One word: Clueless!And the XSL - which was announced BEFORE the NISL was announced, by the way - was in the process of being formed, too.
An article on baltimoreblast.com, published on September 9, 2008 talks about the newly created league and the teams that would be involved in it. Keep in mind this was an informative article, the league was established some time before then.

How the hell does that put the XSL founded before them, when their first press conference to announce the friggin league and its name was on September 16, 2008? 'Splain that please!
Furthermore, wth does the starting up of the NISL and the XSL have to do with the price of beans? As I recall, the last team to shutdown for a period of time that still is playing today shutdown after the XSL did. So whats the formation of those leagues have to do with anything at all?
