USFL Attempts To Relaunch On Fox

First it was the XFL that came back from oblivion, only to file for bankruptcy and be taken over by a consortium led by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. (It's supposed to re-launch in 2022.)

Now it's the USFL that's attempting a Hail Mary pass, with the help of Fox, attempting a resurrection the same year. 

Is there really room for three football leagues on TV? (Four if you count the CFL.)

I wonder if CHCH will try to pick it up again? From March 1983:

Re: USFL Attempts To Relaunch On Fox

Looks like CHCH had a beer company backing their ad revenue back then. 
Maybe if CHCH were to do this today, they'd want the same?

Re: USFL Attempts To Relaunch On Fox

I've seen something called the TSL or The Spring League on FOX.

The calibre of play wasn't all that great, but it's been going since 2017 so it must have a following.
