Post PFT on SpringLeague's July 15 showcase game

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...h-sort-of/amp/

>>
Former NFL running back Fred Jackson wants to play football again. And he will. In a way.


Jackson will participate next month in a Spring League Showcase game in California on July 15, along with former NFL defensive end Greg Hardy and former NFL running back Anthony Dixon.

The game, to be played at Napa Memorial Stadium, will pit Spring League California against Spring League East. Terry Shea will coach the California team; Donnie Henderson will lead the East team.

The Spring League debuted earlier this year with four teams playing a total of six games at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.<<

I don't think they played six games in Greenbrier, did they?

Also, Pro Football Talk needs content. That's the only reason they "cover" this league.

I thought I gave information on another thread.

Woods is in Napa, so dudes need to Left/Uber 50+ miles from.OAK or SFO just to get to the location.

And the one game is on a streaming site for $20/month or $150/year.

And 4th, I live in the Bay Area. None of the five stations which provide 4+ hours of local news. No station has mentioned The Spring League*.


*- I don't watch KTNV-11 from San Josť much as they cover news south of Fremont and Palo Alto.

I wouldn't think they Woods. Its not a League its an academy - it may get a media mention due to some names playing or if Woods has contacts.

The SL is geared towards players and teams (CFL/NFL perhaps even AFL). The production quality is not broadcast or near broadcast quality as we know. Those are his changes from the FXFL. So from an entertainment perspective not very interesting, from a business POV more so. If he lands more players he may step it up next year.

And BTW - Napa is great.

I think you overindulge on the wine, given how often you seem to drunk post.
