Re: Spurrier signals interest in coaching if XFL returns

Spurrier would be an upgrade over Trestman, for sure. As for the Orlando Apollos trademark... the USPTO says the Orlando Apollos trademark is dead (abandoned), meaning the new owners (or anyone else) could easily reclaim it. The Apollos equipment was purchased by Jerry Kurz; Major League Football c...

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: Spurrier signals interest in coaching if XFL returns

agree, and I'd also add that the Wildcats should be moved to San Diego. It'd be great to get the fleet back as well. Not likely unless there is expansion or NFL gets involved in ownership. REASON? LA is 5 times as big a TV market - and the reason the XFL has a post bankruptcy chance is TV ratings w...

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. I listened to part of Mike Mitche...

Re: Spurrier signals interest in coaching if XFL returns

Did the XFL ever acquire the names/logos from the AAF? I was just curious if it was possible to resurrect the Apollos in Orlando with Spurrier? Would be interesting getting an Orlando team back in it with him as the coach. I'm not sure who bought those rights (if anyone) but I'm sure their best cha...

Spurrier signals interest in coaching if XFL returns

Get your popcorn, and Spurrier would be perfect for Orlando after AAF https://twitter.com/JoshTheAthletic/status/1266390322835329027 >>Josh Kendall @JoshTheAthletic Spoke with Steve Spurrier this week for a June story that I'll think you'll like.

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

IMO... If no credible buyer steps up - I think VM will step in as a "white knight" buyer. Fans will be fine with that - but a third party buyer may have better luck pulling back in all the laid off front office, back office, team coaches and trainers etc... I, too, think that Vince is likely to not...

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

Let me get this straight - creditors are going to chase away their best chance of getting paid (under a new contract) by hounding Vince M out of the bidding so there may be no XFL? Are people stupid? Its Chapter 11, its a reorg with debt clearing. - 3 options 1) he buys back and brings back most peo...

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

2021 is very likely off the table even if the league comes back. Remember, he would have to basically start from (almost) scratch again. New staff, coaches, players, vendors etc. But hey, maybe we can hold out hope for 2022!! 2021 is not off the table - they are looking into the leases already at 3...
