So let's see, what are the odds of Harrisburg and Cape Fear in the title game again this year.....looks like a no brianer to me...in my opinion, there is nothing but fill-in fluff teams for certain individuals to make it to the title game over and over and over. The sad thing is, there are good players and coaches on both those teams...and I'm sure others sprinkled here and there on other teams...however, its the league itself that's a joke.
Again, I will never bash a player or coach that have the guts to lace 'em and play the game. It's just so many get screwed over and over. I would respect it more if the league said, all teams are league owned and it would be done with. All teams would be equal. But its not. It's clear what team's are favored....clearly.
I am curious, does anyone know what the league dues are for this debacle of a league?
What about player salaries? I heard $200 a game. Is that right?
I would also assume if I was Roc City and looked at my travel schedule and compared it to Harrisburg, you'd think the league would assist them or be a bit more accomodating with their scheduling and the costs associated with it. Again, to me it's obvious who the two favored teams....and two more coming in 2014....
but as they say Buyer Beware.

Worse than the final seasons of the NIFL? Worse than the ABA? Worse than the EIEIFL? Worse than the Mid-Atlantic Hockey League? (I realize the bar is set pretty low for minor league sports).
That may be the case, but fans are still being charged full price for a game in which the final score will probably be like 72-6. Many of the games the Stampede played last year were against these semi pro outdoor teams like the Tri State Redhawks and Virginia Badgers, and they just weren't competitive. I'm hoping the AIF is more then just Harrisburg and Cape Fear this year. York looks like they have signed alot of indoor football vets, I recognized probably10-12 names currently on their roster so it looks like they will atleast be a legit indoor team.I guess we will have to see about Roc City, Wash and WV. I just can't see that the league could be any worse then last year.
But who knows, maybe they are making money? They're charging guys $75-$100 just to try out for teams for instance, they probably drain the finances before "going broke".
