What is there to do in Minot that can get you in so much trouble?
Accused of being a Cyber Terrorist by Joe Newman.
This league (NIFL) is like a frickin' cockroach. You could throw a nuclear bomb at it and it would still survive
So I'd rather spend a quarter of an ABA franchise to repair my car, as opposed to spending a franchise and a half to get a new car that might have some planned obsolescence that causes it to break down 5 days after the end of the warranty period.

I don't know what kind of interest there is for tourists, aside from the local bars, but any pro team athlete is under a microscope, since they are trying to bring in fans for their games. Publicity like this can be bad for the team, whether or not it's true. It does not matter how small or big the city is, an arrest is bad news.
Do you think this would be a problem had they stayed in San Jose?

The Skyrockets are clearly a big deal in Minot, and in this transitional season, Minot has been a modest success in attendance, and a good franchise in the league. That is a good thing for the CBA, except when the players are charged with crimes.
If the same thing happened in Anderson, Indiana, I think the Herald Bulletin would still ignore it in the same manner they have ignored the Alley Cats all season.
