The UFL game that was scheduled in Los Angeles tomorrow has been cancelled, according to a report from the LA Daily News. The Las Vegas Something’ruthers were slated to take on the New York Whatchamacalits at the Home Depot Center, a soccer stadium, but that game has since been rescheduled to be played at Sam Boyd Stadium. But when Vegas becomes your safety site, how bad can things be?
[T]he UFL greatly overestimated its usefulness. Initial plans were to get about 20,000 fans a game, but its announced crowd counts are closer to 12,500. Those actually in attendance would guess it’s closer to less than half of that each game. –LA Daily News.
I was actually looking forward to the UFL, but that damn league seems so content with operating a phantom season that I just can’t find any enjoyment in the ordeal. The UFL’s first season will end with its championship game on the day after Thanksgiving. Don’t expect to take home any leftovers.
