Tonight's Championship Game Canceled
(Halifax, NS): Due to a physical alteration between the Halifax Rainmen and the Windsor Express the game has been canceled citing safety concerns for its players and coaches.
Rainmen Owner Andre Levingston expressed his concerns stating, "Today is truly a black eye for our league, when the games is not safe for players to compete there is a problem. Levingston added " We have to do a better job of governing our league and putting principles in place where there are strict consequences.
I've played basketball all my life and have the utmost respect for the game, but what I witnessed today leaves me sadden, not just for me but for our fans, our partners and community who fought so hard to get us to this point.
I'm sure today's incident will come with much criticism which is well deserved, but I'm hoping it serves as a wake up call that we the owners must do a better job.
Again my sincere apologies to the entire Rainmen family and I hope that we can one day soon re earn your trust."
