Wow! I had absolutely NO IDEA that the only reason the Storm isn't playing is that their arena is being renovated!! (Where'd they get that "information"?)

My hunch was Amalie Arena was undergoing renovations after the 2017 season.

No, the Storm management just announced that they were "suspending operations", presumably until conditions arose which allowed for the operation to be profitable. Now, those of us familiar with Arenaspeak know that means is pretty much the equivalent of "we quit", but most sports media types (those who are even aware that the AFL exists) seem to take it at face value or something close thereto. And, in the defense of all of that, if the franchise has been either surrendered or revoked, that is a quite recent development, and I think would've been noted somewhere here on the board had it actually happened (yet).
