ORLANDO, Fla. -

OrlandoPredators.com is no longer a place for information about Orlando's arena football team. Instead the website redirects to a sex offender registry.

Predators new president Jared Saft told Local 6 last weekend the team discovered their former homepage was redirecting to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's online sex offender search tool.

Saft said it happened during the transition from previous owner David Pearsall to the team's new ownership under Westgate's David Siegel.

The Predators no longer own the domain name, but Saft said the previous owners either sold it or purposely had the site redirect to the sex offender page.

Several calls and emails to Pearsall were not returned.

In a statement, Saft said, "The website issue is one that involves the previous owners of the team. However, we're disappointed in the situation and how it has negatively impacted fans and children who are trying to get information on the team. The Arena Football League has assumed the responsibility of addressing this issue through the legal system. We are confident that the matter will be resolved favorably.

"In the meantime, fans can reach out to us via phone at 844-455-PRED, on social media and find us at MyOrlandoPredators.com. A new website will be launched soon."

The Arena Football League said, "We are confident that the Predators' brand will remain as strong as ever."

Meanwhile, the website continues to redirect to the FDLE website.

Mom Kelli Smith said she thinks it's horrible that children could innocently discover sex offenders while searching for information on an arena football team.

"I wouldn't like it if my kids were typing that in and pulled up a bunch of sexual predators," Smith said.
