The NLL now has nine teams, and Sakiewicz said, "I've got my eye set on getting to 16 as soon as we possibly can." Stevens noted "off-season buzz" had at least two new franchises "entering the league" for the '17 season. Sakiewicz: "We have some markets currently identified that we're going to work on."

I love how Sports Business Daily hasn't "changed its writing style" over the years. They seem so afraid that "any stretch of three or more words" that are in the same order as in the "story" they are referencing wil be "seen as plagiarism."

So they do stupid, distracting things like write "would not name cities" in quotes.

Or maybe they are just so unskilled as writers that they are "unable to paraphrase."

In any case, the NLL is hosed, because Sakiewicz is "not a guy you want running anything."
Old enough to remember when bashing the ABA was fun.
