Franchise Player 1 is the first part of Grifball: Franchise Player
Stu Stuman of UNSN brings up the topic of disgraced player and current prisoner inmate XT. Stuman then begins his interview with the Commissioner. Stuman asks the Commissioner about XT, who has been paid a record-breaking salary, going to jail for a second time and missing ten games of the current season. The Commissioner points out that XT has been paroled this morning. Stuman then asks the Commissioner about what he is going to do now that XT's team dropped him for "morality reasons". The Commissioner says he already aligned up XT to play for Team Slipspace.
Meanwhile, Flynt and Coach are dismayed by the announcement they see on the news. The Commissioner then decides to call Slipspace and tell them the news on the air. When phone rings, both Flynt and Coach say to not answer it, but Tank does so anyway.
- The side screens of the UNSN newsroom shows clips from the Grifball: Expansion Trailer, Grifball: Rules of the Game, and Chapter 1 of Red vs. Blue: Revelation.
