Cleveland (cincinnati) Patriots

Post by perusix » Fri Nov 01, 2013 4:19 pm

Trying to clarify the new team. Are they playing in Cleveland or Cincinnati? or are they a travel team?

Using some supposition here, as I haven't spoken in person to anyone about it.

Warrensville Heights, where the article about the Patriots is listed as the city where it came from, is a Southeastern suburb of Cleveland. It houses a small, but suitable arena called the "Metroplex" when both the ABA Rockers, and PASL Vortex played games. I would think the AIF franchise may also intend to play there, rather than compete with the AFL Gladiators.

As far as the "Cincinnati" connection, I would guess the new franchise was dumped into the wrong city ID when it was first placed in the OSC database. Paul will fix it, once he catches it.

If I'm correct, I wish the Patriots luck, as I've always felt this area could support a non-AFL team in it's suburbs.
Adios, OSC message boards. (2007-2017)
