After the season two teams are going to the ABA, Albany and East Kentucky.
Lawton to the PBL and minot folding.
HArd to believe ?...not really, no one is going to pay 100k to join the CBA, no one is going to pay 5 cents to join the CBA. NO one is going to pay 10k a month for travel expenses to the CBA. This was going to happen...the word has leaked out.
two legit minor pro leagues left: PBL and d-league. both have the cash, both have the TV exposure.
( and no...there will be no pittsburgh team)

No its a gross newmanistic exaggeration. Its a streaming internet deal. It's a glorified youtube with a some extra bells and whistles. To call it a PBL deal is misleading since only the Razorsharks use it. If it was a league deal all the teams would be covered not just Rochester home games. Fortunately Vermont and Halifax have their own deals. Halifax's is really a pretty nice setup.
Call Fusion Communication in Davenport Iowa. Ask them about @sportsTV.
They wil kindly tell you that the PBL has a sports TV network all lined up and ready to launch. Currently only a few PBL venues will have TV broadcast ability. Also they are doing some games on the internet as the TV production is being set up. The network will be 24/7 when all is done.
Now that wasnt hard , was it? LOL
Manchester, Vermont and Halifax are all streaming games live through various other websites and Mid-Michigan have a radio deal which is available on line.
If you were serious about wanting to see a PBL game and not just taking the piss out of A1 you can see an archived version of yesterday'sRainmen/Sasquatch game here. Skip to about the 20 minute mark if you want to avoid some serious boringness.
