Wherefore Salem-Keizer

The minor league casualties in the Northwest League are the Boise Hawks (who will join the now independent Pioneer League) and he Salem-Keizer Volcanoes. That’s arguably 2 of the 4 lesser stadiums in the league, while Everett is arguably in the ballpark, except the Mariners most certainly fancy the ...

Re: Major League Baseball Hostile Takeover Of Organized Minors

First off... I think the 3 people who kept monitoring this board might have had a pool on when the plug would be pulled. There was so little happening here that I awash practically shocked when I remembered it last week and the board was still here. So if this doesn’t take, it’s our fault. ;) “Goofy...

Re: Major League Baseball Hostile Takeover Of Organized Minors

Despicable? Maybe. Goofy? Plenty of that. Judging from the invitations out today, there’s a semblance of rhyme and reason to the overall proposal, but some head-scratchers. Thing is... inevitable. They’re re going to be pressed on paying a living wage to minor leaguers, there’d better be a way to pa...

Re: And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

Time of actual death... two days ago. The analysis over at another site is kind of interesting. Ted Leonsis gave this the three-year ride, wanted to see if the gambling angle would work for that league (and then incorporate it into his major teams), and decided it didn't work for the AFL. It sounds ...

Re: Major League Rugby

I made a little road trip back in April to Denver and Salt Lake (and a little Nevada border town thrown in for good measure). I kind of get a kick out of the Glendale Raptors. Small Denver suburb, bills itself as Rugby Town USA, has what was (up to the middle of last year) the only "rugby-speci...

Louisville. Sacramento. Atlanta?

Who'd have thunk that the WNT political angle would carry over into NWSL and spawn better attendance for the league? Louisville has been announced (2021). Sacramento is all but announced (2020, supposedly). Atlanta is rumored. Supposedly (if we're to believe commissioner-speak, always a proposition ...

https://www.tsn.ca/dundon-aaf-considering-discontinuing-1.1280574 BTW... this is the guy who came in saying he had as much as $250 million to keep this league afloat after it nearly croaked in the first two weeks of operation. I think the strings attached to that statement are now made public. The ...

[quote=""Sam Hill""]Hey, I was right! So, tell me this, 4th&Long and all the other spring sycophants: how come, no matter how many times alternative leagues fail, you all insist there's a huge market for it? How come every time, the market proves it's not as interested as you...
