    Talk about a dissapointment. Definitely not what I suspected and don’t see it lasting mote than another year. Most of the guys didn’t get paid and was very misleading and unorganized. Def the lowest level of Indy ball there is. I feel for the players joining next year

    The Empire “Pro” League has a new expansion franchise… ON the moon…. Until an ownership group is found they’ll play all their games on earth

    they can’t be serious…a field with no lights and no fan base in plattsburgh…who the heck is funding this one… the travel alone is incomprehensible. can’t wait to watch this unfold.

    It looks like Plattsburgh has fixed its typo.
