Not getting it from a specific source, just speculation and from following minor league hockey for 40 years. Distance has killed plenty of teams and leagues for years. Adding Salt Lake City was the beginning of the end for the IHL and distance proved to be the death blow for the old Central Hockey League. 

Five years ago, the A had teams in Austin, San Antonio, Houston and Oklahoma City. Now only one of those teams remain. Austin works out beautifully for Dallas but I can see the rest of the league pushing for a relocation out west at some point. 

Hard to believe twenty years ago, Texas had pro hockey in San Angelo, Abilene, Amarillo, Waco, Houston, Killeen, Austin, Fort Worth, El Paso, etc. etc.....and they're all gone. Amazing how quickly minor league hockey lost its luster. 

Man the WPHL was great.

 

Abilene Aviators (Abilene, Texas) 1998–2000; folded during the 1999–2000 season

This is my fault guys. First game I've watched since the restart. We were up 3-1 when it turned it on and it's gone downhill since I flipped it on. Turning it off now hoping to negate my negative energy and help pull out the W

Good thing this impressive choke doesn’t really mean much. 

These round robin games are completely meaningless without home-ice riding on seeding, IMO.

Gee.  Look at that.  Another shitty performance from a Dallas team.  Can't just one of my teams give me hope?

At least FC Dallas got sent home before they could fuck it up

Clearly team was missing my presence.  I just got kids down and turned it on about a minute before first goal.

Guessing Skipper stepped away in the 3rd period

I actually did for a bit then caught their last 3 goals.  Brutal.
