One of my favorite things about minor league indoor football isn’t so much the quality of play or seeing former D1 players slum it out in those leagues, but the crazy stories that come with these leagues.
The players make very little money, leagues fold and form up every year, teams fold, move, or re-open every year, and with it comes a lot of crazy stories.
One of my favorites was a team who paid its coach one cent on his last paycheck. Another was a quarterback from San Jose State traveling to the midwest and signing with two teams, only to learn that both had folded once he got there.
Today, I have a great rumor that I really want to be true. And I stress, ***THIS IS ONLY A RUMOR***, and I have no real proof of this being true.
