Rock Recap

Lots of standing around and outside shots. By the Hawks offense. Hawks defense is absent. Vinc looked human. Hawks look disinterested tonight. Geez that reminds of a team in silver and black.

NLLTV was choppy or not working for the first half. Second half was near perfect.Rock outscored Rochester 9-2 in the second and third quarters to put the game away.

2017 Predictions

Posted: December 27, 2016 in Uncategorized

Can anyone stop the Rush? Can New England finally take the next step?  Will Georgia finally turn the corner?  Rebuilding in Toronto, Rochester and Colorado. Calgary is solid, but still a couple steps behind Saskatchewan. Vancouver will suffer through another long season.

Good for the Swarm. However, we doubt these partnerships. Will lead to a significant increase of fans paying to see the team.

From Sports Business Daily

The NLL yesterday unveiled a new league logo as part of a continued overhaul under Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz. Sakiewicz told THE DAILY that the logo, which was first shown during a ceremony at Mohegan Sun Casino, was about six months in the making. It is designed to highlight the both the league’s history and new mentality, which is entering its 31st season. The NLL designed the logo with Brownstein Group, which it is working with on PR, social media and a new OTT network, NLLTV, which it recently launched in conjunction with Sportsrocket.

Sakiewicz said of the new logo: “Lots of focus group, lots of key-stakeholder feedback, and we feel pretty good: It’s a modern representation.” Saturday’s unveiling comes a few days after the NLL unveiled a three-year deal with Warrior Sports/New Balance, and Sakiewicz said that the league has signed a host of other new partnerships worth an aggregate low seven figures in new revenue that it will be unveiling over the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, the league is also close to finalizing a deal for content distribution in the U.S., and Sakiewicz hinted that it could be with a telecommunications carrier.

It is no secret the league would love to be back in the NY market. Another city to add to potential expansion teams.  Will it happen? Probably at some point. As the Nassau Coliseum is looking to fill dates. 13,000 capacity for hockey and lacrosse.
