The economic troubles in the world these days have affected the sports world in a bad way as the NLL's Chicago Shamrox has suspended operations for the 2009 season. With the loss of one of their teams, the NLL had to adjust the schedule for the upcoming season. How that affects the Bandits and Bandettes is rather minor. Instead of hosting the Chicago Shamrox in the final game of the regular season on April 18th, the Bandits will instead be hosting the Boston Blazers on that date. The rest of the Bandits slate of games remains unchanged.
