I stand 100% behind my statement. What they choose not to tell you is up to them. They may not have told you the truth and that is up to them. But they did try to come to the af2 last year and was told no because the schedule was already done.
What are you talking about? And if you have some info, let's hear it. Don't just dangle it out there like you're with the CIA. Share it, or keep your yap shut.yellowpages wrote:Sounds like a certain league in the "Midwest" (Not UIF) is hoping the NIFL does win the lawsuit as they believe that all the teams will rush to them for protection. (This "Midwest" league may be exempt from the suit because of the AFL suit a few years back). A pipe dream at best. There are some talks between a couple of leagues but, they do not involve this "Midwest" league.
Clarify your statement as far what teams appear to be coming together due to the lawsuit and who's behind it. I'll do the same. But, I don't believe you want that to become public knowledge.
The four leagues not named the NIFL are talking about banding together (for more than one reason). There are some common things there. The least of which is that all four were formed out of disdain for Shiver.
In the grand scheme of things, it would be great if efforts in the indoor game were made by all leagues to bring integrity and character to the operations again. Unfortunately, I believe that there needs to be changes in some leadership in order to obtain that.
From an article about the new Anchorage franchise:
"Alaska Professional Sports paid the $1 million AF2 requires to start a team, Weatherholt said. He has never managed a pro sports team."
"Alaska Professional Sports will need to pay about $180,000, Weatherholt said, to purchase the removable turf and netting required to play arena football."
"What makes (AF2) work is that it's affordable," he said. "The AF2 treats their customers well."
That's why the AF2 dubs its league as the Nordstrom of football, Weatherholt said."
WOW! I have some ocean front property for sell in Kansas. I think I found an investor.
As a friend to this ownership and don't believe they would lie to me on this or anything else, they did consider the af2 last season, but simply passed, wanting to give the NIFL another chance. If they weren't going to be truthful with me on this, they would simply tell me its none of my business like they have on some other issues.
