Preview Clip

The owner of the Halifax Rainmen says the team will be back to play next season, despite fines and suspensions following the forfeit of the National Basketball League of Canada championship last week. The team forfeited last Thursday's championship game to the Windsor Express, citing safety concerns following an altercation between the teams earlier in the day. At a news conference today in Halifax, owner Andre Levingston said he did not support the decision of the Rainmen players and coaches to not show up for the game. (The league handed out 90-thousand dollars in fines, suspended 11 Rainmen players and permanently barred the coach and assistant coach from the league.)
