The league, which is co-founded by Paul Rabil and his brother Mike Rabil, will have their inaugural season begin on June 1, 2019. The league will make stops in 12 “major-market” cities and has a media rights deal with NBC Sports Group. 17 games will be televised on NBCSN, two games, including the championship game, will be on NBC, with 20 more on NBC Sports Gold, a subscription service.

The league’s players will also receive full-time wages, benefits, and equity in the league. The PLL will be the first major North American pro team sports league that offers equity to their players. The financial backing includes companies such as The Raine Group, Creative Artists Agency (CAA), The Chernin Group, and Blum Capital. According to Bloomberg, New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan is also an investor.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
