Re: Mike Shanahan

I think this is one market where the XFL is going to really struggle. The LA Chargers were abysmal at Stub Hub. The league is better off putting a team in Sacramento or Portland over LA. They pretty much had to have a team in LA for broadcasting purposes. As long as they can deliver halfway decent ...

Re: NHL Owner Rescues The AAF With Much Needed Cash

Ebersol with more excuses: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/02/19/ebersol-aaf-cash-infusion-from-dundon-was-about-opportunity-not-urgency/ So you basically sell your league out of opportunity? You didn't need money even though you couldn't pay your players after 2 weeks? Once again I'm no...

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

The XFL will pay its players more than the Alliance. The XFL is offering is marquee – or top-tier – players “upwards of $300,000 a year”, according to Luck. This compares to the $250,000 Alliance players will earn over three seasons. This is why I don't understand why some people argue "if you're a...

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

In regards to expansion, the league is looking to expand to 10 teams by 2022. According to Luck, more than 30 cities applied to become the inaugural eight cities. So who we got? Thinking Philly is near the top of the list, given how much they pushed for a team. Who else? I have some doubts about Ch...

Re: AAF Update Thread

Here's what the Express stadium looks like tonight: DzkaBE_XQAAOs5e.jpeg Haven't watched much action today but caught a few plays of the Memphis game on the app. The (lack of) fans was one of the first things I noticed. I know it's a big stadium, I know attendance isn't everything, but that's embar...

Re: XFL Board Team Name Survey Results

Outlaws would be great. Hitmen, as cool as it was, is not coming back. I like Avengers but am less than enthusiastic about adopting the name of a failed Arena team. Still think Steelheads is the absolute perfect name for Seattle. Regionally it makes sense and it just sounds badass. Do the Titans/NFL...

Re: Seattle Team Name Selected

On the flip side, I think a name that referenced things like that in a respectful way would be applauded. Like "Hotshots" in the AAF. Something like that would've been perfect for an LA team.

Re: Random Notes And Thoughts On The XFL

Here's a poll from the Star-Telegram on what people want the XFL Dallas team name to be. Not as extensive as the board's poll, but with over 100 votes it could be a very nice estimate to what the results to the XFLBoard.com poll on team names will be for Dallas. https://www.star-telegram.com/sports...

Re: Los Angeles Team Names

Please no Quakes, naturally disasters, etc!!! Would like the throwback to the Xtreme, if only to provide some built in history. I'm all in on area representative animals or tribes. My vote is for the Condors (California specifically). In the logo I'd like for them to include a nod to the old XFL by...

Re: Rumors Going Around That The AAF Is Looking For 4 Expansion Teams Next Year

https://mobile.twitter.com/AAFfanNetwork/status/1094717416028979200?s=19 Take it with a grain of salt for now, but if the AAF does this it'll be a big mistake. One of the reasons the USFL failed was rapid expansion. Adding 4 teams would dilute their product more. Maybe the AAF should be more worrie...
