Re: Neutral site for XFL Championship Game

I think there's no chance of the NFL allowing this league anywhere near their hollowed ground in Canton.....nor have any interest in detracting from their own draft weekend. They should hold it at the team with home field advantage.....MLS has gone to it and look at the results.....Atlanta sold out ...

Re: ESPN & ABC XFL Full Broadcast teams announced

How highly anticipated is it? I hope it's something the coaches and players are ready for.....to play a solid game given the new league, new rules, new gimmicks and the fact they're not playing at least one exhibition before the season and the dire need to make that great first impression. In most b...

Re: AFL shuts down local operations

Competing on a field dominated by the NFL is a daunting task and apparently from what's been seen....nobody had succeeded post merger What if?......Vince were to take his idea indoors and become the new major arena league? Wouldn't that be more fitting to who he is?......by that I mean the biggest d...

Re: BattleHawks uniform leak?

I can live with losing the front logo.....leaving just the side wing and the over the top sword.....that's enough for me.
But on that uniform design I would lose the striped shoulder......ack.

Re: AFL shuts down local operations

I wish somebody would write a book about it......after a soft launch of 4 teams in 1987.....it was barely noticed. It's a wonder it lasted so long.....franchises constantly relocated, folded, brought back, put on hiatus....new teams came in ....they would either relocate or fold. It was crazy. Despi...

Re: BattleHawks uniform leak?

I have a blue "BattleHawks" helmet to show you.....it has the battle wings on the side.....the upside down battle wings across the front exposing the "STL" .....and the sword which runs over the top.

Re: Breaking down the reported XFL player salaries

I actually thought the AAF practice of signing guys to three year 250k deals across the board allowed pretty fair compensation for that level of league.....it's only real criticism was that it really didn't allow them to reel in top QBs......but they still had some..... one's in the NFL.....I believ...

Re: Breaking down the reported XFL player salaries

It's just that Vince tends to undercut his employees.....it goes with his wrestlers too. I just believed with all they had done.....that this was going to be a true next level pro league with a higher profile than what the AAF offered and even what the CFL offers. I would rather see that with partne...

Re: Drafted players declining to play in the XFL

He (Vereen)....said his compensation was going to be somewhere around 27k for the entire season.....that's about half the 55k we heard about.....which is too low to begin with. You're just not gonna get players to come for that. Is there a lowest tier we don't know about? Is it team 9?
