UFL faces another lawsuit

As the UFL tries to convince the public that it’s not in a possible death spiral, the league continues to find itself . . . in a possible death spiral.

According to the Sacramento Business Journal, a P.R. firm hired in 2010 to help the team formerly known as the California Redwoods have success in their first season as the Sacramento Mountain Lions has filed suit against the UFL, seeking payment of more than $250,000.

The suit alleges breach of contract, which means the the firm believes it was promised something it didn’t get.

Which, in the case of most of the people who currently have a problem with the UFL, is money.

Then again, given that the firm’s strategies included a scavenger hunt for a cardboard cutout of quarterback Daunte Culpepper based on clues posted on Twitter and Facebook, we think we know why the UFL stiffed them.  Allegedly.

Last month, Mark Cuban sued the UFL, claiming that the league had failed to repay a $5 million loan.

    Media coverage was sparse for the UFL season and playoffs. But they’re coming out in droves to witness the “death spiral” grand finale.

    Is the picture you used Daunte Culpepper, or a cardboard cutout of Daunte Culpepper?

    $250,000 … that’s it???

    Give the sleazy lawyer (Michael Huygue) the thing he loves the most … a real lawsuit!!!

    Lawyers do the worst job when you give them money and trust them as businessmen.

    1. They have crappy arguments for your cases.

    2. The only thing they spend money well on is office space.

    3. They create pro football websites in West Virginian basements!!!!!

    The UFL should have followed the USFL model (early one) and filled the football void between the SuperBowl and training camp…a time when even the most loyal NFL advocates would tune in to watch a game

    Dante’s cutout looks exactly like him. But it has better mobility.
