    Goal Horns for the VHL!

    Under that case I’m willing to say it’s totally reasonable to use them as a PT if you want. Put them under podcasts if you do. I’d say 3 horns = 1 PT with a max of 1 per team. You don’t have to if you don’t want to, just offering since it’s something creative.

    How long roughly would you say these guys take you to make?

    Why don't we retire numbers anymore?

    That was an odd one but obviously stuff like that could be easily avoided. I’m also trying to remember how that worked out again. Wasn’t it that @JardyB10 was supposed to get CAL G via the GM rule but dropped the team and traded himself before he ever hit the VHL?
  7. Incoming old man rant, you've been warned. Back in my day the VHL had this thing called retired numbers. In fact the forum still exists for them, you can find it here. Unlike most of the HoF though, retired numbers have seemingly gone the way of the dinosaurs. A quick check reveals that the last team announcement regarding number retirements was over a year and a half ago when Toronto retired World B. Free's #99. So why did they stop, where did they go? My estimate is simply that GM's have gotten complacent in regards to this aspect of the league that really has no affect on anyone. It is true that having your number retired by a team didn't actually change anything. You didn't have better odds of getting into the Hall of Fame or anything (though I know Beketov is my only retired number and also my only HoF player, coincidence?) by having your number retired. However the gesture was still nice. Especially to those players who maybe spent a long time with 1 team or helped them out in one way or another but never quite hit Hall of Fame level numbers. Having your jersey retired doesn't mean that you were necessarily the best player ever but the team recognized your contribution none-the-less. It's also something that's honestly easy to do. Once we get a design sorted, which wouldn't be that hard to do, they would take next to no time to make. There's no voting process on the matter like the HoF and GM's can decide to honour whomever they want for whatever reason. Was it always kinda an empty gesture? Sure but that doesn't mean it wasn't an entertaining part of the league that has gone dark recently. So, this is my petition to the GM's of the VHL; Hell, even to the GM's of the VHLM because they deserve them too: retire some numbers. Let's give this section some love again. Maybe @Will could even get it a rightful spot in the Portal Hall of Fame. Why not, right?

    Thank you, I missed that one. You could do a Builder article if you wanted. They are a bit tougher though as they require a bit more league history.

    Let me know when you do and I'll add it on the portal. Or you can just add it yourself, your choice.

    Theo Axelsson remains the only player left unclaimed as well as the multiple builder articles, though those are obviously a bit more challenging.

    All three of these are confirmed and removed from the OP as well as adding @Enorama's new claim. A note as well for Felix Peters that might go missed: worth mentioning that he had the longest wait of any player on the HoF ballot. Peters entered the ballot S32 and wasn't inducted until S52.

    You have his career total SO listed as 15, just an FYI. I would feel far less satisfactory beating him if that had been the case haha. In fact it looks like most of his career totals are just his final season totals.
