Edit: We have an international team, USA Rugby. which plays other countries but there is also professional rugby teams that make a good salary. Just sayin'

It is highly unlikely any football league has a real chance at making it. There is just too much money and power behind the NFL and college football, and these powerful wealthy people will never allow anything to interrupt their profit margin.

The NFL seems fine with the CFL as a farm league.

I thought that coin toss thing they did was silly too. 2 guys making a dash for the ball at center field...

It will be interesting to see what they do differently second time around.
The XFL did one thing great and that was all the drama and little skits, straight out wrestling.

Pro sports has a lot of drama and can be like a soap opera at times cause the drama is entertaining at times. McMahon seemed to catch onto this and played it perfectly in the XFL. The NBA has the most drama of any pro sport in this country. Just look at all the stupid debates about LeBron James and over-analyzing of little meaningless things. Retired NBA players sound like bitter old men always talking about "back in my day, it was better".
