    I just heard that Chicago has folded? I wonder how long this franchise will sit doormat for?

    Sources. We need sources.

    A bit curious but there was a thread about this subject in the NLL News and Rumors Forum this weekend. I remember replying to it and posting this story this past Sunday night:

    The funny thing is that thread is now gone. Maybe there is something more to this than meets the eye. :confused:

    No you don't need sources. You can believe it if you like, but it's true!

    or maybe the fact that the LFL was mentioned caused the thread to get pulled.

    Not true Anthony cosmo was in at a local sports store and was talking about how the team is looking on sunday so unless things have changed in a day i doubt it

    Yes, things do change in a day, just ask Coz.
    This is the NLL we are talking about not the NFL or NHL.

    There is that for sure, but then again there are a lot more crazy threads that have not been taken down. Still like to see another source or two.

    i have no info but the bigger concern is not the franchise but the arena. as i recall, loughery owns both and given the state of financing, one wonders if he is having troubles paying back the debt.

    And now the name calling starts from Philly fans!
    2 players have confirmed it.

    It's definitely not unprecendented. Remember Vancouver suspended operations around December 15, 2004 just a couple weeks before the 2005 season started. The league had to redo the schedule and the Ravens' players were dispersed within days.

    where's there smoke there's fire just because they are selling tickets doesn't mean anything hell my parents got wigns seaston tickets last year and a month later the league ''cancels'' the season.

    I wonder how much money Popeyedolyle wants to bet that Chicago is finished? Sounds like he has the inside track. Speaking of inside tracks, I would think the writers at NLL Insider would be on this one in a hurry, but nothing on the site just yet.

    this same thread was started a few days ago but the thread was removed in the news and rumors section

    i dunno though

    vancouvers situation was different

    they flat out had no home arena since thier lease wasnt renewed so they had to cease operations 2 weeks before the season

    If its true it would be announced...thier is not enough time for a dispersal draft seeing as training camps are done

    I saw the posted story before it was removed and it was dated April 22 2008. So the story seems to be dated. I would wait to see what plays out instead of jumping the gun.
