    Interesting to see how it'll do. I've always thought the NFL needs something of a D-League for guys that can't cut it and may need more time to grow/mature. NFL Europe had that, but alas, it is no more.

    Yeah two leagues trying to compete for a very unrealistic chance of succeeding, doesn't sound like a good business decision. This will come down to who has the most money to spend on rosters in a very limited talent pool.

    That's what I thinking as well.

    And the funny thing is both leagues have ties to the XFL and the lessons learned from that as well.

    I guess I didn't pay attention to the last article I posted but the name of this new league is Alliance of American Football.

    Anyway. They have their first coach.
