The Texas Split Begins

Didn't take Dittman long to begin the split. The Hammerheads, New Team in Rio Grande Valley, possibly Austin to the SIFL. I wonder who is next to leave the IFL???????

With Dittman riding in on his White Horse the SIFL is saved , this was the only move TH had if he doesn't allow Dittman in the reality was no more SIFL sorry but true.

This also sets up a possible Trojan Horse the move is still a power play by Dittman bring in a whole division and you have a seat at the table all these leagues have that open seat.

But enough for all that's still to come ,SIFL fans get to continue having teams to follow and the league is now finally on the right path and now be taken as a real player in the league game of the sport instead of the card board cut out it was standing in the corner.

Good Luck and best wishes....

Dittman leaving is not good news for the SIFL, but good for the IFL!

This was definitely a power move. How many supposed owners does he think he has in his hip pocket? I guess we will see in the coming days and weeks. Have to agree with Suge, this almost may single handedly save the SIFL and bring some credibility with the addition of some established teams rather than more expansion teams.

The IFL losses Texas and Arkansas and the SIFL gains some established and solid teams. The balance of power in indoor football is shifting.

No, the power in the sport is still in the upper Plains. Has been for a few years now. Only reasonably stable geographic area the sport has right now.
What are you doing here?

Does anyone who has followed this sport for more than just a year and knows the history of some owners really feel the loss of a Dittman a bad thing or a plus to whatever league he worms his way into?
