12,167 attended tonight's UFL game in Hampton Roads, Virginia! While that attendance sounds bad, the Sportsplex only seats 14,000. Virginia Destroyers won 34-17 over Las Vegas Locos. At least attendance is doing good this year so far. This game also had no tv....just radio with radio also being online.

There's enough college players to form a second league if the media actually reports on UFL games. And don't you dare give me that BS of ''Oh, that's true, but most college players suck'' Total BS.

Another turn over by Omaha. Tipped ball turns to INT.

And now another INT, this time by Omaha.

I agree with you, but don't drag out the "media" excuse.....this is how it works in todays world, you have to prove yourself worthy of media coverage...the media isn't obligated to cover you

if UFL games were filling stadiums, they would get more coverage, but they aren't

UFL To Fold? Not officially...but at first I thought 'Gee, maybe my memory is bad and the title game was always suppose to be today, Oct 21st' No, was suppose to be Nov 4th or 5th. League CANCELED games...O-M-G you don't even have MONEY for a full 7 game season.... Now it's 4 game reg season...Omaha and Sacramento play a consolation game tomorrow night for their 5th games and Las Vegas goes for that rare 3-peat title win over Virginia--who they beat last two years in title game--when team was Florida.

For what it's worth, Veetle will have live web stream at 8pm EST for Title game in Virginia. likely a death blow now...

http://www.ufl-football.com/

EDIT NEW INFO

http://espn.go.com/united-football-l...g-season-short

Found that link searching google...CBS AND TNT said 'No' to airing games in summer. Guess that happens when you have 5, then 4 team league. . At least UFL clearly states they are open with working with NFL...

Just 4 giggles, NFL should say 'Merge with us, we move Las Vegas to LA in a few years, Virgina to Toronto, etc' Doubtful.

Default United Football League Commissioner Resigns

http://fangsbites.com/2012/01/united...oner-resi gns/

Quote:
The United Football League which was hoping to gain fans in its three years of operation has announced that Commissioner Michael Huyghue has resigned. He has been the Commissioner since the league’s inception in 2009. The league has played with four or five teams in its three seasons. Plans for the 2012 season will be announced at a later date.

Huyghue has overseen league play and attempts to expand beyond five teams, however, the UFL has been hampered by lack of interest, lack of a steady TV contract and funding.

We have this press release from the UFL regarding Huyghue’s resignation.

The UFL is on the verge of dying. It is too bad, because as a start up football league, I thought they might have a chance. There may not be enough football fans to go around. I am one fan who enjoys NFL and college football and other forms of it (except maybe arena football), but this a league that could have used a serious infusion of cash from investors. Sorry, UFL. It was nice while it lasted.

The league's Facebook posted a new article!

April 16th league meeting.

May 1st announcement. Expected 5 team league. National/Regional tv deals.

The article stated the league is expected to sign nationally with CBS Sports Network, but league owner would not comment.

Two games a week, Wed and Fri beginning Sept 19th. Think this means SportCenter may cover it more...or at least the title game. CBS Sports Network.

boom-la-le-la-da, NFL.

NFL: sooooo scared. And shame on you CBS lol.

Negative article for a ousy league?

We see how things kick off TONIGHT...on the 26th...at 9pm Eastern. I have no idea if the game is on tape delay or not...but season opener for the 4th season is tonight, Virginia at Las Vegas.

And the league website is still down.

At least the game is on the higher end cable packages. CBS SPORTS NETWORK is airing games for this season and--if there's a 5th season--next season.

I'm just imaging two crappy teams playing in a dead empty stadium.

Teams are pretty good in league. League doesn't know how to promote is all or pay people on time.

And I read 1,000 at most were in Sacramento. I know in Omaha and Virginia, people go. Last week in Virginia Beach, around 5,300 were at teh game. Only 14K stadium. Last YEAR Omaha and Sac did around 10K. I know the 2nd year in the league, it was 5 team league, Omaha being new team, they did 10-12K a game, looked good on tv.

The attendance is worse this year cause the league announced the season 7-9 days before season began...

We had pretty good crowds in Hartford too, I attended one game and the atmosphere was a lot of fun. I was disappointed when they "suspended operations" for the team

This thread makes me sad..
I really hope the USFL works out better than this.
Spring football is something I've wanted for a long time.
