Western Canadian Super Mega Ultra Stars League
I think Canada is more likely than anything else right now. Just because of distance and no dance partners.
Article on the Winnipeg Goldeyes website written by the voice of the Goldeyes Paul Edmonds says that he believes Edmonton will be add to the list of AA teams for the 2013 season, and Fort McMurray to be added in 2014 when there ballpark is complete. Poor Calgary get it together.
Read the article for yourself. It's just Paul's opinion, but he has been with the Goldeyes doing play by play for over 15 years.[/quote]
The "voice" isn't exactly who I'd go to for actual fact but he may know more than most.
The problem is that Edmonton is all alone. They may have to pay a very hefty subsidy or see Winnipeg a whole lot of times.
if the 3 teams all came in at once or there was a plan for it then I'd lean more that way.
I say it's 50/50 on WCL(ok, I'm sure it might have a better name than Western Canada League) or AA but only if they can get their "ducks in a row" or find a way to subsidize the low end teams of the AA. They're the ones that would be a problem when adding teams so far out.
I would submit that we have now entered about a 30-45 day window wherein an annoucement must be made since leagues like the AA tend to release their next season's schedules in late September or early October.
Your thoughts? Agree/disagree?

Patrick LaForge, the custodian of the dormant independent baseball franchise owned by the Edmonton Oilers, will not toss aside the prospect of Triple A ball eventually returning to the city.
But the immediate focus is on the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball.
We think we could be in that league and they think wed be a fine addition, LaForge said about the AAIPB. Were just talking through the details.
This would be very doable for next summer, said LaForge, the Oilers CEO, but there are still some things to be done.
