    Yay, another new professional football league.

    But this one is different. It's going to succeed.

    The biggest reason most fail is because it’s ran by some billionaire cult of personality that believes he is capable of taking down the NFL, and the NFL’s lack of interest on minor league teams.

    I think this has a chance to succeed, but they are going to have to have the NFL get interested in the product at some point. I think the biggest advantage this has is that it’s making itself out to be a regional developmental league whereas the USFL and XFL1 tried to be direct competitors. This has the appearance of the World League type feeling.

    The US version of the World League lasted two seasons.

    Which World League - the WFL of the 70s debacle (but an entertaining debacle! - and territorial draft choices) or the WLAF (pronounced "We Laugh"), the NFL's $500M bust of the 90s? Regardless, they were both ideas born of misbegotten parentage.

    More of 90’s version. The problem has always been the NFL’s commitment ( lack of) and the over spending of the idea by the league and broadcast companies. If they would treat these leagues as true minor leagues like other sports then I believe they could succeed. The NFL Europe served as good developmental league for the NFL until the NFL totally abandoned it.

    I just think the biggest pitfall with a Spring league is that football has always been a Fall sport. And Fall already has college and the NFL.

    And to put out an inferior product, it is no different than the CFL's experiment in expansion into the US. Why would I want to watch this?

    The USFL was a good league and may have survived if not for a certain owner.

    As someone that thinks the NFL is in steep decline—for a number of reasons—I think there’s a market out there for a professional league alternative, more than ever before.

    I don't buy that there is much of a market. People always say that in theory but, for example, no one really cares about the arena league.

    I would love to see them bring the NFL down a few notches, or maybe completely.
