GAMBLERS TRIVIA

--
With the number of USFL teams reduced from 18 to 14 for the 1985 season, so many veteran players were made available that the need for a territorial draft was questioned by some within USFL circles.
--
The draft was conducted nevertheless, however, with each team entitled to select up to 25 players from its territorial schools list.
--
The Gamblers were to pay a $6 million franchise fee to the USFL, due in 4 installments over the course of a three year period.
--
The first was for $2.5 million, and was due by July 12, 1983.  The second was for $1 million and was due by June 1, 1984.
--
The third and fourth were for $1.2 and $1.3 million, respectively, and were due on June 1, 1985 and 1986.  It isn't public knowledge if these payments were ever made.
