2008 ~ Who Won Your League?
The first league formed from among the FantasySharks community, the Über League, was conceived April 18, 2003. One of its founding members, PrimeMover, found himself disappointed by his then competition, and quickly found that 11 members were happy to oblige in forming a group of true competitors in a unique and challenging format. Of course, even in earlier times, the community had far more than 12 hungry competitors, and the Guber and Not-Über-Guber Leagues immediately followed.
This spirit of competition flourished within the community, quickly becoming host to many more leagues, a number of which with unique and particularly challenging features. All sharing a common origin and spirit, it was only natural that a single symbol of excellence be created for the champions of these leagues. In 2005, long-time community fixture and graphic design expert Paddler began design of this symbol at the request of the then Über commissioner, CleffedUp. Nearly two years later, on July 22, 2006, on agreement by a majority of the Community League leadership, that symbol was finally born.
This as yet to be named trophy prominently features a shark in the Heisman style: The helmeted shark stares back at you while moving forward with its powerful (and ironic) legs, football firm in one fin, and a "stiff-arm" with the other. Its smaller form is presented in championship gold, adding text and a watery background to Paddler's original design. Its whimsy is only outdone by the ease of its recognition as a symbol of individual excellence in competition.
