Minnesota Marauders Press Releases

  • Shock Sale of the Marauders +

    What a roller coaster of a year it has been for the Minnesota Marauders. A disastrous free agency period, the rise and fall of form during the season, the return of Elroy Lucier, the emergence of Ervin Holmes and the beginning of possibly a long feud between GM and past player who we will not name. Just when the horrors of a disappointing season was about to be swept away, just when the excitement of a new season was on the horizon, just when the unknown possibilities of a new season was about to be born the 2020 year of the Minnesota Marauders took 1 last twist in typical fashion. The 2020 year for the Marauders was a year of Read More

  • Ticket Sales & Revenue Plummets in Minnesota +

The club predicted at the end of the 2019 year a $36 million dollar profit for the 2020 season was expected but the club fell $8 million dollars short of that mark thanks to 1000 less patrons per game entering the gates of Pfizer Joy Hill. Minnesota raised ticket prices for the 2020 season by $3.34 per ticket and while the team was challenging for the division title things looked positive but on the back of poor form in the second Read More
  • GM Out? +

    The GM currently sits in a private estate mansion in his home town of Perth, Western Australia after returning home to his native country the day after the Marauders regular season where they gave up the 8th seed to miss the finals. According to a source Gibson's final words at the end of the final game was "there's nothing to do but leave now" Gibson seems to be completely disenfranchised with the Minnesota outfit and our source claims Gibson is at the stage in his young career where he'd prefer to either rebiuld a rock bottom franchise or coach the kids in the D-League. Gibson's flight itinerary speaks volumns of his intentions. The 1st stop on his path back to Read More
  • Gibson Sits With Thomas Vanviking +

    THOMAS VANVIKING Chief Sports Editor Minnesota boss Steve Gibson has been somewhat low key in recent months. A rugged season from the start, software malfunctions and personal struggles has forced him into laying low in the media. Some media identities are saying Gibson has lost the passion for the Minnesota franchise but as I talk to Steve I see the same determined man flying the banner for the Horde. Thanks for sitting with me Steve. Sum up the year so far for Minnesota. Well yeah it's been um incredibly challenging. We actually sit in a better position now then this time last year, I think we were still chasing 500 this time last year and we've sat above that all Read More
  • Welcome to Minnesota. BOOM +

    "Let's get this thing rolling" were Layne Hensley's final words to his squad before the game against Las Vegas in his strong southern accent. It's a common statement that the difference between good players and great players is that great players make others around them play even better then they otherwise would. Great players elevate those around them to whole new level. "Blake Cobb is great player" Says Hensley at the game. "His addition to our squad basicly means we're gonna out-rebound you. If you're coming to Minnesota then you better come to crash the boards or we'll walk all over you. Offensively the trio of Michael, Blake and Andrew is gonna score on you. There is now so much Read More
  • Treachery, Treason and Trophies! +

    It's been a tough and unforgiving off-season for the Marauders. Loyalty is a belief system told in fairytales to children, and the desire to actually win the Heikkinen Cup is more a metaphor for getting paid big bucks, not actually winning the cup itself. The proof of this is in the pudding. Fathers in Minnesota told their sons without a trace of doubt in their minds that their boys heroes will return to their beloved team to do nothing more than perform better than they did the year before. "We wont just play playoffs kids, we'll play finals". Lets make 1 thing clear. Loyalty and the desire to win are dead! Money rules the world and money rules the OBWL. Read More
  • Minnesota Release Financials +

    The Minnesota finance office have released the numbers for 2019 and stake holders are grinning from ear to ear as Minnesota records record profits. Gibson pointed out the continued growth in crowd numbers as interest in the Marauders thrives and their push into the second round of the playoffs as major factors contributing to the bloated $55 million profit. CROWD NUMBERS AND TICKET REVENUE Regular season. Despite the rise in ticket revenue for 2019 the regular season actually saw a dip in ticket sales revenue despite attendance being higher. A $900,000 loss on the previous year was recorded due to the drop in sale price of club seats and luxury suites in an attempt to lure more spectators to games. Read More
  • Marauders Defeated in the Desert +

    The season of Minnesota may have ended in a tight struggle at the hands of the Arizona T-Birds but GM Gibson stands by his troops with head held high singing high praise of his valiant players. For the first time in Marauder history they break out of the first round of the playoffs by defeating the highly fancied Toronto Huskies to break a long standing hoodoo hanging over the organisation and then went toe to toe with the division champions narrowly being beating down the stretch by the T-Birds in the second round. It was a season of 2 halves for the Marauders. The first half they played soft, sloppy ball. The second they emerged as a giant striking fear Read More
  • The Horde march on Quebec +

    Funs over, all-star game has come and gone, blades are out, streets are empty and quite, it's dark and cold, Quebec Canada. A bus can be heard growling down the empty streets of Quebec, lock your doors and keep your children indoors is the advice given by Minnesota officials, we bring the horde! The bus continues to growl up the cold streets, a wild chant can be heard from inside as the horde roles up. "It's show time" Ronald Long shouts from the top stair of the bus. "We here Gerry, we here for ya. Comin to get ya boy" "2 games in Quebec and no meet and greet Gerry? And i thought we we're friends" smiled Andrew Bordo "I Read More
