Re: RedBird Capital, Dany Garcia, and The Rock to buy XFL for $15M

The logistics of a bubble season seem pretty daunting. You're talking about housing roughly 400 players, plus other team personnel for a 2-3 month season. Yes the NHL and NBA are doing it but: 1. They have a lot more capital than the XFL to pull it off, not to mention an established target TV audie...

Re: Could the new owners sell off individual teams?

If it happens, it should be years down the road for the ownership group to maximize its profits. Think about it: If they sold off the franchises within the next few months/year, how much are you realistically going to get for a team that has played half a season (and we don't even know if all the te...

What is meant by a "Bubble Season"...what would that possibly look like?
Same thing the NHL and NBA are doing. Having the season take place in one city basically keeping players under a “bubble” without having to travel across the country.

Re: RedBird Capital, Dany Garcia, and The Rock to buy XFL for $15M

It's a little disappointing that someone could buy an entire league for that price. So maybe I can't smell what the Rock is cookin'...... don't know how rich this group is. My expectations are lowered. He's successful with the Titan Games so we'll see Again, the price tag is likely so low because i...

Re: RedBird Capital and the Rock to buy XFL for $15M

Early returns on the NHL and NBA bubbles are positive thus far. MLB, the non-bubble organization, is having difficulty. If the plan for the XFL is a bubble in Houston or wherever in 2021, that may be the best bet (keeping in mind things can and will change between now and then). Sure, but a bubble ...
