USFL

Any expectations from this new league or will it be about the same as the last go around? Have not researched it just seen it advertised and wondered how you guys felt about it.

From what I've read players can make 45K/year and can get their college education for free through Strayer online or on campus? Take that as you will.

Depends on where they live, they may have to get a second job.

It’s hard to imagine someone willing to damage their body further at that point in life for $45k a season. I would have to imagine that they are still chasing a dream and hope to be picked up by the NFL.

Looking forward to it.

The XFL was really good football before COVID squashed it. I'm really pulling for it to be successful. April - June is such a dead period for sports (minus MLB & PGA) that I think it can get a lot of attention from hardcore football fans.

Yea sounds good will probably try to catch a little. This time of year on Sundays it’s PGA and NASCAR for me but always in to watching some good football as well.

It never worked before. Why would it work now?

Kind of what I have thought. Did not know if something about this deal was supposed to be different. Have not really read anything about the players or monies so just wondering if this one had something going for it that the last attempts did not.

Biggest reason it might work this time is that Fox Sports is a partner and backing it.

No Herschel, Spurrier or Trump . . . . .

The original USFL.

I loved it. Going to Tampa Bay Bandit games was great fun! The only time in my life I've been a Spurrier fan.

(And, just to make this a political post, Donald Trump was trying to use it as a stepping stone to get his team into the NFL. Most folks who studied the business aspect of the league say that he was the major person responsible for the demise of the league.)

USFL Michigan Panthers is the only professional football team with a Panther name that has a ex-Clemson player.
