Why dont you call Doyle and ask if the PBL ( the league that pays travel ref and uniforms and doesnt take an expansion fee or monthly maintenance fee) owes any team money....the answer is NO..call and ask...BUT wait...Doyle will be calling you soon about your slanderous comments on OSC... LOL

Isnt it a shame, that BC cant make money after being in 2 leagues after 5 years? Even with the PBL picking up alot of costs they still couldnt make it?
Word has it that you were an employee for BC.....in what capacity.? You know I will find out sooner than later.........

I'm not a Employee of the Knights and I'm not a spokesperson for the team but I'am a big Knights fan asking the same questions you are putting on the CBL. The reason I don't call is they are not truthfull IMO, If you look on the PBL board some of the same questions about your league have been asked but I don't see you addressing those. I just think IMO you shouldn't rip on others when some of the same issues have been raised about the PBL(thats slanderous as well) Oh and I really don't care if Doyle or Sev call me I'm not impressed with them or their league or you. You should quit thinking your above everyone else and can do whatever you please. P.S not a PBL fan.

Did I miss something here, what was slanderous that was said? and if message boards speak is slanderous and open for lawsuits, then man o man, this will be a real feast for the lawyers in this country.

Do minor leagues in general have problems that need to be addressed ... absolutely. Will the CBA be back ... maybe, but not as we know it. Is the PBL perfect ... no. However, the PBL comes the closest to doing things the right way. Everyone on this board would like to change somethings the PBL is doing. Keep in mind, this is a two year old league. There will be and are growing pains, trial and error, good and bad. The bottom line is ... there is no perfection in minor leagues. Blame it on Joe Newman, the NBA, or whoever ... it doesn't matter. At least the PBL is a viable minor league. :mrgreen:

Time will tell and I really don't think the way they do buisness is in their favor. So we shall see.

Well, the state of minor league basketball is in their favor, and that, unfortunately, trumps any poor decisions that anyone might disagree with.

Someone said it in another thread, but I'll reiterate: The league is 2 years old, yet they have managed to escalate themselves as one of the strongest viable options on the US minor league circuit!
