I stopped following the league when my hometown team (Halifax) left the league last season and posts on here and the limited press coverage don't seem to tell me much... so how has the season been?...

That game was a free ticket give away from Rogers, but wasn't counted in the attendance numbers since it was pre-season. I am surprised that Halifax's average isn't in the 3200-3500 range this year,...

There is no team in Montreal. I assume you mean Quebec. They are not benefiting from winning, they're second last in the league in attendance only behind whatever the hell is going on in Oshawa.

Is it viable in the long term? I have no idea.
But I would be absolutely shocked if we saw a team fold mid-season. 3 ownership groups are proven (Halifax, SJ and Quebec), 3 have big money backers...

They can't secure a lease in Kingston, so Kingston are out.

Ownership group is looking for another market, maybe Moncton.

Oshawa and London might be lonely out there.

League Rules

From the Chronicle Herald:



36 game schedule. 18 home dates. No regional play. I guess it's hard to make divisions with an odd number of teams.

I don't understand how anyone can say with a straight face that a league owned and operated by James Schutz is trying to improve the integrity of minor league basketball. What a joke.
