Who Really Won the AUDL in 2012?

"Philadelphia" is definitely correct. But, would you also believe Phoenix?? 

The teams page on the American Ultimate Disc League website is chock-full of colors, logos, abbreviations, social media links and...some historical revisionism.

According to the AUDL's webpage, the Philadelphia Phoenixnot the Spinners, won the 2012 AUDL Championship Trophy. There's a trophy icon inscribed with 12 aside the Phoenix's listing.

The AUDL hardware was recently photographed at a San Jose Spiders tryout, and the trophy clearly states the winning city and team.

UPDATE [2/18/2015]
Solution: An asterisk has been deservedly placed aside the Philadelphia team's 2012 trophy icon.
