What if ATS started a semi-pro football league?

It can be used to inform the public of the paranormal,conspiracies,ET and cryptids. Let's get real. The american public is obsessed with american football and the entire world is obsessed with association football. So what ATS started a league of amateur teams with gear and uniforms informing the public of the paranormal and alternative subjects.

Think about a football team called the Cleveland Greys vs a football team called the Illinois Illuminists

Think about it. It would sell itself.

XFL comes to mind,

Horrible idea, no offense.

DUDE we should just start our own website! Anyone from around the world could access it for free and there could be an unlimited number of "players" on the team. Also, there would be no other teams so we would never lose (or win, but whatever)

Also I'm pretty sure the majority of ATS users are more accustomed to "futbol" than they are American-style football, and I'm probably making a bit of a stretch but I would dare say that on ATS, athletes are in the minority.

It would never work. Most of the people here would not take off their tin foil hats to put on a helmet.

I think a boxing tournament might be more appropriate

Skeptic would be The Coach with the job on the line.

Springer would be the QB with the best sound bites.

Jesse Ventura would be a free agent that shouldn't be re-signed...unless he learns to work the press better (replies to his OP would suffice).

Great idea...I volunteer for mascot - Conspiracy Coyote....ACME and all.

You mean a FANTASY team right?

All we do is sit on computers drinking beer and eating cheetos...

If not; I advocate another more interesting alternative "MUTTS Westminster Kennel Club"; we design the dogs ourselves, make up/configure ridiculous categories (invented its own 'squeaky toy') and put them in teams to compete as sled dogs Ididerod style. The smaller mutts can be placed in teams of 40 (to make it fair).

I LOVE THIS!

Oh my goodness if I had money I would so totally help fund a local tryout camp!

To be honest, they'd probably all be vying for placement on the ATS team.
We're a tight knit community 'round these here parts.

But I'm pretty broke as a skunk and most I can do is wear the ATS logo shirt on my walks and pass the word along at the local cafe to the other team members to help get the word out....and it kinda snowballs from there.

(Having boobs help in that regard)

I am so down with this idea.
Seriously.

I'll see what I can do....maybe State College/University teams all over the country might moonlight for fundraiser games?

I'll do my best to help!

Brilliant idea sir, simply brilliant!

Yes!!

What a wonderful idea. AND for the balance of the world members that are part of the ATS community, that don't actually reside in the good ol US of A, we can maybe continue with posting and reading articles here. You know, keep that Google advertising revenue coming it. Pfftt!!

Oh I thought you meant real football you know the one you actually play with your feet.


This one.



(best sporting day ever that).


Oh and bad idea, the ref would not show up and we would all think the men in black are government agents.

I think you meant "eating fruit while drinking fruit juice blends (peach/mango -drools-), lemonade, chocolate soy milk, or dark chocolate almond milk".

But yeah, I'm guessing he/she meant a fantasy football league.

I can imagine it now..

Thousands of overweight, desert island looking, middle aged men.. Ascending from their mums basements in unison.. squinting at the rays of sunlight they are not accustomed too..
All in slow motion with a war cry similar to a sick bear that has eaten too much...

When you say 'football' do you mean that American version which mainly uses the hands? Handball it should be called. Not football.

All the players would assume that every game was rigged and that the refs were out to get them.

Why limit to American Football?

Heck, I'd also watch a football (soccer) game or a rugby match or a rowing competition.

I just need a cable subscription and the right channels for my ol' boobtube.

This. Is. Epic.

Can you imagine actually having televised events of the ATS team on the ATS channel?

I still think this is an epic suggestion.
I love sports, just rarely have time to watch a game!

So much win!
I seriously LOVE this idea!

Imagine an australian rules football team named the Rockefeller Oilers vs another AFL team called the Kissinger Bombers.

American football would have poor range outside of Canada and the USA.

Association football would have the best range.

FC Rothschild vs Real Brzezinski C.F.

It would be a nice PPV if you ask me.
