Who killed the USFL?

I live the 30 for 30 series that appears on ESPN. Every episode I've seen has been well researched and compelling.

But one stands out as especially relevant. In who killed the USFL, Mike
Tolling posits:
"Well, it seems that a certain high-profile and impatient team owner, whose name now adorns towers and hotels and golf courses all over the world, had convinced his colleagues that the league should either move to a fall season and go head-to-head with the NFL, or fold its tents."

You can read the full summary here:

Or watch it here:

But in typical Trump fashion, he calls mike dishonest and a loser because he's incredibly thin skinned. You can read about that aspect here:

All about "the witch hunt"

The lame list

Stupidity is something I can not tolerate. Here is my current list of dopey attitudes that chafe me. Don’t be stupid. Don’t be one of these:

  • Anti-science
  • Flat earther
  • Faux patriot
  • Blind supporter of anything, or anyone
  • conspiracy theorist
  • Doubt the Moon landing, or call it a hoax
  • Anti-vaxxer
  • Believe in a deep state
  • Pretending to understand something that is enormously complicated, and just oversimplifying it
