    Re: Interesting Jim Haslett Story

    Because the XFL proved that people just don't care...no matter when you put it on.

    The NFL is still looking for a way to have some sort of farm system that is more akin to the NFL style than Arena ball. 4 teams is a modest way to test the waters. Using viable (reasonably) NFL coaches might allow them to better use and assess talent. We'll see.

    What would make this truly interesting is having the new league's teams associated with an NFL franchise (as in baseball). That might draw more interest in the teams, as spectators may be watching and interacting with players they might one day see on their favorite NFL squad. A supplemental draft each year might be interesting. Maybe even the option of sending players down, or bringing players up during the season.
