Intense Football League comes to Alaska

The Alaska Wild originally were scheduled to join the AF2 but something came up that caused them to withdraw from the league. They now have joined the Intense Football League, a league that consists of 6 Texas teams, and 1 Louisiana team. They have got to be crazy!

Alaska teams have to travel long distances no matter what league they're in. Look at the college hockey programs. Even going from Alaska to Colorado is an incredibly long trip for a weekend of hockey, and one of the teams plays in the league with a bunch of teams from places like Michigan and Ohio.

This is politcs/revenge pure and simple.

af2 has spent the offseason moving into several IFL markets (literally forcing one team out).

Therefore, the IFL has decided to try to show up the af2 by having the team in Alaska after the af2 belatedly remembered the Hawaii experiment and decided to minimize the number of franchises that could potentially blow up in their faces next year.

Still a dumba$$ move though...

Well, one team, Corpus Christi, had to leave their arena to one in Robstown until the new arena in Corpus Christi is built because the af2 team interested the current arena more(and who can blame them?). The other team, Laredo, just straight up left the IFL for the af2. Lubbock wasn't an IFL market yet, and the Copperheads team moving to Houston and the af2 actually freed up a market for the IFL. I'm not sure if this was as much "revenge" as it was just the IFL looking for an eighth team.

The Hammerheads organization had a working lease that they were in full compliance of with the arena at the time of being booted out.

The booting out had a lot more to do with the the arena management and the af2 having a relationship where the af2 can get the arena management to force other teams out of leases.

It should also be pointed out that the league's head honcho operated the Corpus Christi team.
