CEO & Commissioner of the XFL, Oliver Luck, joined the Dan Sileo Show on 97.3 “The Fan,” in San Diego, to talk about the success the AAF had in their first weekend, and more so about the football talent the XFL wants to showcase.
Luck pointed out that the AAF opening weekend proved, “there is no question there is an appetite for good quality football.” Luck went on the point out that there is a vast amount of football talent that doesn’t get a chance to play in the NFL, and he feels leagues like the AAF and XFL can serve to give them a place to play the game they love.
Luck also alluded to big news regarding the television partners. “We will be announcing shortly our broadcast partnerships and they’re going to be as strong as Bob Stoops was in coaching circles,” Luck said.
Luck also revealed how well-respected NFL VP of Officiating Dean Blandino will be working with the league, to make sure XFL officiating is done correctly.
