UFL Heading To Norfolk...???

The United Football League says it is adding a team in Norfolk, Virginia.

The team will be the UFL's sixth team and second expansion franchise for the 2011 season, joining one in Omaha. The league says it hopes to eventually expand to up to 14 teams.

The UFL approved Virginia businessman Jim Speros as the provisional owner of the team, and former Washington Redskins quarterback Doug Williams as the general manager.

Speros was the founding owner of the Baltimore Colts/Baltimore CFL team that played in the Canadian Football League in the mid-1990's.

The league's charter teams are located in Orlando, Hartford, Connecticut, Las Vegas, and Sacramento, California.

Here's Bruce Rader explaining the process with a hell of a long reader, thanks to our friends at WAVY-TV...
