Had my doubts about them being announced, but looks like Butera actually did something. Let's hope there is more to come.

Wonderful news! Let's hope this kickstarts future (or former) franchises into following suit.

Exciting that Adams and the Soul are behind this too. They know what they are doing when it comes to getting local investors and corporate sponsorships. This is very exciting and I assume tomorrow we will hear a little more from Butera and all about other expansion.

Do you know what time the announcement will be made?

Hey Capper, does the 8 ball say Albany will be called the Firebirds?

IMO, it should be a no brainer. An updated logo for today as the old one is VERY dated.

This is a complete Non-Butera Model franchise

The league has either changed strategy, made a one off exception, or totally abandon the butera model

Very interesting

They seem to be taking pages from the original playbooks of the WNBA and MLS... with a more centralized ownership/management structure.

So now we have Philbany joining Baltiwash in the paired ownership. What's next? Tamplando? Cleveburgh?

Maybe they'll use the late 90s/Indiana one as an alternate to bring back for 1 game like 76-25 Zubaz Storm or Milwaukee did a few years ago.

Also, you didn't give me the 8-ball's answer (unless Adam/Jim has it) Wink

Yes, in my mind, Cleveumbus or Clevetroit.

Gilbert has no relationship with Pittsburgh AFAIK... he is closely tied to Detroit, and his AHL team he owns is the farm team for the Blue Jackets.

And he's going into business with the Pistons own Gores to try to bring MLS to Detroit

Yeah, so much for Butera's hard line on NBA/NHL owners only.
