Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

Bidders may be talking to Hunzeker, but I am sure there is no league official saying anything. They are very tight-lipped, and they have to be in order to keep the auction fair and equitable. One thing I thought of when he said "returning to St. Louis" is the notion that the XFL is packaging the lea...

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 ...

Re: Oliver Luck sues Vince McMahon

I am ashamed that I wrote an article that said Vince McMahon always pays his bills.

Re: How's everyone doing?

Disgusted by the league going down, and equally pissed about the whole Covid situation. It’s hard to see any silver lining in this. We are still in a place where we can hope the rest of the sports world will not be affected, but it may be naive to think that other leagues and/or teams will not fold ...

XFL Topps cards drop on April 15th

Yes, the league is bankrupt, but the Topps trading card release is still happening. I should post a review of the set in the next day or so, as I have obtained a hobby box and will crack it open once it arrives... hopefully soon.

At least there is one more piece of fun to be had from this league.

I guess that's the end of the road then.. such a shame. So much promise ended by this mad situation we all find ourselves in.
Yes, it is quite mad isn't it? Thankfully, we still have our health. Here's to keeping it that way!

XFL saying goodbye with a Gif

I don't know if you have noticed, but I am quite disappointed that the XFL said goodbye by posting a weak animated Gif on Twitter. https://twitter.com/xfl2020/status/1248693523051958272?s=20 I realize that this post was probably done by a low level minion just prior to leaving the job. My thought is...

XFL's Future

In my opinion, the future of the XFL lies in three areas:

1. How lengthy and damaging will the COVID-19 crisis be?
2. When will the world economy recover?
3. Will Vince McMahon want to try it again?
