They are comparable to the SIFL, which has 7 teams.

The SIFL only has 6 teams playing this year.
The AIFA has 13 teams but the east and west never play each other until the championship, so you basicly have a 6 team league and a 7 team league.
Even the IFL , with 25 teams, has teams playing each other 3 times during the regular season.
The CIFL should be fine.
the tanked economy pretty bad. Mad props to the CIFL for getting the 6
best franchises possible at this juncture. Look for expansion in 2011 & beyond.
Oh and BTW. A CIFL team (Cincinnati) is playing an IFL team (Bloomington)
in a preseason game. Natepreds, we'll see how your comparison fairs after
that match up.
but the CIFL Cards only have a 10 game schedule with 6 home dates. You'd
think that old Bonecrusher management will put a good team on the field and
w/ the (new) CIFL budget structure, they should make a good showing & have
some funds to spare.

I don't know about that. One team (Columbus) is going to be invisible. While expenses exceeded income, at least the AFL team did some some marketing and got butts in the seats.
The Cincinnati team is going into one of the most badly scorched markets in indoor/arena football history (perhaps only nearby Dayton is worse). The I-75 corridor from Lexington to Troy is lined with the corpses of dead franchises.
