Alabama seems like a bad place for something like that. I can't see anyone giving a crap about yet another minor league football team in the state

Weird. Birmingham, Alabama shitting the bed!

?s=21&t=AZxowcI5zi6TnP1Jo0w1Vw

They had a great crowd last night. I'm not sure what Jim is expecting from a team called Michigan and another called Houston playing in Birmingham, Alabama on Easter afternoon. When you think about it, it's pretty stunning that the attendance isn't exactly zero.

I was watching this crap for like 5 minutes this afternoon and thought "what the eff are you doing?" then turned it to the Red Sox.

It never made sense to me to have all these teams from different states, playing in some neutral site. Felt like a bad idea from the get go.

@mir, I agree, just trolling Dax.

It’s not a neutral site for the Birmingham. Go Stallions!

I guess the league saves a ton on travel and leasing multiple stadiums and is saying it’s basically all about the TV money.  I mean, two networks carried the Saturday night game. Weird.

They have two stadiums and they are cheap relative to an NFL city.

Legion Field is a dump though.

Protective Stadium is pretty nice.

It sure looked like there were more fans than that on Saturday night. FOX, who owns the league, aren't worried at all about attendance, they knew no one would come to these games. They are looking for TV numbers only. They want to average 2 million a game, which seems very optimistic to me.

The USFL’s Pittsburgh Maulers eat salad, not pizza. Team cuts player for disrespecting team via salad refusal.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I was just coming to post this, the stupidest crap I've ever seen. I hate football guy so much, there isn't anyone so self important and sanctimonious in all of sports, for the second least dignified sport, only behind human male genitals fighting.

17,500 tickets sold for last Saturday night, 30K in attendance, under 15 gets in free, so that's why there were so many kids.   Which is pretty cool.

Fun time.   Certain personalities would have hated it.   But for us normal people it was fun.

45 yard line, 3 full service bars within 30 steps.   Game mechanics/production were top notch.   Good selection of domestics and micros.   No well garbage liquor, all top shelves.

UAB has themselves a great facility given what that program has been through.

6.5/7

Isaiah Zuber was prolific for the Gamblers.  Had a TD catch on a deep in and several nice kick returns.

A fun crowd last night.  About a typical Royals Sunday 80 degree late May sized crowd.
