All the working and stuff is here
Season five started with neither Belt nor Baton having gone through the playoffs at the end of season four. The Sabercats win over the Otters had kept the Championship Belt in California, while the Legion were unable to overcome playoff bound Arizona. Opening day of season five saw a rematch of the last title game, as the Otters travelled to San Jose again, but fell just two points short of wresting the belt out of the Sabercats' jaws. Elsewhere, the Liberty travelled to The Coliseum, where the Legion gave them a bit of a scare, but ultimately could not force the Philadelphians to take the Baton home with them.
The following week, the Sabercats welcomed the other ASFC playoff team from season four, but this time, there was a plundering. The Outlaws were able to steal the belt in a 30-22 win, setting up an interesting showdown with the NSFC Champion Wraiths in week three. The Legion travelled to The Aviary, where they attempted to leave the Baton with the Hawks... it did not fly. A 38-27 win for the Hawks in what many called a questionable defensive performance from the former NSFC Champions was perhaps encouraging for the Nevada-based team in a way, though. However, facing the Otters and their even more dangerous aerial attack next week did not bode well for the Legion.
In week three, the Championship Belt returned to the NSFC, as Yellowknife buried the Outlaws in a 46-29 result in Canada, while the Otters manhandled the Legion 45-21 to make sure they kept possession of the Baton. Interestingly, both winners would face off in week four for the Championship Belt in Santa Ana Stadium, while the Legion would travel to another desert to try and pass the Baton... neither holder was successful. The Otters emerged 26-20 victors at home against the Wraiths, while the Legion were on the wrong end of an entertaining 52-33 result. Both Belt and Baton were now in the ASFC, at least for a week.
...or two, in fact. Week five saw the Hawks hosted the NSFL Champion (in both senses of the word) Otters, and couldn't overcome their fearsome defensive front seven, succumbing to a 14-33 defeat in the first of what looked like it might be a lengthy run of successful defences for the Orange County side. The Legion's woes continued with a relatively low-scoring defeat at home against the Yeti, in what most would have earmarked as most likely their best opportunity for a successful Baton pass.
Week six! The Otters travelled to Outlaw Stadium in Phoenix, and re-affirmed their status as the dominant force in the ASFC with a 31-24 win over the Outlaws, just in case anyone still questioned it at this point (we're looking at you, San Jose). Meanwhile, the Legion travelled north to the icy Northwestern Territories for a 33-16 spanking. No Baton pass today, then. Not that there's any shame in losing to the NSFC Champions on their turf, of course.
At the halfway point of the season, the Otters had racked up their fourth consecutive title defense with a solid 24-15 win over the Liberty at home, increasing the feeling that they would be maintaining a vice grip on the Belt for a while. Elsewhere, the Legion had ended a ten game streak of unsuccessful Baton passes with a convincing 37-19 win over the Sabercats in The Coliseum. The result -- a shock to most observers, it must be said -- set up a potential "switch game" in week eight, when the Otters would host the Sabercats in Santa Ana, with both Belt and Baton on the line. A Sabercats win would see Belt and Baton both change hands in the same game for only the second time in NSFL history.
...it was not to be. The Otters brutalised the Sabercats in a 49-9 blowout, extending their reign to five games, while condemning the Sabercats to another tough pass attempt the following week against the Outlaws. That didn't come off, either. The Outlaws put down a feisty Sabercats attempt in Outlaw Stadium to the tune of a 35-30 scoreline, while the Otters went to Colorado and rolled the Yeti over with a boulder, coming away with a 29-10 victory to extend their title reign to six games.
Week ten saw the Otters extend to seven games undefeated with an expected win over the Legion in Santa Ana, while the Sabercats welcomed a Yeti side which had looked reasonable defensively against the monstrous Otters attack the previous week. The Sabercats disabused any notion of a Yeti resurgence in a 24-20 win, condemning the Denver-based team to return home Baton in hand. Things didn't improve for the Yeti in week eleven either, as they put up a goose egg in reply to the Liberty's 34 points in Taco Bell Stadium. Meanwhile, the Wraiths welcomed the Otters to the frozen north, and the Belt was the price paid for save return home, after Yellowknife's impressive 34-14 victory.
As the season drew to a close, the Yeti welcomed the Legion to Colorado, in what many saw as their last realistic chance to pass the Baton before the end of the season -- their remaining games a trip to playoff-chasing Baltimore, and a visit from the reigning NSFC Champion Wraiths -- and they seized their opportunity with a 22-10 win, ridding themselves of the Baton before a long summer. Elsewhere the Sabercats went north, and... came home with the Championship Belt. Their 27-17 win over the Wraiths raising questions over the parity between conferences to many, seeing as the Sabercats were potentially going to be on the outside looking in come playoff time, despite possibly having beaten both
NSFC playoff teams (depending on whether the Hawks beat out the Liberty for the second playoff spot, and next week's results)
The penultimate week of season five saw the Liberty reclaim the Championship Belt for the NSFC however, as they absolutely slaughtered the Sabercats in a 49-14 result in Philadelphia. The playoff race in the NSFC was going to go to the wire, but this defeat meant the Sabercats were going to be sitting out the post-season, since they'd been swept by the Outlaws. The Baton game had far less important implications, as the Wraiths -- already favourites to win the NSFC at this point -- travelled to Las Vegas, and cemented their supremacy with a 31-17 win.
On the final day of the regular season, the Liberty hosted Orange County needing a win to have any shot at the playoffs, and perhaps more importantly, to keep hold of the Championship Belt. They pulled it off. A hard-fought 23-19 result over the Otters meant that the Liberty kept hold of the lineal NSFL Championship, but they would need to wait for the final say in Baltimore to know if they'd made the playoffs. Elsewhere, the Legion travelled to the HP Pavilion, where they had a shot at getting rid of the Baton before the agonising wait between seasons for a chance to pass it on again. Given the Sabercats erratic results in season five, and the knowledge that San Jose were likely not going to make the playoffs with Arizona holding the head-to-head tie-breaker over them, it wasn't entirely unfeasible that the Legion might get the upset they needed... however, the Sabercats perhaps took their frustrations out on the Las Vegas team with a 34-16 win to make sure the Baton stayed in Nevada. In Baltimore, the Hawks' convincing 41-27 win over the Outlaws meant that current NSFL Championship Belt holders the Philadelphia Liberty would not be taking part in the post-season, meaning the eventual NSFL champion Otters would have to wait until season six for a chance to get their hands on the Belt...

All the whining over the new NOLA team is silly, because you know, what's done is done, innit? I get why some people are bitching though. Some are bitching because it is in their nature to bitch. Some are bitching because "it sounds weird", which is probably code for "I don't like it and I don't know why" and others, rightfully, complain because there are soooo many better options out there.
I can understand this, as a creative genius.
But let's see what happens if we try to give every NSFL team and DSFL team a snappy slogan like the Baltimore Hawks' legendary "Caw Caw Motherfuckers". A slogan they can be proud of, and put on t-shirts and make hashtags out of and shit.Baltimore Hawks"Caw Caw Motherfuckers"
- I mean, come on. It's a timeless classic. Doesn't it just conjure up images of a pissed off bird staring at you with ominous vibes all around you? Like would you wanna mess with a pissed off hawk that just said to you, "caw caw motherfucker" ..? I didn't think so.Colorado Yeti"Freeze Freeze Motherfrosters"
- I'll freely admit this is not my best work. But like... y'all didn't really give me much to work with here. It's not that it's a bad brand, it's just not really something that lends itself well to slogans. I mean, what noise would a Yeti make if it were a real thing? I'm imagining some weird ass Chewbacca shit. And how the fuck I'm supposed to write that?Philadelphia Liberty"Ding Dong Motherfathers"
- This one practically wrote itself. I had to resist the urge to go with something that matches up with the genius that is Failadelphia, because that's slightly harsh on the Liberty. I mean, they have shit cornerbacks but that's not their fault. None of them are S1, so it's expected that they would have less TPE. But I digress. Their logo is a bell, specifically some kind of significant bell to Americans or some shit, I don't know. Anyway, bells go ding dong. Motherfather is because ding dong isn't badass enough to have a motherfucker. Yeah I said it.Yellowknife Wraiths"Feel the terror, motherdeaders"
- As much as I think "Spooky Ghosts" and "3Spoopy5Me" are brilliant, neither fits the theme. I like themes. So I remixed that shit. I like remixes too. When they aren't shit. Good for filling out mixtapes with additional fire. Anywho, feel the terror is pretty fuckin self explanatory, I won't patronise you with that. Motherdeaders I don't really know, but it sounded funny. Also dead, ghosts, etc. You get the idea.Arizona Outlaws"Pew Pew Motherheckers"
- Let's be real, they're not actually outlaws. More like kids pretending to be bad guys. I imagine the Outlaws actually run around with finger guns going "pew pew" at people. Rumour has it, this is the real reason Noah Goodson left. They were so motherheckin dangerous, and he's a good son. It's right there in his name! Oh and obviously motherheckers because come on. They're not gonna swear in front of mom.San Jose Sabercats"Rawr Rawr Motherkitties"
- Confession time, I actually think the Sabercats have probably the best branding in the league(s). Some serious Sword of Omens vibes off that shit. However... these cats have NOT grown up yet. They regularly take down the hawks, sure... but that's kinda what felines do, ya dig? I believe it is time for them to grow out of that annoying kid Lion-O shit and start slapping them big ol' Panther balls on motherfuckers this year. But until then, y'all still kitties. Fite me.Orange County Otters"Win Win Motherwinners"
- I like to think this one's pretty fuckin' clear. Could switch it up with Mothervictors instead I guess. Sounds less flow-y though. flow is important. Ask Biggie.New Orleans Second Line"Toot toot motherfuckers"
- Now I know what you're thinking... why do they get to say "motherfucker" ..? Listen, the LegionLine have been fucked so hard in the four and a bit years since coming into existence, I personally think they can say whatever the fuck they want. Toot toot is quite obviously a musical reference. Hit 'em with the onomatopoeia and shit. Vocabulary, suckas.
On to the DSFLPortland Pythons"Hiss Hiss Motherslithers"
- Probably my favourite DSFL team to be honest. You can't really do much else with sneks, though. They hiss, innit? And slither. Though to be fair, motherfuckers would be fine here. The Pythons are badass enough to use the term, really.Kansas City Coyotes"Howl Howl Motherwolfers"
- I know they're not actually wolves, but Coyotes totally howl... like wolves. Also, not badass enough to earn the right to say motherfuckers. I don't make the rules, that was Samuel L Jackson's verdict. I don't question the Jackson, don't question the L, KC. Just accept that shit, lick your wounds, and try again in season six.Tijuana LuchadoresTiro Tiro Hijos de puta
- Is it racist to give the Mexican team a spanish slogan, or just common sense? Your homework for today: translate that shit and learn something, pendejos. I'm assuming you know what a luchador is.San Antonio Marshals"Pew Pew Motherperpers"
- These guys are basically the good guy equivalent of the Outlaws. Let's be real. Perps are perpetrators... criminals... geddit?
And I'm not making slogans for bot teams. FOH with that shit.
* * * * *
Okay so we slogan'd up. I'm not really feeling the way that went though. Some teams just don't have enough mojo to really make a snappy slogan. So I'm gonna rebrand every team as a pokemon.
If you don't like pokemon go fuck yourself. Also, I'm not gonna do the DSFL teams. Mainly because I don't wanna change the Luchadores or Pythons branding. Shit's cool. I suppose KC could become the Lycanroc because wolf, and the Marshals could become the Arcanines though. Officer Jenny has an Arcanine, so that fits nicely. But yeah, DSFL turnover is high enough that it's kinda hard to make poke-related identifications of the teams at this point. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
And I'm not making new brands for bot teams. FOH with that shit.Baltimore Hawlucha
The current Hawks are a scrappy team, in many ways. And like Hawlucha, they excel at a high paced offensive game (Hawlucha's top two stats are speed and attack), while looking a little fragile at times defensively (Hawlucha's lowest stat is special defense). Also, while their last rebrand didn't quite go as well as they'd hoped with the fans, the Hawks are generally a loyal bunch. When was the last time you saw a player express a desire to leave in free agency? For me, a kickass new identity -- ironically hidden under a mask, ha! -- which represents the team's style of play, but has clear ties to the old identity is the best way forward.Colorado Abomasnow
I feel like the Yeti are kinda wedded to this whole sasquatch shit. So I rolled with it too. Abomasnow, like the Yeti, isn't exactly the fastest out the gates. It's taking the Yeti a while to rebuild after the devastation that followed the Saskatoon Scandal [is that a thing? it should be... - Ed.], but otherwise, they're actually a reasonably well-balanced team. Not like, playoff quality balanced, but balanced. QB issues aside, obvs. But we can gloss over that because underdog story, etc etc. I mean, Pierno is a walking cautionary tale at this point, but it's hard not to want the kid to stop sucking so damn hard.Yellowknife Marshadow
Okay so Marshadow looks really strong on paper, and it might well actually be strong. Which is kinda like the Wraiths. They consistently look good. On paper. Then they somehow flatter to deceive. Who knows what the real Marshadow is gonna be like? Who knows what the Wraiths will be like? It's a fun little mystery game the entire league gets to play, every damn season. I mean, it's implied that Marshadow, like the Wraiths, will indeed be pretty damn strong. But you just can't be too sure. It's also worth pointing out that Marshadow is entirely immune to normal and fighting types, but one of its few weaknesses is to flying types. Which is kinda like how the Wraiths split things with the
Hawluchas last season. *Twilight Zone Music*Philadelphia Weepinbell
I was gonna give them Victreebel but I'm going for accuracy here, guys. I mean, no disrepect to the Liberty but come on, they're yet to win a playoff game. Even the Bengals have won a handful. And let's be real, none of us would describe the Bengals as "winners" ... not even Bengals fans [like me - Ed.] So yeah. Philadelphia Weepinbell, because at the moment it's hard to see them leapfrogging the Hawluchas and Marshadow this season. Let it be known, though, that I acknowledge that "this isn't even their final form". I'm just saying.Arizona Lucario
It was tempting to give Arizona something of the "dark" type ("evil", in Japanese, FYI), and I was leaning toward Mightyena because it's a doggo, and the Outlaws heckin' bamboozled the entire league. But that's not fair. It wasn't the Outlaws that heckin' bamboozled us all, it was Er, so only like... half the Outlaws. Anyway I settled on Lucario because dude is a fighting type and wears a domino mask like an outlaw in some of those classic films. Just kinda looks like he might be a bad guy, but might not be. It's also worth noting that Lucario is weak to fighting types, like Hawlucha, and the notorious Outlaw Killer is indeed a Hawlucha.San Jose Luxio
You know how I said the Saberkittens was basically on some Thundercats shit? Well, Luxio is literally a god-damn thunder cat. A pissed off thunder cat, to be precise. Sound familiar? [it also evolves into my favourite pokemon. Hint hint. - Ed.] Now before you start mewling over this decision, just remember I could have said San Jose Shinx, and really taken the piss. I'm trying to give you guys some props here. Like I said before, San Jose are like... right on the edge of doing good things, I think. You'll also note that while Luxio doesn't really have much advantage over say... Lucario -- though it does have some resistant to steel type moves -- it excels against flying types. Like Hawlucha. Peep the recent results, you'll get the reference.New Orleans Smoochum
Why Smoochum? Okay so Smoochum is pretty weak, if I'm honest... but it also evolves into Jynx. The blackest pokemon [Also hella racist, but whatever - Ed.]. Let's not pretend Nawlins isn't hella black. I mean come on. NOLA have got to be the blackest team in the league. That's not all! Smoochum, being Ice type (lol wait, the black pokemon is ice type? Nintendo some funny motherfuckers) has a lot of weaknesses... much like the NOLA do right now. Jynx also has weaknesses, admittedly, but is also significantly
stronger than Smoochum. While Ice is a terrible defensive type, it's actually one of the most effective attacking types, which is perhaps where NOLA are heading in future seasons. Borkus Maximus looks like a bonafide (geddit?) offensive leader, who could sling NOLA out of the basement in the ASFC given time. Orange County Hydreigon
Okay so I almost went Floatzel because it's a literal fucking otter. It's called "the sea weasel pokemon" for fucks sake. It's also a lot stronger than it's goofy ass appearance would have you believe... however, Hydreigon fits better. Everyone knows Orange County are fucking strong, nobody is fooled by the cutesy little mascot and colour scheme. We all know. And you look at Hydreigon and you know
you about to get fucked up. OC also have literal three headed monsters on both sides of the field. Hydreigon has three heads. Get where I'm going with this?

Noticed a fair few people mentioned something to automate player creation/updates in the Changes PT so I basically just nicked most of the code from the SHL player builder that Bojo made, and adjusted it for NSFL. I had to build in each archetype's base stats, otherwise it would be inaccurate, so someone will need to nudge me if we change archetype base stats in future (or add new ones etc).
Anyway, I've put it online here
Let me know if you notice any problems.

Back to Earth-616 for the fourth and final chapter of our Alternate Reality journey with Alt1. Having just signed an extension in 2027 that would likely see him through to retirement, Alt1 picks up where he left off in New York.
Leading the Towers to a 9-7 record with 1,403 yards and 13 touchdowns, Delacour once again made the Pro Bowl, but the New York team missed out on the playoffs on a tiebreaker. Edging them by one more in-conference win, Tampa Bay went on to face Detroit instead.
Heartache aside, it was a record-breaking year for Alt1. He moved up to fourth in the league's all-time career receiving yards leaderboard -- with nobody ahead of him still active -- and took the top spot in the career receiving touchdowns leaderboard with 120.
During the offseason, rumours of a trade surfaced, with the previous season's losing Super Bowl team -- Jacksonville -- seeing their Super Bowl window closing. As a result, they were looking for a marquee receiver to help their leading wideout Edmund Kelly and put them over the top. But what could they possibly offer New York for a former number one draft pick and four-time Pro Bowler seemingly in the peak of his career?
Negotiations dragged on for weeks, and ultimately soured. New York press reported a "derisory" final offer from Jacksonville for the star wideout, while Jacksonville press reported "unreasonable demands for a thirty-four year old". Preseason began with Alt1 staying in New York, and picking up a cheekbone fracture at Oakland that rendered him doubtful going into the last game before the season proper began. Against Jacksonville. Alt1 sat the game out while the Towers picked up the win, but the real showdown was a week later, when the two teams faced off in Florida to open the season.
Alt1 was back in action, and led the Towers in receiving with 107 yards from 6 catches. Jacksonville dominated the score, however, sending the Towers back to New York on the wrong end of a 20-3 defeat. Predictably, this did not help the trade negotiations. New York maintained that this proved Delacour's quality, while Jacksonville pointed to the injury trouble leading up to the game and that he had three crucial drops -- two of which would have extended drives and put the Towers in field goal range. While the latter point could not be argued, Alt1 was approaching his seventieth straight start, which certainly brought the durability issue into question.
As if to underline his quality, Alt1 picked up 126 yards and two touchdowns against Carolina, re-opening the trade debate. Then, in an attempt to remain impartial, no doubt, he played a shocker against Dallas, picking up just two receptions for 19 yards. Jacksonville wouldn't budge on their valuation of Delacour, and neither would New York. It had reached a point where the only way the trade was going to take place, was if Delacour himself forced it through. "We don't think he wants to leave. If he did, he'd have come out and said it by now." Said Towers Head Coach Andre Dixon. "If he came to me and said he wanted to go, I wouldn't stand in his way. But I like to think he's staying here." Dixon was right. Delacour committed to New York, picking up another two touchdowns ahead of bye week. The trade deadline passed, and Alt1 was still wearing blue.
After the bye, however, came a three game skid for the Towers, and a disappointing return of under 150 yards and a single touchdown for Alt1. Newspapers changed their tune quickly, and it suddenly looked like both Alt1 and the Towers had missed a trick. Despite all the criticism, Alt1 still finished with 1,103 yards and 14 touchdowns (the Towers' leading receiver) but the Towers would watch the playoffs from home. Again.
He'd deny it in the off-season, but seeing Jacksonville reach the Conference Championship round while his Towers narrowly missed the post-season for a third consecutive year must have stung. He didn't even get the consolation of the Pro Bowl, instead losing out to his would-be teammate in Jacksonville, Edmund Kelly.
Going into the 2030 season, Alt1 was approaching his 35th birthday, and perhaps this was a step too far. Having seen his trademark speed, and overall production decline the previous year, as well as possibly missing out on his best chance at a Super Bowl ring, Delacour decided to call it a day.
After being drafted number one overall and spending thirteen seasons as a pro, in Miami and New York, Antoine Delacour closed out his career with over fifteen thousand receiving yards. In addition, he was named player of the game twenty-nine times, and played in four consecutive Pro Bowls -- all after his thirtieth birthday -- setting numerous records. Most notably, longest catch (97 yards) and most career receiving touchdowns (134).
Dec 21 2017, 03:05 PM
Aaaaaand we're back on Earth-616 with our hero, Alt1. Last chapter, we left Alt1 facing free agency, after his rookie contract expired without extension in Miami.
After a protracted free agency -- in which Delacour was shown little interest; teams were reluctant to commit to signing him due to those lingering injury concerns -- Alt1 finally put pen to paper on a two year deal in New York, ostensibly to replace Odell Beckham Jr.
Things started brilliantly for Alt1 with the Towers (the New York Giants proxy in NSFL '19) as he set a franchise record in his first competitive game for his new team. Three touchdowns at home against Philadelphia on opening week in the 2023 season had the media questioning the wisdom of letting him walk, and fans falling swiftly in love with their new star wideout. The following week, an offensive player of the game award added to the love-in.
Concerns resurfaced in week four, when Alt1 was listed as questionable with a stiff neck, but ultimately suited up and put in another solid performance. Later that year, Delacour would set two more franchise records; longest catch (72 yards) in week eight, and receiving yards (138) in week nine. The former of these would also be a personal best. The season would end with the Towers narrowly missing the playoffs, but the change of scenery seemed to have a rejuvenating effect on his career, seeing his productivity approach his career best again (1,157 yards on the season). As the second and final year of his contract began, Delacour knew he needed another strong year to guarantee employment beyond 2024.
As it turned out, Fortuna did not smile upon the Lafayette native. Twice he would miss time in 2024 due to injury, and ended up playing just ten games that season, as New York huffed and puffed their way to a 9-7 record, and a wildcard playoff berth. They went 1-5 without their lightning quick receiver, who returned in time to play a pivotal role in their final game of the regular season -- 113 yards, a touchdown and offensive player of the game in the win that clinched playoffs for New York -- which perhaps underlined how important he was to the team's efforts. This was only the second playoff appearance of Delacour's career to date, and started well, as he picked up another offensive player of the game award in the 24-23 wildcard win over Detroit. Sadly, New York would lose in the divisional round -- still Alt1's best progress -- to Arizona, but this seemed to be enough to convince the front office to extend him.
The off-season before the 2025 season saw Alt1 contact some specialists and switch up his training to try and alleviate the fears regarding recurring injury. He would show up to pre-season looking sharper than ever before, despite entering his thirties. In the first five weeks of the season, Delacour racked up four touchdowns and an average of over 100 yards per game. He was rewarded with four offensive player of the game awards in this time, and media outlets went nuts. "Delacour finally realising his potential", "Maybe Delacour isn't a bust after all", and "Delacour an early front-runner for offensive player of the year" were all headlines seen before Thanksgiving in 2025.
Two more offensive player of the game awards would come that season, as well as several records. A 39 yard kickoff return, 130 receiving yards, a 71 yard reception; all franchise playoff records. 65 receptions, 15 touchdowns, 1,449 yards on the season, longest catch of 79 yards; all personal bests. The last two being franchise records, too. Despite his excellent performance in the playoffs, the Towers got absolutely shredded by Atlanta. The only consolation for Alt1 following the 52-27 blowout was being named to his first pro bowl.
This improvement continued into 2026, where Delacour set another personal best in terms of production, picking up 1,576 yards on the season from 75 receptions (two personal records). The Towers went one and done in the playoffs again -- this time falling 23-20 to Minnesota despite Alt1's 125 yard, 1 TD game. Another pro bowl appearance followed, though. Notably, Delacour didn't miss a game for the second consecutive season -- though there was a scare as he left the wildcard game early with blurred vision -- putting paid to the injury concerns that had plagued his career to this point.
2027 was another contract year for Alt1, so he needed to maintain his lofty level of performance -- despite many suggesting he'd be sliding into age-related decline at this point -- and he did not disappoint.No more records set, but three offensive player of the game awards, alongside his 1,461 receiving yards (on 64 catches) earned him another pro bowl spot. The Towers missed the playoffs, but couldn't afford to lose their leading receiver, locking him up for three more years; meaning it's likely Alt1 will be remaining in New York for the rest of his career.
In the fourth and final chapter, we'll see out the end of Alt1's career, and see if he can win a ring, or reach the Hall of Fame.
