It gets better. He's out for today's game with a groin strain. You can't make this stuff up.

I saw some figures on first game attendance for some of the other teams.

You might be surprised to hear that one of the most successful teams had the smallest attendance at the first game - the Stallions.

The Cudas and the Bolts ended up drawing flies when it got down to it.

Will the game being on local cable TV have any effect?

Neat, I don’t really care. Don’t really get why you don’t want this to be attended

So far this isnt.....terrible. Real world though, I'm always skeptical of these semi pro football leagues because they always seem to go belly up pretty quick. I do hope this league finds its niche though and is successful. I'll always cheer for any sports team that represents my hometown.

I'm enjoying watching it on tv. Fellow UAB fan who is there said it looked like a little under 40k in attendance. I think the real test will be what the attendance does the next few games. The last two leagues we have had, the attendance cratered after the first game.

Just a touch under 40k at 17k

Several people who were at the game are saying 17k is way low. Not used to under reporting attendance.

17K is waaaaaaaaaay off. 30K+ easily. Looks like they may have same counting issues as UAB...
