    Nice way to play to stereotypes there, wanker. :
    Yeah - the Europeans don't need any help in starting riots.

    College is a good "minor league" for football if the coaches train their players for the NFL.
    Unfortunately, that's not the case in most colleges.
    Realstically there could be a minor league that may help players develop prior to going to the NFL.
    Maybe that new league that's developing would be better off as such.
    Instead of competing with the NFL, they should work with the NFL and develop players to play in the NFL.
    Not a bad idea.
    That's a very good point EJ.

    Plus, Europe was a developmental league as well as a place to put the guys who did not make it.

    The US has Arena as well.
    I know it's not real football.

    Lets get Vince McMahon involved here folks!
    He can run the minor league.

    LOL.
    I don't think getting Vince involved is a good idea.
    Then players will be suspended for taking roids.
    ;D

    Just because there is a minor league doesn't mean everyone would have to go through.
    If teams think you are good enough they would draft you.
    If you made the squad you're in.
    If not, you go to the minor league program.
    The league would be used to help develop players with the talent but not ready for the NFL.
    Something similar to minor league baseball.
    Many players cut their career short there due to injury.
    It doesn't mean they will get rid of minor league baseball.


    I do see your point but I don't think it would be much of a factor.

    I don't see how you could ever get any good out of that with football. With multiple diiferent systems that teams run on both offense and defense I doubt your players would end up learning for the one your team plays and it would hurt their chances more then helping them.

    Should the NFL have a minor league?
    Well if the NFL owners can't fund & support an NFL Europe league, how are they going to fund a minor league over here?

    I believe it is just called the National Collegiate Athletic Association, and they sponsor and promote football.

    While in Europe, I went to a riot, and a soccer game broke out. ;D
