Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

This could be a huge game changer in the XFL-CFL talks. Let's see the USFL match this. https://www.google.com/amp/s/sports.yahoo.com/amphtml/nfl-executive-kevin-laforce-leaving-095558067.html Already posted in in XFL discussion in separate thread.

Re: New USFL - what will it look like?

I also wouldn’t be surprised if they pass up putting a team in California for 2022. Agreed, especially because we saw how burdensome the regulatory environment proved for the AAF and XFL. Although maybe worker compensation laws don't apply to unpaid labor. They don't tank. They aren't labor - more ...

Re: New USFL - what will it look like?

Let's also reimagine the 1986 season that never happened. FOX supposedly would have been involved despite their at-the-time new nation status, and did reportedly make an offer in the next round of NFL TV negos (1990) before closing the deal in the next one. This was to be the USFL in the fourth sea...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

More importantly the XFL's need to the CFL has diminished as pandemic fades and then the CFL may see the USFL as another option to partner with. I'm passing on these points as others who have podcast and TV /radio shows have opined. eg https://twitter.com/RodPedersenShow/status/1400898060457189376 ...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

Oh well....is there anyone here who remembers the original league anyway? It's a cool branding so why not? It's been forty years. But the notion of two competing spring leagues competing for the limited available watchable talent seems zany. It feels as though it's really gonna launch this time tho...

Re: New USFL - what will it look like?

I'll take a stab here with some First off obviously (thankfully) trying to sign Deuce Vaughn (Herschel Walker, underclassman ineligible) or drafting J.T. Daniels/Sam Howell/Spencer Rattler (Kelly/Young/Marino) is off the table. Everyone's going to roll their eyes at the "reject" strategy ...

New USFL - what will it look like?

New USFL - what will it look like? Budget will be a huge driver for the league. IMO they will target operating cost 1/3 or less of the XFL / AAF. That’s just my gut. They will likely pick cities many of the XFL is in because that’s where the USFL was mostly for same reasons: TV Nielsen ratings/viewe...
