Well, they need to make sure that the "real" story doesn't get out - like it has numerous times this year. Most leagues/teams understand how/when to pick their spots on releases and know what to say or what not to say. Instead, the CIFL has embarrassed itself several times.
Sure, PR involves popularizing successes, downplaying failures, announcing changes, etc. But when you don't tell your own owners the full truth, or lie issues with owners/coaches, I feel that crosses the line.
On the leagues message board that stated that they have taken over control of our team. Should I then send them all of the outstanding bills that Kris, D-Lo and Justin have accumulated? Just a thought. I might give everyone we owe money to, the leagues office number.
That said, if people want to sue, the league's just about the only thing left to sue.
