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

IMO... If no credible buyer steps up - I think VM will step in as a "white knight" buyer. Fans will be fine with that - but a third party buyer may have better luck pulling back in all the laid off front office, back office, team coaches and trainers etc... I, too, think that Vince is likely to not...

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

Let me get this straight - creditors are going to chase away their best chance of getting paid (under a new contract) by hounding Vince M out of the bidding so there may be no XFL? Are people stupid? Its Chapter 11, its a reorg with debt clearing. - 3 options 1) he buys back and brings back most peo...

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

2021 is very likely off the table even if the league comes back. Remember, he would have to basically start from (almost) scratch again. New staff, coaches, players, vendors etc. But hey, maybe we can hold out hope for 2022!! 2021 is not off the table - they are looking into the leases already at 3...

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

Thought this early on for same reasons stated. IMO he think Luck was spending too much money and he thinks it could be done for less. Ie too many players for a 10 week season. The refund fo season ticket holders. The chp 11 vs 7. Putting in $3.5mm to close out etc.... Also VM may have been buying ti...

Re: VM lists reasons for OL firing- PFT

I think he'll settle for the $2.8mm which he has a much better argument and that will end this... If I were luck, I wouldn't settle for anything less than say 50% of the contract. Personal guarantee of the contract (which I think is new news) changes everything. I'm guessing (no first hand knowledg...

Re: CFL could fold - looks for Gov bailout

Speaking of Canada - the push back is growing there too... And resistance is going to grow... There is a minor "pushback" movement here in Canada, and it mostly comes from watching and mimicking the movement in the United States. Most Canadians see Covid as a real threat and we've been fighting it ...
