Post by herns »

“The opening game of the new USFL’s 2022 inaugural season kicks off in Birmingham at Protective—with the Stallions on the field.”

Looks like the stallions are in the opening game

Yup, saw it on ticket master. I like it, having the opening game be the home team against the most well known brand. I could see it bringing in a big crowd and a big tv audience

UAB got 37,000 for their Protective debut against Liberty. Grain of salt applies because UAB inflated the numbers their last years at Legion Field--although they definitely weren't alone in that dept.

Nonetheless, first chance. Better be up to it.

I think it’ll be fine. Sounds like they’ve got a lot of it figured out behind the scenes. I hate how quietly they like to operate though. But the fact after Bruno said no chance at playing and says he was presented with how the league would operate and the pay that it sold him along with 2 agencies saying the behind the scenes of this is one of the best they’d seen gives some good confidence at least for me. That said their PR and media stuff needs to be figured out because it isn’t great right now

While they had a snafu (4 than 2 coaches announced last week) the USFL has by far done more TV teaser commercials and related promotion than the other leagues by far. TO me that's more important.

I do think they meant to milk the last 4 coaches over two announcements
