Notes- Memphis Southmen started out as the Toronto Northmen prior to the season's start. -The Detroit Wheels owners filed for Chapttter 11 Bankruptcy on September 24, the same day that the New York Stars were sold from Robert J. Schmertz to Upton Bell, who then moved the Stars south to Charlotte. (For one game, they were called the Charlotte Stars, sporting Chicago Bears decals on their helmets, and for supreme irony, they played at Soldier Field-home of the Bears-against the Chicago Fire.) They were eventually renamed to the Charlotte Hornetts. The Detroit Wheels played 6 more games after the owners declared bankruptcy. -Houston Texans were transferred to Shreveeeport on September 18, and were initially called "Louisiana" since no new nickname was given at the time and the "Texans" nickname was dropped. They became officially the Shreveport Steamer on Sept 23, 1974 and they disbanded right before the playoffs started.
