TitleGame On: Greater Kansas City Sports Businesses Spend Their Time Juggling Competition, Revenue and Costs
AbstractPhotos and article about the history of professional sports teams and their business aspects in Greater Kansas City from the 1960s to the present-day's "fledgling Kansas City Knights of the American Basketball Association." Profiles of Tom Cheatham (general manager of the Knights), Chris Browne (of the Kansas City Attack soccer team), Mark Gorris (of the Kansas City Royals baseball team), Curt Johnson (of the Kansas City Wizards soccer team), and Carl Peterson (of the Kansas City Royals baseball team).
NotesPage 34: "The American Basketball League Steers folded after only one season in 1962. The NHL Kansas City Scouts left to become the New Jersey Devils in 1976 after two seasons. The NBA Kings, after 12 seasons, dribbled away to Sacramento, Calif., in 1985. The Continental Basketball League suffered a quick death after bringing the Sizzlers to Kansas City for the 1985-1986 season. Then, Major Indoor Soccer tanked after a decade in Kansas City, taking the Kansas City Comets with it."
