Team names to be announced 8/21 per June Jones

Post by Shooter McGav1n » Wed Aug 14, 2019 1:08 pm

According to XFL Houston head coach and GM June Jones, plans are to announce team names next Wednesday August 21. He also mentions the draft will be held October 15-16. Good information, let’s see if this info holds up.

Please hold up! This would be AMAZING! Not getting my hopes up though. Heather said the names would come in July and it didn't happen so I need to see an official league announcement before I believe anything. Fingers crossed...

I just spoke with someone at the league on this, and they are saying it's not true. I guess we'll know soon enough.

I just spoke to someone in the league and they are denying this date. Interestingly enough, the interview is now down minutes after I spoke to them on it...

It's good news, but not official in any way. Hopefully an official word on the team name reveal will be coming soon.

See, this is why I didn't get my hopes up. Thanks for getting the inside scoop.

Well, it didn’t take long to shoot this one down. I do think it’s significant though because Jones was likely given that as a tentative date by someone with knowledge of the situation, I don’t think he just pulled the date out of the air. So it looks like we’re back to “soon”.

I was listening to it and got half way... was about to continue but now it's no longer available.
