I had a chance to meet and sit with Brandon at a game in Katy when he had a team there. He treated me great. I don't know him other than from that game and from here, but he's been cool toward me. Like everyone else here, I'm sure we had a back and forth over some topic (I think it may have been att...

I'm happy to see Bryan Blake coming back to Houston as a head coach. I liked working with Bryan when I was a compliance officer with the Copperheads (the season before I assumed media responsibility). Really liked Coach Biles too. If they secure a good arena to play in I'll have to check them out.

Televising minor league sports is pretty much a losing proposition. You do a game every now and again to showcase your product....hope someone sees it....and then they come to the games. You do it on a regular basis ONLY if you can sell commercials...in ADDITION to your current partnership deals. Yo...

The people who started the Pirates last year were very nice people....but they had no idea what they were doing. I met with them several times about a variety of things and always came away with the conclusion that I liked them a lot...but they were in trouble. I'm surprised the Pirates ever played ...

After taking some time to consider this, I regret saying anything negative about Ron. Thats not my style...I've always tried to conduct myself better than that....so I apologize to Ron and the guys who run this site...especially Ron. While I'm not a fan of Ron's style or the way he can embellish thi...

One of my complaints with arena/indoor football is the quality and timeliness of which web sites are updated. My experience is that very few owners or managers give a damn about quality content...even if someone is giving it to them virtually free. I'm not going to give specifics but I used to write...

Well...I guess thats the basis of the whole issue. It's not what they paid for. They bought arena football tickets. ;)

There are too many moving parts here. We can't possibly determine the outcome...but I'd be confident enough to proceed against the team. You can sue them for your money and lawyer fees as well. It could be sorted out by a lawyer who could study the terms of the sale of the Blizzard....and thats prob...

[quote=""Bouncer_Texxx""]Ah but it's not that simple. His ownership group did NOT receive monies from these fans for circus tickets, let alone Arena Football. He is doing them a great service and basically giving away season tickets to those who purchased them from previous owner...
