Versus Announces Their UFL Broadcast Team

Tuesday, September 22, 2009


In case you were wondering where Kordell Stewart has been, you're in luck. He's been found, and he's an analyst on Versus for this season of UFL action!!! Stewart will working with PbP man Dave Sims, and the one and only Doug Flutie. Add to that Baltimore Radio's Anita Marks on the sideline, and you have your UFL announcing crew...

The United Football League announced today that four highly talented broadcasters will lead the television coverage of the UFL on VERSUS. Veteran play-play announcer Dave Sims joins the broadcast booth with color analyst and former NFL standout Doug Flutie. Former Steelers Quarterback Kordell Stewart and radio and television host Anita Marks will serve as sideline and features reporters.

“We have assembled a top-notch team to lead our inaugural telecasts on VERSUS,” said Frank Vuono, COO of the UFL. “The combined football experience and knowledge of Dave, Doug, Kordell and Anita will help us provide unprecedented access to professional football while allowing the home viewer prime viewing position that will truly make them feel like they are part of the action.”
I'm not sure anyone is going to watch the UFL, so I don't know what good it would be to judge this team. I personally like Sims and Flutie, and loathe Stewart and Marks, but who knows....maybe they'll make a good team. Here's the schedule again, in case you care....

October 8th- California Redwoods at Las Vegas Locos (9pm)
October 14th- Florida Tuskers at Las Vegas Locos (9pm)
October 22nd- California Redwoods at Florida Sentinels (7pm)
October 29th- Las Vegas Locos at Florida Tuskers (7pm)
November 4th- Las Vegas Locos at New York Sentinels (7pm)
November 12th- Florida Tuskers at New York Sentinels (7pm)
November 19th- Florida Tuskers at California Redwoods (9pm)
November 27th- Championship Game in Las Vegas (3pm)

They expect to draw an audience? On a network that doesn't have much access across the country?

i prefer the Oakland Invaders and Houston Gamblers of the USFL. Locos? Do they have a mascot from Cypress Hill? Now, THAT would be cool

Actually, the Sentinels are from New York and the Las Vegas team is the Locomotives (some are calling them the Locos for short).

I think its an interesting experiment with some solid financial backing. They seem happy to pick up what scraps the NFL leaves (starting their season well after the last roster cut from the NFL), which might work for them. I hope they succeed as I'm a big football fan.
