Any guesses on what the second one is?
All star game back? Or maybe Boston Shamrocks?
Probably the unveiling of the name for the Vancouver team.
Sounds like the second announcement is a team in New York. A second team for Tsai?
That's next week. Plus that would probably come from the team, not the league.
Hopefully announcing a team in Rochester for 2019-2020...
new Halifax team!!!
How far is Halifax from NYC? Is it feasible that the commissioner could travel to a Big Apple announcement at 1 pm?
I think it is a 2.5 hour flight
The Knighthawks are relocating, according to Halifax Star https://www.thestar.com/halifax/2018/09/13/halifax-scores-new-professional-sports-team.html
If anyone finds a video of the press conference on YouTube or something let me know. For some reason the one that NLL tweeted didn't work for me.
In Curts letter he said "
it was very important for my family and I to make sure that your Rochester franchise would be well looked after."
that seems to suggest the team is still going to be there no?
It does read like that, but Styres said in the press conference he had been looking to move the team for awhile, so I think there may be a gap with no team in Rochester, unless this 1PM announcement is for a new Rochester team, but, I also want to say the commish talked about only adding 1 new team for 2019-20 out West to balance things out, and then adding teams in 2s to keep things balanced
I guess we will find out at 1
The 1PM announcement is Rochester receives an expansion team owned by the Pegulas
According to Lax Philly the next announcement is Boston

Terry and Kim Pegula will be in Rochester for the #NLL’s announcement at 1 p.m. Sounds like Rochester won’t have to wait long to get their new team.
That's not a real source. That's just a fan page.
ah. Didn't know who is behind it
