Up next in the Reno Ice Adult League concept is a lot of things. Each thing that I am going to talk about in this post was on the line of becoming its own post. I decided to get them all into one post to get season one of this concept done faster. There are other concepts I want to do and finish before this year is up. I made goal horn’s for each team. I put together some rivalries. I also designed some pucks. Of course all of this only exists in this concept.
In this concept, each team has a goal horn. Like IIHF and Olympic events, the home and away teams’ goal horns are used. It is not just the home team’s goal horn that is used. The All-Star game for season one in this concept uses multiple goal horns from across the league. The way the RIAL would accomplish using goal horns is with the Goal Horn Hub app. Each teams goal horn and song is played after each goal. Each teams win horn is played after each win.
Miller Lite uses the Chicago Blackhawks (NHL) horn. Their goal song is Tiësto & Sevenn – BOOM. Their win song is the Miller Theme. There is also a sample in there from one of their commercials.
The Mustangs use the Detroit Red Wings (NHL) horn. Their goal song is Winning Is Everything by Autograph. Their win song is Stand In The Fire by Mickey Thomas. Both songs are from the movie Youngblood.
The Reno Gamblers use the Vegas Golden Knights (NHL) Horn. Their goal and win song is Hey Look Ma, I made It by Panic! At The Disco.

In A-League Miller Lite and Whisky Dekes are rivals. I have them as rivals because they both have beer related names. The Reno Gamblers and the Swamp Donkeys are rivals. I have them as rivals for a red vs blue rivalry. The other rivalry in A-League is The Mustangs and RT Janitorial. I have them as rivals as they are the remaining two teams plus they are close in age.
B-League Divisional Rivalries
In the Nevada division, Blue Moon and Hop Valley are rivals. I have them as rivals because they were left over after the other Nevada division. Coors Banquet and Coors Light are rivals. Their colors, logos, and branding already reflect this. I think it is kind of an obvious rivalry as they are booth Coors teams.
In the Reno division, Reno Pond Hockey and Reno Sriracha are rivals. This is because both teams are from Reno and have Reno in their name. Doughboys and Q&D Construction are the other Reno division rivalry. They are rivals because they are the two oldest teams in the Reno division.
In the Tahoe division, the Tahoe Dawgs and Tahoe Storm are rivals. They are rivals because they are both from Lake Tahoe. Cruz Construction and Mid-Ice Crisis are the other Tahoe division rivalry.
In the Sparks division, the Hot Shots and Murder Hornets are rivals. They are rivals because both teams are from Sparks. The Desert Dogs and the Slappy Gilmores are rivals. They are rivals because of on-ice incidents.
B-League Non-Division Rivalries
In B-League some of the rival teams are not in the same division. Reno Pond Hockey and the Slappy Gilmores are rivals. This is due to on-ice incidents. Cruz Construction and Q&D Construction are rivals. This is because they are both construction companies. The Desert Dogs and Tahoe Dawgs are rivals. That is because they share similar names.
In C-League, Revision Brewery and Satans Gatekeepers are rivals. Reno Fire Hosers and The Guardians are rivals. They are rivals because one of them is the fire department team and the other is the National Guard team. NPU/TKO Motorsports and The Guardians is the other rivalry in C-League. They are rivals because one team is the sheriff team and the other is the National Guard team.
RIAL Game Pucks
For this concept, Scheels is the puck sponsor. They pay the Reno Ice Adult League to have their logo on the pucks. Howies Hockey is the puck supplier. They pay the RIAL to use their pucks. The first puck seen above is the official practice puck. It has the Scheels logo on the top. It doesn’t have anything on the bottom. It is used in all RIAL team practices and pregame warm-ups. The second image is the top of the official game puck. It has the league name, the league logo, and it says “official 2021 game puck”. The last image is the bottom of the official game puck. It has a design inspired by the old school Cooper pucks. It has the rink logo, the Scheels logo, and it says “official”. The official game puck would be used for all RIAL official scrimmages and regular season games.
I didn’t make pucks with team logos as logistically for an adult league it wouldn’t work. With new teams coming each season and the short time between seasons, teams wouldn’t get new pucks until halfway through the season. It makes more sense to have official game pucks without team logos for the whole league. That would make it easier as pucks can then be ordered prior to the start of the new year.
RIAL Post Season Pucks
For this concept, on top of having an official practice and game puck, there are also pucks for each post-season competition. Each playoff, tournament, and bowl game has its own official puck. Those pucks replace the official game puck during the competition. The difference between the post-season pucks and the official game puck is the RIAL logo is replaced by the competition logo. The bottom of the pucks would be the same as the official game puck.
There are no pucks for playoff championships or tournament finals logos on them. One puck with the competition logo would be used throughout the entire competition. There is also no all-star puck. The official game puck would be used for the first season all-star events.
