The 2013 AIF season was improved in general, admittedly not much of a standard with the league's entire western division plus Maryland & Macon keeling over during 2012 play. There were no turf condition debacles and no official league games were canceled once the season actually started. (Hampton at Washington was not an official league game.) Harrisburg, Cape Fear and (in late season) York all proved to be quality teams.
I agree that York turned into a pretty good team by the end of the season.It was good to see the Hbg/York rivalry develop this year. Having a good number of York fans in Hbg for the playoff game created a good atmosphere in what turned out to be a good game. Having such a close rival may help keep Hbg in the AIF(if they had any thoughts of ever leaving). Morris needs to cut the Virginia/West Virginia/wherever they are next year Badgers loose. They have brought nothing to the league. If he can build off Cape Fear, Hbg and York and put a quality team back in Baltimore next year it could be a decent league in 2014.
It's unclear. There is an expansion indoor football team announced called the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Soldiers but its owner wants to align with the CIFL, not the AIF.
He would be smart to stay as far away from John Morris as possible, he would only be setting himself up for failure
If you haven't seen it there are some interesting conversations on their FB page. Basically they have no home and are looking around. Not off to a good start.
Oh, such drama. FWIW to this forum, the venue in question not only doesn't have a deal with the Soldiers, it doesn't have a deal with any football team.
