[quote=""nksports""]And what makes them think they will succeed in Vegas when so many other ABA teams there have flopped?[/quote]

Just ABA teams? No basketball team in any league has ever survived in Vegas.

Congrats to the Slammers. I went to both Game 3 & 4 of the finals. 3 had a decent crowd, about less than 2,000. Big walk-off HR and good fireworks. Game 4 was dismal crowd, not even 500, I'll bet. NASCAR down the street, weather and the Bears played a role. Had to leave before the game ended because...

Jackhammers in trouble, need cash for bills...

For those of you who haven't read the stories, the team owes a lot of money to people, especially the city of Joliet, who owns the stadium, and the San Diego Chicken. The Chicken's $8,000 check bounced.

Very sad it got to this point.

Best part of the online story was the link in the "comments" section to OSC, exposing the ABA for what it is. I've said it before, will say it again: Rockford has the highest unemployment rate in the state of Illinois. Trying to start a biz in a place where nobody can afford to buy anything, let alo...
