    My Hood League is just an idea I have right now. Its were we go to hoods and get guys who like playing football. They get together make their own teams and we play on the streets. you only need a qb,rb,and 3wrs. 5 guys. 10 make the roster. you play both sides of the ball. I guess we could get local biz to sponser the teams and unless the game is being played in your hood you have to buy tickets. say 2 bucks for kids 4 for adults ? This would be cool and teams could scout the games. if they like someone bring them in on the Practice squad and who knows ............... anyone wanna help start this ?

    Its simple actually. The only expenses would be traveling security. You cant have a drive by being done in the middle of the game ............. local bizs could pay for all that.

    could be an interest in the idea and it is also a tax deduction. As well as advertising for their company.

    Rugged you wouldnt find anyone to sponsor them, and you need some sort of insurance - medical - don't you? I know you do in Australia and i doubt anyone would playing street ball with the high risk of danger.

    One problem I see is that there is no point in having a running back if it is touch.

    And isnt this just flag football anyway?

    There's no shortage of players for practice squads.

    I can't begin to start pointing out the faults in this. I really can't, there are two many. Lack of motivation for almost anyone is a good one.
