    What raised my eyebrows reading the article is they lost money, but yet they never played a full indy schedule, along with travel.

    San Rafael played 60 total games, 41 of those games we’re at home. Could you imagine if they played in a legit indy league where you play anywhere from 90-140 games. The only travel this team had was two flights to Maui.

    Seems like they didn’t make money this season, but that’s to be expected when your starting up a new franchise. The first 2-3 years are always the toughest as your having to pay for everything to get started. If you make money in your third year, your on your way to success in my opnion. I wonder what will become of the NAL. I think the Pacifics are one and done… just add them to the list of failed indy teams.
