I had a Breakers pennant-style flag on my wall I really wish I'd kept. Stuff kept being thrown away each time the 'rents wanted to redo the house.The best thing they have going is that they are owned by Fox Sports, so one would assume they will get some built in coverage and exposure.
But yeah, if it’s like the old Breakers where me, my dad, and about 3500 other people are the only ones giving a crap then it won’t last.
I’m just tired of the NFL monopoly and their Roger Goodell anti-Saints bs that I’m yearning for this USFL to catch on.
The original USFL was this interesting mix of established NFL veterans and camp-body types who were never going to make an NFL roster anyway. Just the names I remember are all over the place.....QB Johnnie Walton, former Rams and Eagles backup when Coury was on Vermeil's staff......RB Marcus Dupree, the famous "greatest that never was" who was a short-time star at Oklahoma when Switzer was there.....RB Buford Jordan, who outperformed Dupree that year and later starred for the Saints......WR Charlie Smith, from Grambling and the Rams and Eagles, played in Super Bowl 15.......WR Frank Lockett, the leading receiver on the team with the modern-day WR body type who had replaced Nolan Franz who had played at Tulane.......TE Dan Ross, who was a top-5 tight end in the NFL with the Bengals and briefly held the Super Bowl record for most receptions in a SB....MLB Marcus Marek, an All-American at Ohio State with big potential but didn't make it past the USFL years as a player.
