NPPL status for the All-Americans

July 28, 2008

After significant deliberation and discussion, the Pittsburgh All-Americans have decided to no longer compete in the NPPL and the seven man format. In a period in which teams are quickly becoming more competitive and the necessary efforts are required to be a top contender, the NPPL has befallen to an afterthought for the All-Americans. In 2008, the team has competed in the NXL, the Millennium Series and the NPPL. Nonetheless, the team has recently chosen to concentrate its entire efforts on the X-ball format as this method of focus will hopefully allow the All-Americans to become more competitive in two leagues rather than splitting duties among three. However, some of the Pittsburgh players will continue to guest with other organizations for the remaining 2008 NPPL season. The All-Americans wish only the best of regards to the league and the teams.

Not really the birthday surprise I was looking for. Shouldn't come as a surprise as they were barely able to hold on to their spot last year and, unless a miracle would have occured, were definately going to lose it this year. I, along with a lot of other fans, were hoping the addition of Kostin Federov and others would right the ship but he/they have not been the magic bullet. Playing three leagues is tough and they have been on the go for most of the year. Also some of the guys guest in other leagues, i.e. CXBL ect. Best for Adam to cut his loses and concentrate their efforts in the NXL.

The NPPL needs help, and they lost a team that potentially would have been that team. Its a smart move for the Philly squad, to go out and climb up to win the NXL!!!

Lets go baby!

not correct. the only reason bad company played in pro last year was because they had a deal worked out with the owner of elite. They were also no where near first place in semi pro when elite stoped playing. the spot will probably be sold for dirt cheap to someone who doesnt care if the spot gets relegated and just wants the exposure. Or potentially have it sold to a team that are confident that they can play on sunday twice in a row in the pro bracket, and i dont know of any?
