Without a mega TV deal, no, a new USFL could NOT work here.

And Windsor expansion makes perfect sense as long as you don't ask the Argos or the Ti-Cats to vote on it.
Old enough to remember when bashing the ABA was fun.

Windsor would be borderline. 316K in the metro area. No stadium to speak of (University of Windsor's stadium is the smallest in all of Canadian major college football at 2K and they don't fill it). Plus you're about a three hour or so to Hamilton. Add another hour and a half to Toronto.
The economy there is still a mess (but better than across the river).
You might draw a fan or two from Detroit.
