Spurs weighing options on Talons’ unclear future

The clock is ticking down on the San Antonio Talons and they need a Hail Mary.

The future of the Alamo city’s Arena Football League team hangs in the balance as they wait to see if someone will take ownership of the franchise by August 23.

If no new owner is found by the August 23rd league deadline, it is highly likely that the Talons will fold and the team will be no more. The Talons have dealt with problems ever since they began playing in San Antonio in 2011, and the lack of a stable owner is the biggest.

Spurs Sports and Entertainment currently owns three pro franchises – the San Antonio Spurs, Rampage of the American Hockey League and the Stars of the WNBA. Company president Rick Pych spoke to the San Antonio Business Journal about the possibility of adding the Talons to the list.

From the San Antonio Business Journal:

“We are always looking at opportunities to bring additional sports and other forms of entertainment to our market,” Pych says. “If the right opportunity comes around and we think it would be good for the community, under the right circumstances we would be interested.”

While it appears unlikely, the verdict still remains to be seen if the silver and black will add another team to the franchise. If they do, the Talons will get the touchdown they needed.
