Dundon, who also owns the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes, spent $70 million in February to help cover payroll for the AAF.
The pro-football league still had two weeks left in its regular seasons, plus an expected two weeks of postseason play that likely won’t happen now.
Sources: The AAF will suspend all football operations today. New owner Tom Dundon will lose approximately $70 million on his investment. Dundon makes decision against wishes of league co-founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian.

Salt Lake City was one of eight markets with an AAF pro-football team. The Stallions will wrap-up what is now likely to be their only season with a 3-5 record.
