The original Dixon plan is still the only sound plan for an alternative league. Payscale must be kept small and the team must market heavily. The UFL didn't really spend anything on marketing. The...

I heard from one of the co-owners of the Evansville Crush that Cincy was going to drop completely to a Premier level team. If there is a merger Cincy will not be part.

There are many things wrong with your assumptions. I never endorsed the A-11 offense or the idea of the A11FL. I think they are ridiculous. I said "if you want" I never said "I want". I simply...
