Re: So either ESPN is out.............

LA and New York held the league down, no one will argue that, but it's totally counterproductive to make that point when you work for the very corp that has dictated that there be teams in both (as ESPN did with the Arena League in the early years, ABC even went a step further with Chicago in the US...

Re: So either ESPN is out.............

I didn't say outright hit piece I said semi-hit piece, when you start rattling off the normal regurgitated garbage about ratings and attendance and basically, like Peter King a month or so back, dismissed COVID what would you call it? And if his problem was with keeping teams in New York and LA mayb...

So either ESPN is out.............

https://www.espn.com/xfl/story/_/id/29297846 Or Kevin Seifert is out of a job (there have been more layoffs at ESPN the last two years than in WWE). Seriously, why effectively republish what amounts to a two-month old article/semi-hit piece if you're among the rumored bidders? I guess the war's bac...

Re: June Jones would return to XFL - Apparently treated well on way out...

Pep won't be back for sure, he'll be coaching Tyrod Taylor/Justin Herbert/Easton Stick this year

If Easton doesn't, um, stick the new ownership's gotta find a way to get him just on name alone (also winningest QB in FCS history)

Re: Spurrier signals interest in coaching if XFL returns

This is all provided of course there's an America that they can come back to. A few weak mayors/governors are getting called out. The rads will be separated from legit people that are voicing their concerns. This did prove one thing wuhan virus hysteria over blown (at least for under 50's) . Market...

Re: Is Vince McMahon trying to covertly buy his own bankrupt XFL?

I hope Hayes wouldn't be like that, otherwise I might have to go back and push the possibility that Chris Warren (who was about as much of a punt returner as Earl Thomas is) called fair catch right before JH blew him up before the dramatic last series in the Derrick Thomas seven-sack game.

Re: Is Vince McMahon trying to covertly buy his own bankrupt XFL?

Vince will not be in on the bidding for buying the XFL out of bankruptcy. Of course there have been snarks out there accusing him of shuttering it just so he could acquire and relaunch it for pennies on the dollar. So Vince is pulling out. But there will be bidders..... ABC/ESPN/Disney would be the...

Re: Is Vince McMahon trying to covertly buy his own bankrupt XFL?

Um how do you think they had a "crowd" on RAW? (Which of course the AEW marks are taking credit for and is totally bordering on Jesse Ventura Story-style parody) Besides they had an employee test positive at the Wrestlemania taping. Maybe he's just guessing (and of a course the unnamed XFL player w...

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/05/26/vince-mcmahon-says-hes-not-a-bidder-to-buy-xfl/ Of course he said similar in Oct 2000 when WCW was for sale (also took a perfect ****storm for that to happen). This could also be to shut all the Meltzers and other whiny columnists up (well, the attem...
