the CIF is moving forward with lawsuits against the Bloomington Edge, West Michigan Ironmen, the IFL, and Arizona Rattlers.


Hopefully, the CIF will see that they're screwed and settle the lawsuits...

Could not agree more.

Definitely... if the CIF decides to pursue those lawsuits, they'll go bankrupt, and some of the former CIF teams will go to the IFL, but will the other teams follow? Probably not. Will they form their own league? That's possible... it's also possible the IFL will form a developmental league (IFDL?) consisting of primarily former CIF teams, although that's not too likely.

I tend to agree, but IFL should just target the larger cities that at least have a shot of getting 3500+ a game at decent prices (Omaha, Wichita, QuadCity) The others can stay in CIF and any weak IFL teams could slide over.

Its a long shot but I say the entire Arena/Indoor game needs a governing body. Even a loose one to help navigate through these issues and take a big picture approach.

With how disfunctional ALL arena/indoor leagues have been, I think just agreeing on whether or not nets should be up would be a breaking point.
