Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

I think the impatience for the names and logos is very natural. We want the names asap for the following reasons: 1. Identity is important when creating a connection between team and fan. 2. It will be the icing on the XFL cake until the first game at least. It just seems knowing the names brings a...

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

But if our Seattle qb comes down to the result of the Seahawks backup battle .....I want the WINNER. of that battle. Say if it's Lynch......he could either be Russell's backup with the Hawks and make great money while waiting for Russ to get hurt .....OR ......he could play......as a starter .....an...

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

Well the players trying out are a little difficult to really get amped about because we just saw the same guys fail with the AAF whether they were at fault or not. This league needs to sell the public on things other than the actual players .....that means the logos, the names, the game itself with ...

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

Maybe there's a chance the league still doesn't launch at all. When Vince announced this.....and even though his two operations are supposedly belonging to separate entities.....it's still all Vince. And I don't think he forsaw the decline in fortunes for WWE. His tv ratings and attendance figures h...

Re: XFL St. Louis Summer Showcase Rosters

One thing I'm hoping to see this league do is make stars out of guys who otherwise might not be seen. Not so much on well used NFL veterans and castoffs or AAF leftovers although many of them will be present.....and they are needed somewhat ....because of the football experience they bring to make f...

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

According to XFL news hub......it is suggested that the unveilings should happen this week. It's really the last good opportunity to grab the sports news headline before NFL camps start opening and the media turns it's attention to that. I believe they already lost valuble time seeing that they've g...

Re: St Louis Summer Showcase

Even though we know the NFL gets the top tier talent from the big conferences, which is why they don't need a minor league...... there is still plenty left in the cupboard. Those mid major and Div II programs produce great athletes that just don't shine on the national spotlight so much. The XFL.......

Re: XFL Team Name and Helmet Designs posted by Blitzalytics

A possible look at an expansion location:. So ok..... it's been tried, time and again....seven times now I believe.... but it's a football market not in the NFL.......you gotta go there again..... it's Birmingham. A new stadium is being built to replace Legion Field to house UAB football and it woul...

Re: XFL Show posts Mock XFL TV Schedule

I think it would be proper for the new L.A. Xtreme to pay homage to the original champs by having Maddox and company there for the opener and a nice ceremony. A near capacity crowd shouldn't be a problem. I just wish this game will be on Fox rather than ESPN. But if not.....I would at least hope tha...
