And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

Post by Pounder » Thu Dec 28, 2017 7:23 pm

...On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamplight o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted - nevermore!

Tampa suspended operations last week. Sounds like a league suspension comes next week, if not sooner.

They announced a schedule and everything.

And everybody makes the playoffs. And they play two game semifinal series, with aggregate points.

Fun.

If you ask me... a living death.

Time of actual death... two days ago.

The analysis over at another site is kind of interesting. Ted Leonsis gave this the three-year ride, wanted to see if the gambling angle would work for that league (and then incorporate it into his major teams), and decided it didn't work for the AFL. It sounds like Ron Jaworski couldn't handle it after the 2018 season (after we were trying to apply the kiss of death over here), and Leonsis kind of carried the bulk of the formed LLC for 2019 before finally describing the corpse as not merely dead but most completely dead.

And we mean Chapter 7 dead, not any of the myriad zombie forms of passing.
