CORPUS CHRISTI - The stability of the Lone Star Football League took another hit Monday when the Corpus Christi Hammerheads refused to board a bus for their game in Laredo. Some players claim they haven't been paid while others say an eviction notice has been placed on their team-provided housing.
The Hammerheads' strike postponed Monday night's game in Laredo and left team owner Chad Dittman talking to KRIS-TV about the challenges in running three teams. Dittman owns LSFL teams in Corpus Christi, Laredo, and the Rio Grande Valley.
Channel 5 Sports attempted to reach Dittman numerous times Monday night, but so far those phone calls have yet to be returned. Magic coach Schuyler Anderson told Channel 5 Sports late Monday that his players have at times had concerns over their pay. Anderson stressed that player contracts don't state exactly when players should be paid, only that they should be paid.
Although Anderson admits some of his players are still owed money, he says Dittman has promised him that all Magic players will be compensated for their work.
The Magic are next scheduled to visit Laredo this Saturday night.
