Re: AAF Teams Names

I'm not impressed with these choices but like parts of most. Here are my rankings based on name,logo, and video: Apollos - I like the logo. I would like to see a mirror image for the other side of the helmet. I would rather the name be something like the Arrows (as in Apollos Arrows). Iron - I like...

Re: AAF Rosters-QB's

That is a little over $80,000 per year. I think the XFL's minimum is $75,000/year with the door open to negotiate much higher for players with more notoriety. I think this is fine. The available talent will be comparable even if the AAF is beating Vince's minimum about by 5 grand or so. He will allo...

Re: AAF Teams Names

I think the XFL will do better ;) I think the XFL will do better as well because they will go for a healthy mix a large markets and medium markets. I do not like Fleet, Legends, or Hotshots, and Apollos is a downright awful name. The AAF has screwed up right out of the gate. I wonder if they are ge...

XFL Sends Letter to Agents Warning About Signing Other Contracts

As soon as I saw that the AAF was giving players 3 year contracts, I knew that was designed to undermine the XFL. The XFL is indicating they will have better benefit packages. Also, the AAF probably won't even operate for 3 years, but if they were to "suspend" league operations (before admitting the...

Re: XFL Website Updated! Shop Page Added!

I am only interested in custom jerseys if they have a team close to my location.

Re: Stadium Discussion - Large or small Venue

The perception of the first XFL was poor and not helped by how badly things looked on tv. Except SF nobody averaged over 30K and 2 teams had less than 20K on average. I think playing in smaller venues would be better and create more demand. there is no doubt to me these teams can draw 30-40K, but i...

Re: Rule Changes: What Do You Think?

I think they should remove the intentional grounding penalty. That penalty is not always called consistently because it depends on the referees gauging whether or not the quarterback was inside or outside the pocket and whether or not there was a receiver in the area. Referees often judge it incorre...

I still have a bunch of Topps XFL football cards. I have no intention of parting with them.

Re: Which Cities Will Be Left For The XFL?

The AAF made a mistake in choosing so many mid-sized media markets. The only top ten media market they put a team in is Atlanta. Phoneix is a "major" U.S. market too, but if you're going to share a market with the NFL, you might as well make it a huge market with a lot of revenue potential. Birmingh...

Re: Vince McMahon expects to spend $500 million on XFL

He needs to be willing to lose money in the early going if there is any chance he could make money off of the XFL down the road. You have to build your brand. The NFL has been around for nearly a hundred years, and it has had that long to build its brand. The fan base will grow the longer the XFL ex...
