RENO/LA TEAM MOVE TO GRAND RAPIDS

The Reno Express franchise was left ownerless and temporarily moved to Los Angeles as part of a marketing sale and flip. After an 0-3 start, the LA owners saw no takers and they looked to quickly shed themselves of the daily management and overhead of managing the team.

In comes the new owner, Mike P. Mike took taken over by a new owner with many years of SIERRA FBPRO experience, moving them to Grand Rapids, Michigan to a smaller market and future competitor to the other local teams in the FIFL.

The Rampage have already made 4 moves ahead of week 4 and mean busines, getting the former Gold Cup Champions back into competition after two straight sub-.500 seasons.

Please welcome Mike and the new ownership. Game-On Tomorrow.

NEED SOME HELP WITH TEAM PROFILES????

Since you all don't have the game, and perhaps need some help with what a Dallas Offensive Profile does, or a Bears Defensive Profile really does, I have supplied some examples of what would happen if I ran the NFL teams and what the numbers would be.

Basically, ran 3 seasons using the NFL96 teams... runs 1 and 2 had no injury's set, while run 3 did. Also, season 3, I updated the recordbook on a weekly basis.Use these tools to your advantage. CLICK HERE to view.
