Milwaukee Iron Defy the Odds

So, this was pretty much the best picture of a Milwaukee Iron game that I could find, but it doesn't look like this will be a problem for long. Despite everything I've ever known to be true in this world, the Milwaukee Iron have somehow made it to a second season.

The feature of arena football was in question throughout the country after the Arena League folded but arenafootball2 was still alive. Well, now it looks like both leagues are a thing of the past as a new league, named Arena Football One, will kick off next April.

The Iron will be one of the 16 charter member teams in this league, some of which have been announced and some yet to be determined. Either way, it's actually cool to see that despite the rocky start, the Iron will be back for year two. Sure, the franchise has a lot of work to do before they can start to afford to pay the people that work for them, but at least they're trying. I made it down to one game last season, odds are I'll likely be back for year two.

In related news, there have been rumors that the Iron were looking into changing their name to the Milwaukee Mustangs, and going back to the colors and logo of the team that took Milwaukee by storm in the 90's. I think that would be cool as hell, and the name change alone would generate some interest. We'll see.
