- Agreed. Each individual team capsules appear (or should appear) on the individual team pages. Redirecting MLL Team Capsules to this page makes sense to me. -Mitico (talk) 14:28, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Chicago Machine and Ohio Machine
I don't care one way or the other,but would like to know how the MLL treats the Chicago Machine and the Ohio Machine. Does the MLL consider them one franchise two cities or two different franchise. any info or sources from the team or league would be great. Smith03 (talk) 20:03, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Semi-pro or Pro?
There has been an edit war going on for a few months now on the correct description for MLL. The reliable sources in favor of the "semi-pro" label include the 2013 Wall Street Journal story cited in the article, which describes the players as part time players with other jobs. Merriam-Webster defines semi-pro as "paid to participate in a sport or activity but not doing it as a full-time job." That seems pretty clear cut that MLL is semi-pro. I am not aware of any independent secondary reliable sources provided by the editors who keep deleting the "semi-pro" description and the sourced salary info.

- Agreed, as one might guess since I've reverted similar edits before. On the other hand, I'm not so sure that the salary info needs to be in the first sentence, so long as it appears with the reliable source given somewhere in the article, to back up the semi-pro classification. Putting it right up frog seems a bit undue weight and argumentative. oknazevad (talk) 04:46, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
