I love how Sports Business Daily hasn't "changed its writing style" over the years. They seem so afraid that "any stretch of three or more words" that are in the same order as in the "story" they are referencing wil be "seen as plagiarism."

In any case, the NLL is hosed, because Sakiewicz is "not a guy you want running anything."
Old enough to remember when bashing the ABA was fun.
