Philadelphia Brawlers Logo


The Brawlers actually began as the Player-Created Team from the first Blitz game. The team was rocked by scandal when a federal investigation revealed gross misappropriation of public funds in financing the team's new stadium. The investigation led to a criminal indictment of owner Lyman Strang and a recall election that saw Mayor Sheila Andrews defeated and thrown from office. A bankrupt Strang was forced to sell his team to The League, who moved it to Philadelphia, desperate to put the scandal behind them.

The Brawlers live up to their names with their style of play. They cheat as much as they can, and get away with far more than they should. However, cheap shots can only get you so far. The Brawlers are held back by an abysmal offense even for Division III standards, but this defense can play with the best of them.

Although in the first game the player was able to choose any of three rookies and three veterans to play on Strang's "Dream Team" the canon story places the rookie as QB Clayton Wescott and the veteran as LB Ted Lawless both of whom have moved on from Philadelphia. Wescott was offered a very lucrative deal to play for the Washington Redhawks and Lawless chose to sign with the scandal ridden New England Regulars.
