IFL NOW ACCEPTING TEAM APPLICATIONS FOR 2011 SEASON

The Interstate Football League is now accepting team applications for the 2011 season.

To apply, please visit our website at www.interstatefootballleague.com and click the sign up link.

The deadline for applications is Midnight on Friday, December 10, 2010.

The IFL's league board will reconvene on Sunday, December 12, 2010 in Muncie, Indiana and an initial vote will be conducted to determine acceptance of applicant teams. The number of teams accepted will determined by the applicant team’s ability to meet specific criteria i.e. experience, organization, reliability, reputation, distance from existing teams, etc.

Teams selected in the initial vote will be invited to attend our January meeting where they will give a brief presentation to our league board. A vote will be taken and all applicant teams will be notified of the league's decision the same evening.

Some brief information about the Interstate Football League:

An elected league board manages the IFL. The board's members (including the league president) are elected each year to serve the needs of the league, its member teams, coaches and players. The board votes on all league related decisions. Each member team is expected to attend league meetings and actively participate in voting on league issues.

Founded in 2003, we've just completed our seventh season of competition and have established ourselves as a reliable, stable and competitive league.

The IFL carefully considers applicant teams when accepting new teams to minimize the risk of having teams fold mid-season, scheduling problems, facility issues, forfeits, etc. Our teams are all located within a reasonable geographical distance in order to minimize travel.

Best of luck and health to all teams this coming season!

Hands down, best run, most established league around!


LOL Most established league around! How many teams in the IFL multiple National Championships? How many teams have just one National Championship? The Mid-States Football League has the Chicago Thunder and the Racine Raiders who both have had multiple National Championships and the Roscoe Rush will be playing for a National Championship this year. I have played in both league and HANDS DOWN IT WOULD ME THE MID-STATES FOOTBALL LEAGUE THE BEST AROUND!!!! Where is the IFL'S Radio Show at? The Mid-States Football League has one every Monday even in the off season. How was the IFL'S All-Star game? I know the Mid-States Football League All-Star game was great. I know I played in it. That was the last game that I will ever play in. So until the IFL gets some better Teams. Thay cant be the most established league around. I would like to see 34 of the IFL teams play the MSFL teams thay would get blowen out and it wouldn't be a game. I am not knocking the IFL. I there are some really good teams in the IFL. All I am just saying that quote was not right!

LOL Tool LOL I have done more in Semi-Pro Football in 7 years then you will ever do in football. Nice screen name "haha" why dont you put your name on there. Who is a tool now? I am not a "hater". Like I said I played in both League's. The competition in the MSFL is alot better. As I said before. "I am not knocking the IFL. I there are some really good teams in the IFL." I dont think it would be a gome if any of the IFL teams besides the Indiana Generals played the like's of Racine Raiders, Racine Threat, Leyden Lions, Lincoln Way Patriots, Chicago Thunder and the Roscoe Rush

Re: IFL NOW ACCEPTING TEAM APPLICATIONS FOR 2011 SEASON

Dennis when was the last time you played in the IFL? Also u are a long snapper. You come on here like you are a great QB or Lb but your not. You are also the reason semipro is the way it is. Some talks about a league and you talk about yourself. No one cares about what a long snapper has done. The CRFL,IFL,MSFL are all soft so shut up. I'll wait for your reply about how great you are.

Izzy, how you gona sit and shit talk to somebody else for braggin bout their league then bash every other league that isn't yours?

Dennis, Are National Championships or H.O.F. candidates the only criteria that are used to determine the quality of a league?

How are any of the leagues from one end of this country to the other really that much different? Each one does the same basic thing just typically on a different scale. I would be willing to bet that there are just as many, if not more, small market teams out there. And I would also bet that the players on those teams play just as hard and care just as much about football as any of the bigger teams do.

The "National Rankings" "Semi-pro BCS" and "National Championship(s)" that are out there are a joke and everybody knows anything understands that. They are in place to stroke egos, make teams feel like they can play for something more than their own league title and bragging rights, and often times are just a money making gimmick for the organizing body.
How many "National Championships" are there? Who determines who gets to play in them? Who is goin from city to city, coast to coast evaluating EVERY TEAM every week to validate the rankings and participation. If one of the teams that is INVITED to play for a natty can't or won't make the trip, does the opposing team win by forfeit. . . NO they find another team, a replacement, to fill the slot.
How can you tell me that the class system at this level means ANYTHING? There are NO criteria in place to determine what qualifies teams as A, AA 1-AA(what the hell is that?) or, AAA. Roster size means nothing, Player experience levels mane nothing, market size means nothing, so how do you know where a team should be?
I've been waiting for years to have that question answered, and doubt that it happens in my lifetime.

Bottom line, count your blessings for being able to play a kids game as a grown man. Just because they call it a game, however, doesnt mean you can act like a child. Grow up. Instead of trying to pound your chest and scream how much better you are than someone else, try and understand the similarities that bind all of us. Know that you are part of something special and unique, not everybody can do what we do, or you wouldn't have to leave your hometown to find other teams to play.

I played in the IFL in 2007 with the SCB. I have never said anything about playing QB or LB. All my posting say Long Snapper. I also started at Center in 2006 for the Lafayette Lions. I am Proud of what I have done in Semi-Pro football. And I have the up most respect for anyone who is or has ever played the game of football at any level. I just put my player profile up because the person call me a tool. I know what I am talking about.

Mr Wolf That is not the only criteria that are used to determine the quality of a league. But look at the teams that I have posted. Any league that has those teams with there prestige that thay bring would be happy. What do you think the Score would be if the Racine Raiders or the Chicago Thunder played anyone from the IFL? Those teams didnt run throw the MSFL. The Racine Raiders was 6 and 2 and the Chicago Thunder was 4 and 4. Nether won the League Championship. Dont get me wrong the IFL has some really good teams and players and I hope the IFL can get more teams to join the League. That could be more playing time for the players. But thay cant say thay are the best League around. Every League has there problems. Not every League is perfect.

I really didnt mean any Disrespect to anyone.

Re: IFL NOW ACCEPTING TEAM APPLICATIONS FOR 2011 SEASON

Wolf, you beat me to the post.

Who in the hell makes up this "National Championship" and "Semi-Pro Rankings"? Where are "their" meetings? What is "their" e-mail address so that I might send "them" information like how many yards my team has given up. Or even easier, what is "their" phone number that I can call? What bar, garage, basement, or strip club are "they" meeting in?

Oh. By the way no league that I am aware of, IFL or whoever has an INDEPENDENT, OUTSIDE STATS OFFICIAL going to games to record info. Even High School athletic departments do this in most cases. If you are keeping your own as a team and tracking your opponents then YOU ARE LYING!!! I can say this because everyones ego will get in the way of reporting true stats. So National Championships, Semi Pro Rankings and Individual Recognition has as much value as what you can post on message boards such as this. It looks great on here but means nothing on the field.
And as far as going to Florida to play for "The National Championship"...the only winner there is the people that organize it and charge idiots like us to an entry fee and gate addmission.
Dennis, I do not know you, nor do I know anything about your team, your league, or all the awards you have won. Congrats on you accompliments. And good luck.

LOL Would you have to be in the hire up's to Attend? I would go to the meeting then even when I dont play anymore. LOL

Mike K: Thanks for the Congrats. I realy wish that there could be only one National Championship like in the old'n days. When the Kane County Eagles and the Racine Raiders was winning them. It started getting crazy and out of hand when thay started making a National Championship game for the smaller market teams. Thats when thay put in AA National Championship game and this year is the first time I seen the 1AA National Championship game.
