Just looked on the PBL site and Minnesota is now listed as a team for 08-09. Looked on Minnesota site and still shows playing this year and continued season ticket sales. Not trying to be negative.

My guess would be the venue fell through. The Roy Wilkins Auditorium seems like a stretch for this level of basketball.

Venue wasn't an issue, PBL is second coming of the ABA, No $$$$. Just alot of hype!

And you know it wasn't an issue because....?

Pretty stupid thing to say, even if your only purpose is to disparage the PBL by equating it to the ABA. Several ABA teams have had problems securing a venue, so that would actually support your claim.

http://www.pblpro.com/MINNESOTA%20RIPKNEES%20TO%20HOST%20PLAYER%20TRYOUT S%20AUGUST%2025-26%20FOR%20INAUGURAL%20PBL%20SEASON.htm

Player tryouts in August and no team less then 2 months later? I give in to
the fact that this league needs at least 1 year before we declare it as
A.B.A. II. But it isn't getting off to a very good start.

Anyone know if these tryouts happened? If not, the P.B.L. should have
removed the post...It also contains at least two other false facts.

Minnesota was the team that began this league. Now that the schedule has finally been released, they back out?

No, Rochester and Maryland began it. Minnesota was #5.

Hope to hear more info when "Ripknees Weekly" comes out.
