Have you ever thought where all this money is coming from? This is not a sure thing. They have to pay the athletes, pay health insurance for the athletes, have to pay referees and stuff, the venues...
Where does all this money come from? Eleiko won't put that much money in there besides the equipment!

I think it was $5mill to start a team. Do the math. There are other streams of income to go along with this.

Wow, that seems like a lot. I mean, you got to have some investors that really think this thing is gonna take off or don't care about that kind of money!

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

Yes 5 million is a lot to start. Best to have smaller venues and get the crowd into it. Might be 500 to 1500 people attending.. but you would never know it. Will take some time to get it going but should be fun.. some tweaks here and I will enjoy it more. I can see it going bigger but how much is the key. Our group is the key focus group and not an overwhellming nod so far by the masses. With that being said I would pay $5.99 to watch each match or $24.99 for the whole season. Driving up to LA from SD to see the match knowing a few of the athletes considering it now. Tickets are 25 bucks and up. I am a fan just want to have them get some character involvement. Even Expendables build the characters before they go HAM on killing everyone in site.

The Philly vs DC match isn't online. Might be a mistake.

Re: Have we all seen this yet?

How hard would it be to splash a graphic up at the beginning of the coverage that introduces all the members of each team. Tiled Brady bunch style. Then allow these teams to wear a team uniform color of choice (perhaps a home/away strip when conflicts).
Reason ?
You know, so I know who the **** they are when I am watching.
