    Man, they don't waste any time do they?? National championship one night, next morning, you're on a pro team... Can you imagine College football/NFL working like that?

    Their season starts in May I think, so they need to work quickly.

    you all laugh (and I could be way wrong here), but I think I remember reading that they have posted a profit overall every year since the league began.

    All it takes are 3-4 thousand in the stands to cover the costs of paying these players 40-50 g's a year and most teams get that and some.

    I emphasize I could be way wrong, b/c I know a few teams relocated, etc... so I might be wrong. I just think I read that.

    Hell, if we had a team up here in Bossier/Shreveport, I'd take my daughter to the home games. She loves women's basketball.
