May 24, 2010 - Premier Basketball League (PBL)
As the Premier Basketball League prepares for the 2010-2011 season, its fourth year of existence, the PBL\'s Board of Directors has commenced changes to allow the league to grow and thrive. With the announcement of new teams to be made in the next few weeks, it is necessary that adherence to the league operating standards of a team must be met.
After a review of the operations of all teams that participated in the PBL\'s 2009-10 season, it was determined that the Buffalo Stampede, a team that has been part of the PBL since the 2008-09 season, will not participate in the PBL\'s upcoming season.
"We appreciate the efforts that Vinnie Lesh and the Buffalo Stampede have given for the past two seasons," said Dr. Sev Hrywnak, Chairman of the Board of the Premier Basketball League. "Unfortunately, there have been some operational obstacles that have not allowed the Stampede to reach their full potential, and have kept the team from being able to compete on a level playing field with other teams in the PBL."
