The League Office announced today that despite the Outlaws initially clinching the #4 seed in the National Conference to face the San Jose SaberCats, they will be replaced by the Portland Thunder due to Las Vegas being seized by the AFL last month.
The AFL issued this release, Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below,
“The New Orleans VooDoo and Las Vegas Outlaws organizations have ceased operations effective immediately, the Arena Football League announced today. All players under a continuing contract with either Team shall be placed into the Offseason Assignment Process once a date has been determined.
>> Since no Team ownership is in place, there is no funding for an Outlaws playoff appearance. The AFL Board of Directors took this into consideration as it was voted that Las Vegas will not take part in postseason play. The Portland Thunder will move into the fourth position in the National Conference playoff picture and face the top seeded San Jose SaberCats during the AFL Quarterfinals on Friday, August 14 at 11pm ET.”
