This facility was/is home to the IGL (Indoor Gridiron League). There is room for maybe 50 fans (and that's a bit generous) behind a plastic wall that sits behind 1 endzone. Unless they plan on purchasing bleachers and installing them somehow (but really there's no room to put them). You can see the photos yourself on their facebook.
Is this another pay-to-play team, where they sell the players on the dream of how this is an opportunity to advance. It's sad. Moorestown is a very affluent community, so maybe the owner has deep pockets to cover all the expenses, however, if not, I see this team in financial ruin before the season even starts.
I guess they needed a fill-in team now that Harrisburg has wised up and jumped ship!
Hi DCA, a link to the article is on the team's website.....Yikes....up top. It's a leaguelineup website. Nothing against leaguelineup but as a "professional" team's website - but then again look at the League's site. Of course, this is just my opinion but come on.
Here's the article:
Home stadium just announced!
The Moorestown Saints are proud to announce that the Pinelands Sports Complex will be our home stadium and practice field. The Complex is located off of Rt. 70 in Southampton, NJ. Come on out and join us for practices and cheer the team onto victory!!! Stay tuned for the up coming practice schedule and the release of the 2014 season game schedule.
Hi Al, You brought up a very good point. This could very well be an infringement on the New Orleans Saints copyright. I'm not an attorney but they do appear to be using the same logo and team moniker in the same industry - football. If they were a not-for-profit team, I believe they could basically use it but they are saying they are a for-profit "professional" team, therefore, they are making potential earnings on that name - in the same industry. Again, I am not an attorney but based on my past experiences, I do believe there could definitely be an issue. But ultimately, that's an issue for the legal teams to decide. Very good point.
