Des Moines most likely will have an af2 team in 2008. (think there are still some financial "i"s to dot and "t"s to cross).

'Course if we're mentioning football, can't forget the Beef in Omaha.

This league (NIFL) is like a frickin' cockroach. You could throw a nuclear bomb at it and it would still survive

So I'd rather spend a quarter of an ABA franchise to repair my car, as opposed to spending a franchise and a half to get a new car that might have some planned obsolescence that causes it to break down 5 days after the end of the warranty period.
