Finally

Looks like the Toros could use either a scoring SG (especially if Malik Hairston isn't sent down) or a true PF. I don't know much about the rookies in the draft, but among the vets, it would be nice...

That fits my "hater with an axe to grind" criteria. It's a valid criticism, but you've let it distort your objectivity when it comes to other aspects of the league.

hmm

I doubt the D-League makes any money on tryouts. The most the Toros could have possibly received in fees is $17,500 if registration maxed out and everybody applied late. Subtract from that venue...

checked their schedule

Austin Regulators?

:p

Looks like they're a road team this season. Nice cluster of seven Texas teams though.

And a few complete schedules in September? Color me impressed. Now play them all.

Was there anything concrete announced to avoid a repeat of the two biggest embarrassments of the past season -- teams' folding midseason and the playoff debacle?
