I only see that happening if enough money is thrust into his hands and I don't see these three teams doing that and why should they, they hold all the cards at this point. Some I feel are too greedy to do what's in the best interest of their league and the SIFL a prime example of greed and ego over what is best.
If the SIFL is to continue under Hager I see more of what the last three years have shown and anybody that argues that may be too crazy or ignorant to use the SIFL history as any kind of indicator. If the SIFL continues under Hager I see more desperation to fill it with teams than any real logic. Florida is a sign of that desperation. Might also be that since bridges in the SIFL 2009, and 2010 landscape burnt that Mr. Hager is opting for an all or primarily all Florida based league.
If Hager should step aside as he should and those three mentioned take control then the Florida team should be put out of the picture and only quality ownership's be considered.
Bingo, I believe that you have laid out the future options for the SIFL quite well. However, one qualification, the "alliance" as I refer to them as, is only the driving force in this process, they are not interested in being a three headed monster running the SIFL, or whatever league entity may ultimately be created, they are interested in all member teams being involved in the control of the league. This is far more likely to produce a much more stable environment for teams to conduct their business.
