Bust. No one in those cities will spend money on third rate football, led by the grifter McMahon

Only 1 of these alternative leagues will be able to last.

I think their model will be tied to getting local talent who grew up or went to college in those regions to get fans to hve some interest.

Neither will be able to lure guys way with money like the USFL did back in the day. Many forget how many big names went to that league.

XFL was scooped by the AAF in starting first and that doesn't bode well.

Of the cities named only St. Louis doesn't have an NFL team. A better business model would be going into markets without a pro team.
