Re: Legendary Veteran Assistant Joins XFL Seattle

Kirksey and Ingram were two really solid hires announced today. These guys may not be around the league for the long-term due to their age, but they'll give more credibility to the league for folks on the outside looking in.

Re: Theotis Brown to join XFL St. Louis as Director of Player Personnel

I think the issue with St. Louis is that they don't have anyone associated with the Greatest Show on Turf associated with the team and that's what people in St. Louis want. You announce right off the bat that Isaac Bruce is going to be involved in this team, in whatever capacity, you can get people...

Re: Canadian Invited to The XFL Summer Showcases

I am cautiously optimistic that the XFL will last the three years Vince McMahon has allotted. It's making the right moves in everything so far. My issues involve the fact that the history of Spring Football has never been good and all this stuff I am hearing about Vince McMahon from the recently de...

Re: Canadian Invited to The XFL Summer Showcases

Yeah, I'd REALLY pump the brakes on the XFL expansion talk. Vince McMahon's funding for the first three years is likely going to cost around $500 million, and that's with the eight teams there are now. For every team you add, that's more equipment to buy, more front office personnel, coaches, and pl...

Re: Former LA Xtreme player returns to The XFL

I like that Tweet from Himebauch! One of the interesting storylines to track for the first season (and beyond) is how much they embrace the 2001 version of the league. Thus far, in public comments, Oliver Luck has pretty well distanced himself and XFL 2020 from the original incarnation. I wouldn't e...

Re: Joey Clinkscales named Los Angeles Director of Player Personnel

Love the Clinkscales hire in particular. Someone who was recently high-up in the NFL front office hierarchy and a pretty big "name" in scouting and executive circles. Because he was with the Raiders until January, he should be pretty familiar with a lot of those college UDFAs who will be at the Summ...

Re: Invites to the XFL Summer Showcase have started to go out

Selfishly I hope the Summer Showcase isn't open to the public. I would SO go to the one in Tampa but I'm up in New York visiting family that week, so if it WASN'T open to the public I'd feel better about missing it :)

Re: Invites to the XFL Summer Showcase have started to go out

Ha...yes, that's me, and no I wouldn't recommend buying the book. It did NOT turn out as I had hoped, and come to find out after the fact, the publisher was/is not exactly on the up-and-up. They had me edit my own book, which I had no experience doing, and the whole thing was just a mess. It was one...

Re: Invites to the XFL Summer Showcase have started to go out

The Galette invite is interesting and it makes me wonder about players who may fall through the cracks, those being NFL vets who may have been out of the league for a year or two and want to come back. I'm not sure if the expected speed of play will be conducive to those players, but with many of th...

Re: Final Team Names Prediction List

One thing to think about too (and maybe this has been discussed already), in addition to wanting to release information/news at times when there isn't much else going on in the sports world, is that you don't want to release too much information so close together. Spread out the coaching hires, spre...
