  1. There was a 45 day clause to get out of the contract before the next season gos into effect. That ended 8 days after the meeting, so the dasher are there for next season. They are in the second year of seven year contract. The stadium can get out of the contract every year. The meeting showed how much the board didn't know about the team
  2. I don't know if this was mention before but what about Rockford, IL? The Chicago Wolfs are about to lose their affiliate with the knight leaving the Blackhawks to move there. This would leave Rockford without a team. I don't see them go to the ECHL with Seattle because of the distance and them having a pretty wide rang of markets to put a team out west with their AHL team.
  3. you should see my indoor/arena football one it probably around 100+ with some research in the markets itself. this is places that already have team and/or I think it would be worth trying
  4. there are only so many good markets when you limit yourself to a specific area and when one owner fails in a market it leaves the market less desirable. you just cant just keep putting different teams in the same market
  5. if the league has to expand out of the south team fold and get burn out pulse it is determined where a owner wants to put a team. the league can't be that picky. I created a google map of the league and potential markets. the fed are in yellow and future markets are black
  6. How that agenda was set up and the emergence meeting in a pandemic seems really weird. They are trying to find a way around the open meeting law because of the pandemic. To replace it with a ushl team doesn't make sence to go to a lower hockey. The ECHL is out of the question. The SPHL doesn't make much sense on the surface. The market is really small and the arena is really small. Then I got to thinking about it and thought that they really want to make a push up north by adding a couple of teams
  7. I think teams in the north QC, Peoria, and Evansville will still get a bad deal especially if they expand into the south. I think Kentucky like Louisville or Lexington and Dayton ohio should be looked at. all three of those cities have there share of question marks
  8. the arena is voting on terminating the lease and holing a emergency meeting and the agenda of the meeting seems very like there is a outside force playing into this. I know people don't see bus league but it seems legit. the link is to the arena website. the meeting got pushed backed to this Thursday. https://palmerarena.com/david-s-palmer-arena-board-of-directors-meeting/
  9. I believe north and south will work better with qc and Evansville being in the league now
  10. Yes I have been really board and thought about it for a while. I hear that the Danville team of the fed are getting pushed out and what to put a sphl team there. At firs thought you would think why would they add a team with a stadium with 2,500 seats when that would force them to sell out to break even. The sphl minimum is 4,000 seats. Then I realized they wanted a north and south division and figure that they bend the rules to make it happen. Pluse it would screw over the feds
  11. I'm new to this league. I'm very interested in minor league sports. I know travel is a huge expense in leagues like the sphl. I think they should find a way to go to divisions. I know that at the state they are now that they cant do that. they would need to get a huge push to get new team up north. What are your thoughts about divisions and how do you think they get there?
