Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Continental Indoor Football League is an indoor football league based along the Midwestern United States region. It began play in April 2006 as the Great Lakes Indoor Football League. Formed by Jeff Spitaleri, his brother Eric, and third member, Cory Trapp, all from the Canton, Ohio area. The league was originally called the OPIFL, but then executives decided to increase the league's appeal to the entire Great Lakes region. So far, the league has been relatively successful, having a cumulative attendance of over 75,000 in the inaugural regular season. However, the league, like other indoor football associations, has been plagued by folding franchises and unenforceable policies. For example, the 2006 champion Port Huron Pirates were found to have been paying some of their players over the league salary cap. 2007 saw several teams fold during the season, and during the 2008 season, the league's most successful team, the Rochester Raiders, moved to the AIFA due to frustration over the failure of the league to provide notice of an opponent's forfeiture, resulting in lost ticket and advertising revenue.
