About

The North American Football League was a proposed Spring American Football League that was to begin play in 2016, with 8 teams, all located in the Eastern Half of the USA.

The Leagues owners, however, were arrested and charged with Grand Theft for taking $150,000 from an investor, without ever having the intention to start the League, according to prosecutors. The League never started in Spring 2016, and there was a no-show at its own try-outs.

Christopher White (46) and his wife, Tracy (47), from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, were charged by Bay County, Fla. deputees, with assistance from the Rutherford County Sheriff’s office, of theft of $100,000 from the victim, who had said she had begun a relationship with Christopher White in 2010, and he had convinced her to invest in the League and an associated production company.
