Lewis got the job because he lives two hours away? Really? Wow.

Ebersol fils' idea that 80 million people - a quarter of the country - stops watching sports entirely the week after the Super Bowl AND that those people will watch a football league with no history, no names (outside of the coaches) and no connections to anything just because they can watch it on their phones and play fantasy football with guys they've barely heard of is ridiculous.

They have some people behind this with actual money and experience. But their premise is flawed. This unicorn that all that's been lacking in spring football is someone to come along and do it right is insane. It's not that. It's that the football cannot be good enough.
