Lacrosse in Winnipeg

Hello Jets fans,

I write for InLaxWeTrust, the SBNation lacrosse blog. The National Lacrosse League isn't exactly ready for expansion with Boston and Orlando folding in the past two seasons, but nontheless there are still rumors of where they will go next. Vancouver is a given, but one thing I keep hearing about is Winnipeg.

This rumor started because the former team Arizona Sting were owned by the Phoenix Coyotes, and when we thought they would move to Winnipeg we thought the Sting would be revived there. However, it was Atlanta going to Winnipeg.

Currently, three NHL teams own NLL teams- Colorado, Buffalo and Calgary. The Flames are in their first year owning the Roughnecks, and many say that if the Roughnecks hit around 15,000 per game Edmonton or Toronto could buy their NLL teams next.

Then with expansion talk, Winnipeg has been brought up again, as a possible expansion team. Lacrosse is the national sport of Canada, mostly Ontario and British Columbia drawing well in their summer leagues, and now Alberta has popped up as a hotbed.

Manitoba has no summer leagues except for the regional championships, so I wonder how Winnipeg would work out. So I want to ask you two questions.

1, Are there any lacrosse fans in Winnipeg?

2. If the Jets were to own an NLL team, would that make you interested and do you think it would draw?

Thank you for your time with these questions!
