    And the UPSL is a league that has....some sort of mechanism (though not in all its divisions) for teams to move up based on sporting merit, but I can't remember what that's called right now.

    It starts with "b" and rhymes with "tribe".

    Considering their CEO did time for shady stuff, that might very well be a good enough synonym, yeah.

    Any news on TV coverage or internet broadcasts when the league kicks off?

    I realize that the NPSL Pro probably won't include NPSL at this point, but: https://www.npsl.com/news/10846

    That will probably apply to the the Founders Cup.

    Hopefully more professional than the formatting on the story about how professional the broadcasts will be.

    I don’t see this thing starting in fall. Or ever for that matter.

    FC will happen, it's whatever next year holds that's up in the air. Even if Miami United drops out, the east would still be at 5 teams.

    I guess the thing I'm most skeptical about on this is that I was already having trouble figuring out where the next batch of NPSL Pro teams were coming from (beyond the Founders Cup teams, I mean) and his potential targets don't really overlap with where I could see them coming from.
    I guess it depends a lot on the definition of "east coast" (Lenard is in Texas) and "Midwest".

    I still have a really hard time seeing any teams in my mental picture of those regions being ready for L1 by 2021. Jacksonville or Miami United, maybe. I could maybe see Grand Rapids thinking this would work. Possibly Duluth.
