The list includes a few interesting names including Bobby Boswell, Santino Quaranta, Dasan Robinson, Peter Lowry, Arturo Alvarez, Andy Williams, Bobby Convey, Nate Jaqua, and John Thorrington.

Well, now it seems that a full blown channel is something that Garber and the league are at least entertaining at some point according to this article.
