I haven't seen any recent topics on here, but we have a new Bay Area Pro Football Team called the California Redwoods - part of the United Football League. I think they are playing a game at AT&T Park this weekend against the New York Sentinels. Anybody going?
They lost their first game 30-17 against the Las Vegas Locomotives.
By the way, the coach for the Redwoods is Dennis Green.

Since its a new league, they're taking things slowly until it fully gets up and running.
The plan is to expand cities that the NFL doesn't have a presence in (obviously there's going to be some overlap).
Personally, I hope they can pull this off. Having another league would be fantastic. Would give a lot of players who were released by NFL teams another shot (the NFLPA has encouraged those players to look at the UFL), and it would also give smaller cities a football team.
