UFL may not be able to play title game

The UFL will be announcing on Monday plans to scrap the last two regular-season games and fast-forward to the title game.

But the UFL could have a hard time getting some of the players to show up.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells us that the players won’t be getting paid for the final two games that won’t be played.  Also, players have been told that they’ll need to pay their own freight for their trip home.

As a result, some agents are advising players for the participants in the championship game — the Las Vegas Locomotives, coached by Jim Fassel, and the Virginia Destroyers, coached by Marty Schottenheimer (pictured) — to simply not play in what very well could be the last game the UFL ever plays.

    I swear upon all things holy that I had no freaking idea that the UFL even existed.

    Who really cares about the UFL?

    Marty, you should be coaching in the NFL still, man.

    i worked for the ufl and still havent been paid for the month of Dec 2010 and the championship game bonus. The league wont pay and never lives up to their end of the bargain. Huyghe will take care of himself for sure…its criminal and amature hour.

    That’s messed up. I wouldn’t go either. What’s the point? Can you imagine losing that game and having to pay your own way home? CRAZY!

    Marty Schottenheimer is still better than Norv Turner.

    Ah, it’s alright. We’ll have another minor league next year when the SFL starts. Right, 7?

    Who? What?? Huh?? Only a football moron with absolutely no life would care one bit about this so called league. Shouldn’t you have to have a certain number of teams to be considered a league? Why as why, I guess, because that would mean that I care, so forget everything I wrote, just like everyone except those playing in this “league” will forget about it too.
