Uncertain FutureEdit

The cancellation of the Arena Football League's 2009 season has left the future of many af2 teams up in the air. 11 of the 25 af2 teams have confirmed that they will be joining a new arena football league, Arena Football 1. The Florida Firecats are not one of those teams, and it is unclear whether they will continue to play in the af2, seek another arena football league, or suspend operations.

The Firecats do not seem interested in joining AF1 and may be trying to join another indoor football league instead. Commissioner Jerry Kurz says the Firecats have yet to apply, and team president Chris Vallozzi was quoted as calling AF1 "an upstart league" without the AFL's 20 years of prior history, also saying they'd "keep all options open with all leagues."[1]
