Re: USFL to return in 2013

UFL, USFL, I can't keep track of them anymore, who's coming and who's going.

Mabye they both should combine and make decent rules. Play during the offseason of the NFL in order to keep football fans interested. Besides the UFL can't decide if they want to close shop or not half the time and I looked yesterday and they look to be down to like 4 teams now. We could have the Washington Federals and Virginia Destroyers to root for.

Similar numbers in Texas.

More than 40,000 showed up to see the Penn State Blue/White game.

There are diehard football fans out there in areas where there are no NFL teams.

Minor league baseball survives quite well in micropolitan areas because salary costs for minor league players are low enough to make the fixed costs of labor something they can cover. The key here will be "cost containment" which in football translates quickly into "keeping salaries down" and "keeping travel requirements in check".

Odds are against great success here - - but this is a different business model from the old USFL.

Oh by the way:

I agree. If they play games on Saturday in college towns during the offseason it will be a hit. If they could get NFLN to cover a game of the week people will watch. I especially like the idea of teams using regionally local players.
Playing a kids game for a kings ransom.
