This is going to get interesting. Just gave all the FLW guys who don't want to fish the MLF format another option.

Is it anything like the Professional Anglers Association from a few years ago?

ZERO room for this in the market. Will be interesting to see it evolve and if it really can.

With MLF absorbing FLW as "step up league" are you sure about the above statement? If so expand on that thought. If it was entry of $5K for $100K to win I'd think it might get traction.

Wow, no room for this trail? Is Boyd going to buy them out? Or squeeze them out with sponsors?
This announcement struck a nerve and quick. Please give the behind the scenes information of why it won’t work.

Competition can be a good thing.

Where's the sponsorship coming from? Where are these additional 125 anglers? Who's rolling the dice on propping this up for a few years sight unseen? Who's going to fix the bad name and bad logo they just launched with? Lol

Maybe they'll surprise me but I don't see the horsepower necessary to prop up a full professional league given what BASS and MLF have in play. They've got until 2021, so they at least have some time.

To me, the timing is pretty good, 2021.

All 3 tours worked as far as I'm concerned in 2019. All had full fields, had plenty of anglers in the Costa's and BASS Opens not to mention co-anglers.

One problem is the entry fee, BUT, at least they aren't having to pay $40k+ less tournaments and 1 championship covering 3 season changes. Then comes the sponsorship money, how much non-endemic can they pull?

I like the idea, I hope it works, as long as they stay out of the p!ssing match between BASS and MLF, they may just do ok.
