    By the way, when are these games going to be played? I know it'll be in the Fall but it'd be foolish for them to have the games on Sundays. Saturdaysmaybe?

    Sounds more legit from recent reports...

    Jim Fassel, Dennis Green, and Jim Haslett are all coaches and it sounds like they're going after more top-name players?

    I heard Mike and Mike say something about them play on Thursday Nights, but I'm not sure. They said it wouldn't work on Saturday either because ofCFB...

    Its not competing with the NFL. My job is handling the ticket sales for the UFL and its basically supposed to act as a minor league with the NFL (like NFLEurope was). Games will be on Thursday or Friday nights and the the games will start in either September and October and run up till Thanksgiving. I dont havemuch faith in it though because these teams are supposed to have 2 home fields. Like the NY team is playing at Giant Stadium and UConn's stadium whichmakes no sense imo.

    Vick being in that league will definitely draw interest...it might be good for him though to just prove to people he can still play, and then join the NFL nextyear.

    Exactly......dude should get back into game shape and sharpen his skills in the UFL before even thinking about jumping back into the NFL.

    In this economy, this league will flop.

    Vick will probably go nuts in this league, if he's still got it

    I honestly don't see how this can prosper. The only way with 4 teams would be making it more regional.

    Vegas, San Fran, Orlando, NY? Like if it's only four teams it should look something like

    NY
    PHI/BAL/DC
    ATL
    TB/ORL

    The travel costs alone are gonna bankrupt this !#@@.

    That's interesting. Another football team in SF? I bet you ATT Park opens up to help with the cost of the lease. I don't think any of the Niners Brasswould want another team on their field...
