I would rather see a league with 12 owners like this than a league where teams think they will be a future d-league team and bankrupt less than a year later. I think Wilmington and Cary will have similar franchises. Problem is can they get others to follow their league? Time will tell.
I've got a better idea. Why not have OSC delete your account? Now that would be a positive start. I am tired of hearing you spout off at the mouth due to your personal vendetta with Mark. Thankfully you have been relatively quiet over the past few months. Get a life.
Despite my issues with the CBL, I will say that Mark is busting his tail to make things work in Orlando. He does solid marketing, works hard to get sponsors and is doing what all professional teams should do and that is to get involved in the community. His players are solid citizens and I imagine that if one of them got in trouble with the law, that player would no longer be with the team. Mark is doing things the right way.
I say this after having my issues with Mark when I was with the CBL that have since been worked out. What I learned about the man is that we are both compulsive perfectionists and that we both share a passion for the minors.

Hey man...I didn't mean to upset you for being a success. Who knew I would be able to scrape up enough money to run a minor league basketball franchise with my poor self? I know...I know...it wasn't supposed to go this way, and it cuts you deep to know that you were completely wrong about me. Don't sweat it...a lot of people were. What can I say...I love a good challenge.
Heck, maybe I'll make my next long-term goal to build my own venue. What do you think, buddy? Tell me how crazy I am! You know what...maybe I'll try to solve the world hunger issues! We'll start with you. Send me your address, and I'll order you a pizza and have it delivered to your house. How long has it been since you've had a real pizza anyway? It's on me! No sweat! What kind of toppings do you like? Sour grapes? Spilled milk? Crow? You tell me! I'll make it a large!
"What do your daily actions say about the pursuit of your dreams?"
"Our Dreams are the roadmap that God uses to get us to where He intends for us to be!"
"When I stand before God at the end of my life
I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.'"
"Delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart."
--- Psalm 37:4
What the crap.....I take up for you and he gets a pizza.....wait a minute....I get it.....Well played.
