UFL To Play '11 Season, Hopes To Settle Finances, Relocations
Published January 17, 2011
WAITING TO BE PAID: SPORTBUSINESS JOURNAL's Liz Mullen notes UFL players are "still waiting to be paid for that league's championship game, which was played in late November." Las Vegas Locos DB Kevin Hobbs was "told that he won't get his check for that game until the end of this month." Hobbs said that "he received his paycheck for the Locos' last regular-season game, played Nov. 20, on Jan. 7 after receiving three e-mails from UFL officials telling him the check would be coming soon." He said that "it would be one thing if he had agreed to play for no pay." Hobbs: "I didn't sign up to work for free." The UFL "intends to play another season" in '11, but Hobbs "wonders about it." Hobbs: "They're saying there is going to be a season this year, and I am thinking, 'How is there going to be a season when you can't pay money due from last season?'" (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 1/17 issue).
