United Football League......

Seems that there is a new football league starting up in the states.

Vick might get 'em some much needed attention, but they're going to compete with NCAA football and NFL, and have their final on US thanksgiving weekend?! Who's gonna watch this?

With that short schedule, it would seem to make more sense to start around the same time CFL does, and finish up before the end of August.

League won’t fly it will dead after 1 season if that .

going up against the NFL is like going up against the WWE.

these two companies are so strong that you have to have the backing of billionaires and have to ride out the storm for 5 years at least.

americans have everything set. high school football on fridays, ncaa on saturdays and NFL on sundays. All 3 of these are big in their respective communities.

they don't want to see a rival league, with castoff talent at weird times or going up against the nfl. people don't want to see mid week or spring football. they like it the way it is.

the talent just won't be there. i am not sure that the talent would even be comparible to the cfl.

...........and Vic's team mascot is a Pit Bull, should be entertaining half time shows!

Not going to happen, 4 teams yea right!
This league is dead before it starts and will join the mega other failed leagues in the cemetaries of pro sport.

but wait, there's more!

will they ever learn?

Goes to show this league is going to the dogs! :lol: :lol: :lol:

C'mon... throw them a bone!
I hear that they're going to make great use of the Flea-Flicker.

4 point safeties?

3 point PATs from 10 yards out?

No touchbacks, balls out of endzone placed on 15?

No kneel downs?

No preseasons?

Fans can buy stock?

These are just some of the things that jump out at me. They will fold just like the XFL. You have the NFL in all its glory and you try to change the rules. The American people have high school, College and the NFL with basically the same rules and you want to change them?

A spring league is a dumb idea. It's not football season in the USA. This won't fly. What fan is dumb enough to invest in a team.

This has disaster written all over it.

Everybody should go here: http://www.newusfl.com/USFLCoaches/coaches.php because we all could coach!

I be this league won't even start up.

We’re talking about two different leagues now right? The UFL seems to be the legitimate one, the USFL web page looks like some piece of made up fan fiction.

Here’s another story on the UFL:
