Way to intense of a league for me to miss out on, the Florida Phantoms will be back next year.  (hopefully, this time with a better record)

Sorry, but after much debate, I will not be returning to FATAL for the 2009 season.  The Lehigh Valley Fear is closing up shop for good.  This is by far my favorite format and I am proud of the direction my team is finally headed, but I just don't have the time to devote to so many leagues anymore.  Unfortunately, since this is one of the more labor intensive ones, it must go.

Thanks for having me around for the past 3 seasons.  I wish you all well!

Yeah, believe me, this was a tough choice.  I have alot of respect for many of the owners here and I think I finally managed to turn around a franchise that was a mess when I inherited it.  Someone has some nice tools to work with for 2009, IMO

Good Luck boys!  I will still be watching!
