Paul Rabil didn’t want to take all the fans from the MLL (Major League Lacrosse) so he wanted to make a new league that would be before the MLL season and after the college lacrosse season. Rabil states “Our goal was to help re-create the professional game, but to do so with professional entities in existence. It’s never been to start a new league and be this disruptor and further fragment this game,” The PLL will be televised compared to the MLL. It will have several televised games on NBC sports. NBC sports is one of the biggest sporting channels. Lacrosse now has its shot to get better known and be more loved by many more people.
