The other day I told you that the Hartford Colonials were your favorite UFL team. But you already knew that since the team had two Orange on its roster, OL Adam Terry and CB Da'Mon Merkerson.

Turns out, unfortunately, that your favorite UFL team might not be playing much football anytime soon.

The Hartford franchise informed players tonight that training camp wouldn't be starting due to the money problem. It's unclear yet if the season will be played.

The league is reportedly in the midst of financial woes so bad it could cause the cancellation of the upcoming season. League commissioner Michael Huyghue continues to say the season will be played and the UFL is expected to make an announcement about its future Tuesday.

Members of the Colonials roster aside from the aforementioned Orange-y duo include QB Colt Brennan, RB Kevin Jones and QB Josh McCown.

It would be a shame to lose the Colonials and their grand tradition. The team went 3-5 in their only previous season. The year before that they were the New York Sentinels, who went 0-6. So it's totally fine if that grand tradition goes away.
