Is anyone going to watch this when it starts rolling around?

There are a lot of former popular players from college who struggle to find a spot on the 53 man roster. I'd like to see them go to the UFL and see how they do..

Do you guys think any current Chiefs player could have a shot in this league? Call me crazy, but I was thinking Croyle if he could stay healthy..

It should go over just as well as the USFL and XFL, CFL expansion into the US, and the original US World League teams.

Exactly. Minor league football has a history of failure.

This just came to mind: But I don't see Todd Reesing or Chase Daniels being worthy of making a spot on a 53 man NFL roster. I'd love to see those two in the UFL.

I'll admit, I enjoy watching the CFL/AFL mainly because thats where some college players go if they cannot survive in the NFL.

I don't think Reesing wants to play pro football. He is going to become a thermonuclear physicist. Daniels wants to be a sanitation engineer.

I see where your coming from, but look how long the CFL and AFL have been around (I know. The AFL is currently un-active, but they plan to get back in 2010.)

Uhh, Croyle will be fine in the NFL there my friend. I know I'M the "singular" fan in the nation on this subject, and I'm proud to be.

Brodie Croyle and Tyler Thigpen are going to put on a hell of a show come camp. I trust I will see you there.

To answer your question, I am undecided as to if I will watch the UFL or not.
I guess on one side you have another league, which just means more football, which I'm all about. I watch all forms of MMA, so I guess I can buy into it. They are going to need more than 4 teams too. I heard 4 teams, six game schedule. Seems a little odd. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Ex Chief players huh? I'd Say Sippio would be at the top of my list to start. Maybe a Casey Printers, or Will Svitek, ( he was ok over in Europe, and I was a HUGE fan of the NFL Europe. Watched it every week )

Dont worry about Croyle. He has alot to prove. He's up to the task.

You're a fucking idiot. Do you know Croyles completion % on balls thrown past 10 yards? Ingle Martin will beat him for the # 3. Thigpen is a good back up QB though.

I'm going to get tickets. I've seen every football team that's tried to make it here in Vegas and failed, the Posse (CFL), Outlaws (XFL), Gladiators (Arena). Hopefully this one sticks around. I think it could end up becoming a farm system for the NFL.

Dropped passes have alot to do with that I'm sure, that and playcalling.

Not worried at about it. Croyle will be fine.

What are these "drops" you speak of? Croyle flat out sucks and your the only one who supports him (that's nothing to be proud of.) Todd Haley has not mentioned Croyle. That shows where his status is under the new coach.

I've only ever been exposed to the XFL so I'm uncertain, but...
Have the other leagues had such decorated players/coaches?

Seems to me that this wouldn't be God awful product like the XFL and perhaps even on par with the Arena League.

Am I offbase?

The WFL and the USFL had many decorated coaches and players. The USFL could have been successful if they hadn't added multiple teams every year. Too many investors that had no business running a pro team. A few of the names you may recognize; Anthony Carter, Vince Evans, Doug Flutie, Bobby Hebert, Jim Kelly, Sean Landeta, Sam Mills, Herschel Walker, Reggie White, Steve Young.

......what? ...... Good God please tell me your kidding...

Sometimes it takes time for some to get used to a guy like me Farzin. I am the voice of the 12th man. I happily put myself up on a cross for the benefit of some day seeing our Sea of Red return in its glory. Most think that I am delusional, and just trying to start trouble. But I really do love this football team. Having said that, I am in fact, the Singular fan of Brodie Croyle, and I do believe he has NFL ability. I also think that he does have injury issues, just like many players. But his arm being used in the same sentence as Tyler Thigpen is just not fair. We all know who had the best arm. I'm not saying Tyler isnt talented. I'm just saying when it comes to operating under center, and actually making a throw, Brodie has the tools over him. This is the "show" that I hope to see in camp. Brodie has ALOT to prove. I'm fine with that. It certainly doest mean that I am going to stop liking a guy I have met, and was huge fan of when he was at the Crimson Tide.

Brodie has everything but the mass. As I have always said, he needs to add weight. I look forward to see what he brings, becuase he has alot to prove.

What are these "drops" you speak of? Croyle flat out sucks and your the only one who supports him (that's nothing to be proud of.) Todd Haley has not mentioned Croyle. That shows where his status is under the new coach.

I am proud to be his only supporter my friend. I try to like all of our players, and Brodie IMHO has not gotten a true chance, behind a competent line, and competent QB's coach, and play calling, etc, to even start to look good. I would suggest you read my blog this week. It's here.

I have never had "a true chance, behind a competent line, a competent QB's coach, and play calling, etc, to even start to look good." However I do know that Brodie and I will never be legit NFL QB's.

If you really do write a blog I would suggest that you learn punctuation. Commas seem to be giving you a lot of problems. The correct use of grammar will make your posts more legit. Right now they look as if they were posted by a fifth grader.

Sometimes I rant, therefore commas get missed, and mistakes are made. We do have an Editor, and he's been on my case about it plenty. I'm trying. Brodie was looking real good in the New England game too, after the third time, he didn't get up. Look at the tape. I'm not saying Croyle is our starter. I'm saying it's going to pretty interesting to see how he handles all of this in camp. I look forward to it.

I do not know how to use a spell check here yet. Sorry for the bad grammar.

If they would not have had all the damn wrestling announcers and stigma of wrestling it would have succeeded..

Hell, I think if they gave it another shot it would succeed with the money they have.. Just don't make the same stupid mistakes.. Also make it only played on real football fields in the weather also.. None of this field turf or dome shit..

Get rid of the players naming themselves..
Start out in 8-12 cities, make the teams about the cities, not some name gimmick..
Give the teams a year to find players and coaches..
Have it either end right as preseason is starting or start a week after the superbowl..
