United Football League suspends operation until spring

The UFL is struggling and has postponed the second half of its season until the spring.

The United Football League teams are in Omaha, Nebraska; Sacramento, California; Las Vegas, Nevada and Norfolk, Virginia.

The league plans on returning to a fall schedule in 2013.

As of this past week, coaches and players have not been paid. Players earn $3,500 a game.

The UFL said that its priority is to pay coaches, players and support staff. The league did not have enough money to cover workmen’s compensation insurance and other bills.

League founder and chairman William Hambrecht said that each team has played four of the eight regularly-scheduled games. The remaining games and the championship game will be played in the spring.

The league was founded in 2007 and its inaugural season was 2009.

Sacramento to keep Kings for at least another year

The Kings organization and the NBA have given the city of Sacramento, California one last chance to prove it’s worthy of being an NBA city.

That pushes the ball into the hands of former NBA star and Mayor Kevin Johnson and business leaders to come up with a plan for a new arena to replace aging Arco Arena, now named Power Balance Arena after the sweatband manufacturer.

At one time, the Arena was one of the finest in the NBA. Built for $40 million in 1987, it seats 17,317 for basketball, has 30 luxury suites and 412 club seats. But the Kings say they need a more modern arena.

The building was named Power Balance Arena on March 1, 2011.

The Maloof family, owners of the Kings and the Arena, decided to keep the team in Sacramento rather than move it to Anaheim, California on a temporary basis. But the owners and NBA commissioner David Stern have made it clear that the team will be moved if an arena plan is not in place by the end of next season.

Sacramento is a city with budget deficits and heavy job losses, and has been reluctant to contribute public dollars to replace or upgrade the aging arena.
