(Dayton, OH) - Effective immediately, the Dayton Bulldogs Indoor Football Franchise will cease play at the Ervin J. Nutter Center.

"Due to failure to uphold the terms and conditions of their contract with Wright State University's Ervin J. Nutter Center, the Dayton Bulldogs Franchise will suspend operation at our facility until further notice," stated John Siehl, Executive Director of the Nutter Center.

After the fall

After the apparent failing of Rapid City, we get this news. NIFL teams have to be seriously questioning their future right about now. It would appear the house of cards affect may be sweeping over the NIFL today. I'm really at a loss as to what to say right now. I know the good teams will survive regardless of what happens with the NIFL.

Another nightmare

If Rapid City and Dayton are both gone, this creates a schedule nightmare that is unbelievable. If Palm Beach, Montgomery and/or Tennessee should fall out now, the entire schedule would be lost and it would be start from scratch time.

Fire watch update

Sources report that heavy fires burning around the country are moving too fast towards Louisiana now. Emergency fire crews have been called out, but it appears like the smart move might be to pull all crews back to a safe area and let this one burn till its out once and for all.

Weather forecast

Official NIFL weather report and fire control updates. NIFL fire crews are hard at work trying to contain some of the fires, while they are just letting some burn themselves out. In some areas, local fire crews have been left on their own to battle the blazes. Reports from our watch towers are no new sightings, but the weather forecast includes a 90% chance of thunderstorms over the next eleven weeks. Additional fire crews have been put on alert that their services could be needed at a moments notice and should be prepared to go anywhere in the NIFL forest. As always, we have our own spotters that will be on the front lines covering the disasters as they happen.
