I feel like this is a disaster waiting to happen.

St. John's couldn't support the QMJHL, which had unpaid players, with about 1000 fans per game. I have real doubts that basketball will draw more than 500 per game after the first night. Maybe that's totally off base and out of touch, but I don't see skeets ponying up $20 to go to a basketball game when there's a food court to hang out in at the Village.

My money would be on this team not making it through the season. Player salaries, inflated travel costs, questionable stadium terms (most likely), are going to put this thing behind the 8-ball before it even gets off the ground.
