Five former TMG Outlaws players will be forming a Midwest based Semi-Pro team for the 2022 NXL season. They will be competing to earn back a pro spot for 2023.
When talking with one of the former players, Vidal Saldivar, he mentioned that the sale of the team came as a total shock for the players, and they were not notified by team ownership;
"So for the record, some people are not clear on (what happened). The players on Outlaws had no idea that the team was being sold. At (NXL World) Cup we found out from other people.
