Hey Fran, I remember the wonderful job you did covering the XFL.

That's why it says the league banned them from it. Makes the team look like the victim in all of this.

And that's exactly why I consider the APFL a success. There is no pretense of a national major league. It is what it is. And it does a decent job doing just that. In fact, I feel the APFL model...

He's a figurehead. It will give some good will to people who 'know' of him. The owners of the league/teams will still have final say. Nothing wrong with that. Always better to have a front-man while...

Knowing what happened in the second season of the AIFL (which Haines ran), I highly doubt that will ever happen. They say time heals all wounds, but time certainly doesn't reimburse lost money.

I know the fans, players, and coaches don't like a cakewalk, but your ownership sure doesn't get it.
