Re: The XFL teases team logos on social media

I can't believe all the league was aiming to do was to tease hard-core fans and telling them to "buckle up." There is nothing to gain by doing that. Hard-core fans are already "buckled up." In fact, most of them are saying, "are we there yet?" I am sure the XFL did this because they want to begin to...

Re: The XFL teases team logos on social media

Oh yeah... my guess is Houston Vipers for the snake logo and the "D" is part of the logo for the "DC" team. Just guesses. :D

Re: The XFL teases team logos on social media

When the AAF did it, they teased in batches. Does this mean we are in for a bunch more teaser logos in the next week, leading up to teases of all eight logos? If so, this could be painful. More importantly, today’s teaser did not resonate with any mainstream media outlets. The only places reporting ...

Re: Team names to be announced 8/21 per June Jones

It's good news, but not official in any way. Hopefully an official word on the team name reveal will be coming soon.

Re: Team Names Coming when?

At this point we have no idea until they announce the date. I don't feel like speculating anymore lol. Yes, anyone who dared to speculate has been proven wrong. It is time to wait now. Could be next week, and could be next month. Yes, I know... the longer they wait, the less time they'll have for m...

XFL team names could go far in proving this is a different league than 2001

I think Mike Mitchell has made this point more than once, but I wanted to say it again. The XFL has a golden opportunity to prove they are a different league than 2001, by choosing "respectable" names for their teams. Basically, the goal would be for people to say, "Wow! That's nothing like the old ...

It must be real. A real journalist wouldn't publish a rumor unless it was corroborated.
I see what you did there.

Re: Team Names Coming Next Week?

They could be coming next week... or maybe not. Previously, the league said they were coming in March, April and July to name a few. The only source that matters is the league itself. When they are ready, they will make an announcement. Then we will all know. "The waiting is the hardest part" - Tom ...

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

I still don't think they should have any cross-over promotions that include the WWE. It might be tempting, but I think they XFL should avoid it.

Re: The XFL makes several staff hires

If you look at the "Careers" section of the XFL web site, they are hiring a helluva lot of people. If anyone still doesn't think they're serious about this thing, they should take a look.
