Kevin Kelley,

The USFL is a business. If the New USFL administration stays on top of the changing market every Month & Quarter & follows the Money they will be successful.

Following the Money in Business is Not a dirty Word as it has become when applied to Social Media status, Government Officials governing behavior status.

Following the Market price = Basic Economics in NGO funded private sports Leagues.

Didn’t the NFL Europe & the Arena Football League go out of Business because they didn’t stay with current market Conditions?
I’m asking. Anyone? Anyone?
