Re: Mark Cuban considers starting a rival NFL

Does he seriously think this is gonna work, along with an AFL that is being fostered strongly by ESPN?

Re: Mark Cuban considers starting a rival NFL

I was thinking that there might be a good chance that DC might get a team. We dont have a arena team, and I would think that the 8 new teams would target places that have huge football followings.
I think it sounds sweet if it ever works out. Plus with only 8 teams that target 2nd round picks and up there would be decent players making up teams, and players that get suspended like R. Williams might rather play for a American leauge instead of Canadian leauge durning their suspensions.

Re: Mark Cuban considers starting a rival NFL

I can't see how it would work. There are already about 30 AFL and afl2 teams across the country using the players that Cuban thinks will make up the UFL, so I don't see how they could consistently find enough decent players to keep the league going and, more importantly, growing.

I do agree that there is a demand for football year round and that the NFL may be suffering a bit from a complete lack of competition but I don't think starting a league from scratch is the way to change that.

It already has been tried once, and look what happened. Only way to get the league running, is to have high profile stars, not post-second rounders.

I figured it was the natural progression after the demise of the XFL. When this fails another billionaire will come in and start the ZFL, and so on (using the Greek alphabet).


Actually, I was just kidding.

Right, otherwise you just have a bunch of NFL cast-offs trying to get a second chance at getting into the league. You need a Joe Namath-type who basically says "screw the NFL, I'm going with these new guys;" but I don't see that happening.

Nobody can compete directly with the NFL.

Nobody.
