No Politics

SInce Vince McMahon has said the XFL will be apolitical (not interested or involved in politics), I wonder if this is possible with today's political climate. Might be a tough one to pull off.

Re: Games will only be two hours?

Certainly lessons could be learned from the CFL, which seems to be a much faster game.

Re: Reuse old team names and logos.

A "name the team" contest, if done properly, can help build up local support.

We will see if this version of XFL management is willing to try this.

Re: Which cities will get a team?

Vince McMahon basically said he would be "hands off" (this time) and let others make the important decisions. I am waiting to see if this comes true. :)

Re: Games will only be two hours?

There has to be savings for the time after the two-minute warning. In the CFL they have a three-minute warning and the last three minutes of a CFL game usually go twice as fast as the last two minutes of a NFL game.

How will they stop players from kneeling?

Games will only be two hours?

Vince McMahon stated that NFL games are too long and the XFL games will only be two hours? How can pull this off?

Re: Which cities will get a team?

Thanks for the analysis of this Sykotyk. After the last go-around with nthe XFL I am not convinced that logic will dicate the decisions. It will be fun to see how they do it differently this time.

I hope Birmingham gets a team. If there is a place that absolutely loves football, it is Alabama.

Which cities will get a team?

What type of criteria will the XFL use to award the teams? Market size? Lack of NFL presence? Past history as an XFL city?
