VIRGINIA BEACH- After their loss Friday Night to Sacramento dropped them to 1-3, the news got worse for the Virginia Destroyers. The United Football League suspended operations on Saturday, thus ending their season.   

We spoke with a team official and was told a slightly different version.  They were instead postponing operations until further notice, leaving the door open to the possibility of returning to play in the spring of 2013 and then return in the fall.

A source we also spoke with Saturday noted  that staff and player haven't been paid recently by the team.
