Let me preface this column by saying there’s no reason the United States Football League (USFL) cannot survive.
Same rings true with the XFL.
And even Major League Football (MLFB).
I have yet to catch a Fan Controlled Football (FCF) game but I’m still a fan of that as well.
My point in saying all of this is that we, as football fans, need to come together and be supportive of one another — and of one another’s leagues.
There’s no reason for name-calling or backlashing.
As fans, we cannot control what league management or team presidents do or say about other teams or leagues.
But we CAN control what WE do and what WE say.
Let’s be supportive, not only of one another but of all of these leagues that are fighting to survive here in the United States.
There’s no reason that multiple spring football leagues can’t survive here in America.
The on-field talent is there.
The money is there.
The coaching staffs are there.
What is mostly needed is fan support.
That means watching games.
Attending games when possible.
And more than anything else, once again, being supportive of one another.
Personally, I’m very excited about all of these leagues that are popping up here in the United States.
I’m also excited about watching these former college athletes perform at the next level.
Sic ‘Em Bears!
Thus far in the USFL, every game has been entertaining.
This past Saturday alone, we could’ve had a top 10 SportsCenter highlight reel of just those two games alone.
XFL 2023 is right around the corner.
MLFB is still trying to get the ball running when it comes to their league, but it looks like operations may be starting soon.
Come on, football fans!
Let’s cheer each other on and quit calling each other names.
ALL of these leagues can survive.
Let’s make it happen.
