Only real positive is that both of these teams (Jax, Dallas) were going to be purged in the off season. (That was no secret.) Whoda thunk that team that showed up in Wilmington may in fact be the Dallas representative for the remainder of the season?

I personally thought the league and the Dallas owner would work it out til the end of the year. Anyone know if the players, coaches, and venue there were getting paid?

Posted this in another thread:

Just received a call from Erin Patton of the Defenders to say that release was not accurate and was sent out prematurely by the PR folks. He told us to expect updated information tonight.

Umm... how does a release like that even get written if it's "premature"?

Dallas and Jax are a reminder that a league is only as strong as its weakest link. And any joke about the weakest link in any other league would be mean-spirited, and off-topic in this thread, so I won't do it.

Default Dallas & Jax Team Owners

The jacksonville and Dallas owners are a joke ! They are trying to put forth the ultimate spin! We didn't pay our bills , we failed and its the leagues fault. Putting out these releases do they really think the public is that stupid?They admit the league is paying travel ect and yet they can't pay the bills. The only thing the league can be blamed for is letting them in in the first place but the league was desperate and not ready to play this year.Dallas was never ready!

rider, what you say is largely right. dallas and jax should never have started the year. the league probably needed more time to get fully ready, but I dont think it really had a choice without risking the good markets they had. completing the full schedule with some entities known as "dallas" and "jax" will be a victory at this point.

Its good that the league feels obligated to have "these" teams finish the season unlike another league, so at least thats a good sign from the PBL. Does this make a merger/buy out more likely for next season?

I'm told we'll know later today. Regardless of the outcome, a team representing Dallas will continue to play in the PBL, according to what I was told.
