Re: Four things we need to happen when the XFL returns

I am happy that the current XFL is nothing like the original XFL. Nostalgia always makes one think fondly on the positives. The truth is that the original XFL was a bad sports league. Just a poorly conceived football product. There are a few people around that actually followed or covered XFL 2001....

Re: Four things we need to happen when the XFL returns

I realize this is tongue in cheek, but I think the league needs to avoid the OG league for the first season. In 2021 the WIldcats can do some sort of 20th Anniversary celebration for the Xtreme. I agree completely. Re-establish yourself in Year 1, connect to the past where appropriate for the 20th ...

Re: Team Nine officially announced, roster set

It’s like team 9 has an unofficial group of practice squad players for every team.

It looks like every XFL team has 5 players each on the team. Dragons and Roughnecks are only carrying two active quarterbacks but they have quarterbacks on team nine ready to be called up like Callahan and McDade.

Re: Seattle leading ticket sales?

Good news for Dallas. Oliver Luck is doing radio row interviews in Miami and there should be a lot of promotion leading into week one.

ESPN not doing fantasy football for the XFL

XFLNewsHub had an article today that said that ESPN is not going to do fantasy this season. The XFL will be doing something called prop bets and that ESPN will be doing a streak for the cash feature on their site. Can someone fill me in on what this streak for the cash thing is?

Pat McAfee working for the XFL part time

The report is that Pat McAfee will work the ESPN opening game with Dallas but will then not work weekly. ESPN’s Cole Cubelic is supposed to work the field analyst role when McAfee is off.

I was really looking forward to McAfee being a weekly fixture for XFL games.

Re: Private Ownership vs League Ownership

Interesting topic. Vince McMahon and NBC’s original plan was to build up the XFL to the point where they could sell franchises eventually. They obviously never got there. Vince McMahon re WWE: There are hundreds of people in the WWE in producer and authority positions. Bookers, trainers, agents, wri...

Re: Team Nine has its head coach

Team Nine will probably be XFL helmets. League jerseys with the league’s colors. Nothing fancy. I like the Andrus hire you need someone who has a background with Oliver Luck’s concept. There’s also the logistics of it. This isn’t a wins-losses team. So not many coaches would agree to just coach prac...
