What Roller Hockey needs in North America is EXPOSURE!
Look at what is hot at the present time on TV/Cable/Web/Satellite, it is things like WWE, UFC, etc...
People want action and lets be honest, some violence. PIHA and the AiHL won't bring that to the public.
The only league that might have a small chance of making it back on TV/Cable on a regular basis is MLRH (or a similar product)
If they could put together 8 teams, from all the players that are available in North America (or the World if needed), they could pay them ($$$ yes money), have a 2 hours slot on TV (games are 48min.).
When I played for The Bullets I started discussions with Comcast in Philly and they were really receptive.
I think it can be done, we just need the right product at the right time.
The product is MLRH (or a league that allows fighting and body checking), the time... Unfortunately, the best time was 2 years ago while the NHL lockout.
I hope you guys get what you deserve because Roller Hockey is a wonderful sport.
P.S. We have a semi-pro hockey league here called the Ligue Nord Americaine de Hockey (http://www.lnah.ca/) teams play in front of 2K-3K fans every games, the league understood that for the fans to drive to the rink and pay their tickets they needed to offer a show, a spectacle. Teams/owners/players understood and they got what they wanted, full house every games against an arch rival, sometimes games last over 3 hours but with a good show, no fans complains.
Have a great summer guys!
