Home Town: Petawawa, Ontario, Canada
Team Colours: What else, purple with gold trim
Team Mascot: None, but contemptlating hiring George to dress up in a costume
Team Formed: During Season three I believe (previously Tasmanian Devils)
Mortal Enemies: Port Credit Circus Stars (for giving us our only defeat of '95) (and costing the owner a six pack of John Smith's Bitter)
The Petawawa Purple Platypi are a figment of my evil imagination. As a results, most character names are extremely bad puns or a play on words of somekind. My knowledge of ARF is negligible, only having seen the game played a scant few times on Canadian Cable television. The most notorious thing about this team is the manager, Loopy Creature, who not only supervises the general training of players, but also is responsible for all team press releases.
The team was formed on the collapse of the Tasmanian Devils, who had no quality players whatsoever. Well they had two players with 60+ ratings, but both of those had suffered 98/99 and 99/101 injuries, so the team was destitute and revived itself due to the SPARF phenomenom of cranking
Predictions for the season:
Somewhere in the Top 6 of gold, lining up for a serious title run the season after this up coming one.
