#6 – Rosie Richards

Rosie Richards of The Majors

Rosie Richards is the head of operations for the Motor City Majors. She has acted as the executive board’s advisor for the last 8 years, but was never promoted to be an actual board member due to Abraham Arnold’s staunch misogynist ways. Now that the old man has passed on and fresh blood has entered the organization, Rosie is finally getting the credit she deserves. She has her work cut out for her by trying to keep Alex in check and getting Eddie up to speed with the day-to-day workings of an elite level franchise. Her determination, passion for the game and natural business instincts keep the team running and save the Pratt brothers from looking foolish as newbie owners.

#5 – Billy Lincoln

Billy Lincoln of The Majors

I know – I’m WAY behind on this one. I’ll do my best to play catch up in the next week or so.

This is Billy Lincoln. He is the cartoon equivalent of RIM CEO Jim Balsillie, who unsuccessfully tried to relocate 3 teams back to his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario. Known for trying to make underhanded deals that circumvented the NHL’s policy on franchise ownership, Balsillie made a lot of enemies in his short time as a potential suitor for team ownership.

I decided to take the character one step further and make him an absolute slimeball. Billy Lincoln is a corporate tycoon who seeks to pluck the Motor City Majors from the Arnold family and relocate the team back to his hometown. He tries a number of different plans which are foiled by members of the Majors organization. He will end up acting as the foil to the Pratt brothers, and will be a thorn in their sides on many occasions.

#4 Albert Arnold

Albert Arnold - The Majors

As the bumbling son of franchise owner Abraham A. Arnold, Albert is heir to the family company fortune and all of its assets and liabilities – including a losing Hockey club. As a child, Albert was never interested in sports, and has taken more of an intellectual path in life, as the president of research and development for the family’s auto corporation (Arnold Motors). With the eventual passing of his father comes a large responsibility. Does Albert try to run the ship himself, or will he be forced to sell the team to an owner who has the sports business acumen needed to make the franchise a winning one?

Abraham A. Arnold - The Majors

The crotchety owner of the Motor City Majors, Abraham A. Arnold (or triple A as he is called when he isn’t present) has driven the once storied franchise into the ground with poor management of personnel and staff. After acquiring the Championship winning team from his father Alastair, Motor City has failed to recapture the glory of those years in the Golden Era of hockey. Unless a major change happens at the ownership level, the team will continue its decades long slide into the league basement and cement itself in the history books as one of the worst franchises in the modern era.

Abraham Arnold refuses to listen to any types of change, and is extremely stubborn. At the ripe age of 82, he barely clings to life yet still fiercely controls anything management related in regards to the Majors.

#30 – The Amazing Evergrowing Tape Ball

| November 30, 2010 | 0 Comments

This little critter actually exists! He lives in my daughter’s hockey bag. Every game it grows another layer, using the tape from my daughter’s shin pads and elbow pads for new skin. Last week it outgrew the helmet and developed a pulse. It does bring good luck to all who touch it. I am considering building an extension to the garage to give Tape Ball it’s own place to stretch it’s legs.

#27 – ToasterHead

I’ve had this guy in my mind for years, just didn’t know which direction to go with him…. I like this design.

Toaster Head is a real hot-head. He always plays hungry and when he’s playing really well, your team is toast!

That was so cheesy, but whatevvs.

#24 – Turkey Puck

Arriving just in time for the Thanksgiving, Turkey Puck can be used for a holiday tournament, or a food ration of minimal proportions. Check out the wild look in his eyes! Turkey Puck is definitely looking to score this weekend!

#23 – Instant Replay

| November 23, 2010 | 0 Comments

This guy’s wrath can always be felt the second time around. He doesn’t even need to be in the same building to launch an attack. Usually sitting on the couch in his mother’s basement somewhere in Toronto, Instant Replay is on-call all hockey season long and is authorized to question every little move of our beloved old-timer goal judge, Red Light Rebel (see Day #21). Who will get the edge in this battle of Tech vs Old School?

#21 – Red Light Rebel

| November 21, 2010 | 0 Comments

He’s old, cranky and knows he’s becoming obsolete. The eagle-eyed Red Light Rebel has been allowing and disallowing goals since the birth of hockey. At first he was positioned behind the net, armed with only a bell. Over the years, he developed his armor with the invention of mesh and plexiglass. His weapon of choice is a light switch, however, he has used a hand-held remote in recent times. He is now in the dog-fight of his professional life and he faces his greatest threat yet…. INSTANT REPLAY!

Your typical hockey-playing brat-girl. That is all.

#10 – The Penalty Killer

| November 10, 2010 | 0 Comments

He’s got two minutes to get the job done. Talk about pressure! Equipped with his stick and a lot of hustle, he always finds himself shorthanded, defending all kinds of attacks, but still gets the job done. He enjoys putting his rivals on ice!

#7 – Sub-Dude

A man who is very quiet, but serious about his job…. the SUB-DUDE! Forget the t-shirt gun: This guy shoots submarine sandwiches out of his gun. While he has provided many-a-fan with a nice little snack, he has also put out several scoreboards and pasted a picture of the Queen with a mayonnaise dirty Sanchez moustache! Stay hungry my friend!

#1 – Captain Composite

| November 1, 2010 | 2 Comments

Hockey players have abandoned the traditional lumber in favor of the modern, high-tech carbon composite stick. So has the pirate Captain Composite. A peg-leg no more! He is prone to head shots (wouldn’t you like to knock that bucket off his head?) and gets called for “hooking” penalties quite often. CapComp is great at pestering goalies as he “anchors” himself in front of the net. He appears to be in play-off mode at all times with that shaggy facial hair hanging off him.
