    Probably been posted before sorry if I missed it but have just come accross this league by accident actually, and it seems that they have their draft tomorrow.

    Anybody else heard anything about it? Seems we have a team in Houston 'Team Texas'. Looks like an intresting idea and something I will follow to see how it gets on.

    Football in the spring is never a bad thing. Will fill a void for me that has been left by the demise of NFL Europe.

    I wonder how well the league will do. I can't imagine that the crowds are going to be very large at all. It sounds interesting but will they make enough money to keep it going for very long?

    Only time will tell I imagine, they must have a fair amount of backing for the league and will have looked at what past leagues have done wrong ie. XFL, NFL Europe (other than it being in europe)

    I hope it succeeds it will give alot more people a chance to show what they can do after college and provide more players to the NFL pool in future years. There are always a few gems in the pack.
