An interesting article:

https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/new ... g-for.html

The most recent timeline estimate on the logos/names:
"The league also has the team names, team colors and logos ready to roll out in about mid-March," Luck told the HBJ.
And two TV partners as expected:
In addition to hiring team executives, the league is also finalizing a deal with its two TV partners, Luck said.
Another random thought: When Oliver Luck said the coaches would be hired in 6-8 weeks most of us thought that meant that they would release all the names in a couple months from now. Instead, it looks like 1-2 coaches will be announced per week depending on the circumstances until 6 to 8 weeks later when they are all announced.
The Name Prediction Signatures Are Here!:
New York Knights
Washington Guardians-Pep Hamilton
Tampa Bay Sharks
St. Louis Clydesdales-Jim Haslett

Seattle Orcas-Jim Zorn
LA Sabercats
Houston Generals
Dallas Stampede-Bob Stoops

Here's a poll from the Star-Telegram on what people want the XFL Dallas team name to be. Not as extensive as the board's poll, but with over 100 votes it could be a very nice estimate to what the results to the XFLBoard.com poll on team names will be for Dallas.

Desperados 20%
Gunslingers 16%
Wranglers 15%
Other 13%

Hmm, Gunslingers, despite being as benign as it is, might not pass the "family-friendly" test. Desperados is fine, but a rehash of a failed Arena team. Wranglers is another ok one. Hopefully the league can be a bit more original.

When do you think the XFL will announce their TV deal? This week? Or next? If not this week will a head coach be announced officially this week?
