Philadelphia Americans Press Releases

  • Philadelphia Presser Ahead of Season Opener +

    On the eve of the season opener the Philadelphia Americans GM has finally faced the media ahead his teams clash with the Seattle SeaDogs. Gibson so far has layed low since returning to the top job which has frustrated many sports journalists and writers of the OBWL who have been forced to wait for answers or anything to write about in regards to the Philadelphia organisation. That wait was finally over today as the Americans called a press conference to discuss everything from Gibson's return to management and the Americans championship prospects to Gibson's long running feud with the Stallions GM. "What did you make of the pre-season in Philadelphia? It seems like you guys did a fair amount of Read More
  • Americans Shocked With Sudden Regime Change +

    JAY AMADO QUITS, GIBSON HIRED The Philadelphia Americans were shocked with the sudden departure of their long time GM Jay Amado who left the organisation for the swamp lands, beaches and people running from their past. Jay now calls Florida home. With little time and a coaching roster to assemble the American organisation received a call from former Minnesota GM Steve Gibson applying for the role. Despite the roller coaster of a ride that was the Minnesota Marauders and two seasons out of the system Gibson obviously said the right things to secure the position. NEW HEAD COACH IN TOWN Gibson's first job was to secure a Head Coach and an Assistant Coach.The Americans secured Fidel Pelaez who was high Read More
  • Hope, Heath, and Possibilities Abound for New Look Americans +

    And just like that, the Philadelphia Americans were all in. Shortly before Christmas, general manager Jay Amado threw in the towel on the Horace Robinson experiment, and the Americans announced that he would be dealt to the Honolulu Inferno for an on-paper unremarkable collection of expiring salary and what looked to be a late first round pick. Robinson and bench sparkplug Henry Barrick were sent away in a three-team trade, with Robinson landing in Hawaii and Barrick heading south, to the Tampa Bay Tritons. Coming to Philadelphia along with the Inferno first round pick were center Jasper Hughes, point guard Henry Moreland, and shooting guard Joey Short. “That trade was more about balance,” Amado says, looking back on it. “We Read More
  • Philadelphia Deals Drumm for HoRob +

    In a somewhat surprising move, the Philadelphia Americans announced prior to the draft that the team had moved OBWL legend Joseph Drumm to the Los Angeles Chaos in return for 25-year-old point guard Horace Robinson. The move is a curious one for the Americans, who signed Drumm to a max deal just two seasons ago. “Words can't describe how grateful we are to Joey for his two years in Philadelphia,” general manager Jay Amado said. “Unfortunately, things did not turn out the way we had hoped they would, and we figured that it would be in the best interest of everyone if we made this move.” In two seasons in Philadelphia, Drumm did everything the team asked of him, including Read More
  • Meet Philadelphia's Los Asesinos +

    Dinero! *Swish* *Thud* Dinero! *Swish* *Thud* Dinero! *Swish* *Thud* It’s a pattern that has become very familiar in the empty confines of the CGK Garden on off nights in Philadelphia in the last month and a half. “Dinero” means money in Spanish--a language that Philadelphia's two leading scorers, Brian Montes and Matt Torres learned to speak before they knew English. Montes, the more outspoken of the two could very easily be talking about the money that the two of them will make in the coming years. He signed a five-year deal worth over 114 million dollars last offseason, while Torres inked his name next to a four-year, 58.24 million dollar deal this year. But, that's not what Montes means. With Read More
  • Americans Busy On Draft Day: A Draft Review +

    The Philadelphia Americans had perhaps the busiest draft day of any team, this year. They entered the day holding picks 14 and 21 in the first round, and 41 and 43 in the second round. It was already expected to be busy, but once things got underway, they got even more wild. The team ended up making five draft selections, two trades, and positioning themselves to be able to add more players in free agency. Let's take a look at all of the newest Americans, and how they found their way to Philadelphia. ===THE TRADES=== Americans trade #14 overall to the Boston Buzzards for #19 and #24 overallWhen Philadelphia came on the clock at #14, the team had every intention of Read More

  • Americans Get Aggressive in Offseason; Prepare for New Era +

    After a disappointing season that saw the Philadelphia Americans finish with a bottom-10 record, it was inevitable that changes were to come, and big changes at that. General Manager Jay Amado had spent the previous year blowing up the team, trading Malik Campbell for a draft pick and expiring salary last offseason, then doing the unthinkable and trading Philadelphia staple Leif Buyer to the Invaders for more expiring deals and another first round pick. The moves came fast and furious once the offseason hit, in both the draft and free agency. ***The Draft*** With the pick received in the Campbell trade with Boston, the Americans literally hit the lottery. The pick ended up being #2 overall, and allowed the Americans Read More
  • Buyer Dealt in Six Player Deal +

    Philadelphia, PA (AP)-- In a not-so-shocking turn of events, the Philadelphia Americans, today, dealt fan favorite, future hall of famer, and former MVP Leif Buyer, at the trade deadline. In return for Buyer, Philadelphia received three players and the Indiana Invaders first round draft pick in 2023. Also going to Indiana were PG John Puryear and PF Jason Luker. The Americans, who earlier in the offseason dealt Malik Campbell to the Boston Buzzards now appear to be in "tank" mode, on the surface, but things may not be as bad as they seem. Buyer, who has been available since the beginning of the offseason leaves Philadelphia after spending his entire career with the franchise. In his prime, he was the Read More
  • Americans Offseason Review Part 2: The Draft +

    Philadelphia -- AP | With the the OBWL Draft and Free Agency in the past, the Philadelphia Americans have turned their attention toward training camp. Last week we took a look at the staff turnover that happened in Philadelphia this offseason, and this week we will turn our attention toward the OBWL Draft. The Americans had a very quiet draft day, on paper, but it was one in which Philadelphia was able to land one of their top targets, without having to move up or down the board. The Americans entered the day with two draft picks: #9 in both the first and second rounds. There were reportedly a few discussions involving possibly picking up another pick at the end of the Read More
