Mr. Curious says in the aftermath of another failed (sale) (merger) (deal) between the NPPL and the PSP that things may be heating up. Rumor has it that the NPPL has more teams looking to get into their Pro division than they have slots available (currently). Of course all those teams would enter the fray sans pro experience though the amount of past pro talent on the hopeful teams is believed to vary widely. And with the seeming impasse over the August event date--each league has an event on the same weekend--word on the street is that the NPPL is advising its pro teams they must commit to playing all the events. Now just what that really means or if it's intended to be more than a trial balloon is open for debate. The announcement by TB Damage that it would not be competing in the NPPL this season seems to lend credence to the league's (seeming) intent. If this really is a heating up of the league war it will be very interesting to see if a team's sponsors have an impact on the outcome.
