It is the policy of the PIFL to not announce any markets till all the t's are crossed and the i's dotted. Might sound like a strange way of doing things, but just the way the are.

I think NK you're pretty much on target. Any new league right now has a bit of an uphill battle in the credibility department. The PIFL is not designed as an overnight fix or success, but a long term committment to restoring credibility to the sport.

Quite frankly, liquid assets should be in the neighborhood of 300-400K to start a team in year one. Actually probably a little more. At 100K you're depending heavily on ticket and sponsor sales with little cash to back it up. In most cases, season one will be a loser, but in season two with hard wor...

Seems malepig there is a little disagreement in this did Tri-Cities want to jump and was too late or not. Be open to the fact that you also could be wrong on this. As a friend to this ownership and don't believe they would lie to me on this or anything else, they did consider the af2 last season, bu...

Most owners at this level are working stiffs, just like many of us, they've just been successful, maybe made some wise investments, etc. Most are far from the do nothing on a day by day basis, just sit back and count their millions. Their teams for the most part are another investment, one that need...

Then I wish the well. My consern, not knowing Jerry, is that to many people are seeing the sales of these leagues, (AIFL, NAFL as examples) and think that they can startup a league and cash out in a few years. Not fully understanding the full startup costs, or the legalities involved with running, ...

I won't debate whether we are or will be better or not, time will tell that story, but you have to understand that we are just two guys that said enough is enough and put a plan together that pretty much mirriors what fans and owners say they want.

When talking about the af2, people have to look at what makes good business sense and what doesn't. They have to look at what their team is currently doing financially and weigh that against any blue sky there may be. The current operating budget for an af2 team is around 900,000. I've seen it in th...

If you look at what we've put out there, you will see we have designed things to promote local rivalries, even current ones and to encourage new ones. I can't speak to specifics, but I think Cincinnati, RiverCity and Fayetteville fans would like some of the teams that have contacted us on their sche...
