Last year, the MLRH Cup went to Europe and we are determined to bring it back to the states.  With our new $500 fee, any team can afford to play MLRH and they may help us win back the Cup from Europe.

My friend Kim Zubick has produced an amazing film. OK, this is not an action movie BUT The Zookeeper’s Wife is a truly beautiful and inspiring movie based on a true story of a Polish couple who ran a zoo in Warsaw during the German occupation in World War II. Go see it!  Take your significant other and let her see your warm, fuzzy and sensitive side.

USA  Women's battle for On-Ice Equality Echoes a Fight From 30 Years Ago. Their battle reopened an old wound for a 44-year-old Canadian woman. Justine Blainey-Broker, now a chiropractor who runs a clinic north of Toronto, could not believe such fights were still going on 30 years after her landmark gender discrimination case. In 1986, Blainey-Broker’s case reached the Ontario Court of Appeals, which ruled in her favor. 
​30 YEARS AGO...
Lightnin' Hopkins  OK, Bill Raue is older than dirt but one of the avantages is that I was around to hear this guy.
His compulsive guitar playing and harsh, emotive voice made him one of the last great country blues singers. 

Wanda Jackson  This woman was Elvis before Elvis plus she was the first woman to front her own group.  She opened the doors for all the women performers that were to follow.—and yes, she was a hell raiser!
Blues Legend Memphis Minnie  I know you know nothing about Memphis Minnie.  She was a hell of a guitar player. Once blew BB King off the stage in a Southside Chicago "Cutting Contest."  This is raw stuff. 
Fred Neal—Sheer genius!  in the 60's, Bill was in the club business and that is where I first encountered Fred Neal.  Great voice, wrote great songs and the guy changed music forever.  First guy to amp up a 12-string and inspired the Byrds.  Crosby, Stills and Nash wanted to call their group, "Sons of Freddy" but he nixed that.  Bill once spent 48 hours at a hurricane party in Coconut Grove, FL with Fred and some of the best damn musicians you never heard of.

Having found success with both players and fans, Major League Roller Hockey's Super League returns for another season of excitement and the biggest paydays in the sport. 
​With the most successful format in roller hockey, Major League Roller Hockey's Super League will return all across America in a wild dash for the cash.  The LA Pama Cyclones are the defending champions, having swept the Chicago Windy City Hustlers in the 2016 championship series.

"This is working and with money on the line for every game, all season long, every game counts. It's the most competitive league with Super League rosters featuring the best players in North America," said MLRH Founder and President Bill Raue.

As more and more rinks melt the ice in Europe, their World League Inline season is set to begin. 
While many teams in the North America World Leagiue have played nine games, things in Europe are just getting started. Unlike North America, there are very few dedicated inline hockey facilities in Europe so the inline season only begins when the rinks melt the ice.  But the teams are very good.  Two years ago in Mannheim, Germany, the eliminated American team could only sit and watch as two teams from Finland, the Koovee Rollers and Viuorelan Veikot played for the Championship.

In North America, the title hunt seems to be down to five teams. In the West, the LA Pama Cyclones and the Orange County Cowboys are locked into a tight division trace. East of the Rockies, the strength is in the Midwest with the Detroit Revoluton in the lead with the Canfield Kings and the ever dangerous Pennsylvania Inferno still in the hunt.
