Fantasy Football League

HistoryEdit

The Grande Prairie Super League (GPSL) began play on September 2004 under the assumed name the "Goose Bowl". The idea behind the league began from a group of people the partied with each other in university in Edmonton. This group went to a hockey tournament run by Canadian Hockey Enterprises in Banff, Alberta under the assumed name the Canadian Geese. Although, success at the tournament was poor, a bond was formed and a passion for sports and booze was cultivated. The original founding members included: Ryan Moe, Jesse Moe, Darren Walker and David Stone.

These four, along with 6 people that they knew formed the original season. 

The 10 teams included:
