The multi million football contract from trump in 1984 has kept him very loyal. I would not vote for him as president.

1SG Mark Gomez - Trump did not give him a football contract, Trump was obligated to pay him and honor the contract when he bought the team - and the USFL was not "ruined" by Trump, what ruined that league was the anti trust lawsuit filed against the NFL, again, an action that predated Trumps involvement with the USFL. Jesus man, do some damn research before making an ass of yourself.

And, by your statement, Herschel Walker is the wrong kind of black man to run for office. Got it.

SSG Robert Perrotto - You got it wrong then. He is a republican. I will not vote for a republican until they produce a candidate who I think will be the best for the country. Jesus man do some research before you make an ass out of yourself

Donald Trump, the owner of the Generals, announced today that he had signed Herschel Walker to a new four-year contract that will keep the star running back with the team through the 1989 season.

1SG Mark Gomez - the league folded a year later, and he signed with the Cowboy's. Once the league folded, all the contracts of the players became null and void. as the teams and the league were no longer a viable financial entity. So, again, the "Millions" from a contract that did not last more then 5 months, is quite wrong. Your claim that Trump ruined that league is also quite wrong.

SSG Robert Perrotto - So you can't admit you were factually incorrect when you stated "Trump did not give him a football contract". You think HW walked away with zero dollars? Trump said the sum involved was ''comparable'' to those in two other multimillion-dollar contracts that players have signed with United States Football League teams in the last week: the $6 million that the New Orleans Breakers are reported to be paying Marcus Dupree for five years, and the $5.5 million that is estimated to be the present value of the four- year contract that will give Steve Young of the Los Angeles Express more than $40 million over the next 43 years. Trump said today that ''if I had my choice between Herschel's contract and Steve Young's contract, I'd personally take Herschel's contract.'' And Walker said, ''I think my contract is the best contract in the U.S.F.L. and the National Football League.''

Steve Young received 4 million of his contract up front.

So the millions herschel received is there bud. It is ok to be wrong every now and then

Your OPINION that trump didn't ruin the league is also quite wrong.
