Great halftime piece by TSN - addition by subtraction
Friday night was another great example of how in touch they are with the league and how to promote the great sport of box lacrosse.
They devoted an entire segment to the demise of the Orlando Titans.
But instead of dwelling on the franchise's failure despite its on-floor success, TSN focused on how losing a team has only made the league stronger. In fact, some say it's the strongest it has been, with the most parity.
Although the Boston Blazers have "the Big 3," almost every team in the NLL has benefited from one less team. Despite some players losing jobs, the league is at an all-time high when it comes to depth... and just not with one team, all teams.
You can look at the loss of the Titans as a bad thing for the league, but props go to TSN for the positive spin.
