Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

https://www.si.com/college/tennessee/football/spring-cfb-season-increasing-likelihood Sounds like the Ivy League may announce as soon as Wednesday they'll be moving fall sports to the spring. If that happens, speculation is some of the larger conferences could follow suit. While this likely won't im...

XFL Bankruptcy Thread

Here's what we know so far based on reporting: -August 7th is the reveal of who won the bidding for the league's assets. There is another procedural hearing on July 13, wit...

IMG_20200624_163749.jpg Now that face masks are being made mandatory, you'll have to wear one.....but why not be the coolest cat and do it XFL style?
