I hear you comment on brand dilution but think this is a good pick up for PL. I can’t think of any viable candidate to join that would not have similar dilution. Gets PL to even # of full members, strengthens LAX immensely and BB some. League can’t sit still.
Does not address Football, where another member is very desirable in my opinion. Don’t see any football schools beating down the door to join all sports. Sure wish Nova would consider us for football.
