Concerned in Shreveport

Normally the news that a minor league basketball team wants to call Shreveport-Bossier City home would be a good thing.

So why am I more concerned than ecstatic?

Simple, that would give the cities four minor league sports teams -- the Battle Wings (football), Stallions (basketball), Sports (baseball) and Mudbugs (hockey).

There are teams struggling to get by right now with a three-team market. A fourth would split the pie even more.

Yes, Stallions CEO Rod Evans sounds like a guy who has done his research on the market - two-and-a-half years, he says - and is undeterred.

Hopefully he knows what he is talking about when it comes to sports in Shreveport-Bossier City.
