The Rochester Lancers of the Major Indoor Soccer League announced they have offered a contract to former NBA star Allen Iverson. The Lancers have offered Iverson $20,000 per game, with a bonus of $5,000 per goal scored, win bonuses and merchandise bonuses. More than 12 goals are scored, on average, per game. One caveat: The Lancers have only two games left this season. "Allen Iverson is one of the premier athletes of our time," said Rich Randall, Lancers vice president.
