Defunct FAUX Franchises

FAUX football currently consists of 14 teams, only one team has less than 6 years experience in the league. In fact, 8 of the present-day owners were charter FAUX members, representing 7 of the league's 12 charter franchises. (Chicago Chick Conspiracy's co-owners took control of their own teams in 1991). Despite the steady participation of the current ownership, FAUX football has seen the rise and fall of several franchises. This honor roll pays tribute to our missing and fallen comrades...

Final Season, 2003

Bedrock Ninerstones
Owner:

Steven "Red" Matteucci

Record:

79 - 87 - 2 (.476)
5 Playoff Appearances (1992, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2003)

Seasons:

1992 - 2003

Notes:

A member of FAUX's prestigious class of 1992, Bedrock entered the FAUX Football League along with the Tasmania Devils and Sioux City Sirens. The Ninerstones went 8-6 in their first season, earning a playoff berth as a wildcard. Since that promising debut, however, the team found the going a bit tougher. After a five year absence from the postseason tournament, the club matched their original 8-6 mark in 1997 and earned their second wildcard berth. In 1999, behind a triumvirate that comprised of QB Peyton Manning, RB Emmitt Smith, and WR Terrell Owens, the 'Stones jumped off to a 9-1 start, finishing 9-5 and capturing their first division title. In 1999, The Ninerstones enjoyed the distinction of being the only team to defeat the eventual champion Petaluma War Pigs, preventing the perennial powerhouse from playing a perfect season. With the drafting of rookie quarterback Peyton Manning in 1998, the Ninerstones had established themselves as an upper tier team, In their last five seasons, with Manning at the helm, the team went 40-30 (.571), which was among the leagues strongest winning percentages for that five-year period. Bedrock set a franchise high mark for wins in 1999 (9-5), and matched that record the following season.The Ninerstones had the distinction of playing in the same city and under the same name for their entire tenure.

Final Season, 2000

 

Cucamonga Crapshoots


Owner:

Voltron the Magnificent, Intergalactic Emporer
Bernie Oyharcabal, General Manager

Record:

70 - 81 - 1 (.464)
2 Playoff Appearances (1991, 1998)

Seasons:

1990 - 2000

Notes:

An aptly named franchise, the only thing predictable about charter league member Cucamonga was its unpredictability. Reportedly owned by Voltron the Magnificent, Intergalactic Emporer, day-today management of the team was handled everyone's favorite Basque, Bernie Oyharcabal. Oyharcabal's unorthodox draft style became the stuff of FAUX legend, and the Crapshoots fielded some strong clubs, including two playoff teams (1991 and 1998), during their tenure. In both their playoff seasons the franchise began their season with an impressive 5-0 mark. Their best regular season record was posted after the 1998 season, when Cucamonga finished 8-6. Always dangerous, the Crapshoots proved to be "Giant Killer" of sorts, often humbling strong front-runners. Originally named the Arlington Argonauts, Oyharcabal's team compiled an 18-22 (.450) record under that banner. They were renamed the Cucamonga Crapshoots in 1993. The loss of this franchise creates a large void in FAUX Football; Bernie's long and fun-loving participation in FAUX Football is fondly remembered.

Spin-Off Leagues

A quick nod to a couple of FAUX's known spin-off leagues...

  • FAUX's Pee Wee League (1999) was our answer to NFL Europe...our "developmental" league featuring owners between 8 and 10 years of age. Maybe this was more like our version of the Extreme Football League, as it has gone the same way.
  • Ultimate Fantasy Football League (1992- ) spun off from FAUX in 1992, using the rules created by FAUX as the basis of their own league.
  • Electric Football League (1988- ) founded by the FAUX commish in 1988 as Everex Football League, this was the first league to use a version of the scoring method developed by FAUX's commissioner and founder. The EFL lasted longer than good old Everex...
