For the most part, yes. I believe there were one or two cancelled games in 2009 because the Nebraska team didn't have a home venue.

The 2008 season was pretty bad, and the APFL South was an awful...

I just asked this on another board, and was basically told that it is a hybrid pro/semi-pro league. Iowa and Kansas pay their players, Mid-Missouri and Springfield don't. I was surprised to hear that...

It seems like a lot of people are out of touch with the APFL recently, especially hearing the "games not being played" comment every once in a while, which is a little funny when the APFL played...

That was the 2009 SIFL. That included the Florida Kings and Houma Conquerers, now teams that are struggling to make it in semi-pro football. I think the Texas Hurricanes are too, but I can't be...

A press release was scheduled in Rome for the Thursday after this release. I'm guessing that had something to do with it.

I was wondering why they announced that. Usually leagues don't announce when they deny a team's application. What's really odd about this is that the title makes it sound like they'd given them the...

1. I've seen Division II college teams play on the NFL Network. This is nowhere near close to the NBC deal they had, which wasn't that great of a deal to start with.
2. If those players aren't...

Not seeing what you're getting at here. It's a 12 game season spread over 16 weeks, which isn't more than a normal schedule. It is home-and-home for the most part, with an extra home or away against...

The hardcore spirit of indoor football that's gotten us names like the 3rd COAST HARDHITTAZ?

I think Texas Rose will do just fine.
