About X League 2022

An all new start for the Legends Football League (also known as the Lingerie Football League) in 2022 as a rebrand to the X League and eight new teams sees an eight-week schedule with one game per week (for a total of two games per team) before the top four reach the playoffs and the X Cup 2022. The X League is a rival league to the Women’s National Football Conference, the NFL of Women’s Football, which plays for the IX Cup. The big differences are that the X League is 7v7 Arena Indoor Football versus the WNFC’s standard 11v11 Outdoor American Football, and the lack of protective clothing or knee pads that the X League players wear, although the 2022 edition of this Alternative League sees the gimmick of women wearing little in the way of clothing covered up another little bit more. It is also positioning itself almost entirely in the Western USA, whereas the other AAA Alternative League to the NFL/WNFC in 2022, the USFL is based almost entirely in the Eastern USA.

Recap

The American Football Verband Deutschland (AFVD) German Bundesliga 1 1992 German Bowl was won by Düsseldorf Panther, the oldest continually-operating American Football team in both Germany and Europe (founded 1978 – Reference: 8). The Panther were 1983, 1984 and 1986 Champions and their opponents in the German Bowl XIV were Munich Cowboys, founded 1979, who were appearing in their first ever Final having gone 14-0 during the regular season and defeated Monheim Sharks and Cologne Crocodiles in the Playoffs. Düsseldorf Panther had eliminated Bad Homburg Falken and North Conference Champions Berlin Adler in the playoffs. Also qualifying for postseason were Noris Rams and Regensburg Royals. Cologne Bears, Stuttgart Scorpions and Darmstadt Diamonds were all relegated to the GBL 2 North and South, and were replaced by Hamburg Silver Eagles, Solingen Hurricanes, Hanau Hawks and Rothenburg Knights bringing the total number of teams in the GBL 1 for 1993 up to 16. [References: 1-3]

In 1993, Munich Cowboys finally won that first German Bowl, defeating Cologne Crocodiles 42-36 in overtime after a 13-0-1 season, again undefeated, but with one tie that year. The Cowboys had beaten Hamburg Silver Eagles and Berlin Adler on their way to the Championship Game, while Northern Conference Champions Cologne had eliminated Noris Rams and Düsseldorf Panther. Other playoff qualifiers in 1993 were Hanau Hawks and Rothenburg Knights. After the season Monheim Sharks, Dortmund Giants, Badener Greifs and Bad Homburg Falken were all demoted to their respective GBL 2 League and were replaced by Braunschweig Lions, who would go on to become one of the most successful of all German American Football Teams, winning eleven German Bowls by 2018. Also promoted from GBL 2 South were Erding Bulls and Allgäu Comets while Kempten Comets disbanded, leaving the GBL 1 at 14 teams for 1994. [References: 4-5]

The 1994 season featured Inter-locking schedules between the GBL 1 North and GBL 1 South, with each team playing two Inter-Conference games in total versus teams from the opposite Conference. Düsseldorf Panther regained the German Bowl they won in 1992, triumphing 27-17 in the Championship Game versus Northern Conference Champions Berlin Adler. The Panther had eliminated Noris Rams and defending Champions Munich Cowboys in the playoffs while Berlin Adler had defeated Regensburg Royals and Cologne Crocodiles on their way to the Bowl. Also appearing in the playoffs in 1994 were Southern Conference Champions Hanau Hawks, surprisingly eliminated in the Quarter-Finals by Cologne and also Braunschweig Lions. Relegated at the end of the year were Allgäu Comets who struggled in their first year in the top flight and disbanded after nine games, and Solingen Hurricanes. [References: 6-7]

To give the relative strength of Ireland’s National team, the Leprechauns at this time, the following November (3rd November 1995), played Hanau Hawks, who had won the GBL 1 South Championship on a 12-2 record, and lost by only a 6-19 scoreline. [References: 9-10]

Recap

Louisiana Swashbucklers failed at the final hurdle for the second straight year in their quest to add a fourth Championship Title in team history. Albany Panthers won 69-48 before an attendance of 7,843 in Albany [References: 3]. Albany were 24-27 behind at halftime but successfully contained the Bucs offense for the duration of the second half, outscoring their opponents 41-13 in the second period [References: 3].

It was Louisiana’s fifth straight appearance in a title game [References: 3]. The first two appearances were in the Intense Football League in 2007 and 2008 which they won [References: 3]. They then appeared in both the 2009 and 2010 Southern Indoor Football League Championship games, winning the SIFL title in 2009 [Reference: 3], but losing 13-68 to Columbus Lions in the 2010 Championship Game. [References: 2]

It was Albany’s first appearance in a Championship Game and they won by defeating both the 2009 SIFL Champions (Columbus Lions) and 2009 SIFL Champions (Louisiana Swashbucklers) in the Playoffs. [References: 2-3]

Week 7 Recap (23-24 April 2022)

Green Bay Blizzard’s Jack Sheehan, surely an Irish connection there somewhere, scored the team’s opening touchdown on an 11-yard run, and passed for another in the first quarter, with Keyshaun Taylor catching two TD’s in the second quarter and Toren Young running in a fifth as the Blizzard went into the break 34-0 up at halftime only to see Vegas Knight Hawks pull back to 34-25 in the second half before the buzzer sounded.

[References: 16-21]

Week 8 Recap (29 April-1 May 2022)

Massachusetts Pirates dropped their second game of the season 44-46 to Vegas Knight Hawks to fall to 4-2 as they just failed to take advantage of Frisco Fighters 35-49 loss to Arizona Rattlers as the Fighters fell to 5-2. The two results meant the Eastern Conference title race was blown wide open with Quad Cities Steamwheelers from Illinois defeating Green Bay Blizzard from Wisconsin 49-31 and Sioux Falls Storm from South Dakota winning 50-47 versus Iowa Barnstormers. With both the Steamwheelers and Storm improving to 4-3 and the Barnstormers on 3-3 there was no more than one loss between the top five teams in the East. [References: 1-16]

In the Western Conference Arizona Rattlers continue to march on, going to 6-0 with that victory over Eastern Conference leaders Frisco Fighters. Northern Arizona Wranglers (4-2) made it an Arizona 1-2 with a 65-34 defeat of Bay Area Panthers (1-6) while Tucson Sugar Skulls 42-41 win over Duke City Gladiators (2-5) from Albuquerque in New Mexico meant it was 1-2-3 for Arizona. San Diego Strike Force moved above the Gladiators with a 38-28 victory over North Dakota’s Bismarck Bucks (3-4) in an Inter-Conference match-up. With Vegas (3-4) winning against Massachusetts Pirates it was a good weekend for Western Conference teams, winning the Inter-Conference match-ups three to nothing. [References: 1-16]
