I am not sure what the criteria is for getting an OSC forum title but I just noticed this. Admittedly I have a Wilmington bias and want this league to do well for their benefit.

Lets hope for some good, stable ball from the MidWest to NY in the winter and down into the Carolinas in the spring. The guys down south will seemingly have to get it done by OJT.

OMG, the GUNNERS!

My bad then. I must have misinterpreted this:

It seemed logical to assume that by virtue of this...

Ok, so we started off with you not liking the league name for reasons IMO that indicate a lack of understanding of the region and business in the region.

JK,

You mention the word hobby as if it is a bad thing, and as if you suggest minor league basketball can operate as a self-sustaining business concern. I dont think it can in any market today,...

Luckily we are talking about apples and oranges in this case because there already tens of millions being spent around this term/reference/related brands, both locally and nationally. (Note, watch...

I do not think it is matter of importance of tobacco in the region. It is a matter of history (maybe thats what you mean) and what the words tobacco road, relative to sports, mean to people...

We don\'t talk about these much, but they could be a good approach for some areas and seem to make much more sense in general.
