Tuesday December 9, 2008

NEW YORK – The dates for the Dispersal Draft and the beginning of the free-agent signing period have been postponed until further notice, the League announced today. The Dispersal Draft was scheduled to take place today and free agency was scheduled to begin on Thursday.

“The AFL is working on long-term structural improvements which have unfortunately delayed some important events, such as the release of the 2009 schedule, the Dispersal Draft, and the beginning of free agency,” said Acting Commissioner ED POLICY. “We thank our fans for their enthusiasm for these events and ask them to be patient a little longer while we finalize our long-term improvements. All AFL teams are working towards winning ArenaBowl XXIII.”
