Coverage of the Lone Star Brahmas will be moving to SportDFW.com from its current home on BlackoutDallas.com.
BlackoutDallas.com is a Dallas Stars dedicated site that has graciously allowed me to provide coverage of the Lone Star Brahmas (Texas Tornado) Franchise for the past three seasons. Unfortunately there has been a lot of turn over in the editorial staff of the site during that time with the one consistent element being the coverage of the NAHL. Once again the site is without an editor or staff writers other than me, so the decision has been made within the Fansided.com management to transition coverage of the Lone Star Brahmas and the NAHL to SportDFW.com.
SportDFW.com has a strong following in the area with in-depth coverage of the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Ranger, Dallas Mavericks and regional college sports. The one sport absent from the site has been hockey due to the presence of BlackoutDallas.com. That is all about to change. We hope that with the introduction of the Lone Star Brahmas coverage, SportDFW.com will begin to generate more local interest in the sport of hockey and will eventually lead to Dallas Stars coverage on the site as well.
The SportDFW.com site drew over 40 thousand page views last week, so the Brahmas and Junior Hockey will be exposed to an entirely new audience. Hopefully that exposure will drive new fans to the NYTEX Sports Centre and generate increased support of local hockey programs on all levels.
I want to thank everyone who has been a loyal reader on BlackoutDallas.com and hope that you will continue to get your Lone Star Brahmas coverage at the new home on SportDFW.com.
