Re: Houston Oiler Type Team Names

Your Baltimore comparison is good. Still, I wonder if the XFL will want anything close to the NFL? We will see in due time.

Re: Submit Your Choices for XFL Team Names

We did the same type of survey in 2000, and we had fun with it. In the end, the XFL pretty much chose the names they wanted, but it was a great way for the fans to kill time while they waited.

Re: Upcoming Team Names

We should be ready for the team names, logos and colors to be released soon. They may start to leak out before the official release. This is what occurred in XFL version 1.

Re: Conversation died here... What's up next?

I believe the XFL will hire front-office staff next. Maybe hire some big names and make a splash.

Re: Syracuse University Student lobbies for an XFL team. Will this work?

The amount of grassroots lobbying occurring right now is remarkable. I’m sure the XFL will take notice, but there must be other factors that will be considered.

Lobbying can’t hurt, but it may not help.

Syracuse University Student lobbies for an XFL team. Will this work?

There is an interesting article describing how a Syracuse University student is lobbying for the XFL to put a team in Syracuse. http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2018/02/syracuse_freshman_campaigns_to_bring_xfl_football_team_to_the_carrier_dome.html My question is: will this work? Do you think ...

Re: What will the "X" stand for this time?

I wonder what will happen when they create a more detailed marketing plan for the league. Will the "X" still stand for "Xtra"?

You might recall in XFL 1.0, the X originally stood for "Extreme", but later it was changed to say that the X didn't stand for anything.
