Status of Philly Barrage

Postby Rob Graff on Mon Dec 17, 2007 4:24 pm

Inside Lacrosse is running the following headline on their front page at 3:20 PM Central time:

BREAKING NEWS
Barrage players to be dispersed?


But nothing is linked to it.

If anyone knows anything - feel free to spill it. I'm also checking with some people.

It seems that Pro Outdoor Lacrosse just does better outside the "hot" areas. I think only Boston really does well with attendance in the East.

I don't know, but I sure do like a Ryan Boyle - Brendan Mundorf - Matt Brown attack line in Denver.

Here's a bit more news. It all about the $$$... the front office doesn't care about the sport... the Barrage is just a card in their hand that they want to deal away.

Philly did have the 2nd lowest avg attendace for 2007 though...

Look for Philadelphia to play "home" games around the country at potential expansion sites.
