AFL alive for now

The Arena Football League board of directors voted Wednesday not to suspend play in 2009 for now.

“The Board will continue to meet regularly to examine any and all long-term structural improvement options for the AFL,” the league said in a statement.

The Rocky Mountain News reported earlier Wednesday that the league was ready to call it quits.

“I have yet to hear anything from our ownership, but I am happy for the league and happy to possibly have the opportunity to defend our championship,” Philadelphia Soul coach Bret Munsey told The Associated Press.“We all know there are some things that need to be corrected, and that’s what they’re working on. They’re working on the economic model, and it needs to be corrected. Maybe this makes the league stronger. We’re looking to be around for another 20 years.”
