Cuban will try football

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is part of a group considering formation of a football league that would compete with the NFL for players drafted lower than the second round. The league, still very much in the preliminary stage, would play its games on Friday nights. The NFL does not play then because of the potential conflict with high school football. "It's a pretty simple concept," Cuban said in an e-mail to The Associated Press. "We think there is more demand for pro football than supply."

As long as 'He Hate Me' is in uniform, sign me up! Seriously, the XFL already showed that no one wants to see a bunch of scrubs on the football field. Cuban's only hope is to allow the league to sign suspended NFL stars. Who wouldn't want to see the Cincinnati Bengals square off against Michael Vick of the Georgia Mad Dogs, Pacman Jones of the Las Vegas Rainmakers or to see Ricky Williams running for the Toronto Smoke?
