UFL Suffers Brutal Attendence Numbers For Game Four

OK, so the picture is not of AT&T Park on Saturday.  But it does get to the core of the issue.

The UFL drew 6,341 fans to 41,503 seat AT&T stadium.

This is officially a crisis.

AT&T Park was the XFL's best stadium. The San Francisco Demons drew an XFL best 35,005 fans per game.

Add on the fact that the 49ers have been in a contentious negotiation with the city for years over a new stadium and this should have been the safe play for the UFL.  This should have been the best site of any of the UFL sites.

If UFL commissioner Michael Huyghue does not see this red flag, it would be a strong indication the man is colorblind.

The now defunct Arena league numbers are KILLING the UFL's numbers. And with a few more games like this, the Double-A AF2 numbers might start catching up to the league.

Huyghue has delivered what his resume suggested he could deliver—a mini WLAF.

The UFL ownership will have to determine if that is going to suit their long-term needs.
