Default BAFL Collapse

I know it is probably very old news for most of you (Well at least a few months) but for those of you who don't know, the BAFL has been liquidated and Britain no longer has a standing American Football League, unless one has been put in place without my knowing. This presents a problem for the many players and clubs left without a governing body to control standings, games and administration.

I would just like to hear from Coaches and players from around the country letting me know what everyone is now doing about games, because I am rather positive that there are many people still more than passionate about playing and won't let a small stumble like this get in the way.

As much of a challenge it will be to create a new league I believe it is very possible. Maybe even with the help of the NFL, as I'm sure that they wouldn't want the support that is growing exponentially on our little island to fall just as quickly. I know that it's a big thing to think that we may get the NFL directly involved but hey, dream big and why not?

But back to the point, please get in contact

Old news from last year.

The British League is running and strong and has been since BAFL folded in January!! The BAFL was purely one organisation out of 5 and were replaced by BAFACL. There website is here www.bafacl.com

Because of this thread I took a look at the Youtube highlights of the last Brit Bowl. There's fantastic football being played! Need to get more people in those stands!

I know... I'm preaching to the choir, right?

I just know that I'd definitely go if I were in the UK.
