When the team folded, it caused controversy among players, and the team's owner. The team's owner claimed that players showed up hungover and did not put in any effort during training sessions. Players, however, say these statements were untrue. These players claim that they were removed from apartments, not properly trained, and room and board was not covered as per usual in NPSL. Additionally coaches from other NPSL teams in Pensacola's division stated incredible displeasure with the events referring to the mid-season closing as "Irresponsible. Unprofessional. Embarrassing...".
