Pulling people out of the ditc...
flipping channels sunday and stumbled on the game, more people on the field than in the stands. football appeared to be equivalent to a good high school game. As the majority owner, i guess Fox News can waste valuable TV airtime on this, but don't see it making it, 3 year investment or not. are they not aware that NFL viewership is also down?

now, this Sunday is the final day of the Barclay's Premier League, with all 10 matches being broadcast at the same time on 10 different channels. This is worthy of watching, for sure. of course, Fox lost that contract to NBC several years ago and has to contend with lowly, inferior MLS, which no one really cares for either.

I think it's also weird that all the games are in Birmingham, regardless of who's playing. That said, I'll watch high school football over Barclay's Premier League any day.

all the games are being played in B'ham to reduce the travel expense for the teams, this is supposed to be for the first 2 years until the league becomes financially viable.

then i saw last night a scroll on ESPN that the XFL is restarting and ABC/ESPN/FX will be broadcasting all those games.
