It 'looks' like the Charleston SandSharks are attempting to revive themselves in the NIFL next year.
One interesting bit from their website...they can't get an arena deal (I wonder why?) so they are planning to play all of their games outdoors (no venue named yet).
Do the owners of this team even speak English as their native tongue?Carolina Sandsharks Heading outdoors in 2008
Thursday, 30 August 2007
The Carolina Sand Sharks are heading outdoors, yes outdoors.. The principal owner announced that the team will play outdoors in 2008. The decision came after several attempts to secure the North Charleston Coliseum for a reasonable leasing price for 7 home games . It was realized that every indoor programs that attempted to play in the coliseum failed not because the could not make, but simply because the lease for rental is extremely to high and teams are not able to profit or break even. The Sand Sharks will pay all of it employees including staff and football players. The team announce the stadium location soon.. "GET EXCITED"
Wonder if this lays credence to the NIFL and CG registering "National Independent Football League" as a new name.
Curious, Paul, on when/if the NIFL will even drop off OSC? I mean, this is sub-APFL antics, and yet the APFL has yet to crack OSC.
I remember a while ago the Women's leagues were on here en masse, even without them being professional. And despite them now being gone--for the most part--the junior league hockey sections are still up and I think it's time that a distinction be made; either the NIFL gets booted from here (to the great detriment of comedy it produces) or the APFL finally gets its due and is added.
The NIFL belongs in the special "Walks Like A Ponzi Scheme, Acts Like A Ponzi Scheme" section.
I understand the NIFL is a great comedy and the NIFL forums are never dull, but I think if this charade is to continue that maybe OSC can at least add an "Other" section for indoor football on the fringe. Something for the Utah teams, APFL, NAIFL, ANIFL, IIFL, ABCDIFL, etc...
Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Just create another sub-forum at the bottom called "Other Indoor Leagues" for the NIFL, APFL, IIFA, etc. On the other hand, the General Discussion section can also serve the same purpose.
