Austin Still on Top, Upsets Cause Mass Scramble

So it seems that I included a Game of Thrones spoiler in my first poll recap of the season last week.  Of course, I was under the impression that it was common knowledge, much like the fact that the Austin Crows were going to be the unanimous #1 ranked team to begin 2016.

For that, I apologize, and I’ll try not to do it again.

Lady Magpies, Demons, Jills Head North of the Border

The opening chapter of the story that was New York Lady Magpies’ 2015 season was written on a muddy, rough patch of field in downtown Montreal nearly 365 days ago.

On that day, the Lady ‘Pies brought their brooms with them, and they swept aside four tough Canadian club sides to become the first American team to win the AFL Quebec Women’s tournament.  It was the first indication of a season that would turn out to the best in club history.

Revos to Host Three Summer Camps

It’s every athlete’s dream to represent their country at their sport’s highest level.

A great number of hopefuls have put their hand up for spots on the USA Revolution national team ahead of the AFL International Cup next year in Melbourne.  Coach Tom Ellis and his staff have the task of whittling down that group down to form the team that will go in search of the world footballing title.

Austin Begins 2016 on Top of First Poll

This has been a week of unsurprising revelations.

Jon Snow came back to life, Ted Cruz proved to be the most awkward man in America, and the Austin Crows were voted as the #1 team in the country in the first USAFL Top 20 Poll.

Our panelists had little hesitation about this decision, as the Crows swept all nine first place votes to attain a perfect score of 180 points.  The same occurred in the first poll last year, when the New York Magpies accrued the same score months after lifting their second John Harrell Cup in their own right.

USAFL Top 20 Poll Returns for 2016

After a successful inaugural season, the USAFL Top 20 poll returns in 2016, beginning with the first set of rankings to be released on May 4th.

The poll is used by the league as a system to rank the teams by performance, as all 34 clubs play different schedules and opponents.  Different factors such as opponent strength, travel, and other factors are taken into account by the panelists.
