Elite Football League in India, etc. & former Lion

Some former NFLers and Mark Wahlberg are involved with this: Brandon O’Neil Chillar, Mike Ditka, Michael Irvin.

In soccer, the big teams market like crazy in Asia and the NFL is now in China as is the NBA and MLB.

I saw this on CNN with who I think is the same Tony Simmons of BC Lion fame as one of the interviews ---- and not sure if I got it right but the games have been played in front of all but a few people and are now being released in the media on TV over the season. That is not important other than to suggest that in future some scouting of players might get expanded. Now in India the best athletes go to their top sports of course but who knows there may be new players over the years from leagues such as this.
