Concept Leagues has got the concept

That "D" in Concept League's "Dallas Toros" design is surprisingly close to one of the teasers.

XFL should hire Johnny Manziel

I believe the league should take a chance on Johnny Manziel and let him play in Houston under June Jones. The fans would love it, and hopefully he would get a real chance to show off his talents. If they are worried about his past, give him a contract like the CFL did, with certain stipulations, so ...

More high-powered hires for the XFL including NBC Sports Veteran Len Mead

He will manage the day-to-day relationships with the XFL’s broadcast partners FOX Sports and ABC/ESPN as well as exploring potential new...

Re: Team Names Coming Next Week?

I guess the original rumor news article that started this thread has been proven to be a dud. Big surprise. Wasn't it "breaking news?" :D

Re: Team Names Coming Next Week?

It must be real. A real journalist wouldn't publish a rumor unless it was corroborated.

Records show defunct AAF team's unpaid debts, inflated attendance

https://dailymemphian.com/article/4765/Memphis-Express-owes-city-nearly-150000 Based on documents supplied by the city of Memphis, the actual number of tickets sold for Express games lined up with what the eye told you, rather than announced attendance. This is something everyone suspected all along...

Re: Jonathan Hayes to be named XFL St. Louis Head Coach/GM?

Might be a B.S. rumor. Maybe he's being hired as an assistant coach, and the rumor machine got it wrong?

The NFL won't ever see the XFL as a "developmental" league, but I'm sure they will offer contracts to XFL players who show they are ready for the big sh...

Re: New York Head Coach and President - Tuesday April 16

St. Louis should already have a Head Coach in place. Hopefully they get this done in the next week or so, just so they can catch up to the other teams that have coaching staff in place.
