Re: The XFL makes several staff hires

When the XFL announces these hires on Twitter, I expect the responses to be "TEAM NAMES!" for a lot of them.

Re: Question about the XFL’s branding department

Thank you Mike for the response. That’s cool that you reached out to the original designer of the XFL’s logos back in 2001. I am a huge wrestling fan, so I am not so sure how I would feel about the WWE’s branding department doing the XFL logos. The wrestlers themselves for the most part, do have pr...

Re: Who do you want to see ABC, Fox and ESPN hire to do XFL games?

Who does the Cowboy games and college football games in Dallas? 105.3 does Cowboys games and various stations do college football games. No I mean.... The actual broadcasters who do the games on radio. Brad Sham and Babe Laufenberg have done Cowboys games since 2007. The college games have their ow...

Re: Who do you want to see ABC, Fox and ESPN hire to do XFL games?

In a recent press scrum that Oliver Luck had at the Seattle Showcase. He mentioned that the league is in talks with national syndicators. So I think some form of radio type coverage will be in play. I like your idea. On the local side, you definitely want people, with whom the audience has familiar...

Re: Updated XFL Team Staffs

That’s one of the problem spots for the XFL heading into their season. It’s easier to fill staffs in the spring/summer once college and NFL teams are done filling theirs. The hard part will come in keeping staffs together, during the college and NFL coaching carousel in late December/January. It ma...

Re: Who do you want to see ABC, Fox and ESPN hire to do XFL games?

This is probably more wishful thinking than serious idea, but beloved Washington Wizards play by play man Steve Buckhantz was unceremoniously (and inexplicably) forced out after 22 seasons. Getting him involved in some form would be an easy way to score some goodwill with fans and media in the D.C....

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

If you want someone who is not controversial and who can invest in the league when McMahon can't and who also has ties to Vince McMahon........well there's a Hollywood actor named Dwayne Johnson who once worked for Vince McMahon. He's not a billionaire, but Vince loves the guy (for obvious reasons).

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

I can see the XFL burning through Vince's money a lot faster than what they're projecting. I think the money in the bank now gets him through this season...... but going forward..... he'll need investors. I think Mr. Trump should be needing something to do in a year or so. In the meantime......ther...

Re: Updated XFL Team Staffs

Congratulations to him. This is one thing that I mentioned in my “The challenges that await the XFL” article in late June. The XFL has no clauses in their coaching contracts that prevent their coaches from leaving for other opportunities. This will become crucial when hiring season takes place in l...

Re: Updated XFL Team Staffs

I don't know anything about Crocker, but Special Teams are going to be so different in the XFL than anywhere else that experience is probably less useful than usual. Seems like a great spot for a smart young coach, especially one that has been through a coaching fellowship and dabbled in refereeing...
