    UFL?

    Saw this in Peter King's column today...

    4. I think this is what I know about the plans for the new United Football League, scheduled to begin play in September on Thursday and Friday nights in, most likely, six markets:

    Two of the possible six franchises still need owners, and in these tough times, that has to be worrisome.

    If Jim Fassel doesn't have an NFL job by February, the UFL wants to hire him to coach the New York franchise. At $1.5 million or $2 million for the season, Fassel could do worse.

    The week after the NFL season ends in February, the league will hold an online poll of fans, asking if they think the league should pursue Michael Vick to play for one of its teams in 2009. If the vote is yes, the UFL will try to sign Vick to play -- presumably while he is under suspension for a year by the NFL after leaving prison on his dogfighting conviction.

    Field goals of 50 yards and longer will count for four points.

    There will be XFL-like locker-room and on-field cameras.

    There will be a female referee.

    Just like the XFL I will give it a shot and watch it once or twice. If the product sucks again I look for the same results as Vince saw with his league.

    Re: UFL?

    Whatever happened to the proposed summer league that was going to play on college campuses. I loved that concept and thought it would be a great appetizer for the college and NFL season. I am not an AFL fan as I prefer the 'real' game played on a 100 yd field.

    Awesome. Can never have too much football.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    He's got one at Sports Authority in DSM - but this could be a chance for him to play some football.

    Re: UFL?

    I've heard about the UFL... On a related note, I heard the AFL (af1 not 2) is going bankrupt and folding, so I guess there can be too much football...


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...

    You're probably thinking about the All American Football League.
    If you check out the press releases on their website, they held their first draft in January 08 and in March 08 they announced they were postponing their debut till 09. That was their last press release.

    I'd like to see him play some football again. Would like it to be in the NFL but I think he would take it regardless
