Re: Expansion 2021?

The big question mark here are the television contracts. If they suddenly have a fifth broadcast every week, does that mean the XFL can negotiate a separate deal? Or would FOX and ABC be able to pick up the extra game under the current terms? If it's the former, expansion makes sense if the XFL can ...

Re: June Jones hired as XFL Houston head coach

Even with the acquittal, I don't think Oakman gets a shot. The XFL doesn't want the word "rape" or "domestic violence" to appear in the same paragraph as "XFL," even if it's proceeded by the words "acquitted of." If the woman had recanted, that might be a different story, but this is the type of thi...

Re: Summer Showcase Locations & Full Details

Super interesting news from PFT: 5-10 current college players will be at each combine. A handful of current college players will be there as well, and Luck said those players will be allowed to show the XFL what they can do this summer, and then potentially sign with the XFL after their college seas...

Re: Ranking The XFL’s Eight Head Coaches

That NJ.com article had the three rookie head coaches (and, awkwardly, the three black coaches) ranked 6, 7, and 8. People are drawn to who they know, which is understandable if lazy. The other factor is whether these lists are taking marketability into account; for example, that raises Zorn's stock...

Re: Ranking The XFL’s Eight Head Coaches

"Never really understood why the energetic Zorn did not get a second head coaching opportunity in the NFL."

Forget a head coaching opportunity, Zorn never even got a coordinator job after his time with the Redskins.

Re: The XFL's Week One Schedule

I would think DC and New York's home schedules would be back-loaded with home dates on account of weather. I would also think the teams in MLS stadiums would be front loaded with home games, so who knows where that leaves DC. I would definitely bet on a LA home game in Week 1. I wonder what the time...

Re: June Jones hired as XFL Houston head coach

Watching the press conference now. Do we think the color of Oliver Luck's shirt is a coincidence?

Re: Will the XFL’s big time from the beginning strategy pay off?

Posting about the FFL should be a bannable offense.

There is no "last chance". If the XFL doesn't make it, someone will eventually try again, and then someone will try after them. What's the longest gap we've ever had post-AFL? Eight years, depending on what you care to count?
