Death of the Elite League?

Well the proverbial really has hit the fan hasn't it!

If you have been living under a rock for the past 24hours you have missed some action! There has been many a rumour floating around the message boards regarding the structure of next seasons Elite League. There are three clubs, Manchester/Newcastle and Edinburgh, who 'appear' to have been ejected from the Elite League for next year.

Naturally there are many arguments on either side as to who is right and who is wrong. The frustrating thing as a Phoenix fan is the lack of clarity on the issue! This whole saga has left a sour taste in the mouth in the run up to the, usually, fantastic finals weekend in Nottingham.

I wont go on much more on this as, frankly, I don't know much! But have a read of the following blogs/newspaper articles and they will fill you in!

Breakaway British Hockey Blog

F Block Blog
The Cats Whiskers
The Pyre
The Phoenix Website
Elite League Website
Bolton Evening News
Nottingham Evening Post
Edinburgh News

So as you can see its already covered in most quarters, hopefully, from a Phoenix perspective, all will become clear tomorrow morning at 7am!

So if your up at that time, pay the Phoenix site a visit!

I do plan on doing my own playoff hockey essential tracks, as per recent posts by the Breakaway and FMJ blogs. That
may well appear tonight or tomorrow!
