If this UFL wanted to give itself a halfway chance of being successful, they'd play their season during the NFL's offseason. Starting in October, when the NFL is right in the middle of things, is pretty dumb. They should start their season RIGHT NOW.
This is a great time for something new. It's sort of a lull between the Super Bowl and March Madness. But, OTOH I think a lot of people are "footballed out" right now. It takes time to recover from all of the Super Bowl hype.
Their plan is to play on Thursday and Friday nights. Maybe they think that'll give them a chance.
Not me, I cry myself to sleep every night until football season starts again.
Now that would football me out.There is already Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday. I need a couple nights off to live some sort of life during football season
