I just got an email from one of the team owners in the FBL and this is verbatim: The league we are entering is the Florida Basketball Association FBA and we play in the spring and summer not in the winter like the ABA.

[quote=""Paul S""]I would say 50% of the people who are cognizant of the fact the ABA is still in existence are on OSC. Another 5% are current owners who were daft enough to invest in this fiasco. Finally you have about 40% of people who are basketball junkies and know about this. Oh ya...........th...

Tampa Bay Rain?

Little blurb in the St. Pete Times that the ABA seems to have found another sucker, er, owner for Tampa Bay. http://abalive.com/conferences/expansion/tampa-fl/ Funny thing, it appears they will have their official rollout at the very legit St. Pete Times Forum later this month.

Doesn't one NBA benchwarmer make more than the entire ABA player roster? Only Papa Joe and a few of his crooks, er, cronies make NBA money. "The NBA lockout has been good in many ways," said Davis. "It's opened a window for us." Okay, now jump out of it. "Those kids now have a place to go," said Dic...

[quote=""nksports""]They've had that in summer college baseball for decades and it's been break-even at best with no more than five or six teams able to survive at any one time. That's with no player payroll. You're probably right, I went too far with the no one would notice comment. If a team would...
