The Schaumburg Flyers (independent; North American League) have been operating without an Illinois business license since August 25, 2010, a situation that caused the state to shutter the team’s doors at Alexian Field.
It’s been dubbed a “misunderstanding” by Flyers owner Rich Ehrenreich, who says the state has been paid but the payments were made incorrectly by the team’s payroll processor. Still, for the issue to remain open since August is a little unusual, to say the least; surely the team received several warnings before the business shutdown opened, and it doesn’t take five months to clear up a payroll issue.
