Wow.

So Alpha Entertainment still likely has a couple hundred million cash in the bank. Will that be rolled back into WWE (to cushion its losses from not being able to have audiences) or put into some other venue?
This. The WWE has lost a lot of money having empty arena shows.

Re: XFL Terminates All Employees

There's nothing right now to do anything for year two-- everybody is going to lose tons of money, where do you think that leaves startups? (hell I wouldn't be shocked if AEW shuts down at some point, so as kind of odd that is to see Vince and Tony Khan in the same boat, it is what it is) So anythin...

Re: XFL Terminates All Employees

That's not good for the league's chances of returning.

Re: Open Public Tryouts

Does anyone know if the XFL or any of the teams will hold open tryouts for the public for the potential 2021 season? No. The XFL does not do open tryouts. They are strictly by invitation only. Leagues that do open tryouts largely do it as a revenue source. It exploits players with delusions of gran...

Re: The 2021 XFL Season: Will it happen or not?

The thing is the unknown nature of this virus. We don't know how long this will last. That is why there's a chance that there won't be an XFL season in 2021. There is some amount of unknown factor in this but the models tend to be showing that cases will be eradicated by May. It's not a totally unk...

Re: The 2021 XFL Season: Will it happen or not?

It's going to happen. New York, the epicenter of the pandemic, is already nearing its peak according to the governor, and we're less than a month into this. Don't be fooled by the daily increases—there is a whole lot of irregularity in testing and it's weeks behind the actual infections most of the...

Re: AAF is returning

Yeah....but it would be cool. There's nothing else to talk about except which XFL standouts will be potentially joining an NFL team for a season that isn't taking place. I don't believe we will see any sports in 2020 period. Our stadiums are becoming field hospitals for crying out loud. If there is...

Re: The 2021 XFL Season: Will it happen or not?

Sounds gloomy. I don't see how this affects only the XFL. Is your point that this might make all sports a thing of the past? No. It's that if it comes to that point, we might have other things to worry about other than the XFL. I still think that we will have a full season, plus post-season and cha...
