v8 version of American Football played in converted Ice Hockey rinks or other Arenas with a 50 yard field and two 8 yard endzones. Instead of having 4 downs (attempts) to reach 10 yards or the ball is turned over, Arena Indoor Football employs a five downs to score system of play, with three of those downs having to be passing plays.

ABOUT RUSSIAN AMERICAN FOOTBALL AND THE Astrakhan Junior Tournament

The Federation of American Football of Russia was formed in 1992, just immediately after the the end of the USSR and Communism. After that one season, the League took a long break, returning in 2002 after five seasons of a Commonwealth of Independent States League, six of a Moscow Federation of American Football Junior League and five years of Tournaments. The Astrakhan Junior Tournament was for players aged 14-16 and took place in Autumn, halfway through the regular season (The Junior Regular Season was split with half the year taking place before Christmas in Autumn and half after New Years Day in Spring).
