In other FGL news…
The Florida GRID League just announced that teams can be formatted with past pro athletes. The rule states that “each team may sign no more than two past pros. A “past pro” is defined as a player that was signed to an NPGL team, regardless of play on the GRID.” The GRID league wanted to highlight that though this may change the competitive dynamic, the GRID is still a specialist sport that appeals to a wide range of athletes.
