Well...just to let you people know...They are "supposedly" going to announce the teams for the UFL which starts in August this week. Rumor has it, new teams in LA, Vegas, San Antonio, Orlando, Sacramento, BIrmingham, Memphis and NYC.

WLAF if i'm not mistaken is the World League, before it turned into NFL Europa and dropped the American cities.

Las Vegas is the worst place to have an NFL football team, the gambling would be outrageous, and those Vegas folks know it.
LA already lost 2 NFL teams. My opinion is that LA is a horrible sports town.

Hopefully it works out....the NFL could use some competition. I remember watching USFL games when I was a kid. I was a big fan of the Philadelphia (and then Baltimore) Stars.

I actually agree with that. The NFL could use competition.... only to prove that it's the dominant leauge of not only pro football but all pro sports leauges in America. It's happened before... other leauges trying to show take down the NFL, and the NFL kills those leauges. It will happen again.
I'm sure the NFL loves this. And I'm not being sarcastic here . I think it works the the Leauge's advantage. Like someone recorded you killing a lion charging at you. You know what I mean?
