So, if they don't give two hoots about drawing crowds, they certainly don't give two hoots about broadcasting the games that would just cost more money (internet broadcast rights and an announcer) Its not just the Reds but most of the FSL teams seem to fall into the same catagory. Sometimes I wonder if they don't try to make the FSL a miserable place to play just to test the players' mettle and seperate the wheat from the chaff.
Sounds like you're describing the GCL team in Sarasota.
