    The idea is to have 8 teams as "Farm Teams", like Double AA teams in Baseball.

      Honestly, they should try and combine their league with the CFL. That way they have an existing fanbase, and can simply try to expand the league. The CFL's major problem is that it on has a few teams, and the competition sucks. If they could add another 8 teams, and bring in some draft picks, the league could grow.

        That would be like NFL Europa over here or more similar to the NBDL. I doubt their would be an direct affiliation for the teams to a parent NFL team since the amount of teams is far less than those in the NFL. It could work if properly executed and thought out. A league for development of linemen, defenders, Qbs etc with each team having some elder ex-NFL players. Brett Favre for instance lol.

        Have some contracts work out where the NFL team has rights to a player for one development season, then a chance ot put them on the team for that fall or bring them to camp and waht not. Then a free agent for therestof the NFL or this league.

        I could see this league with the executives in place having contracts be voided and the NFL team having to pay that organization and that player to invite them to camp. Another revenue generator.

        I don't know I'm just thinking aloud.

        <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D

          Like i said in the other thread... if they start making bids on 3rd round caliber players, they may just have something. Money speaks volumes, I'm sure they could pry some of these college boys away.

            It worked for the AFL (and to an extent the USFL). I think if they execute this right it could work.

            They'll never compete head to head with the NFL but if they play games when there isn't NFL football it could work out. I'm all for this. Competition is good for everyone.

              It sounds like a great idea to me... with so many people in love with AFL, I think there would be as many, if not more fans eager to watch UFL games... they could have their draft the day after the NFL draft and have rounds 8 through 14... and possibly try and steal some of the lower level players going into the NFL... remember than rookies in rounds 3 onwards don't get paid much at all, so getting them would be quite easy.

                They just got to have mandatory contract's for their draft which would exceed the amount a second or third round player would get in the NFL draft.

                Since there is only gonna be 8 teams, I dont see why each team wouldnt be able to get like 5 guys a year who otherwise would have went in the 3-5th rounds of the NFL draft.

                It all just depends on them finding about 8 owners who are willing to see this through and spend the money and they could have something decent going on.

                  I heard some of the cities they are intersted in getting a Franchise in are LA, Las Vegas and Mexico city.

                    That's actually a pretty decent idea. Have a US and a Canadian Division. Scoop up 3rd round guys, and try to make something happen.

                      That's why NBA and MLB aren't as big as NFL...there are games every day and they're not special. The NFL schedule is 16 games - 17 weeks. As much as I would like to watch Football year round, it could be detrimental to the way I view the game.

                      On the other hand, NFL will always be viewed as the highest level of competition, so standout rookies won't give up going to the NFL for some wanna-be copycat. Stupid idea, he's just money hungry.

                        I absolutely agree. Bad idea.

                            More games/another league would be annoying. Thats part of the fun of football, every freaking game matters, not like basketball where theres so many a clump of ten just gets shrugged off

                              This is the best idea since the XFL... Wait a minute!

If Cuban wants his league to work he will have to sign big name free agents from the NFL who are already household names. Although I love the way the new commissoner is handling business and weeding out the badseeds it isnt hard to imagine players like Pac Man Jones, Mike Vick, Chris Henry, and Ricky Williams playing in another pro football league without having to face the constant scrutiny like they do in the NFL. If he is smart he wont try to compete with the NFL, he will make his league an accessory to it.
                                Only the criminal element and their prison groupees would interested in something like that.
