It's midnight on the east coast, which means it's time for ATW 410. This week featuring 'Defunct Sports Leagues' in history.

I'll go with my personal favorite. The USFL, specifically the Denver franchise (the Denver Gold). Their color scheme made them look a little like the Steelers. Their play however....did not!

Well I gotta go with the most recent failure: the Alliance of American Football. Couldn't even make it through their first season.



We had season tickets for the Jersey Generals, featuring Heisman trophy winners Hershel Walker and Doug Flutie. It was one of many unsuccessful businesses for that other guy.
