Always wondered what happens outwith the NFL, its quite a strange concept to me, to have a closed shop with no promotion or relegation. I guess there must be lower leagues at different levels. I did see this thing on TV which was on a smaller pitch, indoor league

There was a European league for some years funded by the NFL which was to grow the game and help with a 2nd tier recruitment process but once that was stopped a lack of players especially in some specialist positions may be needed,as it looks like they may have an extra game in the regular season .
Vince McMahon owner of WWE tried the XFL before as a rival to NFL ,this one is with the backing of the NFL.

I recall Gavin Hastings playing for the Scottish Claymores at the end of his career but they were forced to disband the league as it was haemorrhaging cash.

I remember there was a lingerie league-doubt they are still getting away with that in this day in age?

XFL was originally launched by Vince McMahon but only lasted a year. Unsurprisingly with stunts like this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofpLTH2iI-U
