every team plays in fricking birmingham, why would someone travel across the country to birmingham of all places to watch games from a new league, like the Breakers should be playing at Tulane

I get keeping costs down by putting everything in Birmingham, but that city sucks. They should have put it in a larger city where at least you have a chance to sell tickets.

Went to the Stallions vs Gamblers game Sat night, it was a bigger crowd but that's the home team. These other teams have little to no fans. The powers that be didnt think that thru to succeed you have to have home town advantage with fans.

One location set in Bama, the way the games are scheduled, and then the inherent issues that plague Spring leagues was always going to be a problem. The only way it will work is if the NFL gets fully involved and it is looked as a minor league system, and even then it will struggle.

That league would have a heard time drawing anyway but you have to put Pittsburgh in front of Pittsburgh fans. The Stallions games have had great crowds. I dont know who's idea this was but its a bad one.

Did they think Birmingham, AL was the beacon of hope or something?

that is part - but playing games during the day during the week also doesn't make a lot of sense either - folks are at work/school.
