The season winds down to the final game, the 'SHIP as it is called.
The Indiana Generals against the Battle Creek Blaze,this should be a good one for all football fans, the high powered offense of the Generals against the sticky defense of the Blaze sound a little bit like last years title game.
The game is being held at Trine University and that is going to be a long haul for the Generals and their fans ( so much for a reward for being the number seed and having the best record ) but I guess the powers that be had their reason for doing this.
This brings up some very important questions that I think needs to be addressed asap for the fans of BOTH teams.
What hotel will the teams be staying in if any at all.
I'm sure the fans will want to stay in the same hotel if at all possible.
Will either team be spending the night on Friday
Will either team be staying on Saturday night.
There is much pride right now I'm sure both in indianapolis and also in Battle Creek
I hope these questions can be answered early in the week and on this site to help those fans determine where to stay and what nights to book a room.
Congratulations to both teams may you have a fun week and a fun Championship game. Both for the fans all players and coaches.
I would like to remind some of you players and even coaches this may turn out to be the final time you strap on those pads and play the game you love.
I think your giving to much credit to the Blaze for this game. They may be in a very tough North division and can compete with everyone in the league EXCEPT the Generals. Put the Generals in the North division and they still will win by scores that they did in they South. The game will start off close at the coin toss but will become one sided after the first kickoff. Generals will win by 40.
Congrats to the Blaze, and Generals. Good luck this weekend fellas.
its not the generals fault that nobody in the league can compete with them. good job generals bring that trophy back to nap.
There are a couple of hotels in the area offering discounted rooms to the teams and fans. We wanted the teams to have the hotel information first, so they can make their arrangements. The hotel information will be put out for the world to see later in the week.
CONGRATS TO THE BLAZE AND GENERALS IT SHOULD BE A GOOD ONE. BUT LETS GET SOMETHING STRAIGHT EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT THE SOUTH IS WEAK SO TO THE GENERALS YOU SHOULD EXPECT TO WIN LIKE DAT SEEING AS NO OTHER SOUTH TEAM CAN COMPETE WITH ANY OF THE NORTH EXCEPT THE SHAMROCKS AND PANTERS BUT EVERYONE ELSE WOULD PROBALLY BEAT YOU I DONT KNOW WHAT THE HITMEN WHERE PLAYIN FOR BUT EVERYBODY IN THE LEAUGE KNOWS THAT IF IT MEANT SOMETHING TO THEM THEY COULD HAVE BEAT YALL IF THEY WANTED TO NOT TO MENTION THAT THE HURRICANES IF THEY WOULD HAVE HAD ANOTHER SHOT AT U GUYS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT OUTCOME AS SEEING THAT #10 IS BETTER THEN YOUR BEST PLAYER SO JUST KEEP THAT IN MINE AND SEE YOU NEXT YEAR AFTER THE BLAZE BEAT YOU
Always the same: if this, if that...
Like my grandpa used to say, "If the dog hadn't stopped to take a crap, he'd have caught the rabbit."
It is what it is. It's history. Next year is next year; there's one more game. I think it'll be a good one.
Good luck Generals and Blaze. Play hard and stay healthy.
THATS KIND OF FUNNY YOU SAY GIVE THE SOUTH RESPECT WHEN YOU CAN BEAT A REAL NORTH CONTENDER THEN RESPECT YOU WILL GET GOODLUCK NEXT YEAR HOPE TO PLAY YOU GUYS
IF THATS REALLY WHAT YOU WERE PLAYIN FOR THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE CHECKED WITH REST OF THE TEAM BECAUSE THEY SEEM TO THINK OTHERWISE BUT IT'S TURE THE TWO BEST ARE PLAYIN FOR THE SHIP LIKE I SAID IT WILL BE A GOOD ONE
Chris Please stay of the site.
What time is the game and how much is admission?
YEAH THATS REALLY FUNNY CONSIDERING THAT HE'S A SPECIAL TEAMER ON A TEAM WITH 80 GUYS WHY DONT YOU STAY AT HOME AND SAVE YOURSELF THE HEARTACHE OF NOT PLAYIN WHO REALLY SUCKS NOW
Being a special teamer on a team with 80 guys isnt really a bad thing. Especially when the team scores 50 points a game. Thats a lot of kickoffs lol.
Now being special teamer on a team with 20 guys and you dont score very often. That would suck lol
YOU MUST PLAY SPECIAL TEAMS TOO DATS GOOD YOU YOUR STICKING UP FOR HIM BUT IM ON A TEAM THAT IS 35 PLUS AND SCORES POINT YOU LL FIND OUT WHEN WE PLAY GOOD LUCK THOUGH HAVE A GOOD ONE
hahaha jc, you got called out. should let him know that you are a special teamer. but also starting linebacker on the best defense in the ifl. must not know you have won the last 4 champonships in the ifl losing only two games in that span. he must not know what it is to be a leader on a team or he wouldnt be running his mouth behind a no name post. but guess what, hes alos at home this sat waiting to hear if you won another championship talking about how good he will be next year. well bro, we live in the now and right now we are in the championship and your a home. travel safe blaze, cant wait to battle it out for that nice trophy and a ring.

Good luck to the Blaze and Generals. Enjoy the weekend, they have a lot to offer.
For all the complaining about playing the game at Trine, have any of the people who gripe actually been there. It is an amazing field and we should feel lucky as a league that they let us play there. This will go along way in the future in helping recruit new players.
i for one am excited to be playing the game at trine, esp on turf. our team has had 4 games on turf and all of our practices we spend time on turf. i also have heard from a player on our team who attended trine that the facility is top notch, the lights are really nice as well? would i rather be playing the game at out home field like previous years? obviously i would. but my entire is team is excited, we should be arriving in style and i promise ready to play in the champonship game. and hopefully next year like i have heard the game will be played a south location and if all things go right, the generals will be playing for title again, but im gonna stop worrying about that, im focused on saturday and the blaze. i hope as many teams players and fans can make it out to the game. it should be a hell of a matchup. i remember asking kurtis ploehn of the blaze at beginning of season after i met him at a league meeting if his team would like to play us preseason. his response was simple "hopefully we will be playing eachother in the championship" well here we are. look forward to speaking to you again sat. after the game of course, cause right now sorry i dont like you haha
oh and tom marsh i hope to see you too, i want my shirt haha
I look forward to seeing you Saturday as well, Mike! I do recall that conversation. I guess we're psychic, huh? Man...that seems like a long tome ago. How far we've come!
The Blaze is looking forward to representing the North at this beautiful facility at Trine. May the better team win. Good luck, good health and travel safely, friend!
Hats of to A NORTH DIVISION PLAYER. Really I mean it, do you seriously have nothing else to do? If the hitmen are as good as you claim, then they should have brought their A game, they lost, so suck it up. You sound real simple! If they had another shot??? LMFAO! They had one and they lost! Why is saying good job so hard for losers???? Oh that's right because they are always coming up with reasons why they lost and how they woulda shoulda coulda. If all your players are so good then the team would be in the championship, clearly they aren't and you my friend are probably the worst on the team, especially seeing as you can't even spell league right! lol! typical lame... good luck next year, and keep your excuse list ready!
