Rumor: Baker and Goodell come to agreement

Our sources tell us that during the last week AFL commisionair David Baker and NFL commisionair Roger Goodell have come to an agreement about the use of the NFL Europe team names and logo's. The AFL will be allowed to use the names of all past NFL Europe teams (Admirals, Centurions, Claymores, Dragons, Fire, Galaxy, Monarchs, Sea Devils and Thunder) and their logo's.

The other news our sources bring us is that multiple former NFL Europa coaches have been contacted about a coaching job in and AFL Europe league. And that the AFL is already talking to possible investors in both Germany and The Netherlands.

The rumor was that in 2008 there will be a total of 4 exhibition games held in Europe. It now looks like it will be a mini AFL tournament in Dusseldorf. Two AFL teams have been contacted about the possibility of this tournament, the Colorado Crush and Philadelphia Soul.

As you can read, the rumors are getting stronger and stronger and in the next few week we should know some more details about the AFL Europe League. All we can do now is just wait and see.
