After doing some research, things are leading me to believe that Pittsburgh needs to walk before it can run when it comes to Professional Lacrosse. Seems that it is a Football and Hockey town. However, there may be a way that we can take some "baby steps".
There is a new minor indoor league ready to launch as early as 4th quarter 2010. The cost of entry is exponentially lower than the MLL or NLL. This may be more of a palatable solution for not only me and my investors but also you the fan base upon entry at the gate.
I do realize that box lacrosse removes some of the purity of the game, but I am looking at this option as a way to bring more exposure (at any level ) to lacrosse in Pittsburgh.
As always, your comments are well received.
