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?

Um how do you think they had a "crowd" on RAW? (Which of course the AEW marks are taking credit for and is totally bordering on Jesse Ventura Story-style parody) Besides they had an employee test positive at the Wrestlemania taping. Maybe he's just guessing (and of a course the unnamed XFL player w...

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/05/26/vince-mcmahon-says-hes-not-a-bidder-to-buy-xfl/ Of course he said similar in Oct 2000 when WCW was for sale (also took a perfect ****storm for that to happen). This could also be to shut all the Meltzers and other whiny columnists up (well, the attem...

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

If college football is pushed back into an abbreviated Feb-Apr spot, effectively taking the XFL's then 2021 is off the table* If you did that you'd almost have to cut the number of TV games in half on both the football and basketball side, which I don't think is a bad idea really because you can dum...

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

Something else to consider here, while I've mostly been watching the CFL, is no college football. While I don't think that will happen either and more likely that the college season gets pushed back and we have a jam-packed football/hoops split in eight months (which you'd be hard-pressed to find a ...

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

CFL has officially postponed their season until September (season opening Labor Day DH Sept 7?), a shortened season and a homefield Grey Cup https://touchdownwire.usatoday.com/2020/05/20/cfl-postpones-season-until-september-due-to-covid-10-pandemic/ Ultimately I don't think the CFL goes anywhere but...

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

The CFL going under could be a thing, at least it's closer to being a reality now than it was seven weeks ago when the XFL made the announcement. That said, the concern for 2021 is where are all the revenues coming from? That hasn't changed from seven weeks ago, along with the likelihood of the post...

Re: B.C. Lions owner: No games will lead to no CFL

What's interesting is the CFL just inked a new deal with TSN last fall and had two streaming deals in the works. Not sure of the money involved in the latter but the former was said to be at least 50 mil, plus there's a couple more in exp fees when they finally get Halifax going. And yet the pandemi...

Re: FL Gov welcomes teams to play in FL

Man...I wish Desantis was my state’s governor. Heh, tell me about it. My gov is the leader of the Western States Collective and the only reason he and Cooper(NC) are doing phased reopening is cause they're the only two up for re-election this year. The others are doing it in name only because their...
