[quote=""Bruiser""]Just not logical. Marion went dark because they couldn't forge on financially. Now they can accomplish the feat in only a few week's time? Is there some mysterious benefactor that has suddenly materialized with a wheelbarrow of cash?[/quote]

I think so...

I think the C-bus group had plenty on the line. They made promises
to the league that were just impossible to keep for the time they had.
Sad really... Now it looks like the ball is in Marion's court, again.
Sponsorships will be key at this point. But sources are saying
camp is opening soon.

No sir, Don't think that'll ever happen. To much history, tradition, and fan appeal
to just $hi# roll this franchise. Franke would sell it if he had to, to make the peace,

NFL players will not strike. If there is a lockout by the owners, it'll be in 2012. UFL could be on more solid ground by then and could perhaps make a dent. They need to be at least an 8 team, non-NFL market league, by then. They should stick with their fall schedule, whatever they do. Moving to spr...

Musical franchises continue in this league. Good sources are reporting
this franchise is going back to where it came from. Marion, Oh.
The CIFL will have 6 teams this year, come hell or high water.

Opportunity in 2001? Oh, you mean to get backed into a corner?
The UHL/IHL were doing fine until the economy tanked. This union
deal has always been a sticking point with the Franke's too. They
are gonna have to man up to go ECHL, CHL or move up to AHL.
