Re: Question about the XFL’s branding department

I can confirm that they were exploring external (that is, non-WWE) options. I assume that's the direction they've gone, but I don't know that for sure.

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

I think these two points hit the nail on the head: I like smart football analysts who are fully invested in the concept of another pro football league. Baldinger was crushed when NFL Europe folded. He was heart broken. I would want someone like him covering or doing the games. Rather than just someo...

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

The longer the XFL goes without names, the more money they lose. That's OK. If you're the AAF or the AAFL, maybe you need to push out merchandise ASAP so you can get enough of a cash flow to stage Week 1. The XFL is not in that situation. The XFL left a lot of money on the table by putting on these...

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.

Re: St Louis Summer Showcase

He played such a large off the field role in the AAF that I'm sure there's a lot to be learned for both sides in a face to face.
