Memphis Mojo Soccer Team Kaput 

Chris Talley, president of the Memphis Mojo, the American Indoor Soccer League team, announced that the team will not play after all. In today's Commercial Appeal, Talley cited a lack of support from the league and questioned the league's stability for reasons why he disbanded the team a little more than a month before its first game. But is that the whole story?

Talley was the subject of an October 29th profile in The Benton County Daily Record. The article is about Talley's efforts to bring a WNBA team to Arkansas and to build an arena in Rogers. The site of the arena was originally in Bentonville, and the move brought about some concerns involving Talley's past, which includes a more-than-a-decade-old arrest and resume-fudging. Talley says he's unhappy that his past is under scrutiny and that some people simply want the arena project to fail.
