I'm just upset on behalf of Force fans for the lack of an explanation.

We are fully planning to move forward and play in 2010 at our home field of ECTB Stadium in Allentown. We hope to have the issue with the NPF resolved in a timely manner.
Whatever that means.
Their PR and marketing efforts are a mess. The home page lists opportunities for internships...for Spring 2009 and promotions for events that occurred last August. Other than the cryptic message above, from January, there's nothing.
Oh, I stand corrected. They Tweeted 2 days ago about stuff for sale in their online store. It's almost as if they are TRYING to turn people off their product

If the Force indeed fold, it would be a huge blow. Tom Kleinman, the team owner, has been a pioneer in promoting his team through the use of television, having produced well over 30 shows dedicated to his team since he took over the reins on February 28, 2007. He is a strong advocate of promoting the "star quality" of his playersunder his guidance, ace Katie Burkhart seemed poised for superstardom. Tom's presence in the NPF would be sorely missed.

After much thought and effort, sadly we WILL NOT compete in the NPF this season. As many of you no doubt are aware, I entered an agreement to sell the franchise back in September of 2009. A formal closing was held and the only issue that did not happen was the payment. Needless to say from then until now we have endured much with the hope that the new owner to be could finalize the transaction.
Unfortunately, that never happened, in spite of several promises from the Buyer’s Investors. There will be MORE information forthcoming in June/July re: plans for 2011. Additionally, follow our site for news re: Camps and clinics this summer.
That is it for now and I look forward to seeing you all at the Stadium again as soon as possible.

I just looked at their website and nothing has been updated since 2007!
I checked out their facebook fan page and there was a slight variation of the above quote posted on the Philadelphia Force:
Fans: As many of you may be aware I sold the team to a new Investor back in September 2009. We went through a formal closing and funds were anticipated shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, the Buyer ran into some problems and although I made no legal commitment have endeavored to work with him. As of today, he still does... not have his money but recently informed me that he expected to close very soon. If that happens, we believe the NPF will welcome us back but that is subject to League approval. It is not too late for us to get up and running, as many will recall the Pride came on board last year in May!Please keep the Force Faith and support us by purchasing apparel from our website www.forcestuff.com Tom
Too bad the quote was in April 2010. The Force is finished.
