Onto the Games this weekend
Tornados @ Reapers:
Jeepers! The tornados have seem to not gotten off their fast start like their pervious pre-season games but to their credit, they have played better competition this year (Columbus Fire, Wildcats) than last year (Renegades, Revolution). It has yet to fully be seen the impact from the Nighthawks spinoff, but my guess is that the Tornados don’t have an undefeated season this year due to the fact there is are more walk over teams left in their division. I am looking for an updated schedule of the Tornados if anyone can help out. Don’t go out and declare Indiana is tornado free, Indiana is still part of tornado alley and could blow though many of the teams in the state without much effort.
Enforcers @ East Side Justice:
The Evansville Enforcers are unknown by most in the state, but shouldn’t be. This team is going on 5 years of playoff caliber teams, just missing the playoffs last year. I don’t expect that to happen again. The Enforcers have regrouped, added size and locked in a lot of money. Their home at the Ritz Bowl is no easy play to get, or to play in and do belong in the discussion of being one of the top 5 teams in the state.
Scorpions @ Stallions of CC:
Unknowns galore. Why did they at the last min change leagues. Are they still a team – Rumors are they most of the team left for others in the area. My guess is we will know after this weekend the future or lack thereof of the Scorpions.
That’s it for this weekend. I hear underground whispers of a Generals vs Revolution game but cannot confirm it.
6-2 5:00 KICKOFF
Generals vs. Revolution Preseason Game
Free for whoever wants to watch just don't bitch if there aint what you want to see....No concessions, matching jerseys, scoreboard etc. Just seeing where each team needs to improve on. Score will be kept by officials on the field ya dig?
Ear would love to hear its rankings be HEARD. Ear will contact INSPF shortly
Ear is out
I previously stated I would offer my services to the website. It will give me a chance to prove once and for all I am the #1 Football fan in all of semi-pro land. I must be included so that the rankings are true and unbiased.
Ear has sent INSPF a message via email to be allowed into the rankings. Ear believes all will enjoy unbiased rankings and reports the Earmobile will bring in. Ear needs a job.

Generals vs. Revolution game will be played in Knighstown at Knightstown H.S 7pm.
We want to thank the Revolution for working with us and being so patient. We lost a couple fields this past week and they were able to pull thru for everyone and land a field for this weekend. Both teams are looking forward to the game this weekend!
Thanks again! See you guys Saturday!
From the GMFL Website - Like we do every year we have reworked the schedule to cover the holes left by the Wildcats and Scorpions [who joined the GMFL only to also announce a week later that they were going to forego the 2012 season as well].
The Scorpions will be removed from the website after this weekend's update.
EAR thinks Football Fan #1 has some valid points, but Ear thinks you express them in all the wrong ways. Ear wants you to eat your green beans and come sit down at the grown up table and express your views in a new way. Ear wishes you would go, but since that obviously won't happen, Ear is lending you an open hand. Ear also wants to know how the hell is Mork and Mindy compares to any team? This isn't the the 80's anymore bud. Back up a little and listen to the sounds Ear is saying. Quit getting caught with your pants down and MAYBE people will give your words a little more weight. Ear is tired of pitying fools.
