What a shame.
The Chicago division of Snoop Dogg’s Snoop Youth Football League (SYFL) is facing hardships, according to reports.
One of the teams from the area, The Pilsen Jets, was supposed to play in the Playoff’s today (November 6). MyFoxChcago reports that the SYFL in the is allegedly tens-of-thousands of dollars behind in bills. As a result, the team, which consists of boys aged 7-14, which was forced to end their season early. The bills for the teams football pads, helmets and jerseys totals at $22,000 and remain unpaid, according to the report. Fox stated that if the team took to the field today, the sponsor would strip the team of their uniforms and equipment.
“I don’t think it’s fair,” a parent named Betty Arias told MyFoxChicago. “I think it’s more humiliating for them to show up there and asked to take off the equipment, asked to take off your uniform right after the game.” Reps for the SYFL were not available for comment as of press time.
