#GameDayEve Rochester Rhinos Edition

It would be totally remiss not to note that the biggest news regarding Wilmington Hammerheads FC has nothing to do with the game tomorrow. It has been reported by Scratching the Pitch, a website run by longtime USL blogger Chad Hollingsworth, that the Hammerheads will take a hiatus from USL throughout the 2017 season. In a subsequent report from Dan Spears of Star News, a Wilmington newspaper, George Altirs, the owner of Wilmington Hammerheads FC, was quoted saying "Nothing is confirmed."

At this point, the Hammerheads organization has neither confirmed nor denied the reports that the team won't be competing in 2017. What's my opinion? The fact that George Altirs said that nothing is confirmed rather than completely denying the possibility of a hiatus seems to be strong evidence that it actually could happen. If, in fact, a hiatus is a possibility, I'd like to know why before making any statements about it.

Is the team voluntarily considering a hiatus? If so, why…
