UBL OFFICIALS TO MEET IN VANCOUVER
Published February 22, 1995
"A high level delegation" of the proposed UBL will be in Vancouver either late this week or next week to discuss ownership and stadium lease issues with B.C. Place officials. Although it is unclear whether the UBL "will present any solid ownership possibilities" with the group, UBL VP of Franchise Development Greg Smith said that "certain numbers of the UBL investor group remain interested" in the Vancouver franchise (Lyndon Little, VANCOUVER SUN, 2/22). In Boston, Michael Gee predicts that the UBL "will not play in 1996, or any other year." The league proposed profit-sharing between players and owners as an "economic incentive" for players joining the league. However, Gee disagrees, writing that "profit sharing works only when there is a profit. And the stars a new league needs to survive, let alone prosper, are unlikely to work on commission" (BOSTON HERALD, 2/19).
