Dallas Americans Website Is Up

http://www.dallasamericans.com/

Not a bad looking site, looks like the Gladiators one.

And might I add, what a corny logo.

As a site goes up, the league goes down.

Besides that, its a nice site. Alot nicer than some of the NHL teams'. And its nice to ressurect the Reunion Arena!

Just one question though, why are they "America's Team"? Did the WHA decied to pick at random out of a hat the team that will represent the USA?

I wonder if i'm the first person to see that site? Haha

I went to the Gladiators site and got bored and typed in the team names and it worked.

Still no site for Ice Breakers, Blazers or any of the other teams.

Trying pull a little bit out of the Dallas Cowboys' playbook, since they have also been known as "America's Team" (So have the Atlanta Braves, at least by TBS).

For those who might be interested, that site has been up for about a week or two.

For some reason they don't list a roster ... :lol

If they are going tostart in late October, what are they fielding as a team? Cheerleaders? Mascots? Ice Mice? :lol

That's the perpetual problem with the WHA. They don't sign anyone. They just sit around twiddling their thumbs all day long. That's the only logical explanation why this league hasn't signed any players yet.

An accurate reflection of the main WHA site... no actual info.

They used the same code as the Detroit site, they were even sloppy about it, hitting home on the Dallas site takes you to the Detroit site....

It's kind of a clue your league sucks when your commissioner doesn't wear a tie for a logo unveiling ceremony. And looks drunk.

MS is online now

I signed up for the emails. Maybe it was a fan club, I don't know. I just know I haven't got any info yet.
