Re: Question about the XFL’s branding department

Call me crazy, but I just thought of this: Would've been cool to have had the league reveal the team names/logos at the San Diego Comic-Con. Seems it's where a lot of entertainment properties make big reveals and I don't think other sports have a real presence there. Just being there would firmly e...

Re: Should the XFL use the WWE to promote their league?

The original XFL was all over WWE TV. It helped get the word out and draw in wrestling fans to games but everyone knows how the perception of a WWE styled football product hurt the league's credibility in their first run. The current XFL wants to appeal to families rather than the "cool crowd". So ...

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

I get that. I remember Luck doing interviews after he was named CEO. In every interview last summer. He said that the league would be announcing their eight cities in the fall. People expected September. Nothing came. Then October. Nothing came. Then November and nothing came. I remember reading on...

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

I can see the XFL burning through Vince's money a lot faster than what they're projecting. I think the money in the bank now gets him through this season...... but going forward..... he'll need investors. I think Mr. Trump should be needing something to do in a year or so. In the meantime......ther...

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

The team names, logos and colors will all be released when they are ready. Just like every other aspect thus far in the XFL's league building process. There's no getting around the NFL season, when it comes to the XFL making announcements or news. Here's a list of XFL news that will happen during t...

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

Even if the league has decided on all eight names. I don’t think that they have the logos and colors all set yet. That’s probably what’s holding up the process. That and all the legal stuff but I really think it’s the former. They don't really need to release the logos and colors at the same time. ...

I wouldn’t rule out some sort of Rod Smart sighting at some point during season one.
If they can find him :mrgreen:

But seriously... I did notice they still own the "He Hate Me" trademark.

Re: XFL Show posts Mock XFL TV Schedule

The AAF’s poor attendance can be attributed to poor marketing and a poor selection of markets. San Antonio did great. Orlando and San Diego were ok. Everyone else underperformed. I can understand Birmingham’s weather issue for two games but it doesn’t cover up for the rest of the league. Memphis ha...

Re: XFL Show posts Mock XFL TV Schedule

AAF average attendance was brought down by a couple of teams primarily. Salt Lake, Arizona, and Atlanta only topped 11,750 people in attendance once, and that was only 11,751 fans. It was an eight-team league! It's not a mitigating factor that three of your markets, including the two biggest, were ...

Re: XFL Show posts Mock XFL TV Schedule

XFLinSTL makes a good point: you want the games you expect to be rivalries to be a couple of weeks into the season since they're going to be the ones that draw a higher relative audience. For week 1, when everyone's probably going to already be watching, you might want the most humdrum matchup you c...
