Re: Fans will be back in the stands

Nobody cares about Covid-19 anymore. The protests are proof of that. Well, Fauci and a few germaphobic epidemiologists still care, that much is certain. But the vast majority of people who were pushing this in April and early May have moved on—including Andrew Cuomo (and New York is well on its way...

Re: Disney/Fox inquired about XFL

the way things are falling a part in this country, it's best that the XFL not return. Yeah, I live 20 miles west of Chicago. The city is being destroyed. I’ve been listening to the police radio all night. It’s ridiculous. On the plus side, clearly these large mass gatherings of people suggest that ...

Re: Disney/Fox inquired about XFL

Well, FOX would be the entity that would be best to buy and support the league in my opinion. I hope Vince would at least consider holding onto a minority stake in the XFL even if it’s just 5%. Just so he could at the minimum be a part of its success down the road.

Re: Sports Business Journal review of XFL's final days

Weren’t the Vipers getting that stadium rent free? If Tampa Bay were to extend that offer, would they really move? I do agree Orlando is a better city though. And Dallas did have a respectable fan base, so I don’t know how wise it would me to move the team. I do support moving the Wildcats to SD, bu...

I don’t have much to add other than that I’m holding out hope!

Re: CFL could fold - looks for Gov bailout

Speaking of Canada - the push back is growing there too... And resistance is going to grow... There is a minor "pushback" movement here in Canada, and it mostly comes from watching and mimicking the movement in the United States. Most Canadians see Covid as a real threat and we've been fighting it ...

Re: OL, Week 6, VM and the XFL bankruptcy

Sweden IS basically following the herd immunity approach. people under 30 have VIRTUAL no risk sans a medical condition - look at the numbers in Mass. for example... And that's reported cases which NY's antibody testings says is likely 10 times higher (LA and Santa Clara studies even higher) tests....

Re: OL, Week 6, VM and the XFL bankruptcy

I don’t think we’ll be switching to “herd immunity” by June 1st. But, I do think we will switch to something closer to that of Sweden nonetheless. Vince doesn’t want to cancel for anything. I recall at the time hoping for just one more week of play so the XFL could be the only show in town, just lik...

Re: How's everyone doing?

Honestly? I’m frustrated with the whole thing. I’m gonna get a lot of hate on here for what I’m about to say. The virus is bad, precautions needed to be taken, including the shutting down of large gatherings. But, most other things should be allowed outside of major cities. This virus was never goin...
