Ready, aim...

Montgomery Mauler team fired by owner

That's right--not a player--the whole team.

Montgomery's indoor football team has been fired.

They had a football team!?

Amid complaints for back wages, the owner of the Montgomery Maulers has fired the players.

But that doesn't mean Montgomery will be without a National Indoor Football League team.


Owner Jamie LaMunyon says an entirely new team will play in Montgomery next week.

She says the new team will have players who played on other teams or didn't make the Maulers during try outs. [...]

Not to be unkind, but exactly what does it say about the level of play in your league if you can afford to fire an entire team, hire an entirely new team, and play a game within a week?

So she fired them for wanting to be paid?

Maybe I need to try that approach with my employees. I can work them for a month and then fire them before the first payday.


I need to ask Dr. Possum about that?

Again--if the level of your work is such that you can bring in an entirely new bunch and be ready to go in a week, you've probably got some quality issues that need to be worked on a bit along with that issue of payment.

There is that quality thing. Maybe I can't fire them all.

Maybe if you just gave them a real mean name, like "Maulers."
