The league is hopeful that they can return as early as this upcoming season apparently. I already covered their struggles with attendance so no need to dig that up again but there was a promising statement in all of this. Not a direct quote but something that looks good for those of us that want a team in Boston.
Butera said he and other AFL owners and officials want to improve the league's regional presence in the Northeast, and Pittsburgh remains a big part of those plans.To me this is great because I though they had completely forgotten that the Northeast existed since nothing ever did come from that NYC team rumor from last year. The current before yesterday Northeast presence of the league include only 2 teams Philadelphia and the now folded Pittsburgh. Not much of a presence is it? Hopefully they get the power going again and start working on getting a NYC team and a Boston team to establish an eastern block of teams and a potential rivalry. One can only hope.
