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: Updated XFL Coaching Staffs

Not sure about Savage as the CEO/Commissioner of the XFL. Not to say that he wouldn’t be capable of it but Oliver is in a much higher class than Savage, when it comes to running leagues and being in a business administration type role. Very few have Luck’s resume and winning record. Oh no doubt. I ...

Re: XFL will have a Team Nine of players who remain in shape and ready

This is precisely what Tank wrote about in our discussion, about how the media takes a while to pick up on stories, that most followers of the league already know about. Same thing happened with the double forward pass and overtime. This was in relation to how most college football followers, and ev...

Re: LA name announcement in July?

Obviously this is just my take; From the moment Oliver Luck was announced as Commish and CEO I knew that the new XFL would be NOTHING like the old XFL. And I strongly believe you will see zero names that harken back to the old names or even close. Could be wrong. But no way Luck comes on board if X...

Re: Updated XFL Coaching Staffs

Looking at Mike's list, it's surprising how many coaching spots still need to be filled (or publicly announced, anyway). As we're getting into the player evaluation portion of the league, you'd think each team would have its staffs filled by now. Again, maybe they are, but for whatever reason haven...

Re: Current College Player at XFL DC Showcase

Well, players go from big programs to small programs in search of playing time. If a Clemson starter jumps to the XFL, that's a different animal. I agree. There are quite a few big school players that are still undecided, in the transfer portal. There are several that have decided on smaller school...
