    Atlanta should have followed Memphis’s lead and been the Atlanta Parcel Service.

    I know it’s a new league but yikes. There has to be some terrible mismanagement behind the scenes right? Everything else (attendance, ratings, etc.) seems to be going better than expected.

    Well if he put in $250 million they should at least be able to afford payroll for a few years.

    Doesn't matter. Whatever they're getting in gate revenue will be dwarfed by what they're getting in broadcasting rights.

    They need to get off CBSSN and NFLN to a lesser extent. I wish they would split between other major networks like the NFL since CBS can’t pick up the Sunday games.

    Iron -6 is easy money. Put the house on it. Put your neighbor's house on it too. Bet the entire neighborhood on the Birmingham Iron!

    The Iron beat the Stallions five days ago, have a better record than them, and are behind them in the power rankings. For shame.

    ...for the the team name...


    I feel like they just googled team names that start with the letter s and thought stallions sounded the best. But I've never been to utah, maybe they are lousy with stallions.

    It’s definitely a little loose


    “The name Stallions honors the spirit of the region and the rumbling presence of horsepower, inspired by Utah’s famed Bonneville Salt Flats, where world land speed records have have been set and broken for decades,” Salt Lake coach Dennis Erickson said in a team statement.
