However in late August Richmond BizSense's writer Aaron Kremer reported that Charlie Hildbold, the general manager, was laid off. He had moved to Virginia to help launch the indoor arena football team. According to Steve Burton, the owner of the team, Richmond Revolution will sit out the 2012 season and be reinstated in 2013. Scott Bass a writer for Style Weekly reported nearly half of the 40 players on the Raiders' training camp roster for 2011 defected from Richmond Revolution, as well as the Revolution's head coach, Steve Criswell. On February 9, 2012 the Virginia attorney general's office filed a civil suit against SportsQuest, the company that owns the Revolution.
This is Richmond's third attempt at trying to build a long lasting Indoor Pro football team. The demise of Richmond Revolution leaves the Raiders the only team in the area. Previous teams were the Speed of the Af2 and the Bandits of the AIFL.
