1994 Empire State Cobras TeeRegular price $32.00
The Empire State Cobras were a One-Year Wonder franchise in Roller Hockey International during the summer of 1996. Based out of tiny Glens Falls, New York, the team seemed incompatible with the rest of Roller Hockey International, a 17-team cross-continental league that most played in huge NHL and NBA arenas. Sure enough finances turned out to be a problem, as the Cobras drew fewer than 1,000 per game at home and owner Jerry Shorthouse ran out of money before the end of the season. Most of the Cobras’ roster came over from the defunct Buffalo Stampede franchise (1994-1995), which won RHI’s Murphy Cup in 1994. Although the club was good and won the Atlantic Division with a 16-7-5 record, the Cobras reportedly had to sell their home court advantage in the playoffs to the lower-seeded Orlando Jackals. They lost to the eventual champion Jackals in the first round.
