2040-03: Talons Expansion Plans = Who Cares

Post by jiminyhopkins » Wed Sep 11, 2019 7:55 pm

Phoenix, AZ--

There has been a lot of furore recently in the BBA about another league expansion. Plans have been laid out by the league, though much can be said of the somewhat short adequate notice provided by the League Office. Teams are scrambling to figure out their protection lists and commentators are speculating about league-wide talent impacts.

But not the Talons.

Phoenix has taken a rather nonchalant attitude toward expansion and its effects on the franchise. GM Sean Marko implies that it has to do with a simple fact: Phoenix was an expansion franchise in its own right. "As a team that was quite recently a decade ago the beneficiary of the expansion process, I think it would be a little weird to suddenly once again overreact when the process happens in reverse," he said.

"And yes, we had the benefit from drawing from the EBA teams as well," he continued. "But this time again, it's only two teams. And we can only lose three players. Will those players be valuable? Sure, otherwise the expansion teams wouldn't want them. It's part of the process. Five 10 years ago we certainly took some good players from teams. We also took some more expensive veterans, guys the fans would recognize and support. It all evens out. I'm not worried."

"Just remember this," he concluded. "No team will take anyone that we didn't want them to take."
