Default Yet another musical contest/concert tour?

Only the names change year in, year out; here we go, yet again, with the promises...


Indianapolis, IN. The American Basketball Association (ABA) www.abalive.com today announced that it has re-launched its ABA Entertainment Division in association with Buddy Walker Entertainment. “It has long been our goal to fuse music and entertainment with sports,” stated Joe Newman, ABA CEO. “We’ve tried this several times before, but it has not worked out as we had hoped it would. We believe our arrangement with Buddy Walker will help to bring this initiative to fruition. With nearly 90 teams nationwide and the back-up of UBC-TV, we believe that adding a variety of entertainment initiatives at affordable prices will make a great impact.”
“We are extremely pleased to be a part of the ABA family,” added Walker. “We have some exciting things in the works including a nationwide concert tour, a number of on-line music opportunities, and the launch of an American Idol/X-Factor/America’s Got Talent/Voices worldwide talent contest that will provide opportunities to hundreds of thousands of artists of all types to get the exposure they want and deserve. There will be “no losers” with this exciting new format which we will announce shortly.”

The ABA provides almost around the clock hilarity. Most of it is unintended humour which can be funnier than almost any other.

Unintended humour number 8426 for the ABA is this zinger..............."There will be “no losers” with this exciting new format which we will announce shortly.”

Oh yes there will be "losers" Buddy. Sadly there will be plenty of losers.

Owners losing money
Players losing dreams, paychecks, trust in fellow man.
Fans losing if they buy a ticket to a game that doesn;t play
Joe losing integrity (I know I know but someone must still trust him)
Basketball as a sport losing as this Franken-league stumbles along

oh and for Buddy...........

Those fans, parents, friends and members of the artists who are going to be left hanging when this this thing collapses. See anything will collapse under its own weight in the ABA, the ABA is such a fragile disaster-waiting-to-happen that it will almost CERTAINLY fall apart.

So while you may think you are honestly providing up and coming artists to be the next coming of a 'Gangnam style' type craze. Unfortunately you have hooked your wagon to the ABA. ALWAYS TAKE THE UNDER WITH THE ABA.

Due to numerous threats of legal action from certain people.......all of the above is my opinion only and it should be noted that I have never invested in the ABA. It is simply one mans opinion.

I'm still waiting on that promised ABA Snoop Dogg Tour (even though it's Snoop Lion now).

Wait... I'm confused. According to this press release:


Indianapolis, IN. The American Basketball Association (ABA) www.abalive.com today announced that the Nashville Soul has new ownership. “We are very pleased that Paul and Robert Allsup have assumed the ownership of the Nashville Soul,” stated Joe Newman, ABA CEO. “Together, they bring many years of experience in the entertainment business, primarily in Nashville, to the league and they are filled with many creative new ideas for making the ABA basketball and entertainment experience even more exciting than it already is. It is really going to be a fun team.”
The team will be owned by Unheard Voices Entertainment, LLC, a company involved in recording, concerts, movies and films. Paul Allsup has worked with recording artists including Michael Bolton, Rod Stewart, Smokey Robinson and many others. The company is ready to launch a Pay Per View Concert network as well as conduct a national talent search like X Factor, American Idol, America’s Got Talent called Unheard Voices. “The ABA has always said it wanted to merge sports and entertainment,” said Allsup. “Well, they have not seen anything yet. If there’s ever a place for that to happen, it is in Nashville and we plan to do just that – in a big way.”
This team will be owned by Unheard Voices Entertainment, LLC, which is the Allsup brothers. Where is Buddy? Also note the similarities in the wording of this release to the other release. Unfortunately, I cannot find a date for this release.
