Anyone heard anything about team name announcements? Or any leaks?

I haven't heard any word on announcements.

Anyone heard any leaks?
Lover of the game, and looking forward to Spring football. Reporting on the Seattle XFL franchise and the league in general.

Last I heard was that an announcement was supposed to happen early April for team names and mid May for the tv deals

The only thing I've seen about any of the brands was Luck saying he was partial to Columbia Blue for Houston.

I actually think waiting so long on this is a bit foolish.

They could have merchandise (real merchandise, I ain't buying an XFL Seattle shirt) on the shelves already.

I think they planned on doing it soon after revealing all the coaches, which has clearly taken longer than expected.

For comparison, original XFL rolled out team names in August. AAF got to it in September.

Apples and oranges. Those leagues didn’t give themselves two years to work with

Perhaps the delay is ongoing because they’re in negotiations with former AAF coaches who, I don’t know if you’ve heard, have recently entered the open job market 😂

I was just posting it for context, but thanks for breaking that down for us.
