SBD/20/Leagues Governing Bodies

MY EYES HAVE SEEN THE LEAVING OF THE GLORY FROM ATLANTA

          After two seasons of "battling poor attendance and
     losing money," the ABL Glory will not return to Atlanta next
     season, according to Celeste Whittaker of the ATLANTA
     CONSTITUTION.  The team will move to Nashville, Tampa or St.
     Louis, with a decision by April 1.  ABL CEO Gary Cavalli:
     "The bottom line was just so bad.  We have lost a tremendous
     amount of money down there."  The team averaged 2,780 its
     first season at Morehouse Arena and 3,898 in its second
     year, but "much of its wasn't paid."  The league "will not
     retain anybody from the team's front office."   Whittaker:
     "The Glory suffered from a lack of overall marketing. 
     Despite the big local names, the players didn't make many
     local appearances" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/20).
