Arena League to Suspend Operation?

By JC De La Torre

It appears that the Arena Football League may be on the verge of financial collapse, ending the 17 year run of the Tampa Bay Storm in the bay area.

The Rocky Mountain News is reporting that the AFL is canceling the 2009 season and the Philadelphia Inquirer and Denver Post paint an even darker picture that if the league cannot come up with financing by December 19th, the league will fold.

The New Orleans VooDoo have folded, the Orlando Predators were just quickly sold and league commissioner David Baker resigned.

According to Tampa Bay.com, the Storm spokesperson Jim Robinson said, "We're preparing for the 2009 season just as we have for each of our previous seasons."
