Found this on PBreserve Home page, figured i would let everyone know
"Tom Fore and the new "NPPL"?
Word on the street is Tom Fore (ARSENAL Owner) is working to put together a new 7man premier league to fill the shoes the NPPL’s shoes. Preliminary plans include running not one but 2(!) Huntington Beach events and a 12-team Pro division. Chuck Hendsch will supposedly be overseeing operations and running the new league.
The “new NPPL” is reportedly planning on having approximately 100 teams per event and maintaining the existing NPPL divisions. Word has it they are currently trying to source the equipment neccessary. The grapevine is abuze with talk on the new league and most importantly, where the teams and money will come from. Chuck Hendsch is said to be bringing approximately $100K to help with funding operations though no one is really sure who (in their right mind) would be forking over such a large amount of cash at this time. With JT and WDP (barely) treading water, Kingman+outside sponsors may be the only ones with enough cash on hand to make such a move. At this point, anything is possible.
What do you think? Is another league viable at this point in our sport? Who is going to be funding the league, and most importantly, what pro teams would bail on the PSP to compete? Sound off in the comments below."
