Will you watch the televised games of the new USFL pro football league?

The new USFL pro football league debuts this coming Saturday between the New Jersey Generals and the Birmingham Stallions. It will be televised on NBC and Fox Sports. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m., Eastern time. The season runs 10 weeks.

The games should be interesting with some new twists. A three-point option will allow a team that just scored a touchdown to take the ball on the 10-yard line with one play to get into the end zone for a three point conversion. The one point kick and two-yard options will still be available.

Another option will be on an onside kick. Instead of kicking off and trying to recover the ball after 10 yards, the team can run a play with a “first and 12 yard” option. If they make it, they keep the ball.

There are other interesting twists to the NFL rules as well.

So our question today is whether you plan to watch the games of this new professional league.

No political comments, please.

When pro sports and pro athletes became political, I stopped watching as well as supporting them through sponsored product purchases. From disrespecting our flag to telling me what to think and how to vote ended my viewership.

not a chance. with the NBA firmly up the rear ends of the ChiComms, the NFL doing everything they can to alienate fans and MLB trying to ‘out-woke’ all of the others I am no longer a fan or even a fair-weather fan. a pox on all of their houses.

Football year-round? WHOO HOO! Forget Basketball (YUCK), Baseball (except for the World Series), Golf (BARF), and NASCAR (good to nap to, I suppose). Give me Football anytime! I’ll be watching the USFL until it becomes NFL season again!!

Yes, I am a woman and my roommate is male – we enjoy football together!

I don’t watch any pro sports and now that college football players are going to start getting paid for advertising for their schools i might have to stop watching college football as well.

Wife likes football. Hates it when I am in the room as I ask too many questions. I do not understand there are toooo many rules that don’t make sense. New football with new rules?? That would REALLY screw me up. If the idea is to get the pig from one end of the field to the other, then you should just be able to go for it. We never had rules when catching pigs for market or castration.

I generally do NOT watch (or have ANY interest in) “Professional Sports”. In my opinion, there are FAR too many overpaid bums. TRUE professionals (like Cal Ripkin) are extremely rare (or simply no longer exist). I DO enjoy attending MINOR league baseball games but, rarely get to do so these days. It’s sad that MANY parents can not AFFORD to take their kid(s) to a professional sports game as between parking, admission, snacks etc, it costs a king’s ransom which is simply beyond the “average Joe’s” ability to pay. I’d LOVE to see the FANS go on strike in order to rein in runaway costs. Many municipalities saddle their residents / taxpayers with the MAJOR cost of building expensive stadiums which a major league team who might abandon the venue a decade later. Don’t get me started on teams like the NY Jets & NY Giants haven’t played in NY for YEARS (both play in NJ). That simply should NOT be allowed.

I have good memories of taking my son to pro baseball and football games. We would have a great time for less than fifty bucks for tickets, parking, food and drinks. Now a days parking alone is $30! Gave up on pro sports. Take grandkids to park to play ball. End the day with pizza.

A golf tournament once in awhile as the monkey is on your back to win and all are watching. Darn I”ll be an NFL player and sit on the bench for 5 mil a year and won’t cry or disrespect the flag I helped defend for 20 years. . No NFL, MLB NBA and NHL never was into hockey. It’s all about money can’t afford the parking fare say nothing about the seat cost. And couple that with disrespect to the country. Stay on their knees they’re going to need to pray when the money dries up as attendance keeps fading it soon will.

It used to be football season was for cooler weather for me in northern Michigan. I enjoyed watching college and pro games on the cooler, wet yucky weekends. As a snowbird, I don’t get too many cooler weather days. With it being a spring/summer league, I will be out enjoying the weather. Plus I don’t have cable and don’t stream, it’s not Wheel, Jeopardy, NCIS or the NHL, so probably not tuning in!

Have loved football all my life. The fixed games of NFL have ruined it for me. It’s so obvious it’s insulting.
The level of celebrity/money given people playing games is obscene and destructive to society.
Mental illness and corruption have infiltrated all sports.

The question is the first I have heard of the new league. Interesting that they are recycling at least some of the names from the previous USFL of the 1980s. Yes, I’ll try to remember to watch. Thank you for the question!

DON’T watch any pro sports anymore, except golf. Totally agree with comments made by Tom.

I don’t watch the NFL, so I certainly won’t watch this! But as a good Canadian, I do enjoy watching my Winnipeg Blue Bombers win another Grey Cup!

I don’t watch the NFL – why in the world would I watch an NFL wannabe?
