(Good) News Bears 2035.2: The Champs are Here

Post by usnspecialist » Sun May 20, 2018 9:38 am

In a move that can only be described as bad news for the rest of the league, the Havana Sugar Kings have left the “island paradise” for the sunny climate of the San Fernando Valley, California. From the day he bought the team, owner Dr. Emmitt Brown made no secret of his desire to move the franchise at first opportunity, and after scrupulously following league rules and waiting the minimum period, he has done so. When asked about the reasons for the move, Brown said “I have always dreamed of owning a professional sports franchise in my home state of California and after taking my trusty Delorean for a spin I have come to the realization that the San Fernando Valley is the best fit for us”. Additionally it is no secret that prior to this season (when it should be noted the Sugar Kings were one of the strongest teams in the league the entire season before ultimately winning the Landis Memorial Series), fan interest and attendance were among the lowest in the league.

Once the team made the decision to move the next item of business was to find a new name, as the Sugar Kings really made no sense in a place that has no connection to the sugar process. Again inspiration came from Doc Brown’s childhood, as he remembered hearing about a legendary team full of characters and misfits named the Bears. Given how the common feeling around the league is that despite all of their recent success, the Sugar Kings did it with pieces that didn’t seem to make sense, Doc felt this was the perfect name for his new franchise. As such, the San Fernando Bears were officially christened. Upon informing the league office of his plans, the team was told that due to expansion and the pending realignment, they would have to be moved to the Frick League in the newly named Pacific division. When informed of the decision, Brown said “while it is disappointing not to be able to defend our Johnson League title, I guess the league commissioner wanted to give himself an easier path to that title. We look forward to defending our Landis title through a different path”.

After settling on a location and a name, Doc Brown and got together with his full staff to come up with a ballpark that would not only prove to benefit the team on the field, but also be a draw for the local community and have some character. The design the staff settled on is not only inspired by the historic Polo Grounds, but is in fact a near replica. Upon building the stadium, the showed their commitment to the community by selling the naming rights to a local business, Chico’s Bail Bonds. The newly named Chico’s Bail Bonds Field will be located in the heart of the community, as the organization hopes they will be embraced in a way they never truly were in Havana, despite their recent success.

Technical Stuff:
I should have bonus cash maxed out as I had nearly $10.8 million to start the season and have an estimated balance of $57 million following the Landis (new file not available to check). With $20 million staying in game, that leaves $37 million to transfer over to bonus cash, of which I only have room for just under $30 million. If there are issues with my math on any of this please let me know.

Awesome. :)

Havana's Market size is BIG, so I don't think it qualifies for any criteria.

And, if you could put a post in the PPT spend forum with the tech details and a link, that would be great for tracking purposes.

Set up nicely for a rivalry with Valencia. "The Fight for The Five" or something like that.
