Re: Oliver Luck Radio Interview Today

Thanks XFL fan for staying on top of this. I can’t tell you how many Oliver Luck interviews, I have listened to in the last few months. I pretty much knows some of his recycled answers right now like Crisp Football etc I would suggest checking out The Schooled Podcast with John Clayton. I used a bit...

Steve Spurrier reveals that The AAF’s initial investor bailed on the league

XFL fan posted this in another thread and I copied this from Reddit. I think that this is a big story that shouldn’t be buried deep in another thread. It sheds light on the debate over the Dundon story. “This is from The Orlando Sentinel. Tom Bianchi interviewed Steve Spurrier. The old ball coach re...

Re: NHL Owner Rescues The AAF With Much Needed Cash

Spurrier: Original investor "bailed out." https://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/open-mike/os-sp-spurrier-aaf-carolina-hurricanes-20190220-story.html Thanks for posting this. Clear evidence that the league’s original investor bailed and Tom Dundon made the save. This whole Dundon deal is being pain...

Re: NHL Owner Rescues The AAF With Much Needed Cash

The AAf apparently lied to Darren Rovell about the Dundon investment on Saturday. https://mobile.twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/1097934182506872833 First they're not releasing attendance numbers, then they start "tweaking" them, then they lie to reporters. Glad that the league is building credibil...

Re: Good Article On The XFL To Share With Any Of Its Doubters

Definitely Bay Area. I think they'd love to go to Chicago, but the stadium situation is untenable, IMO. A reminder of the other domains the XFL registered back in November: Atlanta Austin Chicago Cleveland Detroit Kansas City Minnesota Nashville Orlando Philadelphia Phoenix Pittsburgh San Francisco...

Re: NHL Owner Rescues The AAF With Much Needed Cash

The truth is if you are rooting for The XFL over the AAF. This is not great news. Without this last second save, the AAF was going to die a miserable can’t even finish our first season death. I am not saying that Dundon being the AAF’s Owner completely saves them indefinitely but it’s a reprieve fo...

Re: Pep Hamilton To XFL DC Press Conference On Thursday!

This is a hire that I really like. It checks off all the marks. Hamilton has local DC ties. He has an experienced offensive background. Has recent experience in college and the pros. This helps with his his knowledge of nfl players and college players that he has recruited and coached against. It’s ...
