Many people (myself included) wondered whether their would be an exodus of players from the NFL to the UFL if the NFL's season was seriously questioned. Okay, I'll admit that the notion always seemed a little far fetched. After all, major sports leagues don't lose top-notch players, even during work stoppages. It would seem that I now have my answer.
According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, sources are telling him that players are being sent home from camp due to financial woes. So much for paying NFL players to switch leagues. Their seems to be a hierarchy of football in North America, and the UFL just isn't destined to be part of it. Others have tried to insert their own brand of football (remember the XFL?). The fact of the matter is that the NFL will always be first, followed by college football, and the CFL and the AFL. 4 leagues are enough. We don't need more.
