    Wonít happen, and thatís the wrong strategy as well. The USFL died when they were coming up with crazy deals with the likes of Herschel Walker and Jim Kelly. The success of the USFL was due to semi pro regional aspect of it, and not the pro aspect of it. If this new league is going to succeed then they should stay away from being a ďdirect competitorĒ and stick to being a spring developmental league because the NFL will crush them.

    Both of the above sealed the deal for us against Clemson in 2016.

    So it's basically football for wimps ?
    Oh I AGREE!!!!

    BUT - It's where ALL of football MIGHT be headed, if major steps aren't taken to deal with Concussions at the JV and HS level - Which, as we are coming to understand, is where many of these guys suffer the greatest impairments, which are only aggravated at the College and Pro levels.

    I like many of you abandoned the NFL because of the pathetic quality of competition which has sunk to abysmal levels and because these over paid players think no rules apply to them and they are on some higher plain of existence. They are football players, they are not curing cancer or bring about world peace.

    There are good teams in the NFL but only a few and the rest are complete garbage and so most games are simply not competitive or end up in a punting contest.

    As for Birmingham, it might be ok if two things happened, for one if Birmingham's new football stadium downtown was already built, and two if the league's sole reason for putting a team in Birmingham was NOT to be a sacrificial lamb for big market teams to pummel every week. They have some big name and experienced coaches in this league but apparently are giving Birmingham some guy that I've never heard of, who has been unemployed for three years and has never been a head coach at any level in his life. Seriously... That's the best they could do?

    Birmingham isn't the football town it used to be and they certainly won't support a team that is set up by design for failure.

    I mean the XFL gave us Gerry Dinardo.... You can't tell me they were anything more than a "Vandy" to beat up on.

    I watch the NFL because I like football. But if I have something else to do Sunday, Iím fine with that.

    But the big bucks and the kneeling donít bother me.

    The USFL might have lasted a little longer if they donít try to move to the fall. But I think they die out eventually.

    I think whatís funny is that many look at headlines saying ďthe nfl viewership is fallingĒ and think that means college is catching up. But they really donít actually look at the ratings and compare or factor that cable service is in general down. I mean is you look and compare the semi finals and the conference championship games this past year the NFL wins by a pretty considerable margin. Let alone the SB vs NCG. Yeah I know someone would probably argue, ď well what about the regular season in college vs nflĒ Iím still fairly confident that the NFL still wins in prime time, marquee , and garbage matchups game for game vs college.

    The point is the NFL isnít going anywhere. And no league can replace it if individual college games canít come close in matching them.

    Exactly. College is not close to the NFL in viewership/ratings. People who doubt the quality of competition don't watch it or watch it close enough. It is the best players in the world playing my favorite game so I watch it. And you are right it is not going anywhere and no one will come close to knocking them off. So much money.........

    There are a lot of reasons to not like the NFL, but this stuff doesn't make my list. There is far more parity in the NFL than in college football. The games are much closer, and aside from a few really bad teams, any team can beat any other team on a given weekend.

    As for the players - we see the exact same behavior in HS and college. The money that they are being paid is not the problem - it is their "celebrity". They have been treated like stars their entire lives, often starting before their 10th birthday.

    The mayor of Birmingham wants the team to sign Kaepernick.

    The Birmingham team has already failed. They don't understand that people don't want to go to Legion Field in the middle of that neighborhood. They might if the stadium had more parking and was more secure but having to park on the street and pay a kid $20 not to do something to your car is not what people want. You can also mention that the stadium is run down and not fan friendly.

    hopefully...hopefully.......the new stadium downtown in the planning stages and scheduled to be up and ready by late 2020-early 2021 will take care of the issue you mentioned.

    They should do it. Then it will be really funny when he gets benched for the backup because he just isn't good enough.
    Architects do it with models.
