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.
New York Knights-Kevin Gilbride
Washington Guardians-Pep Hamilton
Tampa Bay Sharks-Marc Trestman
St. Louis Archers-Jonathan Hayes

Seattle Orcas-Jim Zorn
LA Sabercats-Jack Del Rio
Houston Generals-Jeff Fisher
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%
New York Knights-Kevin Gilbride
Washington Guardians-Pep Hamilton
Tampa Bay Sharks-Marc Trestman
St. Louis Archers-Jonathan Hayes

Seattle Orcas-Jim Zorn
LA Sabercats-Jack Del Rio
Houston Generals-Jeff Fisher
Dallas Stampede-Bob Stoops

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.

Not sure if this is thread worthy yet, but on the XFL2k pre-show of the Jim Zorn announcement it was mentioned that mid next week we should get another head coach announcement. Lines up with what Oliver Luck said about 1 a week, but we'll see:

Tidbit on coaching staffs:
Zorn said he can hire 10 assistant coaches and while he said the league deadline for that will be June or July, he said he hopes to make the hires sooner.

“I’ve been working on this for a while, so there is some direction,” he said. “It’s going to be hard to get the correct chemistry and the correct 10.”

Sounds like guessing or speculation, more than actual reporting. It’s safe to assume that there will be another coach hire in the coming week.

Regardless, all XFL fans should support every site that is dedicated to the league. It’s cool that there a few podcasts and websites promoting and following the league.
