Despite financial problems and the threat of a lawsuit from their former league, the Bullfrogs intend to remain in Major League Roller Hockey and play their seventh season at the Arrowhead Pond, team President and CEO Stuart Silver said. "We are planning on playing next year at the Pond, absolutely," Silver said. Roller Hockey International, where the Bullfrogs played for five years, went broke at the end of 1997 and the Bullfrogs and the Buffalo Wings jumped to MLRH.

The Silver family, which owns the Bullfrogs, has a difficult decision to make in the next few months. Does it return to Roller Hockey International in 1999 and, if accepted, play by its rules? That would mean surrendering ownership of America's most successful professional in-line hockey team. Or does it stick it out in two-year-old Major League Roller Hockey, a loose-knit, predominantly East Coast league that has provided inferior competition this season?

Stuart's Rollerworld, the roller-hockey rink beloved by sports fans and despised by neighboring homeowners, may move to Anaheim or remain in the city under stricter conditions.

Another family feud has led to recent hirings, firings, and rehirings that have pitted Bullfrog owners against each other. The Silvers have been at odds over the team budget, which is in the neighborhood of $700,000 a year. A recent downturn in attendance has cut into revenue, so the owners have argued over how best to cut costs. At the same time, they have increased print advertising to try to attract more fans. Some of their decisions have backfired.

A proposal to place a minor league hockey team in the Anaheim Convention Center as early as the 1998-99 season looks promising, according to a Canadian sports agent brokering the sale of the Tucson Gila Monsters of the West Coast Hockey League to Stuart Silver, president and CEO of the Bullfrogs. "Mr. Silver is committed to bringing a professional minor league ice hockey team to Anaheim, and to that extent I am trying to work out a deal," Al Howell said Wednesday.

After every Roller Hockey International game, hundreds of kids are allowed to lug hockey sticks, roller pucks and caps into the locker room in search of their favorite players' autographs. No one can say RHI, Ltd., doesn't know its fan base. Those little-known signatures may not be worth a lot at a sports memorabilia show, but they mean something to the youngsters who seek them. And their value is even more apparent to RHI, which stages its third annual all-star game at the Pond at 7 tonight.

The Planning Commission this week revoked the operating permit of a roller skating rink and arcade, citing building-code violations and problems with police. Stuart Silver, owner of Stuart's Rollerworld, has 10 days to appeal the decision. But Silver has put the building at 464 W. Commonwealth Ave. up for sale, and city officials said he told them he might move the operation to Anaheim.
