139: Fanchise – The First Fan Run Pro Football Franchise

By February 29, 2016June 18th, 2018No Comments


Former NFL safety Ray Austin joins Rob Cressy to talk about Fanchise, the first fan run pro football franchise where Ray is Co-Founder and Director of Sports. You read that correctly, a football team run entirely by the fans.

Ray and I talk more in depth about what Fanchise is, how the fans get to pick the location of the team, the logo, and even the plays, and how you can get involved. I loved this idea from the second I heard about it which is why I wanted to have Ray on the show.
