“I think [Donald Trump] became a Pied Piper. He spun a web of stories to the rest of the owners that all this could be accomplished, and it could be accomplished if you followed what he believed in and the people that he knew and his ability to get to people who we couldn’t get in order to raise the level of income from the networks, to get the interest of Pete Rozelle and the rest of the National Football League in terms of the accommodation of a few teams. And away he’d go being the savior of what was the United States Football League.”

— Chet Simmons, Commissioner, USFL
