I like the name 'Crushers' personally. I have not heard anything on the Milwaukee team. Is there any new news?

Give the coach some credit

I don't think enough credit was given to the coach for the success the Rage enjoyed. It does take a team to win...but it take a leader to get them to win consistantly.

Unfortunately, this oversimiplication of what it takes to run a professional sports organization runs rampant. For example, to think that you can spend $3,500 on advertising is woefully inaccurate. ...

Milwaukee next on someone leagues list

I cannot agree more! All to many times teams think with the "if I build it they will come" mentality." They could not be more incorrect. Instead they should adopt the adage, "If I want fans to...

Not a fan of the league

Please understand my point. I am not a fan of the league but my question is, when is the 'owership' of the team called into question? You seem to jump that level and go right to the league. I...

I wonder if the schedulers took in to account the fatigue factor or the fact that some of these players have jobs and may not be able to take all that time off.
