Yes, Avalanche leaves the NXL

this is hot off the press:

After considerable thought I, Ed Poorman team owner of St Louis Avalanche, have decided to no longer compete in the NXL. In a time when the costs are ever increasing for teams to participate and attend both the PSP/NXL and NPPL, the time has come to make this decision and concentrate on just one league. Although Avalanche would love to compete in the NXL the cost just out weights the rewards. As owner of the team I could not handle all the extra expenses when sponsorship dollars have decreased this season. All the players of Avalanche have done their best to help raise revenue by holding clinics, but it is still not enough to be able to attend both leagues. The entry fee alone for the NXL costs the team $6000.00 per event. That breaks down to $1200.00 per match or $40.00 per minute unless you make Sunday. The team has chosen to concentrate all of its funds, efforts and focus on the NPPL Super 7 format, hopefully this will allow Avalanche to become a top 3 team in both the Pro and Semi-Pro divisions. Avalanche wishes only the best to the league and the teams who continue to compete in the NXL.

Ed Poorman

A lot of people have associated this with a "down fall" of our team and that could not be farther from the truth. Avalanche is still going strong and we have lots of faith in ourselves and are very eager to watch our potential play itself out in the near future.

yeah, what drew said. this is not the end by a long shot. this year has been the most difficult for every team in both series. So as far as this season, Ed had to make a choice.

I never did the math to figure out that it cost people 40 dollars a minute to play in the NXL. I have a feeling this is going to be a forshadowing for many other teams.

they have been having more success at the professional level with NPPL then anything else, and as far as outside exposure for their sponsers, i see pb on regular comcast commercials now (its so cool) and they have a regularly airing show with fsn, not to mention the success of the webcast and the sponsors that had produce (chick fila, MAd croc and yea i am even going to mention headblade).

i mean two back to back finals, and doing so at the 2 biggest events is something to be happy about, the army made sunday every event so far i think and buff. was a fluke for lance (i should had said hi the MR. Poorman when i saw him,). I think it will work out for them in the end.
