Default The NIFL kills another franchise

After a personal best record in the NIFL it appears the Shockwave will fall into its own crack. The team will halt all operations for the 2008 season in any league. They have commited to come back in the 2009 season, With reasons as to no exsisting league close enough to the west coast it appears that the NIFL has swallowed up another team.

I have to believe that the owners of the San Diego franchise were NOT in the dark about the "STATE OF THE LEAGUE" when the season started. They made their bed...

Funny- nothing screams hypocrite like a hater hating. Oh, and nothing screams "WE DON'T HAVE A BRAIN" by leaving a sham of a league (NIFL) just to go to one that is probably worse off (AIFA).

Didn't you ran away from the NIFL board with you tail between your legs a month or two ago?

While the AIFA isn't great there is NO WAY that you can say that it's worse than the NIFL!!! Cleveland Gary is clueless when it comes to running a a league. All the promises that he continued to make last year----- including multiple trips to Cincinnati with "investors". I put my knee high boots on and I still got covered in sh*t it was so deep!

The AIFA may not have a great business model but at least they are playing games and teams don't have to create their own championship game that doesn't include a PLAYOFF SYSTEM.

You know marshall, if you weren't a fellow Raiders fan, i might try to think up some sort of argument, but you are right- AIFA might not be worse, but I think we can safely say that it is well on its way to being just as bad. Definitely not a move up simply because it hasn't messed up its playoff yet. It is still setting itself up for the same problems and has good teams (e.g. Wyoming) so far away from everyone else that I wouldnt be surprised if they can't make a dime this year b/c of travel.
