NLL taps breaks on expansion plans

With talks dragging on longer than expected with potential ownership groups. The National Lacrosse League has pushed back expansion until the 2019 season at the earliest.

It is still expected though that the league will expand at some point. With Baltimore as the front runner.  Will the Wings fly again? Better ask Comcast that question.

The NLL is in talks with an ownership group led by RA the founder of the outsiders’ guide to put a team in Podunkville. 🙂
