Re: Fans will be back in the stands

Nobody cares about Covid-19 anymore. The protests are proof of that. Well, Fauci and a few germaphobic epidemiologists still care, that much is certain. But the vast majority of people who were pushing this in April and early May have moved on—including Andrew Cuomo (and New York is well on its way...

Not surprising based on comments about how he was treated.

Re: Spurrier signals interest in coaching if XFL returns

This is all provided of course there's an America that they can come back to. A few weak mayors/governors are getting called out. The rads will be separated from legit people that are voicing their concerns. This did prove one thing wuhan virus hysteria over blown (at least for under 50's) . Market...

Re: Spurrier signals interest in coaching if XFL returns

Spurrier would be an upgrade over Trestman, for sure. As for the Orlando Apollos trademark... the USPTO says the Orlando Apollos trademark is dead (abandoned), meaning the new owners (or anyone else) could easily reclaim it. The Apollos equipment was purchased by Jerry Kurz; Major League Football c...

Re: Disney/Fox inquired about XFL

the way things are falling a part in this country, it's best that the XFL not return. Yeah, I live 20 miles west of Chicago. The city is being destroyed. I’ve been listening to the police radio all night. It’s ridiculous. On the plus side, clearly these large mass gatherings of people suggest that ...

Re: Spurrier signals interest in coaching if XFL returns

agree, and I'd also add that the Wildcats should be moved to San Diego. It'd be great to get the fleet back as well. Not likely unless there is expansion or NFL gets involved in ownership. REASON? LA is 5 times as big a TV market - and the reason the XFL has a post bankruptcy chance is TV ratings w...

Re: Disney/Fox inquired about XFL

Well, FOX would be the entity that would be best to buy and support the league in my opinion. I hope Vince would at least consider holding onto a minority stake in the XFL even if it’s just 5%. Just so he could at the minimum be a part of its success down the road. I listened to part of Mike Mitche...

Re: Spurrier signals interest in coaching if XFL returns

Did the XFL ever acquire the names/logos from the AAF? I was just curious if it was possible to resurrect the Apollos in Orlando with Spurrier? Would be interesting getting an Orlando team back in it with him as the coach. I'm not sure who bought those rights (if anyone) but I'm sure their best cha...
