    Wonder which Houston franchise will be kept. I'm hoping it's the Roughnecks.

    Always liked the Gamblers and would have preferred. But it doesn't matter. This league has red flags all over it.

    The former USFL was onto something. It had an identity. The former XFL knew what it wanted to be, but got wet feet. The latest iterations appear to have almost no clue as to what they are or want to be, and this merger seems like a last grasp to hold onto something that needs to be shot. I will still tune in though.

    They certainly screwed the pooch in Houston. Should have held onto the Roughnecks roster and stuck with the Gamblers branding. Went with the worst of both worlds instead.

    You better get a quick look if you're a fan, this is doomed IMO.............I wish they would have at least kept the Gamblers branding. I watched for a few minutes and I just don't have any rooting interest, don't know the players and from the few minutes I watched it looked like the fans were minimum at best.

    From what I have heard the Roughnecks of last year the team and coaches are now the San Antonio team and the Roughnecks are the Gamblers from last year. We got duped.

    They got to figure out a way to get scoring up. The games are just so boring when you don't really have a rooting interest.

    Thats the problem with these leagues there aren't enough good QB's in the NFL and you have a league full of guys that aren't good enough to be at least 3rd string NFL QB'S.
