There's apparently a bitter separation going on in Milwaukee, involving the Arena Football's Milwaukee Bonecrushers.
Earlier this week, general manager Chris Kokalis, head coach Gilbert Brown, defensive coordinator Gene Rhodes Jr. and offensive coordinator Jeff Hermann said they had resigned from the team, citing irreconcilable differences with the teams ownership.
But the Bonecrushers owners, on their website, are telling a different story. The teams ownership group say they have fired Rhodes and Hermann, but Brown and Kokalis left on their own.
The Bonecrushers have since hired Michael Tumbleson as their new head coach and Jordan Kopac as the new general manager.
As many as 19 of the teams players have reportedly joined the coaches in leaving the team.
The Bonecrushers are off to a 0-3 start, yet the ownership group says they have no money problems, the bills are paid and the players have been paid. Ownership is trying to move ahead, sign new players to replace those that have left, and pick up the pieces. But it's not exactly a pleasant scenario.
It's he said, he said! He said I resign and the other he said no, you're fired. Just three games into the season. Obviously, somewhere along the line, personalities have clashed. Who knows who's at fault. But to have these type of problems just three games into your first season is not pretty.
How deep are the owners pockets? The answer to that question may very well determine whether or not this franchise can stay afloat.
