It's always a sad day when a franchise folds, but it's hard to say I didn't expect it. Today the Orlando Titans folded. I am not surprised because I attended an Orlando Titans playoff game this season only to a crowd of 4,000 maybe. Right then I knew the NLL would not survive in Florida.
It is unclear whether it is a full fold for the Titans, or if they are just going to sit out the season. It is known, however, that the Titans will hold a dispersal draft Friday, with Casey Powell likely to be selected by the Colorado Mammoth or Philadelphia Wings.
Players such as Jordon Hall, Pat Merrill, Rory Smith, and Pat Maddalena are looking to terminate their contracts with the Titans franchise.
There has been speculation of the Titans franchise stability all week now, and we finally know.
