The GM

GM Larry is a BBY founder as the original owner of the Rednex (Now Sven’s Heroes) franchise. He retired from the BBY in 2008, only to be lured back by Bob Sr.’s charm and irresistible offer. Past yearbooks described GM Larry as: “What we like to call a team collector”.  His original draft strategy was “all the leafs in alphabetical order except Sundin because I don’t like him” (Look up the early seasons of his former franchise to see how that worked out). He became known for collecting Chicago Blackhawks and Calgary Flames as well.

Team collecting meshes well with the Scout Valley Bulldog situation as former owner Bob Sr. also liked to collect Leafs and Hawks. He also had a thing for the California-based teams due to his assistants… GM Larry has slowly let go of the California players (aside from franchise anchor Anze Kopitar), while taking ownership of the “Trade Freeze” slogan Bob Sr. made famous. Every once in a while, GM Larry opens up a window of trading and does some moves. The current version of GM Larry is on the cusp of his highest finish ever.

Inception

This franchise joined the BBY in 2001 as the Scout Valley Bulldogs under the Ownership of Bob Sr. who quietly employed a variety of assistants (the most noteworthy of whom would later become GM Jake of the Spartans). Bob Sr. negotiated a transfer of the Bulldog legacy to former BBY GM Larry (retired from the Rednex) at an Alice Cooper Concert at Casino Rama in 2011, they transitioned the team over a season to acclimate GM Larry to the team culture. Since 2012 the Scout Valley Bulldogs have been under the 100% control of GM Larry. At one time it was thought that former owner BoB Sr. had dropped the “Scout Valley” from the team name. He was adamant that this was not so. However, the fan base and rival GMs all refer to this team simply as the “Bulldogs”. Time will tell if GM Larry decides to shorten to the common usage.

The Arch Enemy

GM Larry identifies The Spartans as his arch-enemy. We suppose after years of resentment he has forgiven the Monster Meese for the Donut scandal and likewise decided to let bygones be with GM Wayne of the Daredevil for that whole Backstrom vs. Toews fiasco. Where is the root of this Spartan hatred? We have no idea… but look forward to watching it play out!
