This site is dedicated to remembering the Tulsa Roughnecks, a team in the North American Soccer League from 1978-1984

*** What are your thoughts on a team in Tulsa going by the name the "Tulsa Roughnecks?" ***

Billy Caskey:  Well, I don’t know how the fans would feel about that.  That’s a one off thing that’ll never happen again.  They’ll never resemble the Roughnecks that we had here, all those years ago.  I think the name should be put to rest and put down in history. 

Victor Moreland:  Well said!  Put to rest, buddy, brilliant.

Survey backs fun, games at stadium

Family entertainment is wanted at the ex-baseball field, it shows.
By KEVIN CANFIELD World Staff Writer


Asked to rank what type of general uses they would most likely support, respondents' top three answers were: a multiuse sports complex (812); public events such as concerts and festivals (648); and development of entertainment options (444).

A follow-up question asking respondents to get specific garnered a similar response: 352 said they would like the site to be used for a soccer field, 107 wanted to see outdoor concerts and festivals there, and 103 suggested the space be used for an amusement park.

When the survey asked what types of activities should take place at the existing stadium, soccer again came out on top, followed by concerts and festivals, and baseball.


"We've only been in the league two and a half years and already half the teams hate us... Give me another two years and we'll have them all." 
Noel Lemon (1944-2012), 1980 Tulsa Roughnecks GM
