  History of the American Basketball League
Downey Games is proud to announce our latest year book for Player of the Game Basketball, The History of the American Basketball League.

With this year book, you get the complete 1961-62 ratings as well as the partially completed 62-63 season ratings. Every player to take the court in the ABL is represented in this year book.

The American Basketball League played one full season, 1961-1962, and part of 1962-1963. The league actually folded on December 31, 1962. The ABL was the first basketball league to have a three point shot for baskets scored far away from the goal.

The league was formed when basketball mogul Abe Saperstein did not get the Los Angeles National Basketball Association (NBA) franchise he felt he had been promised in return for his years of supporting the NBA with doubleheader games featuring his Harlem Globetrotters. When Minneapolis Lakers owner Bob Short was permitted to move the Lakers to Los Angeles, Saperstein reacted by convincing National Alliance of Basketball Leagues (NABL) team owner Paul Cohen (Tuck Tapers) and Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) National Champion Cleveland Pipers owner George Steinbrenner to take the top NABL and AAU teams and players and form a rival league. Saperstein and Cohen each secretly made arrangements with local promoters in the other cities to finance those teams so there would be an eight-team league. Saperstein's ego led him to place the Los Angeles Jets in Los Angeles to take on the transplanted Lakers. He got Bill Sharman as coach and signed former NBA players Larry Friend and George Yardley to give the team instant credibility. The idea backfired and the Jets did not last the season.

The multiple radical changes, combined with uneven attendance (although some teams, such as the Kansas City Steers, drew well), and no fresh capital from new owners, caused Saperstein and Cohen to decide to throw in the towel with the close of 1962 on December 31. Just like that, the league that pioneered the three point shot and the wider foul line (both eventually adopted by the rest of the basketball world) was gone. The Philadelphia Tapers, Kansas City Steers, Hawaii Chiefs, Cleveland Pipers and even the Los Angeles Jets after a time all came back and returned to their NABL roots, where they continue to this day as AAU Elite teams.

TOP ABL Players included Johnny Cox, Larry Friend, Bill Spivey, Roger Kaiser, Jeff Cohen, George Yardley, Larry Siegfried, Ben Warley, Connie Dierking, Bill Bridges, Win Wilfong, Gene Conley, Gene Tormohlen, Fred Sawyer, Bevo Francis, Maurice King (basketball player), Nick Romanoff, Charlie Tyra, Sylvester 'Cy' Blye, Roger Taylor, Rick Herrscher, Frank Burgess, Dick Brott, Archie Dees, Larry Swift, Lee Harman, Phil Wilcox, Connie Hawkins, Bruce Spraggins, and Larry Comley.

As with all of our offerings, the Year Books are available in and instant download, E-book format, as well as fully printed Year Books.

  The History of the ABA
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of every ABA season for Player of the Game Basketball.

Now you can re-live the history of the ABA with Player of the Game Basketball. We now have every season rated, from 1967-68 to the conclusion of the league in 1975-76.

That's every team and player to play in the ABA!

Player of the Game Basketball is the quick-play basketball game that provides you with complete individual scoring, assist and rebounding statistics**. Games play in 5 minutes or less with full statistics for every player. Teams will also replicate their propensity for winning at home and on the road. Player of the Game Basketball is a great stand-alone basketball game. But it also works very well in conjunction with other more detailed possession-by-possession basketball games. You can play out games of your choice with other sims, and use Player of the Game to provide statistics of other games, enabling you to have full league leaders and standings.

Player of the Game, also features easy to implement normalization mechanics to allow you to realistically match up any team against another in ABA history.

As with all of our offerings, the Year Books are available in and instant download, E-book format, as well as fully printed Year Books.

  2006 SPHL Year Book Released
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of the 2006 season for the Southern Professional Hockey League.

Re-live the fun and excitement of the 2005-06 Southern Professionall Hockey League season. The yearbook includes every SPHL team and all skaters.

Play out the 2006 season with the best hockey game on the planet!

The Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) is a low-level professional ice hockey league with teams located in the southeastern United States.

The SPHL's history traces back to three other short-lived leagues. The Atlantic Coast Hockey League started play in the 2002-03 season. After its only season, the league became the South East Hockey League, in the same season as the World Hockey Association 2 began play. As both the SEHL and WHA2 folded, surviving teams from both leagues as well as two expansion teams formed the SPHL.
Key Rule Differences

As per minor leagues, there are some rule differences between the SPHL and the NHL (and even the ECHL and AHL).

* A team may dress sixteen regular players to a game. Two players dressed for the game will be goaltenders.
* There is no trapezoid restriction limiting the goaltender playing the puck and is eligible to play the puck anywhere on his side of the center redline.
* A mouthpiece is required for all players except the goaltender.
* No curvature of stick limitations as in the NHL, AHL, and ECHL.
* All overtime periods in the regular season are between three skaters per team and the goaltender (3 on 3, compared to 4 on 4 in other leagues). Penalty rules differ during the overtime:
o During the first three minutes of overtime, in case of a penalty, the non-offending team is awarded one extra skater per penalty (up to five).
o In the final two minutes, any minor penalty results in an automatic penalty shot.

The printed season yearbooks come in two formats; a printed team sheet offering, and individual die-cut cards. Both offerings are in vivid, professionally printed, full-color.

  The Best of the AWA
Downey Games is proud to announce the release of our latest set for TV Pro Wrestling. We'd also like to thank Rich Dillon for his help with this set.

Our second Old-Time Set for TV Pro Wrestling features the stars of the Minneapolis based territory, the AWA. This set features over 170 new wrestlers, Tage Teams, Managers and referees! This is by far, our largest TV Pro Wrestling set.

The American Wrestling Association (AWA) ran from 1960 to 1991. It was owned and founded by Verne Gagne and Wally Karbo. The territory was originally part of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), becoming an independent territory in the late 1950s. NWA World champion Pat O' Connor was recognized as the first AWA World champion, but when O'Connor failed to defend the new AWA title against number one contender Verne Gagne, Gagne was awarded the belt.

The AWA would become inactive in the fall of 1990.

The influence of Verne Gagne and the AWA as a whole in professional wrestling is immeasurable. Countless wrestlers and personalities were either trained by or received their first big break under Gagne, an influence that is felt to this day.

The Printed version comes on individual, die-cut cards. The link to the printed version is:
http://www.downeygames.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_3&products_id=274
