Well since everybody in this hate forum receives their information through third hand and fourth hand sources, I find it my duty to share my ABL (worthless) information packet with you. The ABL information packet also contained a copy of Certificate Of Filing of " American Basketball League, LLC " Office Of The Secretary Of State Of Texas, File Number: 801215520
The person who is listed on this document is Ted L Walker. I conducted a Google search and Ted L Walker comes back as being a Houston Attorney.
The person who wrote the ABL solicitation letter identifies himself as Dennis Truax - ABL Commissioner LOL.
Like I said before, " why would anyone want to get involved with an organization (ABL) that has apparently NO loyalty to the league that they are supposedly playing in at the current time? " Just jump ship in the middle of the ocean? This is NO way to set a good example.
BTW, the ABL is asking for a $50,000 franchise fee and a $100,000 line of credit to the beneficiary of the ABL LOLOLOLOL!!!!!! This is funny!
The ABL will be lucky if they get 3 teams for next season. This will NEVER work.[/quote]
Oh, just a shot in the dark here, but maybe because "the league that they are supposedly playing in at the current time" is a complete and utter train wreck?
Just curious, which four teams are relatively stable?
Touched on this once before, either through PM's or e-mails with other posters.
It isn't Joe Newman. Think West Coast...
[quote=""OldSchoolBaller""]So you think it's the owner of the SE Texas ABA Team that is behind the letters that went out to all of the ABA owners regarding starting a new league named the American Basketball League ? Where's your proof? I've received one of those letters and threw it in the trash. The letterhead was cheap and look like it was printed on a $49.00 Lexmark printer. They want $50,000 and a $100,000 line of credit. If they can't even send out a professional looking informational packet (one typed page), then how can they run a professional basketball league? If you are correct that it is the SE TX ABA Team Owner that is behind this new ABL ,I would never get involved with an organization that can't even wait for the season to end before sending out this garbage to fellow teams. I have one word for this " Traitor ". (Disclaimer - I do not know who is behind the ABL and have based this posting on the information provided by A1)[/quote]
...and what does the ABA do? Some CD that contains the ABA's "Keys to
success", and a CEO who promises the moon, but can't even deliver an up-
...and how many of those 54 teams are still playing???
I guess if I was starting a league, I would want to make sure every team could make it through at least one season with no questions asked. Again, my expectations are super low for any league these days.
Waiting for the change of ownership to the name ABA .
BTW If the PBL guys get the rights I will be on there case in the same manner in the need to clean the trash that has been the ABA under Ole Joe and his Joebots.
BTW2 In hindsight, no way the name ABA will ever restored to it's former meaning, too tarnished over the past 10 years. Sad.
The ABA currently and in the last ten years had no interest in support the teams in their league other then to cash their franchise entry fee checks. Sorry no dishonor in trying to save your enterprise from collapse.
