Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

Which, if you were Disney/ESPN and were potentially interested in bidding, would be a good thing.

Re: Spurrier signals interest in coaching if XFL returns

As a fan, I think a reborn Apollos (and Commanders) in the XFL would be amazing. As a realist, I'm pretty sure they would rebrand to sell another round of jerseys and t-shirts. But fun to think about. If the league comes back, Spurrier is a must get. Born for an all-access league like the XFL, plays...

There's always a chance, but I'd be very surprised if Dundon ever gets involved in startup football again.

Re: Oliver Luck sues Vince McMahon

Yeah, and he's listed as a creditor. Luck isn't. How is that the same treatment?

I don't really care either; he's a millionaire and he'll be fine. But I don't get the angle you're working.

How does a company 'out of business' ie no money - pay anyone.
Alpha has money, the owner just doesn't want to give it away.

What am I missing? Why do you think Luck should be treated differently than Stoops?

Re: Oliver Luck sues Vince McMahon

Are you sure that VM paid all XFL 1.0 bills for future work performance. Were all contracts for 1 year? I doubt it. No, they weren't. In fact, all the GMs were on 2-year deals except Tom Veit. But when the league went under, Vince extended his contract a year to put him in line with the other guys....

Re: Oliver Luck sues Vince McMahon

I'm not a lawyer, but if it was the same end result, why take a different course of action? Sad end. I sort of agree with Mark; I really appreciated that XFL 1.0 ended without lawsuits or unpaid bills. We don't yet know the full story, but it sure looks like Vince was willing to do right by most eve...
