Re: Week 4 Attendance

I expect attendance will drop in Tampa this weekend. NY will be lucky to have anybody there at all. The team is a disaster and the weather is projected to be cold. Although I have been reading that McGloin is ruled out so that may excite some fans who have been asking for a new QB. Personally, I do...

Re: Birmingham wants an XFL team

I didn't want to start yet another expansion thread, so I'll piggyback off this one to link to a Q&A The Sporting News did with Oliver Luck: https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/news/xfl-oliver-luck-tv-ratings-quarterback-expansion/iakpqrw7orlv1r3suhwprqaj6 In it, Luck addresses the possibility of e...

Re: AAF

Philly and SF
Alternates
Phoenix and Atlanta

Re: Report: Quinton Flowers requests release from Tampa Bay Vipers

WOW Is this guy burning his chances or what.

Why would an NFL team want a guy that gives up like that?

Maybe Q leaving will end up being addition by subtraction.

Re: Week 4 TV Rating & Predictions

Initial thoughts Broadcast Nets on Saturday: LA at NY - ABC: 1.75mm viewers Colder day, mid to upper 30's in NY area and NE. Early game for LA audience. NY needs a QB move to generate at least some media buzz. Seattle at Stlouis - FOX: 2.00mm viewers The weather in NE will dip in evening, that will...

Re: How bad is "too bad" in LA?

Instead of LA, the league should have started in San Antonio. That's a big TV market (even without adding nearby Austin to the numbers). Also, the AAF team drew well. Speaking of the AAF -- what a disaster that was. It was the equivalent of those films form the 1890s when the first attempts at flig...

I’m confident it also will have a third season, but that...
