Amarillo, Texas-The Amarillo Venom play a potentially pivotal game Saturday night against the visiting Quad City Steamwheelers.
The Steamwheelers are alone at the top of the CIFL at 8-3 after an overtime win against the Salina Liberty last Saturday evening and the Venom went to 7-3 after a loss to Duke City, who improved to 8-2.
Venom player Jeff Branch offered a bit of insight on the preparation for this weeks game. "We really worked on having better communication. We watched a lot of film and we had an intense physical week of practice. We're preparing for a dog fight Saturday night."
Quad City is at a distinct disadvantage with the 975 mile trip, "Being the road team is always tough. I think that travel will be a factor but we're not really putting to much stock into it." states Branch.
The Venom will be giving out free replica balls to the first 500 kids through the gates with a ticket.
The game between Amarillo and Quad City will start at 6pm at the Cal Farley Coliseum and will be broadcast on Pluto TV.

Where Should the CIF Go Next?
By Chris Mabry
With the CIF season winding down, here is the top five places the CIF should expand to in 2019?
#5 Cleveland Ohio
Since the Cleveland Browns came back to the NFL in 1999 it has been the laughing stock of the league. But, when the Gladiators moved from Los Angeles to Cleveland, it brought renewed life for the struggling city and state. I'm sure since the Gladiators left this past season, their fans are looking and hoping for a comeback. Hopefully, a comeback with the CIF. Coming to the CIF will have a better market value than the AFL, IFL, and NAL. THey will have a better audience and better attendance than before and maybe a better chance at a championship.
#4 Detroit, Michigan
Since the last government shutdown, Lions struggling in games, and no indoor football team since the AFL began, Detroit is a perfect spot for the struggling economy. By having a team in the CIF will have a brand new start with Detroit and it will bring in new fans.
#3 Chicago, Illinois 141-97-0
For five seasons, Chicago, Illinois has been without an Arena Football team. Yes, they have the Chicago Bears NFL team, but when the NFL is done for the season, the city of Chicago needs a second team to fill the void. When Arena Football was in the Windy City was from 1987-1989. The Chicago Bruisers went 14-10 in two seasons including playoffs. Speaking of playoffs, the Bruisers went 1-2 losing those two games to Detroit and winning their one playoff game also against Detroit.
After the city went on a 12 year hiatus, the AFL welcomed a new team to Chicago called the Chicago Rush. From 2001-2013 the Chicago Rush were a beter team then their previous team. In 12 seasons, the Rush had an impressive overall record of 127-87 and they won Arena Bowl XX.
Now is a good time for a Chicago franchise to come to the CIF. A team in Chicago will profit from the franchise from tickets to watch parties in bars and restraints. Plus, if a team happens to return, they don't have to worry about getting fans to watch te games or attend one. They already have them.
Chicago Bruisers: (1987-1989) 14-10-0 - including playoffs
Chicago Rush: (2001-2013) 127-87 - including playoffs
#2 Seattle, Washington
With the Seahawks dominating the NFL, its time to bring the CIF to Washington St. They can be called the 9th man and have a huge impact on opponets and a disadvantage on the opponents.
#1 Dallas, Texas
Yes, I know there is already two teams in Texas and one in the Dallas, Texas area, but when the AFL team Dallas Desperados were here and they played their games at the American Airlines Center, they brought in a lot of fans and filled the void when the Cowboys didn't play. Plus with the Marshals out of the CIF, they can always add another team their again if they chose too.

Last off-season was very busy and filled with quite a bit of drama, especially with the events that unfolded between Champions Indoor Football (CIF) and the Indoor Football League (IFL). The Sioux Falls Storm and Wichita Falls Nighthawks tried leaving for CIF as they thought they followed the process correctly. Following this the West Michigan Ironmen and Bloomington Edge left for the IFL after committing to the CIF. This breach of contract caused a legal battle to ensue. Both the Ironmen and Edge tried to return to the CIF, but refused to pay the $25k the CIF requested.
The Ironmen played one season in the Midwest Professional Indoor Football (MPIF), where they won the championship. The Ironmen will rejoin the CIF in 2019 with new ownership and the Edge will play a smaller independent schedule during the summer. When we asked the Edge about the rumor that they'd be returning to the CIF they replied with a quote from their General Manager that said "We have not had a single discussion with the CIF about re-joining that league and we do not anticipate any discussions with them." Bloomington's plans for the future are yet to be announced, but we'll be sure to keep everyone posted as news becomes available.
Recently we did research to figure out more of what happened and what could've happened if things had gone differently between the two leagues. It appears that last August the IFL and CIF were in talks of a merger but there were teams from each league who didn't agree on it. The teams that appeared to be against the merger were the Iowa Barnstormers, Nebraska Danger, Sioux Falls Storm, Sioux City Bandits, Duke City Gladiators, and Quad City Steamwheelers. It appears the defending United Bowl Champion, Arizona Rattlers were in the process of starting the merger as their ownership group filed trademarks for the Wichita Falls Nighthawks (now defunct), Green Bay Blizzard, Cedar Rapids Titans, West Michigan Ironmen, Centex Cavalry (now defunct), Omaha Beef, Kansas City Phantoms, Dallas Marshals (now defunct), Amarillo Venom, Bismarck Bucks, Texas Revolution, and Salina Liberty.
In November rumors started flying after the San Jose SaberCats got back online and a fan asked if they were coming back. The SaberCats replied not yet, more news after the first of the year. So far, there's been no word from San Jose. Then rumors started flying about a possible new west coast league that the Arizona Rattlers and San Jose SaberCats would be co-founders of. The Rattlers informed us that those rumors were false.
We reached out to IFL teams and a few other sources for comment on rumors such as the Cedar Rapids Titans moving to Tucson and what the IFL might look like with expansion come 2019. One source said they believed Cedar Rapids moving to Tucson was inked, while the Titans denied they're moving. When we asked Cedar Rapids about league expansion they said the league has several markets with potential ownership groups being explored for 2019 expansion. Should the Cedar Rapids Titans relocate to Tucson, they'd play at the Tucson Convention Center, currently home to the Tucson Roadrunners of the American Hockey League (AHL). The move would create an instant rivalry with the Arizona Rattlers who play at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix two hours north on Interstate 10. Cedar Rapids finished last season with a 1-15 record and currently sit at 1-10 this season with three games left. The Titans host the Nebraska Danger June 2nd before heading out on the road to finish the season with a game June 9th against the Green Bay Blizzard and June 16th against the Iowa Barnstormers.
The Sioux Falls Storm were also rumored to be the team moving to Tucson, we reached out to them and they said they're not moving. We then asked the Storm about the IFL's plan for expansion. The Storm said it was way too early at this point, but that the goal is to have a Midwest Division and a Western Division. We reached out to the Green Bay Blizzard and Nebraska Danger for comment, but have yet to receive a reply.

Battle for the I-40 Crown
By Tonya Swim
Amarillo, Texas - The Amarillo Venom will be traveling to Albuquerque, New Mexico Saturday for not only bragging rights, but also the top spot in the CIF Southern Division.
Anyone looking at the current stats would think they are seeing double because the two teams are so close in every regard with their stats.
The biggest difference is Duke City has a running game that they use often and effectively as well as their passing, that doesn't worry the Venom defense however. "We have been preparing to play a full game on defense, offense and special teams! If we do that we will be successful in the end. We will be ready." Stated Terrious Triplett, Defensive Back for the Venom.
The Salina Liberty is the lone team at the top of the Northern division, so a loss to Quad City Steamwheelers this weekend would propel the winner of the Venom/Duke City game to the top of the entire CIF.
The game will be broadcast on Pluto TV beginning at 7pm CST.

NAL registers trademark "Nashville Kats", which means arena football is headed back to Nashville.
By Aaron Castete
A trademark was filed earlier this week on Monday May 21st by National Sports Ventures LLC which is the National Arena League. The trademark was registered as "Nashville Kats", which confirms arena football is headed back to Nashville and the Kats are returning, but this time it'll be in the NAL. National Sports Ventures LLC had registered the Maine Mammoths and Carolina Cobras names months before the team's names were announced previously in 2017. Since 2017, Nashville has been one of many rumored markets to join the league. Sources reported that the Nashville team was on the brink of playing in 2018, but decided to hold off for more preparation.
Whether the team will play in Bridgestone Arena, home of the NHL's Predators, or the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, no one knows yet. The Kats will make their return for the third time. The addition of Nashville to the NAL is huge for multiple reasons. Nashville is a current NFL market, with a lot of fans who support the Tennessee Titans. The city has an NHL hockey team, which sells out almost every game as a result of passionate diehard fans. Geographically, Nashville is also a great fit too!
The Kats Original Incarnation (1997-2001):
After being unable to reach favorable agreements with the Bridgestone Arena which was controlled by the venue's primary tenant, the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League, majority owner Mark Bloom sold the franchise in December 2001 to Virgil Williams, an Atlanta businessman. The team's departure was as a result of not being able to negotiate a favorable lease with the Predators. The Nashville Kats were one of the most thriving and developing teams in the AFL, with very high attendance. Following the move to Atlanta, this team would be rechristened the Georgia Force.
The Kats Second Incarnation (2005-2007):
The second incarnation of the Nashville Kats began play in 2005 at the then-Gaylord Entertainment Center, the home of the original Kats team. On October 10, 2007, after months of speculation, owner Bud Adams decided to shut down operations for the second time in Nashville Kats history. While ticket sales had been good initially, as the team didn't perform well on the field, the attendance dropped.
The Most Recent Team to play in Nashville, the Venom (2014-2015):
In 2014, a new indoor football team began play at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium as the Nashville Venom in the PIFL (Professional Indoor Football League. The team won the championship of its league in its initial season as a member, but it vanished (along with the league as a whole) after the 2015 season. Billy Back, current head coach of the NAL's Carolina Cobras was the head coach of the team along with QB Charles McCullum, WR Phillip Barnett, and WR Jordan Jolly who were members of the roster. Back, McCullum, Barnett, and Jolly, on July 12, 2014, were a part of the PIFL Cup Championship team, as they defeated the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks 64-43. Old foes you may say? Yes, the Venom faced the Columbus Lions and Lehigh Valley Steelhawks, current NAL members who were in the PIFL. Back, McCullum, Barnett, and Jolly have a history of playing against the Lions and Steelhawks.

We recently chatted with Iowa Barnstormers Head Coach Dixie Wooten about the success the team has had since he was hired as Head Coach prior to the start of the 2017 IFL season. The Barnstormers left the AFL after the 2014 season and played their first IFL season in 2015 where they 6-8, followed by a 4-12 season in 2016. Through their first two IFL seasons they were a combined 10-20.
In 2017 the team hired Dixie Wooten as Head Coach, who was coming off a successful season as the Offensive Coordinator of the IFL's Cedar Rapids Titans. The Titans went 12-4 losing in the United Conference Championship to the Sioux Falls Storm with Wooten as OC. In his first season as head coach of the Barnstormers, Wooten lead the team to a 13-3 record losing their United Conference Semifinal matchup to the Sioux Falls Storm.
Wooten credits the team's turnaround to the great coaching staff he hired. Wooten hired Marcus Coleman as Defensive Coordinator and Defensive Backs Coach and Malcolm Nelson as Defensive Line Coach and Special Teams Coordinator. This season he brought on Hurtis Chinn as Wide Receivers Coach.
Wooten stated they make their players buy into their system and their goals. He said his coaching staff makes sure players understand what opposing teams want to do to them. It's no secret he said that they want to work out every team they play.
When asked about their mindset for the rest of the season he said "It's a championship mindset around here. No matter who we play, we play to the standard of a champion. We study like a champion, we practice like champions, and we work hard like champions." He stated that right now they're in what he called the regular season playoffs to get home field advantage throughout the playoffs and that every game mattered.
To wrap up, we asked what he saw as the future for the IFL, specifically Iowa's future and if they had talked about joining a different league such as the NAL. He replied no and that the IFL is a strong league and will be even stronger next year. He used this week's game in Arizona as an example with how it drew 18,000 spectators with two great teams in a game that was an instant classic.
The IFL has always been one of the premier indoor leagues, but it's had it's weaknesses. Last off-season saw a legal battle between the CIF and IFL with breach of contract being the issue the case centered on. With six teams this season, hearing how the league is great and will be even greater next season makes you wonder if expansion is on the way in 2019 and what markets might be targeted.
The Idaho Horsemen are a team to keep your eye on as they're yet to make their decision on whether they'll be joining the CIF or IFL. There are other markets like Tucson and San Jose that've had rumors fly since last season. You can guarantee once the playoffs wrap up and a United Bowl Champion is crowned you'll be hearing quite a bit about changes within the IFL, expansion being most likely the hottest topic on the table.

With three weeks to go until the 2018 playoffs, it's time for the playoff push to begin.
This Friday, the Texas Revolution will travel to Kansas City, Missouri to face the Kansas City Missouri for the first time. Last season the Phantoms entered the CIF as an expansion franchise. This season, the teams have had two totally different seasons.
Kansas City Phantoms
With the Kansas City Phantoms sitting on a 2-7 conference and overall record and second to last in the South conference, it doesn't look like they will make the postseason in their second season. Even though their total yards are in the 2,000 range.
Quarterback Donovan Portiere went 24-39, 195-yards, 3TD, 2INT
Last week, the Texas Revolution got their third straight win not including the two forfeited victories by the Dallas Marshals After bringing back their head coach Victor Mann and switched starting quarterbacks, teams are having trouble winning against them.
Last week, the Texas Revolution got a win against their conference Rivals, the Duke City Gladiators.
