    But it says there's gonna be a sensor in the ball.

    They don't need a sensor in the ball to do this. Though they may use one. The NFL already has one in it for their own use.

    If it's placed on the ground the electronic system could just use an image of the field to calculate 10 yards.

    Honestly, I enjoyed the original XFL more than the NFL. I don't know why, but it was far more entertaining

    If done right, there is cash to be had...
    I mean, the WFL, the original USFL, the Professional Spring Football League (that never got past training camp), the original XFL, NFL Europe and the AAF all failed. A 50 year graveyard of failed and dead football leagues yet here's Fox throwing out $200 million on yet another try.

    I doubt there's money to be made for someone because every rich dumbfuck in the last 50 years has tried and failed. The only one making any money on these ventures is the NFL, and that's only because they got free R&D to improve their product.

    I assume when the refs make the final placement of the ball, at that point they check electronically to see if there is a first down.

    For all the complaints about soccer or lacrosse or rugby being the “sport of the future”, spring football should really take that title. For like 50 years some spring league will pop up and some network will throw millions at it before it inevitably folds.

    I honestly wonder how much money has been p—-ed away by networks trying to make spring football work?

    "Glow ball" is the new "glow puck"!

    Lucky you. Every broadcast on Fox or FS1 has had a USFL commercial on it.

    I’m convinced the quickest way to make money in this country is to start a spring football league. Networks seem to have an endless supply of money to support whatever idea crops up lately.

I remember they played at Nickerson Field at BU when I was a student there. I had a class in the Case Center and had stopped at the McDonalds up on West Campus on the way to class and put the bag down at the front desk to get my ID and one of the Breakers' player opened my bag and took out some fries. Um, hi. That was part of my lunch. Ah, memories.
    The teams that are playing are named the as some of the original USFL teams, like the Michigan Panthers. But I think they are all playing in one spot. If it sticks, next year will be interesting, as another version of the XFL will also start in the spring.
