The Indoor Football League has risen from the ashes this offseason. Three franchises from the rival Champions Indoor Football League have joined the fold and a fourth could be on its way. The Bismark Bucks, Quad City SteamWheelers,Bloomington Edge and possibly the Omaha Beef are legends in the indoor game and there arrival will create rivalaries that will build interest in the league going forward. In addition too these cities the league added a second team in Arizona, that will be called the Tucson Sugar Skulls. This team will be owned by Arizona coach Kevin Guy. Guy is a tgrue professional, so you can rule out any conflict of interest controversy that might develop. The leagues new addition figure to strengthen it in the eyes of the television networks. The league almost made it to the airways a few years back, it is now rearmed and ready to be the kind of league many thought it would be. The league has often been compared to the National Football League because the scores are somewhat inline with the senior circuit. The league has great rivarlies that can result from its new acquistions. Rivarlies make football, if the league can expand on these additions watch out for it in the future.
The Edge are still independent. We have a source which has said they may be up for sale, which could delay any league action. Another source has told us that the Beef are kind of in a holding pattern searching for a new owner.
There are still a lot of questions wen it comes to the Sugar Skulls and Kevin Guy. If he only owns the Skulls, and leaves the operation of the Skulls up to his wife (COO) and Mike Feder (executive director), then there may not be a conflict. But what happens when the teams propose a trade with one another? I've spoken with my inside source, who told me the league is vetting that sort of thing.
I've noticed a trend in your posts about the potential for television exposure. Really, unless it is some obscure off shoot of a cable sports channel, I don't see that happening for several years, if even at all. I would predict that the league will continue to stream games on youtube as they've done the past couple of seasons, or perhaps find another streaming source. Having nine (or more) teams in 2019 shows some very strong progress of the IFL I like what they've done this off season.
