Mutinous Apes manager Walt Musselman was on the 2006 SECFOR mission, sharing a Humvee with Duffy and Nye. He joined the OIL in 2014 and has yet to have a winning season. However, part of that can be attributed to his owning the OIL record for most difficult schedule. Over three seasons, Muss's opponents have scored 146.67 points per game against the Apes, while Muss has averaged just 129.68. Getting outscored by 17 points per game will put a dent in your overall record, and Muss has the losses to prove it: the Apes have won just 25% of matchups since joining the league.
Fun fact: Musselman's 2016 season could have gone much differently, as he drafted both Matt Ryan and Jordan Howard late. But first-round pick Todd Gurley stunk it up. Muss also dropped Ryan before a single game was played and Howard before he won the starting job and became a top-10 fantasy RB.
As the regular season ends and the hunt for the Killman Memorial Trophy begins, the franchises that make up the American Conference are catching up to the original OIL. Logos and uniforms are being developed at a rapid pace. Below are the brands for the franchises owned by: Joshua D Lynn; James Peacock; Nick Green; Thomas Hillier; Charles Neely; Walt Musselman; Adam Schuster; new OIL manager Don Roe; Lance Zerger; Commissioner Nick Reed; Mark Fitzgerald; Stephen Brosh; Bryan Nye; and Jimmy Venable.
Walter Musselman is one of the 14 managers in the first season of the OIL2. He, like every other manager in that league, was on the 2006 SECFOR mission in Iraq. This is Musselman's first year playing fantasy football, and it's showed. He's 0-7 and has had his hiccups with roster management. But he's not giving up, and he's determined to make a name for himself in the OIL2. That starts with developing a unique brand for his franchise, the Mutinous Apes. To that end, the Apes today unveiled a new logo and word mark, and it looks great:
