S11/S12 OFFSEASON






BREAKING NEWS:  HIFL OWNERS STUNNED BY LOOPHOLE IN NO-COMPETE CLAUSE IS EXPLOITED BY XFLPA, MAKING MARIOTA TO NEW YORK A VERY LIKELY MOVE!

KANSAS CITY ---  After an off-season focused on retaining talent and insulating the HIFL from XFL poaching, things have gotten interesting.  In the weeks since the surprise signings of XFL players Eddie Pope and Christopher Chandler by Kansas City and Rapid City respectively the XFL and the XFLPA began to explore ways to retaliate against the flagship football league, and it now appears they have found the way to do just that.

A source inside the HIFL's legal team has confirmed that the language in the no-compete clause ratified by the HIFLPA during the HIFL Summit has left a loophole that players desiring to accept deals in the XFL can exploit. 

"We made a mistake, no way around it." the source tells ESPN. "We stated that any player not signed to the HIFLPA exclusively would not be able to breech their contract with a HIFL club, but we did not specify that the players could not sign with the XFLPA separately, at any given time, and put themselves in a position to walk away from a HIFL contract so long as they did not seek any continued compensation from that club. ...We really dropped the ball on this one."

While the league is working hard to make another agreement with the HIFLPA to close this loophole, the HIFLPA clearly has the leverage and could likely demand another compromise or concession from the GM's and Owners, but in the meantime, it is confirmed that Marcus Mariota has indeed signed with the XFLPA as well as the HIFLPA, and is now one step closer to signing with the New York Champions.

SEASON 12 PRE-SEASON






HOLDOUT: LYNX DOMINANT DT SU'A FETU SAYS HE WILL NOT PLAY WITHOUT A NEW CONTRACT!


ST. PAUL -- With training camp in the books and players ready to take the field for the two most meaningless games of their season, one player has been advised by his agent Bobby Shapiro to sit out any and all games unless he is rewarded with a new more lucrative contract.

Fetu, a 4-star defensive tackle out of the ADIDAS Football Academy, is on one of the most one-sided contracts in the league.  Only making $750K per season, he is the only non-special teams (or fullback) in the league to rank as one of his teams top 10 players, while making under $1MM per season, a figure that Agent Bobby Shapiro says "Must Increase" if GM Eli wants to have the 325lbs run stuffer on the field for his defense in 2021 and beyond.

"Su'a makes the linebackers life easier. He doesn't have the sexy numbers of an interior pass-rusher, but he is a force multiplier on the grid iron and deserves to be paid for his talent and not like some bargain bin player imported from a team-financed training academy.  He is only making these soup kitchen wages because of the fact he didn't play at a university, and that is wrong." Shapiro said at a small press conference outside of the Lynx indoor training facility in Minneapolis.

St. Paul has cap space to make a deal, but some wonder if GM Eli values the type of DT Fetu represents, or if he would prefer to replace Fetu with a pass-rushing DT which has been a staple of the new GM's former teams, due to Cleveland Head Coach Jason Blitzer's pass rush philosophy.

CHARLOTTE --- Charlotte Crowns owner Lena "The Queen" Cersei has been fined heavily by the HIFL League Office due to the team neglecting to comply with the league's roster requirements despite a penalty after training camp.  The penalty, while not affecting the team's salary cap figure or bonus pool, has cost the team its larger than life mascot "Gregor" The Elephant.

Officials close to the franchise have indicated that The Queen is not pleased with the latest setbacks.

After what has been widely documented as the most embarrassing and unprofessional on-field moment in HIFL history, and possibly the most disgraceful incident since GM Powers' infamous scandal, the HIFL League office is sending a loud and clear message that on-field brawling will not be tolerated.

After a heated and highly contested contest between two of the most bitter rivals in the HIFL, the Alabama Nighthawks and Atlanta Warriors reached a boiling point with only a minute to play in Overtime of a 31-31 ball game in Mobile, Alabama.  While few flags flew during the game, several hits from Atlanta thumpers Peter Haney and Bruiser Elliott drew the ire of the Alabama bench and coaching staff, several dangerous hits were either made or attempted, primarily against reigning league MVP Jamie Ortega leading Alabama Jon Rudino to demand the referees get involved and protect the players on the field; later in the 4th quarter linebacker James Brown was ejected for a late hit on Ortega, which only fueled accusations of targeting.  Haney, who was handed the biggest suspension of the day, was seen on camera throwing punches at players and then striking an official who was pulling him off of the pile, a punch that could cost him his entire season.

The fight, which will not be discussed in detail here, resulted in the following punishments.


ALABAMA:

Suspensions:
QB - Dak Prescott - 2 Games
TE - Stephen Green - 1 Game
WR - Oliver Giles - 4 Games
OT - Noah Rose - 10 Games
DT - Philip Sanderson - 4 Games
CB - Sticky Pitts - 1 Game
HC - Jon Rudino - 2 Games


Fines:
Team fined $1MM
Each Suspended player fined $50K per game suspended (plus game check)


ATLANTA:

Suspensions:
S - Peter Haney - 14 Games
DT - Bruiser Elliott - 4 Games
OT - Manuel Linkous - 1 Game
WR - Jose Zambrano - 4 Games
DE - James Fellows - 4 Games
CB - Timothy Brown - 1 Game
HC - Henry Munoz Jr - 2 Games


Fines:
Team fined $1.5MM
Each Suspended player fined $50K per game suspended (plus game check)



The Officiating Crew for the game, including head referee Vincent Kantsee have been suspended for 6 weeks and will be on probation with the league following their reinstatement. 

In other news, The XFL has capitalized on the latest black eye for the HIFL, using the bad PR to gain new viewers and attract the family crowd.

TURNED AND BURNED?  BARONS ORGANIZATION AND FAN BASE IRATE AS ST. PAUL POKES FUN AFTER TOP GUN NIGHT UPSET!

After a difficult week in the High Impact Football League that saw chaos break loose in a tense rivalry game between the Atlanta Warriors and Alabama Nighthawks, it would be easy to overlook another shocking, although supremely less controversial, outcome that occurred. The St. Paul Lynx headed into the Flight Deck on Top Gun Night a massive underdog and with all of the odds stacked against them. Most football fans had probably changed the channel to another game, or perhaps another program, by the time the Lynx found themselves down 17-0. But what happened afterward is the sort of thing that can spark a maligned team to go on an unexpected run.

If you’re unsure what it is exactly that I’m talking about, all you would need to do is look around the Milwaukee area today to find a number of Billboards in St. Paul Lynx blue reminding the Barons fans of what the final score was on Top Gun Night, and just how exactly their team was turned and burned by the underdog Lynx (27-24 in favor of the Lynx was the final for those who are out of the loop). However, those Billboards seem to be only the beginning of a public relations campaign rolled out by new Lynx GM Eli Weber.

Spotted on the campus of the Milwaukee Barons facility were numerous individuals dressed as the Lynx mascot delivering flight lessons to the Barons players and coaching staff. It is even said that owner Carmine Barone was presented one as he was held up by security as he arrived at the Barons facilities this morning. When asked for a comment, one of the individuals commented that “GM Weber felt like the Barons might need flying lessons after crashing and burning at the flight deck in such spectacular fashion.”

Think that’s rubbing in the victory a little too much? Well, it doesn’t end there. Lynx QB Aaron Kitchen as scene wearing a “Top Gun” bomber jacket emblazoned with his last name on it. Rumor has it fans of the St. Paul Lynx will be able to purchase replica bomber jackets for themselves at the Lynx Team Store to celebrate with the organization after gaining their first Top Gun Night victory at the expense of the Milwaukee faithful.

If you ask me, this is what rivalries should really be about and you can bet GM Strike and the Barons will be looking for revenge later this season when they pay the Lynx a visit.

BREAKING NEWS: ALABAMA WINS APPEALS ON SEVERAL PLAYER SUSPENSIONS, COACH RUDINO REMAINS BANNED FOR 2 WEEKS!

NEW YORK -- After hiring a highly acclaimed legal team to help with damage control in both the league and PR aspects of the organization stemming from the massive brawl last weekend in Mobile, Alabama; the Alabama Nighthawks were informed this afternoon by the HIFL League Office that their appeals had all been heard and ruled on. 

While the league did not back off of its suspension of head coach Jon Rudino, nor did it endorse a reduction in punishment for GM Pancho, the league did retract or reduce the suspensions on nearly every player involved.  Here is a breakdown of the appeals hearing:

Noah Rose (10 games) -- reduced to 7 games
Philip Sanderson (4 games) -- reduced to 3 games
Oliver Giles (4 games) -- reduced to 2 games
Dak Prescott (2 games) -- upheld
Stephen Green (1 game) -- withdrawn
Sticky Pitts (1 game)   -- withdrawn

While bye weeks are not included in suspension time, Alabama has to feel that the hearing went as well as possible all things considered.  Meanwhile the legal team now shifts focus to the public eye for the days to come.

BREAKING NEWS: LEAGUE INVESTIGATION COMES TO AN ABRUPT CLOSE AFTER FS HANEY ADMITS TO LYING TO COMMISSIONER, CLEARS GM LUCAS OF ANY WRONG DOING WHILE ADMITTING TO ACCEPTING MONEY FROM FORMER HEAD COACH MUNOZ AS PART OF SECRET BOUNTY. 

ATLANTA -- In what can only be described as a shocking turn of events, the league brought a close to its investigation of the motives behind the recent brawl between Atlanta and Alabama players that at one point resulted in suspended FS Peter Haney accusing GM Xavier Lucas of being guilty of order a hit on reigning league MVP Jamie Ortega. 

The accusations from Haney were enough to start a formal investigation from the HIFL League Office and its top-flight investigation team, but those resources were called off after Peter Haney surprisingly stepped forward both on Social Media and to the Commissioner privately to admit that he had lied about GM Lucas' involvement in the entire ordeal, instead saying that GM Lucas had simply said to "make Ortega run and hide." which he admits he interpreted as making the QB uncomfortable..  Haney says that the idea to intentionally injure Ortega did not come up until the day of the teams final practice when head coach Henry Munoz Jr approached him in private and told him "I need you to take out Ortega.  Get him out of the game and I'll make sure you get a big payday"

These accusations have lit the football world on fire, the league quickly reacted, calling for Henry Munoz to come in for a second interview but the recently resigned head Coach has reportedly fled the country and is believed to be in hiding in China.

With Munoz fleeing the United States, the league announced that Munoz would be banned from the HIFL for life and that Haney would serve his full season-long suspension but would be allowed back in the off-season if he met certain guidelines laid out in a closed door session with the Commissioner.

Meanwhile GM Lucas was issued a public apology from Haney, bringing the end to what is surely to be a much talked about saga for a franchise that will look to quickly distance itself from the dark clouds that now reside over the entire organization.

Warriors owner Barbara Baracuda released a short statement simply saying:

"The Atlanta Warriors organization accepts the ruling of the HIFL League office and has elected to uphold the current suspension of GM Lucas which will be for two weeks. Once the suspension has been served he will be free to resume his day-to-day activities as GM but future incidents will not be tolerated."

The Rumor Mill has already began to churn however that GM Kirk and another candidate could be brought into ATL HQ for an interview, further fueling the fire that GM Lucas' job security is getting very thin.

XFL OWNERS TOUT WILD SUCCESS AS RATINGS CONTINUE TO CLIMB AS LEAGUE CONTEMPLATES SHIFTING FROM SATURDAY GAMES TO SUNDAY TO GO HEAD TO HEAD WITH HIFL

STANFORD --- After yet another high-water mark in ratings for every single XFL game in Week 3, the leagues owners have announced that they are in negotiations with XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck and their network partners to potentially shift XFL Gameday from Saturday evenings to Sunday afternoon and evening in direct competition with the High Impact Football League.

"We have had to step on the toes of our friends at the NCAA, and we believe that moving to Sundays in the near future vs. staying on and stealing ratings from these prestigious and respected universities is the right decision.  This has nothing to do about how well our product has been on the field and how well received we have been, it has nothing to do with our competition's game times, this is strictly to help the NCAA and show that not all football leagues put themselves first when it comes to the treatment of the NCAA and our collegiate athletes."  Luck said in a statement after a closed-door sit down with the 8 XFL team owners.

A move to sundays would clearly further intensify the rivalry between the HIFL and XFL, giving even more exposure to the younger league and further help entice disgruntled or underutilized talents from the HIFL to pursue a career with the XFL.    In the last week QB and former MVP Marcus Mariota signed with the New York Champions and further more controversial safety Peter Haney has signed with the Atlanta Avengers and is set to start this weekend when Atlanta takes on the Los Angeles Xtreme in LA.

The HIFL media team was not available for comment, but one unnamed source spoke off the record indicating that the league was not concerned with the moves, but more concerned about the potential loss of draft prospects and free agents due to the declining reputation of the HIFL's General Managers as a whole.

LEAGUE'S LEADER IN QB RATING, CALEB SMOAK COULD BE DONE FOR THE SEASON, STUNS FANS WITH GUTSY EFFORT TO PLAY THROUGH TORN ACL AFTER UGLY FIRST QUARTER HIT!

CLEVELAND -- Not known as a mobile quarterback to begin with, the legend of future hall of fame QB Caleb Smoak only grew this week in what could be his final game of the 2021 Season.  On Cleveland's first drive of the game, Smoak attempted a hand off to running back Ezekiel Elliott but dynamic Stallions' edge rusher Sydney Council made the tackle to blow up the play nearly instantly, sending Elliott crashing back into the side of his quarterback's knee, crumpling Smoak to the turf.  After a television timeout, Smoak returned to the field of play with his knee heavily wrapped, a move later decision later revealed by Head Coach Jason Blitzer to be "100% Caleb's decision, he basically refused the bloody MRI and said he wasn't leaving the bloody field."

Smoak's offensive line went on to not allow a sack for the entirety of the game and Smoak proceeded to throw three touchdowns while allowing new offensive coordinator Mumbasa to lean on the run game to protect the clearly injured knee. 

At halftime the medical staff diagnosed Smoak with a torn ACL, but could not convince the 10 year veteran to hand over the reigns of the offense to young backup Cody Northstar.    After the game medical staff attempted to schedule surgery, but Smoak is requesting that GM Franchise finance a second opinion, saying "I believe I can take a few weeks off and be back at full strength."

Around the league, from twitter and other forms of social media to interviews and press conferences players, coaches, and fans alike showed their respect for the heart and determination of "the gutsiest quarterback in football."

BREAKING NEWS -- GM TOM OUT IN CHARLOTTE AS CERSEI HIRES GM KIRK IN SURPRISE MOVE!


CHARLOTTE --- "When you play the game of thrones you win or you die." said Lena Cersei, short-tempered owner of the 0-4 Charlotte Crowns.   Cersei was speaking at the podium after the surprising move was made to replace often absent General Manager GM Tom.

"GM Tom tried very hard early on in his time under the Crown, but his inability to satisfy the media's requirements or to properly correct the problems within this once proud organization were simply no longer acceptable.  While some may view my new choice as Hand of the Queen to be..  ...controversial, I believe that winning is more important than anything else, and I demand success from my Hand." Cersei said prior confirming the rumor that former Eastern Conference Giant, GM Kirk, had been hired to right the ship and build Charlotte into a true contender.

"GM Kirk will be free to make over this roster and organization as he sees fit." Cersei continued during this franchise-altering conference.  "I have come to an agreement with Head Coach Vic LeBlanc and his coordinators to remain on board for the remainder of the season unless GM Kirk elects to terminate them, which he may choose to do so at his own discretion.  ..This the dawning of a new era in Charlotte, and the Queen City will find its Crown once again."

GM Kirk is expected to return with an introductory press conference later this week.

BREAKING NEWS:  AFTER MEETING WITH KNEE SPECIALIST IN NEW YORK, CLEVELAND QB CALEB SMOAK'S DIAGNOSIS CHANGED!


CLEVELAND -- It was just a few days ago that it appeared the season was over for Mustangs quarterback Caleb Smoak, but after GM Franchise invested in sending the franchise cornerstone to see knee specialist Dr. Rothschild in New York City, Cleveland officials have been notified that the second opinion was for the best.   A spokesperson for the Mustangs released a statement this afternoon saying:

"We are pleased to announce that Dr. Rothschild has concluded that Caleb Smoak will not require surgery on his injured knee, and should be out for only 4 weeks. 

We envision Caleb returning to the field as soon as week 9 against the New Jersey Dragons, barring any setbacks."

The news could not have been better for a Cleveland team that has had to lean on their star QB as RB Ezekiel Elliott has struggled to find his groove early in the season.

BREAKING NEWS: GM LUCAS OUT AS GENERAL MANAGER IN ATLANTA AFTER MASSIVE PAPERWORK CONUNDRUM WITH LEAGUE OFFICE!


ATLANTA --- The Atlanta Warriors have been one of the most talked about teams in the HIFL this season, off of the field.   Whether it was league penalties, bounty scandals, or coaching/GM drama the Warriors have been a whirlwind of Soap-Opera-like drama and after GM Xavier Lucas' latest fumble, team owner Barbra Barracuda has finally seen enough.

"It was brought to my attention that Mr. Lucas attempted to make a signing that would have either put us over roster limits, or over the bonus-pool cap, either of which was set to push our franchise into another $5MM penalty, so action was taken to avoid the error but at this time we here in Atlanta have decided it is best for our franchise's short and long term future to move on from Mr. Lucas and finish this season in a different setting."  Mrs. Barracuda said at a press conference earlier this morning.

GM Lucas was said to have fired recently promoted Shannon Bowman, but paperwork was never submitted formally.   GM Lucas then attempted to hire Team Great Britain head coach Jim Bond, a quarterback guru who first tasted HIFL experience as a scouting director with the Miami Killer Whales.     With GM Lucas gone and Mrs. Barracuda stepping into the role of active GM, the contract offer to Jim Bond was retracted, however after things ended as sourly as they did with Coach Bowman, the former Offensive Coordinator turned interim head coach has elected to resign and step away from the team despite the opportunity to return as Head Coach. 

Atlanta now moves on without an experienced General Manager and is likely to go into full fire-sale mode heading towards the upcoming bye week and the eventual Trade Deadline.   The team is left with 11.625MM in dead cap money and 16.25MM against the bonus pool budget as a result of GM Lucas' decisions during his time in Atlanta.


As for GM Lucas, he is expected to attempt to return to GM'ing if and when another position becomes available.

    HIFL LEAGUE ANNOUNCES ADDITION OF SIX NEW FRANCHISES FOR S13 AND BEYOND -- CURRENT CLUBS BRACE FOR BIGGEST EXPANSION DRAFT IN LEAGUE HISTORY!

    NEW YORK --- Today in front of a large crowd of fans and investors the High Impact Football League commissioner Talon Wilkinson announced that the league and the owners association had officially voted to expand the league by a record 6 teams for the S13 season and beyond.

    "The High Impact Football league will grow to a size that I once believed was never possible" said Commissioner Wilkinson during the hour long press conference that also introduced the six owners of the clubs that include a familiar face in BC James, the investor who previously attempted to bring the Tulsa Celtics to Vancouver before their move to Winnipeg.

    The league announced that the future format of the league would be announced at a later date, but they did indicate that the league will be structured with an east and west conference with each conference featuring three five team divisions.

    A brief look into each of the new owners should bring excitement to each of their fan bases.  Each team is expected to begin hunting for their first General Manager, with some looking to poach a GM before this season concludes to get a head start in their hunt for coaching staffs.

    S12 - WEEK 6






    BREAKING NEWS: AMID RUMORS OF JOB SECURITY, GM GATES ANNOUNCES EXIT FROM RAPID CITY, ACCEPTS JOB IN SYDNEY FOR 2022!

    RAPID CITY --- Waves were made around the Football world this afternoon when highly respected two-time Impact Bowl Championship winning General Manager CJ Gates announced his resignation from Rapid City in a press conference prior to the team's trip to San Antonio for a week 6 contest.

    "It's been a great five years, building this franchise up from nothing, learning from my mistakes, and winning two Impact Bowls in the process. But like all good things, my time here has come to an end." Gates said during the brief presser that has left the Rapid City fan base stunned and angry with current acting owner, Robbie Burns.

    As for what's next for GM Gates, well the three time western conference champion announced his intentions during the same presser, saying:

    "As for where I'm going, well I will be travelling down under to Australia to be the first GM of the Sydney Stingrays. Mr. Irwin presented me with this great opportunity and I couldn’t be more thankful. It’s a chance to once again build a team up from nothing, a task that I am very much looking forward to. And who knows, maybe it won’t be long before we become the first international team in the HIFL to win the Impact Bowl."

    With GM Gates at the helm, Sydney could be the most dangerous franchise in the expansion draft.  With a seasoned and successful GM at the controls many experts say that teams should all be worried now as their top talent is now even more likely than ever to be poached in the expansion draft.

    Rapid City's acting owner released a statement indicating the team has no intentions of a fire sale saying "This team will compete with or without GM Gates.  He achieved a lot in the past, but now it is time to move on to our future which is burning red hot with potential."

    While the Inferno will not hire an acting GM for the remainder of Season 12, it is expected that with the talent and prestige the Inferno have, that the job will be a hot commodity for a talented and experienced GM.

    GM Gates leaves Rapid City with a record of 62-39 with a 9-2 playoff record with two impact bowl championships and a third appearance.  GM Gates is the first GM in HIFL History to appear in three consecutive championship games.
