Have never bothered to mention the fledgling United Football League in this space because there have been no Raiders ties that I’m aware of, not to mention my natural skepticism about it lasting more than a year or two.
That said, there’s a lot to like about some of the rule differences with the NFL released by the league today. Among them is the abolition of the “Tuck Rule,” although there was no mention of the abolition of Walt Coleman.
Also like the idea of giving each team a possession in overtime, as well as replays being decided in the booth rather than by an official on the field.
