It hits the nail right square on the head. A good read for anyone following the sport, not just the CIFL.

It is a good thing they said yet next to no teams have folded, there will probably be at least 2 teams that fold

Not during the season, though. Every league lost teams this past offseason (except the IFL). That is commonplace in minor league sports.

Yeah, but The situation in Flint is no different then the one in Steubenville, Summit County, and Springfield last year. The league is just covering it up until the season over and then the team will fold.

It will get even worse if Flint doesn't show up in Rochester today

If the poster on the CIFL forum is correct and the team was willing to play with 13 guys, they should have let them play.
Getting ready to say "good-bye" to the CIFL

You spoke to soon. Jeff kicked the team out of the league when they decided not to play.Way behind on payroll;then asked to take paycut. The team was a joke.
