Mercenaries stiff armed by Mt. Clemens High School:

If you're familiar with minor league football in Michigan then you've probably heard of the Michigan Mercenaries. The Mercenaries are the team based out of Mt. Clemens Michigan that you see practicing at Mt. Clemens high school every Thursday night. They've done that for the past three years since relocating from East China Michigan after their first two seasons. However this year you won't see them there, you will see the Detroit Cougars a member of the Rivals Football League.

The Cougars were approved by Mt. Clemens high school and the Mercenaries were not despite the fact that the Mercenaries or Mercs had paid over $10,000 in field rental money to M.C.H.S over the past three years. That was money that could be used to benefit the athletic program or pay addition staff. The Mercenaries even stated they had made a $2000 contribution to Mt. Clemens which was a donation. Only to have Mt. Clemens turn around and stiff them in the end.

While the move from Mercs to Cougars seems to be in Mt. Clemens future. It was tough news to hear for Mercenaries advocates, the news comes just two month before the regular season kick-off. It also leaves the Mercenaries now scrambling for a place to play. "It was tough to hear because we always seen Mt. Clemens as our home" said Mercenaries head coach Jonathan Kuzma. "I have no hard feelings and wish Mt. Clemens the best but I'd be lying if I said it I'm a 100 percent ok with it. Something about it feels unethical" the coach was also quoted saying. While Mt. Clemens hasn't broke any laws it is clear that they rubbed the Mercs the wrong way.

The Mercenaries have been in negotiations with L'anse Creuse school district about using their facility but haven't reached an agreement yet.
