Re: Game Thread: St. Louis BattleHawks @ DC Defenders Sun 8-Mar-20 3PM ET on FS1

That was a Defensive battle. DC really turned it on when the QB changed. Wasn't expect the Battlehawk struggle so much with penalties and feel short on 4 and inches. Not with that run game.

Re: XFL Sponsors

I’m completely okay with this. Not a fan of the look but I understand the league has to make money I've been calling for this since AAF days... Why pay to be on TV (AAF) with decent ratings AND not sell on field & on jersey ads? I don't prefer it but if tasteful I can deal with it. The AAF always p...

Re: Battlehawks to open upper deck!!

There is zero evidence that Chicago can support an XFL team, so stop it with Chicago. The WFL, USFL and XFL 1.0 all failed in Chicago. This would be no different. They need to prove they can support alternative football, and so far they have not. My suggestion has been for the XFL to host a few neu...

Re: Battlehawks to open upper deck!!

This story shows how much of a mistake it was to place seven of the eight XFL teams in NFL cities. The type of ticket demand in St. Louis could have been league-wide. You're assuming a) that attendance is the league's priority and b) that demand in St Louis would be just as high in league devoid of...

Re: Battlehawks to open upper deck!!

Wow, those sold fast. Looking like they might get a crowd of 40,000+. I can see that happening. I think we are going to see the biggest crowd for spring league football looking back into the AAF and we know what the XFL has done. I think the biggest is 30,000 late in the AAF season for San Antonio....

Re: Battlehawks to open upper deck!!

Upper deck sold out and only on resale now at 50 a piece at the cheapest. Still some 36 dollar tickets in the level down. This story shows how much of a mistake it was to place seven of the eight XFL teams in NFL cities. The type of ticket demand in St. Louis could have been league-wide. Blame Charl...

Re: Battlehawks to open upper deck!!

Looks like the upper home side sideline is what was opened and going fast. So pricing is very upper level $15, $24 for the lower rows of the upper. I can't recall if this counts as a new level as well. The first section up from the bowl. the 300s is $42

Re: Battlehawks to open upper deck!!

The only issue is, will $10 tix make up for the salaries you are paying the stand workers and custodial people to clean the extra bathrooms etc That, and there's a concern that opening up that section as "cheap seats" would devalue the lower bowl seats that the XFL wants filled to capacity so that ...
