Arena Football League Shuts Down

Recently, USA Today has reported that the Arena Football League has shut down for good. This is a trend that has been continuing with minor sports leagues and teams during this economic downturn - such as the Major Indoor Soccer League shutting down.

My guess is as the economy rebounds, some of sports leagues will enter in a bid to glean some of the profits from the major sports leagues. One thing that I want to point out, is that it seems as if the newer minor leagues are dropping out as opposed to minor sports leagues that have been in existence for many years. This is most likely due to overall market demand for those sports and managerial efficiencies.
