I have no doubt SA would make a great attendance team, based on AAF Commanders. And I even like the name! But TV rules.

On setting apart. D Johnston may be correct but and that may be the PR reason. And quite frankly I agree with it. Chance of season 2 is wayyyy higher for USFL due to slow grow start in bubble. But its also because they did't have the bandwidth (time) to successfully launch in 8 markets. So it was really the only way to go... AND it mostly likely is by far the best chance for a yr 2. SO DJ is right.

Also - think how much easier it will be to sell tickets in markets with the games playing vs a new league with low profile pre initial kickoff?
I 100% agree, I think this is the smartest approach to spring ball we’ve seen. Keep costs down and ensure viability while trying to bring in additional funding
Its Brian Woods - he laid out the plan on "the_markcast" interview in late April / early May.
