The creation of the PIFL

Post by Tatonka » Fri Jun 02, 2006 3:21 am

The Professional Indoor Football League was created with four separate, but connected, goals. The goals, create a league that addresses the major concerns of teams, players, sponsors and fans.

Wonderful, another indoor league... when do we have enough? Granted, we could do without a couple of the existing leagues now, but at this rate, there will be more leagues than there are teams in each league.

Some free advice:

First and foremost:

1. No clowns. No shady figures. Yes, create a public blacklist like the ECHL does. You shaft a player or local business, you are blacklisted, period. (I can think of a few.)
2. Absolute deadlines. No arena lease in hand, no team. AT LEAST 4 months lead time.
3. PREPAID RENT. Leave NO doubts the teams start and finish the season.
4. Expansion fees INCLUDE turf, padding, uniforms, etc. Discount for transplanted teams.
5. Agree with 4 teams. You could do 12 games in a division. Of course more is better.
6. Yes, speed up the game. 3 hours is great for NFL football but in an arena with our kids it drags WAY too long.
7. Pay to play, pay more to win, like XFL.
8. People running PA and Game Ops that actually know what the hell they are doing.

I'm sure I can think of more.
Never make anyone a priority that makes you an option.

Gotcha dialed in SignGuyDino. That's why there's a new league. Tatonka, if you have a better idea, bring it! Nothing else is working right now for the teams.

Sounds like they are looking for disgruntled NIFL/AIFL owners. If they truly are on the up-and-up, it could be the solution.

Coaches/players can still walk if they haven't been paid in full.

I don't know what this means? Each team in a four-team division plays each other 4 times?
If you don't let the people with the money know you prefer the NIFL game system, you won't see any stable leagues copying the NIFL game system for your enjoyment!

Name May Be A Problem

If my memory is correct, Carolyn Shiver owns the name PIFL having purchased it along with the various patents from Dick Seuss. You may want to check into that.

CS has no rights to the name, nor has she ever. All she ever received from Mr. Suess was the rights to the so called patent, nothing more, nothing less.

Its a shame the address of the PIFL is a college campus. College kids I'm assuming.

Not sure where you got the address but, it is not a college campus. Nice try though. ;)
