Re: Fans will be back in the stands

This will also be a terrific time for a spring football league to begin (again) if the right buyer(s) purchase the XFL. On the surface, this doesn't seem right. But when you think about it, a centralized league with no travel could be very beneficial to a startup league. It costs a lot less money t...

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: Sports Business Journal review of XFL's final days

I don’t know, it all went down kinda weird. I really haven’t read anything from O Luck or the coaches (who seemingly are getting a raw deal) post firing. You’d think they’d be more vocal. Something to this degree would ruin any connection in the future with quality coaches, or commissioners ..or wa...

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

The thing about Pollack calling STL & Seattle is very intriguing. I don't want to get my hopes up, but I would do literally anything to get this league back and I hope Vince still has plans for the XFL.

Re: CFL could fold - looks for Gov bailout

I don't see the league folding, but if it did it would be catastrophic for football as a whole. If a player doesn't make the NFL out of college and there is no CFL or any other outdoor football league, that player is essentially screwed. Not to mention coaches, staff, etc. that would not have anywhe...

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

Vince, like everybody else....just got dropkicked by this....(and maybe a stone cold stunner as well)....realizing that he'll never gain that paying tv deal after this thing hit, and knowing that he'll never be profitable anytime in the near future ....there really wasn't a choice was there? It wou...

Re: How's everyone doing?

Still very sad. I know it sucks a lot for other fanbases too, but damn it really stings here in St. Louis. For the other 7 cities, there is still football to look forward too. Not here. And the BattleHawks were one of a kind. I've never seen any sports team embraced by a city like that and I've neve...

Re: XFL Terminates All Employees

I've waited a few hours to gather my thoughts and I still have no words. Heartbroken might be the only one. I just can't believe this happened. This was spring football's last chance, and the XFL did everything right and it still didn't matter. We only got 2 games in St. Louis. Fuck this stupid virus.
