History: YNOT guessing game was originally posted on WNFF by sportsfan882, based on similar quizzes posted on forums for other teams. hammondnats maintained it for a few years. I continued it for several years. After it had disappeared for awhile, I brought it back in mid-season 2017. Some of the YNOT participants have been longtime WNFF members who rarely post in WNFF.
