I'm surprised to hear this rumor. Daytona's owners helped prop up Columbus last year. To take the risk of starting up a second franchise, especially when the transfer of the club to the new owners wasn't a sure thing, you would think they are doing pretty good financially with their own team.

I'd be willing to make a few pesos. Sign me up! Coming soon . . . the Mexico City Fightiñ' Tildes!

I really, really hope no one with $5mil is stupid enough to buy an NIFL team.

As much as I find most UIF fans annoying, I do believe that they are one of the best run leagues in indoor football. They will probably be out of the east next year, and I really doubt that is a bad thing.

I too have heard mentions of Jacksonville from a few articles concerning the WIFL.

The Jacksonville Tomcats turf was last seen in Council Bluffs being used by the Iowa Blackhawks, so that should tell you something.

The Pueblo newspaper had an article a while back that said that there were other leagues looking into Pueblo after the Pistols folded. I'm thinking Pueblo will be an AIFA team next season. It might be possible that a few teams jump ship from the af2 and UIF, but the AIFA shouldn't be depending on th...

The costs mentioned by nksports seem correct to me. But those are costs for any indoor league, and turf is a one-time cost. Not to mention that in the APFL you can opt not to pay your players(i.e. Springfield). Also, I don't know the specific numbers but I believe franchise fees, if there are any, i...

The CIFL seemed to have the same small-town mindset the APFL has when the GLIFL started. Teams in places like Marion, OH and Bethlehem, PA. Now they have teams in Chicago and Milwaukee so they have pretty much lost that mindset. In minor league sports, their are three types of markets. There's "...
