      Don’t feel bad dog, at least your state do have Pro Sports team, everytime we get a team here in Birmingham, AL it may last only a years or 2 years then the whole league go out of business.

    Mark – I would not read too much into this as far as XFL impact, these are simply the names of the Old USFL teams sans a couple.

    Same with San Antonio – I can definitely see SA still on the potential city list – but in 2021 lets be honest SA “Gunslingers” won’t fly with the PC crowd. So they may use another name and have no need to file yet.

    I think this is all being done as a ‘tease’ by FOX/USFL to generate interest and speculation on what cities will may get teams and create some friendly competition and BUZZ.
