Jeff Lund was there 21 years ago when Ray and Monte Miron revived the Central Hockey League and brought the Tulsa Ice Oilers back to life.

Lund says it is the perfect time for a similar revival.

    "It is ironic that a movement to revive the Roughnecks and the NASL comes at the same time that a celebration is being planned this month to commemorate the Roughnecks' NASL championship 30 years ago."

    No, that's coincidence. Not irony.

    And if you expect success from 30 years ago, when today's fans weren't even born, to sell tickets for you, that's a pretty flimsy business plan.

    Well if Lund has anything to do with it, it will be a failure. Look at the Oilers once he bought them: They made the playoffs maybe four times in fifteen years. He owns the Oilers Ice Center which is a dump. He is cheap and we dont need him being in ownership in Tulsa.

    Tulsa soccer-crazed? It is, but you wouldn't know it from the pitiful coverage of it in the World.

    It needs to happen sooner rather than later. This community can support soccer at the highest level.
