    The Maine Red Claws based out of Portland and the Springfield Armor in Springfield, MA will operate this upcoming season. The Red Claws will be affiliates of the Bobcats and Celtics and the Springfield team will be the affiliate of the Nets, Knicks, and 76ers.

    The Armor used to be the Anaheim Arsenal, would have been a great name for the Springfield team had they kept it...but apparently "Armor" is just as fitting historically...

    A shame they jumped up in price this year...but it was bound to happen with the increase in demand for tickets.

    Good for the Portland and Springfield fanbases to have teams...even if Springfield is a rival team's affiliate :eek:

    They did for the season tickets but I thought it was a slight increase for the single game tickets(excluding the $10 ones)...either way they increased their way out of the basement in price ahead of the Bruins.
