PBL is looking better and better by the hour!

Looks like the CBA should have taken the merger offer.

I don't know about Albany, what's the latest on them? Anyone know their latest count for season tickets? I'm wondering where things stand with the Xplosion, while wondering if we have a season. I admit that it would have been nice if the X, the Cavalry, Miners and Skyrockets had switched to the PBL.

I've seen a couple of links to articles claiming that the Silverados are in the midst of moving, not just from the league. According to their website, they are still selling season tickets. I feel for their fans if they leave the area.

Pretty disappointing. I suppose the only hope is that the Texas ABA teams concentrate on scheduling within the state so they might make it through the season with a respectable number of games.

There was a sportswriter in Fayetteville, NC, who wrote that five teams is not a league. It's a group. And in this group we're counting Albany and Minot. Ouch.

I'm disappointed that it's not ten, but 5 is fine with me, as long as another team does not leave. I just want to see the x in action again(I hope others feel the same toward their teams).

KXLF-TV in Butte, MT just reported that the Albany Patroons are looking at possilby relocating there due to lack of season ticket sales.

I'd say that I was making it up, but there's no way I could write something that funny.

Devilvox, I'm not sure what you're referring to, but I can gaurentee that the Albany fans are not amused, if it's true about the Patroons moving.

Devilvox wasn't joking. Here's a link to the report:
