At least they're keeping the team alive and trying to find ownership. Seems to me particularly at the PDL and NPSl level that teams seem far more intimately tied to their owners as pet projects rather than being true franchises that one buys and sells. Rather the teams often seem to live or die on solely on their owners interest in the team or in running the team. Often leads to strange chain teaming in cities where teams pop up and then die in near consecutive years rather than having a simple ownership transfer happen between owners with one existing team. Take San Diego at the NPSL level in the last 7 years. You had San Diego Pumitas (2005-7), San Diego United (2008), San Diego Boca FC (2009-present) all in a consecutive order (and in some cases even with some of the same staff), but always a new franchise every time the owner ducked out.
