    The Fleet v. Iron game this weekend was pretty good.

    I watched opening weekend, found it boring and haven't watched since. It didn't help that self-aggrandizing NFL has-beens such as Hines Ward were making big pitches for the new league during the entire inaugural weekend, and I didn't enjoy those.

    Watching the Memphis Manziels. The man still has obscene arm talent and footwork and a special level of ability to improvise. He's still Better But Drunker Doug Flutie, and I love watching him play football. I noted elsewhere that I think he got kicked out of the CFL because he was flirting with the AAF and the CFL contract had a non-compete clause in it, and the CFL came down hard to dissuade further defectors. That's the reason nothing exciting has come out - it's all just intra minor football league politics.

    They've been switching QBs on and off. Manziel doesn't know the offense so they were just letting him improvise. It went okay. He's such a weird, talented QB.

    This Reece Horn wide receiver from University of Indianapolis who went to camp with the Titans a few years ago then bounced around amateur leagues in Europe looks really good. Who knows if he has the physical traits, but here's his phone number if you literally want to ask him to play for the Patriots (don't do this):

    Goes to show that it really is not so much the sport of football that is immensely popular but the big machine that is the NFL.

    Bummer. I thought it looked really good for an inaugural season. Much better than what I saw in the XFL or WLAF.

    Isn't a big problem something to do with insurance or contracts or something so they can get players to come in and play with a safety net if they end up with an injury that derails or ends their NFL hopes?

    I know people will hate me saying this, but those college kids getting paid $6k a year, all their food, housing and training expenses paid for, all their coaching too, in top notch facilities--won't even mention the free education.

    Well, they are not doing too badly when you see the alternative.

    Take those same players, strip them of the school colors, and basically almost no one wants to watch it.

    I've said this about college ball too.

    An NBDL team would blow the doors off the best college team--but have you seen attendance at NBDL games lately? Not pretty. I'm not even aware if they have any TV showing their games.
