I hear they were smart enough to grab copies of the FB content before the site got yanked and I have been assured they will be chiming in on the controversy. Perhaps they will start a charity DVD Drive "Donate your copy of Hell on Wheels to the Salt City crowd".

You're right, being a 501c3 doesn't necessarily mean being a better organization, but it does require an organization structure and clearly stated mission, management structure, membership, and bylaws and has to be open to the public. Basically- RCR can't be run by an individual or individuals with ever-changing motivations/private interests.
All WFTDA can do is revoke the league's membership in WFTDA (which only means exclusion from the Big 5 and WFTDA insurace). But they'll probably try to work with the league to get things sorted out.

Uh huh. I wonder if the papers are signed for that one...
I contacted League President Brew HaHa, and asked her about what had been said. “I started the Salt City Derby Girls, I run it, and I own it.”
