Brown faced a number of problems early on, including a public feud with players and coaches over not being paid for games played. The issue was eventually resolved, but according to a report, the players and coaches are now planning to file a class action lawsuit over a similar issue after their late game checks were reversed.
Empire head coach Moe Leggett told the Albany Times Union that the team was paid for its last game against the Orlando Predators, which was played on June 9, but a player later realized that the money had been withdrawn from his account.
Then Leggett realized that the same thing had happened to him.

According to Leggett, some members of the team are still owed around $500 or more for their last game of the season.
