Cool Philadelphia and Baltimore

Might be homeless soon. Although Philadelphia has some alternatives. I don't see Rockford and Chicago going head to head.

Angry Do you have a clue what a trademark is?

The reason you get a trademark is so others can't profit or use something that your own. That "freakin" name Arena Football is trademarked and cannot be used in any way.

I don't work for AFL or...

You can have all the league structure and higher standards you want, but if the market doesn't support it, then its not going to work. Syracuse is not a good market ... they didn't support minor...

Thumbs down Ton of research, really?

Milwaukee, NJ, Detroit and Chicago are joining the new XSL. This is old news? Anyone who reads this site or looked at the league website would know this.

Thumbs down My mistake

Sorry Dino, it was Tbayz. Nonetheless, someone has to take the credit/fall for the failure. I don't think anyone could blame David Stern. Evans wasn't a puppet head and the PBL shouldn't consider his...

Maybe Phil can work his magic ...

so all the PBL teams fold like they did in the D-League. If the D-League really wanted him to stick around, they wouldn't have forced him to make that decision. Look at the all of the teams that...

Smile Heard any rumors or rumblings?

Just wondered if you heard anything of substance or is this just a theory? Minnesotans support the Swarm of the NLL, so I have no reason to doubt they would support AFL or af2. But just wondered.

Cool How did the Thunderbears draw?

Not knowing my Houston geography, is Katy right in the city? Looking at arenafan.com, the Thunderbears didn't draw well at the old Summit. Looks like they never averaged more than 5,000 per season.

Totally unoriginal

I find it even more annoying that they stole the name and logo of the old WNBA team in Cleveland. They couldn't find something a little more original?

Thumbs down Arkansas just had 6,000+ for a playoff game ...

Why would they close up shop? That makes no sense. Ironic, you have an IFL logo on your name (which is cheesy by the way) and you are spreading gossip about af2.
