    Just start one. Madison is tiny compared to Detroit. Smallest city to have a gay hockey team never mind a league. Also smallest city in the world to have a gay Rugby team too.

    If a small city of 200,000 can field 6 gay hockey teams , shouldn't be too hard to get a group of guys in Detroit together. Place an ad in the local gay publication and see if you get any interest. The interesting thing we are finding in both Hockey and Rugby is the amount of str8's who want to join. So far we have kept the numbers at over 90% lesbian and gay in Hockey.

    The Madison league started when a transplant from New York's league Patrick Farabaugh decided he missed playing Hockey for a gay team. Instead of sitting around he decided to start a gay hockey league.
