Chicago and Milwaukee not in the same division, or even conference for that matter. Brilliant.

Head scratcher as Milwaukee is closer to the West than Chicago. I would have moved Tulsa to the South and Milwaukee to the Central. While taking Jacksonville or Georgia to the East

The West and South divisions makes sense. Even the Central makes some sense in terms of Tulsa being there (Tulsa is too far west for the other South division teams).

The East division looks odd because of Milwaukee being there since Chicago is farther east then Milwaukee. Switch that around and it works. Also, the hell happened to OKC? Is there something they aren't telling the fans?

From what i've heard, they will be moving to the SIFL. The SIFL will buy the AIFA and the AFL will buy the SIFL. In 2012 we will see a resurgence of the AF2

Edit: AFL confirms, but team hasn't released statement

So it looks like the Dawgz are leaving

I love the return of the old af2 operating strategy.

The AFL has been around for over 20 years before it went under and really that was largely due to mismanagement. With a much lower cost of operation that they have now I can't see why they can't last. We shall see how things go but I am optimistic. Either way I am excited to catch some more Storm games this year B)

Milwaukee Iron to be rebranded as the Mustangs.

Here's hoping that purple and teal identity does not return...

Now we just need the Vigilantes and the Force to get mediocre or above identities and this league may just be able to call itself professional.

*does happy dance* Good riddance, flaming gradient horsehead.

I wouldn't mind the old color scheme returning, because even though it is so stereotypically '90s, I thought the Mustangs implemented it really well. However, with the Voodoo back and doing purple to damn near perfection, it may be time to explore other options. Green, red, and silver, perhaps?

I have an odd feeling the Iron Horse Head will stay but instead we will get green and black

Because it's not any easier to operate at a lower cost?

Reel. Line. Mint?

But honestly, I don't see how this league is going to survive for much longer, as they seem to be repeating the same mistakes that they did before it went under the first time. Not to mention, that while the league will work in Spokane, Boise, Omaha, Iowa, Orlando, etc. why return to places like Chicago and Atlanta, where I hardly see any people at the game or who give a crap about Arena Football in an already saturated sports market like that.

In fairness, Chicago was drawing 14K+ per game in the old AFL, when I believe Don Levin, who owns the Wolves, was the primary owner. The new ownership has done practically zero marketing since taking over.
