    I hope being watched isn't something they're terribly concerned with.

    Spring league with a team in San Antonio, I'd watch a game or two of it. I doubt it'll be broadcast on any of the major broadcast channels though.

    Many football fans will watch a game or so of it. Like they watch a game or so of every alternative league that tries to pop up, ever.

    And then they go on about not caring about really, really poor football that they have to investment in otherwise, as always.

    I think ESPN 23 might be carrying the games.

    They’re showing one game a week on CBS.

    I hear they’re going to get rid of the kickoff and the PAT. I think I’ll watch at least one game, to see how that works out.

    Is this going to be like American style rugby?

    I'd watch Hack & Mettenberger play rugby.

    I wonder if they reached out to Ryan Mallett.

    So the uniforms are all the exact same layout, just different colors.

    Lame.

    They could have blue turf and 14 different uniforms for their season ... thankfully they don't have NCAA money.

    The Birmingham uni is pretty slick. Simple.

    What I found interesting, is that Apollos and Stallions were 2 of the name finalists for what became the Texans. The Apollos have the Astros color scheme.

    What if this would have been the NFL team in Houston? (I added the star, I thought it needed something :)) ...
