The Dorados were looking forward to playing another successful season in
2010, but AF2 teams got together and decided not to re-commit to play in
the AF2. They decided this because of the financial problems faced by the
AFL, who is the majority shareholder of the AF2.
A majority of the teams from the AF2 are forming a new league. The Dorados
are not a part of this group. The Dorados were not made aware of any of
this until a few weeks ago although the planning has apparently been going
on for a while.
Since the AFL legally owns the Dorados name and logo, this pretty much
means the end of the Dorados franchise in the Valley.
Personally, I can’t imagine that it’s the end of professional football in
the Valley, just the end of the Dorados, which is very unfortunate.
