The IFL team was irrelevant and nobody here watched them. They didn't even play in Denver, they played in the minor league barn up in Loveland. The real Crush were owned by billionaires and played in the major league arena in downtown Denver.Waiting for Fami to chime in and do his usual IFL bash comment. He hasn't been the same since the Colorado Ice/Crush folded after going winless in their several playoff appearances. Colorado's best years were with the AFL as they were a competitive team in a better league (I do miss them nets in the AFL as the Rattlers used them several times to pull victories at the last second).
Sorry but the IFL is trash, it has always been trash, and it's only been getting worse as the also trash outdoor leagues are taking all their players.
Indoor football as a legitimate operation died in 2008. Then from 2010-2019 a semi-competent zombie operation took over. But it's just been getting worse and worse ever since.
Yes, the actual IFL game sucks without the 8th man and the nets and all that. But the main problem is the league itself. They play in trash arenas in shithole towns with clownshoes ownership and the players make less than McDonald's employees (that is not a joke). Rio Rancho, New Mexico? Prescott Valley, Arizona? Sioux Falls, South Dakota? Ashwaubenon? Henderson? Frisco? Worcester? Moline, Illinois? C'mon man, these aren't even AA baseball towns.
