View Full Version : Montreal/Toronto?

I don't follow the PBL very much, so I apologize if this has been asked already, but has anyone heard anything out of Montreal or Toronto?

The reason I wonder is if perhaps Toronto popping up on the PBL's site is related to why the Ontario Red Wolves were dropped from the ABA's site? I realize that was a no before, but since I don't follow the PBL too closely, I thought things may have changed.

I also wonder whether the Montreal team is the Royal from the ABA jumping sides? Why they wouldn't have done so before this season is beyond me. But perhaps the idea was to play in the ABA this season and try and attract teams to the PBL from the strong ABA NE Division.

The Royal aren't exactly a great franchise. They don't draw crowds, they randomly switch venues and they often travel with less than 8 players. At least they play their games though.

From what I heard, the Montreal team will actually be playing in Verdun, a suburb of Montreal. It doesn't appear they are the same team.
