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

Vince will not be in on the bidding for buying the XFL out of bankruptcy. Of course there have been snarks out there accusing him of shuttering it just so he could acquire and relaunch it for pennies on the dollar. So Vince is pulling out. But there will be bidders..... ABC/ESPN/Disney would be the ...

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

Didn't Vince recently physically demonstrate a wrestling stunt? He's 73..... he's crazy. But passionate. If he can conjure up a way..... we'll see the XFL again.....and why should he? Because we were loving it and it wasn't failing....it might need some fine tuning but that could make it even better...

Re: CFL could fold - looks for Gov bailout

Well..... I see no way the CFL plays this summer unless stadiums are empty.....and if that's what butters their bread, I'd just take a pass on this season. Would cancelling the season before it starts allow them a better shot at longer term survival?

Re: OL, Week 6, VM and the XFL bankruptcy

This is a rumor, not fact yet......but there is a speculation that Vince may be entertaining the idea of selling WWE to ESPN/Fox. This is not the "Khan buys AAF" rumor of a month ago. If it were true, maybe that includes the XFL as well. That's false. ESPN and Fox have only expressed interest in WW...

Re: Sports leagues attitudes swinging back to resume/open

I don't know if there will ever be a desire to start something like this again .... in the fully recovered post pandemic world of 2025 or so.... the need might not exist, because by that time, the NFL will have expanded to 36 giving a team back to St. Louis.....and London..... they'll be playing 18...

Re: Buyers have apparently shown interest in purchasing the XFL

Just an opinion on what I think of the potential fallout on the NFL for all seems business as usual for now with teams still willing to invest in millions of dollars contracts for it's players and I'm wondering if that will be sustained....the NFL doesn't so much depend on it's gate as much as their...

Re: Buyers have apparently shown interest in purchasing the XFL

My wishful thinking would have Fox and ESPN/ABC actually purchasing and owning the league if they truly believe in the product they were producing that we were all in high praise of. At least if they owned it's assets ..they could decide if it's worth a look sometime when whatever sense of normalcy ...

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 woul...
