And now, the moment you've all been waiting for . . . the 2018 American Summer Football League LANDRY BOWL! (At the end of each quarter, I've included notes on what penalties occurred during particular plays. If I've made any errors with any of these notations, please feel free to let me know so I don't make the same mistake during the 2018 Landry Bowl. I do have a question about the major injuries that occurred during the game. According to the Head to Head play rules, when a major injury occurs, one random stat is reduced by 1 for the remainder of the season. So does this mean that since the Landry Bowl was the final game of the season that the injured players come back at full strength at the beginning of the 2019 season or do those injuries carry over until the end of the 2019 season? It's very confusing to me.)

COMING SOON--the 2019 season of the American Summer Football League. The following changes occurred during the off-season:
List item 1
The Charlotte Horsemen grew its fan base, expanding into the Raleigh, NC market. They earned $46,000,000 for the season after being rated the best in the league and best in the Eastern division.
List item 2
The Columbus Cardinals was rated the worst in the Eastern division, which shrunk their fan base and forced the team to move to Wheeling, WV, earning $1,000,000 for the season. They were allowed to keep the Cardinal team name.
List item 3
The Philadelphia Liberty grew its fan base, expanding into the Harrisburg, PA market, earning $12,000,000 for the season
List item 4
The Arizona Cactus was rated the worst in the Western Division, which shrunk their fan base and forced the team to move to Albuquerque, NM, earning $1,000,000 for the season. They were allowed to keep the Cactus team name.
List item 5
The Los Angeles Red Carpets grew its fan base, expanding into the Fresno, CA market. They earned $35,000,000 after being rated the best in the Western division and having the best winning record in the entire league.
List item 6
The Denver Boulders earned $8,000,000 for the season, but their fan base remained the same.
The American Summer Football League board of directors voted unanimously to expand the league from 6 teams to 8 teams, adding the Portland Roses (named after one of the city's nicknames "City of Roses") to the Western division and the Nashville Suns (named in honor of Sun Records in Nashville, TN) to the Eastern division.
Following a brief four-week training camp for all 8 teams, the following changes occurred:
Row 1 column 1
CHARLOTTE HORSEMEN - No changes to the team's stats. The major injuries suffered to the running back, the linebacker and the defensive back during the 2018 Landry Bowl were healed during the off-season, bringing the team to full strength.
WHEELING CARDINALS - No changes to the team's stats.
PHILADELPHIA LIBERTY - Running back's stats increased from 2 to 4.
ALBUQUERQUE CACTUS - The dominoes of bad luck continue to fall for the team, as they fell victim to bad training by the defensive coach. The defensive back's stats decreased from 4 to 3.
LOS ANGELES RED CARPETS - Quarterback's stats increased from 3 to 4. The major injury suffered to the running back during the 2018 Landry Bowl was healed during the off-season, bringing the team to full strength.

American Summer Football League (Pen and Paper Football tabletop football game fantasy league) 2019 regular season - Week 2 results. (In order to give myself time to fully play out the head to head play versions of the Eastern and Western Division championship games as well as the 2019 Landry Bowl, I've already simulated all of the games for the regular season and am currently in the middle of playing the head to head version of the Eastern Division championship game. I won't spoil who's playing in both division championship games. However, I will say that as of this writing, a penalty situation has come up with one of the teams. The offensive team is in the opponent's red zone. 1st and goal on the 18, they moved the ball 7 yards, no problem there. However, on 2nd and goal on the 11-yard line, they manage to move the ball 3 yards before receiving an offensive pass interference penalty, resulting in a loss of 15 yards and the loss of a down. Still being pretty much a novice in the rules of the game, I'm not exactly sure if that means that it's 3rd and 18 from the opponent's 26, or that it's the third down that was lost and it's now 4th and 18 from the 26.)

Beginning with Week #4, I'll no longer be referring to the 2019 American Summer Football League season as the "2019 season", rather it will be, and all future seasons, referred to as its season number. I felt that I was pigeon-holing myself by referring to the seasons by their game year, especially since in real-time we're just now getting the 2018 NFL regular season underway, and in my game time, I've already completed the "2019" Eastern and Western Division championship games and am ready to start on the "2019" Landry Bowl, and it's not even the end of September 2018. Therefore, in order to eliminate any confusion, either on the reader's part or mine, even though the PDFs for the weekly games still contain the 2019 season year in the documents, I'll be referring to them as "ASFL Season 2" games. The first reference of the "Season 2" label will be on the Landry Bowl itself since that's where I'm currently at in "game time".
