Re: Bleacher Report cites XFL source that Johnny Manziel will eventually sign with the league

I enjoyed watching him in Canada. He still has enough juice left to win at this level, IMO. Won't complain if he ends up in DC. He did a good job in the AAF, considering the limited time that he had to pick up the offense. He was more of a role player. Sharing time with an extremely effective quart...

Re: LA name announcement in July?

Why would Hispanics be upset about that, though? Your question is why are Mexicans and Mexican-Americans not that keen on celebrating Texas winning its independence from Mexico? They're in the state of Texas. That should be a source of pride. No different than the Philadelphia 76ers or San Francisc...

Re: LA name announcement in July?

Remember that the Dynamo had their own Blast/Bolts moment when they wanted to go with Houston 1836. https://orangeintheoven.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/326/files/2014/09/Houston1836.png The choice of Houston 1836 soon became a political issue. It raised a furor among some locals of Hispanic descent, a...

Re: LA name announcement in July?

I don't think that Luck is doing the name branding for the XFL. Obviously, he has a huge say as the CEO, but he's not part of the league's branding and marketing team. The closest thing, I can remember with Luck being involved in branding, was The Houston Dynamo. The energy theme fitting Houston, a...

Re: LA name announcement in July?

Outlaws was a great name in any context. Demons was meant to be "extreme" but still was stuiable. Bolts is cool enough (hell, it's even the Chargers' nickname). The rest of the names were gimmicky, though. Even though I grew to love Xtreme. I definitely want to see the league use respectable names ...

Re: LA name announcement in July?

This is kind-of where I land on it. I'd prefer the names to be more 2001 XFL than traditional sports or college team names (animals, etc.). I don't mean the viciousness or the violence the 2001 team names had (though I think it worked for the branding of the league), but just for the uniqueness tho...

Re: Some interesting Oliver Luck quotes about non showcase invites and Johnny Manziel

Please, please, please televise the draft. The AAF draft was televised, I think there’s a good chance we’ll see the XFL draft on FS2 or maybe one of ESPN’s channels. The AAF draft was only televised because the AAF bought the airtime on CBS Sports Network. If it didn't draw a single viewer, CBSSN w...

Re: LA name announcement in July?

Saw this on reddit. https://www.reddit.com/r/XFLFootball/comments/by0i6i/xfl_la_fan_event_meeting_with_team_president/ Not sure what this would mean for the rest of the league? Might they be planning a slow roll out? Maybe one name a week? Or maybe they plan in doing all of them in July? The date i...

Re: Goal Posts

Are they the new NFL style, all narrow, or old style? Assume for the time being that anything that isn't expressly different from the NFL rules is going to follow NFL rules. I believe Luck said something to that effect in a radio interview. At the very least, they'll resemble college football, whic...
