The dead UFL

Recommended Posts

The Brewers and Spurs own the Milwaukee Admirals and San Antonio Rampage, respectively.

Actually, I believe figures from the Brewers, including the majority owner and GM, own the Admirals. Not the baseball club itself.

Here in NYC, the Yankees are a minority owner in our new MLS club. After beating out the Mets, who wanted in on the sport.

Only one club folded, Tampa Bay.

Two, actually; the Miami Fusion folded at the same time as Tampa.
Yes. But Miami was an expansion team. I was going off of the original teams.

Is there anyone who didn't see that this league had no chance?

I used to be a member of the UFL fan site called "UFL Access". Early on they had us all fooled. The commish and league's founder talked a big game. By the time the 2nd season ended things started to come out about their crappy business handlings. It's a shame. The UFL actually did deliver on the field. Just goes to show you've got to have your sh** together if you want to start a new professional sports league.

Here's the thing: they did have a chance. I believe between season 2 and 3, the NFL wanted to buy the league. The UFL wanted more money, so the deal fell through. That was their chance, and they blew it.

I liked the tusk down by the facemask on the Tuskers' helmet. I recall a lot of helmets getting knocked off during UFL games, could have inspired a drinking game.
