Sonds like changes are in the future. I would like to see more team/ owner involvement, and I think that was always part Thom's 3 year plan.
Now the Albany Columbus rilvary may have been kicked up a notch.
Speaking of rings, the Panthers wont get theirs until the beginning of next season, but Carter says he doesnt plan to hand them out in a ceremony in front of another team, like rival Columbus the 2010 league champs did in front of Albany during the pregame of their last regular-season meeting of the year.
Were working on a ring design now and we hope to have them by the start of next season, Carter said. But, no, we wont do what Columbus did to us. Well have more class than that. Thats not the kind of operation we run.
I think Albany is just talking, still weighing options. If they have already decided to stay SIFL without any of the above already fixed or given reasons to believe these things fixed they are not very smart and will get what they get, good or bad.

Trenton already advertising season tickets for 2012 but no indication what league they will play in.I dont even think they have a league affiliation on their website except for 2011 sifl standings. I mean if you cant link or promote the league you own on your site, is it a sign? If the SIFL is in financial trouble, the AIFA is going to be starting off in the hole also. Are both of these ventures destined for failure. You know Morris isnt going to pony up big bucks or go after "big time" national sponsorship. He "owns" two teams already. He failed twice already at this. His teams are failing. One would have thought after all the speculation, Morris would have already flipped the switch when the SIFL season ended or is this just a ploy to see if there is any sucker willing to align themselves with him. Trenton is BONDO's team, should be interesting to see whjat this guy ill do. Cant see him staying in SIFL, which he himself was part of the problem as a league owner and failed merger. No talk of eastern expansion or are they going to play one another four times again. If all just seems a bit f'd up.
Some good questions. I would love to know the whole truth to the SIFL ownership thing. I am not sure who the controling party is.

Now that's funny Gusher since throughout most of this SIFL season there appeared to be nobody at the controls. I know rumored Bondo bought in and this rumor widely spread. Might be true, might not, but if not nobody from official SIFL sources have ever stepped up to deny it.
