    Interesting that none of these players caught on with any NFL team...Brandon Moore also played with the Niners AFTER the Pats and was a decent player...

    Ironically there was just a Favre Wrangler commercial...

    Flutie is the color commentator, BTW. Kordell Stewart is one of the sideline reporters.

    Why do both teams have teal colors...I KNOW I have a VGA problem...BUT they look so similar..it looks more like a inter team scrimmage...

    I hope Wiggins does well in this league...Where would be have been in the snow bowl without him and his clutch crucial 10 receptions in very bad conditions?

    The California team is in electric light green.
    LV is in a grey blue and looks like someone made a uniform out of an athletic shoe.

    The whole thing looks sad and unprofessional.

    I would disagree, they've done a pretty good job so far.

    Which is precisly why I think it needs to gain a decent following. A little love (and some much needed $$$) will go a long way to making it better.

    DeDe Dorsey has such soft hands he can catch passes 9 yards away from the QB.

    UFL vs. XFL is a bunch of has beens vs. a bunch of never weres...

    At least the UFL has top level experience for multiple seasons, XFL I don't believe had many if any who had much experience.

    Right, that's pretty much correct. Not just on the field, but off. Most of the UFL executives, including the commissioner, are former NFL employees. The UFL is being run a hell of a lot differently than the XFL.

    Who was the most talented player fron the XFL to come into the NFL?

    Wasn't there a player from the Las Vegas Outlaws team which played well for the NFL Panthers?..He Hate Me was on the back of his jersey,I think.

    It's explained on the left; the uniform designer had to use the four UFL colors (green, blue, silver, white) in each of the uniforms.

    Yes, Rod Smart.

    Kevin Kaesviharn was probably the best. Tommy Maddox, Mike Furrey, Steve Gleason, Yo Murphy, and Corey Ivy are among the other notables.

    The guy in as the GM for all four teams built the Saints up...he knows how to build a foundation from nothing.


    The four owners are all well established financially sound investors in their areas who have deep pockets and know how to turn a profit from their investments...the Florida owner has experience owning a sports team in a tough place to own that has managed to turn into a winning team from a last place perennial cellar dweller

    And unlike the XFL where only one coach had been a top level head coach(Ron Meyer), the UFL has three guys in there running the teams who have been winners in tough markets under pressure...
