It certainly looks like we know why EA dumped the AFL license. Check out the link from the Rocky Mountain News:

"Arena Football League officials are expected to announce before the end of the week the league will suspend play for the 2009 season, the Rocky Mountain News has learned.

That will leave open dates at the Pepsi Center, where the AFL's Colorado Crush has played since 2003.

In summer 2002, the franchise was introduced by former Broncos quarterback John Elway, in a partnership with Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and Kroenke Sports Enterprises owner Stan Kroenke."

that's to bad, atleast there is another new league called the Indoor Football League, the Intense Football League merged with the United Indoor Football League. There will be 17 teams from all around the country. And more are to come in 2010. My favorite player is O.J Simpson from the Sioux City Bandits.

It looks like AF2 will continue though. I just read on the Tulsa Talons' site that the 2009 season would happen and the cancellation of the 2009 AFL season would have no effect on AF2.

It's disappointing indeed.

Hopefully it can make a comeback in '10.
