June Jones would return to XFL - Apparently treated well on way out...

>>June Jones Talks XFL Bankruptcy and Says He Would Return

https://xflnewsroom.com/news/june-jones ... ld-return/

>>He was asked about the rumor that Disney is interested in purchasing the league and said they would be a perfect fit, specifically mentioning the funding they’d be able to provide. He also spoke very highly of Vince McMahon, praising him for paying all staff and refunding season ticket holders prior to bankruptcy.

The big question that’s still on a lot of peoples minds is; Will any of the coaches and players return if the league does? Well, Coach Jones was asked about that and said he’d definitely return to coach the Houston Roughnecks. When asked if Houston would be his top choice or if he’d choose another city if he had the choice and he said he loves the city of Houston.<<

As I've stated in previous Posts - all coaches and players were paid, not just for their games palyed/coached but for the entire season. Yes VM isn't honoring next years salaries....why should he? These guys got treated well for a bankrupt company.<<

Pep won't be back for sure, he'll be coaching Tyrod Taylor/Justin Herbert/Easton Stick this year

If Easton doesn't, um, stick the new ownership's gotta find a way to get him just on name alone (also winningest QB in FCS history)

It seems like the vast majority of people who were involved with the 2020 XFL season had nothing but good things to say about it... except Oliver Luck, of course.

Not surprising based on comments about how he was treated.

Who knows, if Disney got involved, they've got the bucks to influence the decisions being made in one direction or another if they want it.
