    Why are so many people intent on throwing away money to prove yet again that a second professional football league in the United States isn’t viable

    I don’t understand why these teams spend millions on branding to choose such stock names and logos. Only one with any type of originality is the Maulers. But then they have a guy in a hard hat swinging a hammer? Might as well call themselves the Pittsburgh Not the Steelers. Missed opportunities all around. Going with the under on this league playing a second season.

    I apparently don’t. I take back that part. Can’t hate on that team name/logo choice then.

    I think they are all the same as the original usfl, although not sure on the panthers or stallions

    Putting all the games in Birmingham actually might be the smartest thing a spring league has ever done from an attendance stand point.

    There’s a reason all the leagues always have Birmingham teams. 80s USFL, World League, CFL, Arena2, XFL, Alliance. Birmingham people love football and show up for this stuff. They’ll easily draw 15k-25k per Birmingham game. Plus there’s a brand new stadium they will play in.

    That's great for Birmingham but why should anyone in Pittsburgh give a shit about the Maulers? I understand the strategy to some degree but it isn't very conducive to establishing local fan bases in these markets.

    that makes sense. Never thought about it. Just assumed they did Birmingham instead of Atlanta

    also didn’t know about new stadium. Legion field getting knocked down finally?

    I read somewhere that they want to play all the games at one site the 1st season and then play games at home sites the next season.

    This year UAB playing in a new stadium downtown by the basically new basketball arena (gutted and renovated opens next week). Next to a couple entertainment District, top golf and hotels.

    Legion hasn’t been knocked down yet. I think this league will keep it up another year.

    Congrats to these coaches on a paycheck for a league that probably won’t last more than a season.

    That said I will definitely be watching the games.
