NFL Lockout Watch, Day 12: CFL, UFL Could Benefit From NFL Work Stoppage
Published March 23, 2011
STRIKE WHILE THE IRON'S HOT: In Las Vegas, Ron Kantowski noted the UFL can "provide alternative pro football programming if the networks think they'll be needing it" this fall. UFL Commissioner Michael Huyghue said that the "money being discussed won't erase what the UFL owes," but "from an exposure standpoint, replacing the NFL on one or more Sundays would be more valuable" than signing former NFL coaches such as new Hartford Colonials coach Jerry Glanville. Huyghue: "I think one of the (potential) revenue streams has to start hitting or it will be difficult to continue. I'd love for them (NFL) to get back ... just not right away" (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 3/22).
