What are your thoughts on these new leagues beginning in 2011? Will they be financially viable? Do you think these leagues will swallow up the GBL & Can-Am leagues and force these leagues out of business? Are the committed teams strong choices and will be strongly supported by their community?
Your thoughts would be appreciated

I would put my two cents in but I'm going to keep my thoughts to myself about the staff of both leagues :)

Well Mike H,
The point is about these forums is about expressing your 2 cents worth whether it makes no sense( or cents) or at all. If you have nothing to say, then pocket your 2 cents and save it for a comment you feel is worth spending!!!

Okay since you want to be a wise ass. The Super Indy League is a joke. Jamie Toole is the head of it (DUH) who couldn't run a successful league with the SCL.
The Pecos League is nothing more than a new version of the Continental League. Maybe research the two leagues and you would have your answer to the question at hand! :)

Well for the superindyleague your right, they have had same website with no updates for the past 2 yrs, as for Pecos league your way off. The cbl had a few few people who really made it tank, and those people Ron Barron and Frank Snyder have nothing to do with this league and wont. Andrew Dunn ran a successful Las Cruces team last yr and will front the Pecos league and is off to a good start with looking to be 8 solid franchises, and more to join if and when United league folds over. Andrew has a solid reputation running his collegiate leagues in Houston and will see this league off to a good start and keep it stable.
The Pecos has a good shot with some of the southern Golden league teams in turmoil and United leagues defunct the Pecos can become the Frontier of the south west.

Excellent insight . From an outsiders point of view, It's easy to be painted by the same brush when a guy like Andrew Dunn is grouped/linked together with Barron and Snyder. I understand what Mike is saying. It is very easy to be skeptical of the guy and any new venture he pursues. I didn't know Andrew was successful in running the collegiate leagues. This new PL he is commisioning could very well be his way of breaking away from the failed partnerships of league's past. He is putting his reputation on the line here with the new league and not afraid of stamping his name all over it. And he is also investing in his dream as well buying owning one of the teams. I have been reading some of the local articles from the proposed teams, and it seems Andrew is hands on going nose to nose with the various city council members promoting his league and selling the benefits of a community supported team. One can't get good unless lessons learned from one's mistakes. Good for Andrew. He is not afraid to put his balls out there. I wish him all the luck and am excited for the league to start play. Thanks RR35, great info.
