Re: How much does AAF attendance matter?

My guess is attendance will start to matter soon. They may have the money in place to fund the league at a loss, but they will eventually look at the attendance and make some important choices. Maybe move a franchise or two?

Re: NHL Owner Rescues The AAF With Much Needed Cash

The AAF story is fascinating, even though I don't wish the league ill-will. I can't believe they almost missed a payroll. Doing so would have destroyed the league. As it is, even coming close to missing payroll is enough to make people nervous toward supporting the league. My thought is Dunden is in...

Re: XFL Board Team Name Survey Results

They can try to hide their registrations. Tricky work, because the trademark has to be registered to the owner. I'm not a lawyer, but I assume a good lawyer could do something tricky here. :D

Keeping the team names secret is only part of the process, which includes trademark registration and graphic design, and culminates in a big splashy reveal. Simply, this is how it's done.

There will be leaks, but we won't know the names, logos and colors for sure until the XFL does their reveal.
