Any other takers to fill their spots at the BOK center?

Won't be the Talons or the 66ers, that's for sure...

IMHO it was Cameron-Box Sports who paved the way to throw the Tulsa Talons under the bus and selling them off to San Antonio in short order... it was painfully obvious they couldn't care less about Tulsa's Arena Football team when the owners started spinning the media on how disappointed they were with attendance within the first few home games after Mr. Cameron and Mr. Box of OKC bought into the ownership group.  http://www.tulsanow.org/forum/index.php?topic=14172.0  

The Thunder just moved the 66ers to OKC, so NBA D-League is not an option... http://www.newson6.com/story/26055434/thunder-to-move-66ers-to-okc

Don't get me started on the Tulsa Revolution indoor soccer team.  They're in over their heads in a league that can't even decide on whether a goal is worth one point...

The Major Arena Soccer League is expected to officially announce its new rules and policies on Wednesday. The oddest, of course, is that only four teams will use the multi-point system that the Rochester Lancers played with in the Major Indoor Soccer League the past three year, while the other 19 will use the single-point system, just like a goal is a goal in outdoor soccer. Only Rochester, Harrisburg, Baltimore and Syracuse from the Eastern Division will use two- and three-point goals. Detroit, the fifth team in the Eastern Division, will go with single-point, making this even stranger. Yes, I know in baseball the American League uses a designated hitter and the National League doesn't, but this is still an odd way to run a league. Basically, the home team's rule apply and based on the Lancers schedule, 17 of their 20 matches will be played using the muti-point system.

The owners in the new MASL, a combination of former Professional Arena Soccer League clubs and former MISL teams

Frankly, I really wish TU Men's basketball would go back to playing at least some of their home games downtown... but alas...

I guess I can now skip attending my first Shock game.

I went late last season, when the team was still in the hunt for a playoff spot.
Skylar Diggins and Courtney Paris were worth the price of a ticket, and I had a good time, but...
There was so much overkill with the PA Announcer, t-shirt gun, canned cheers/chants, cartoon mascot jumping off a mini-trampoline, etc...

IMHO, authentic Tulsa is the Chili Bowl and Crybaby Hill and hopefully, the Tulsa Athletics with our grassroots group continuing to use the fairgrounds and hosting the Tulsa Rugby Club and our Aussie Rules Football team, the Tulsa Buffaloes... http://www.tulsabuffaloes.com/

As for the children of Tulsa who will soon be deprived of their WNBA team....
