1986 USFL Article With Quotes From Walker, Flutie, And Kelly

It is always interesting to go back in time and read the actual quotes and sentiments of the people involved as events were happening. A few days after the 1986 anti-trust suit judgement between the NFL and USFL resulted in the $1 ($3) verdict, Sports Illustrated talked with many of the USFL personnel in an article. It includes quotes from Herschel Walker, Doug Flutie, and Jim Kelly: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1065134/1/index.htm

Of interest are Jim Kelly’s quotes about not wanting to play in Buffalo and how he wanted his top 3 receivers from the Houston Gamblers to join him in Buffalo if he had to play there. He even wanted Mouse Davis as offensive coordinator!
