 The league has received an expansion application from the MGM Resorts group in Las Vegas. Bill Foley and his crew would like to fill more dates at T-Mobile Arena with an NLL team.

That would be a fun road trip for sure.

Press Release

The worst kept secret in the NLL is finally official.  You can find the New York NLL site here

While it is nice to see the NLL expand. We have serious doubts if the New York franchise will be viable long term, given the numerous entertainment options available in the New York area.

NLL December 11 Announcement

When asked about the current two-division system — the NLL is divided into the East and West divisions — Sakiewicz said he’d like to explore more regional rivalries.

“As you know, we have Halifax coming in next year as our 12th team and we’re getting ready to announce our 13th team. We are looking at divisional realignments for next season,” he said. “As we add more teams over the coming years we’re going to evaluate potentially going to even four conferences.”

“That’s the goal. Listen, ultimately we want to make this league as big as it can possibly be so that athletes can play it in on a regular basis, 12 months a year,” he said. “The goal ultimately is to be like an NHL or NBA — a big team league with 30-plus teams and full-time athletes.”

Nick does realize that there is not enough talent to go around to support 30 teams? There is barely enough talent to fill 13 teams. Nick seems dead set on sacrificing the on field product in favor of filling the league coffers with expansion money. 

Want to bet the league screws up realignment?
