If a merger happens, I think the CBA will have to make more concesions, even though they have the history, the better coaches overall, and better players as a whole. I just think the PBL would rather stay the way they are, than merge and change.
Time will tell.

The 'wigged one' knows what is going on but as usual is trying to spin it like they are fools and he is not.
The 'weak sisters' will be invited to leave. I think that a PBL/CBA merger is the only way to save independent ownership at this level in minor league basketball.
I don't know the PBL, but would assume Dallas and Jacksonville would be out, and Rochester, Reading, Maryland and Wilmington would be in.
While I can certainly understand the PBL concern, their season is just too short. That is a concept that didn't work, either to establish the teams (the idea was to cut out the early season when it is hard to sell seats anyway) or keep them all running for the season.

IN a game versus the Miners just before/after your record crowd there were barely more X fans than there were Miners fans... You have to agree as I was there and I know... I am not sure what was happening at your record crowd game but from your pics posted the crowd has been sparse at each.. The attendance numbers the X release doesn't scream stability. Sorry but thats just the way it appears by the numbers..
What in your opinion makes the X one of the stronger franchises?
