AAFL seeking new owner, or postponement



Not exactly a shocking development, but the All-American Football League, which had a handful of USF alums and would have played a game in Tampa this spring, may not even make it to its first game.

The league sent out an e-mail to media members Thursday announcing that it was seeking a new majority owner to "salvage" its 2008 season, and if no such owner were found in the very immediate future, the league's launch would be postponed to 2009. The league has yet to land a TV contract and ticket sales are reportedly disappointing, leading to more financial issues.

This barely involves USF, but I figured I'd post an update. ... More to come later today ...
