Look at all these rumors… about the XFL

Austin, TX– During its five weeks of duration, The XFL was not only innovative in the way the sport of football is played but also cultivated a huge fan base and following.

And personally, I am one of those fans.

There are many reasons as to why I hold a great affinity for the league as a whole, but the main reason that I loved the XFL was because it ignited something deep down within.

From the innovative presentation and broadcast of the games, the passion displayed by players and coaches, the kickoffs, the overtime rules, extra points, and live look-ins to the locker rooms and half time speeches, we all were able to use those experiences to fall back in love with the basics of football.

As my youth football coach always said during halftime, “The most important thing in this game, is to have fun.”

The fans experienced intimacy with the teams they followed, which I think is something that is missing in most of the professional sports we love to follow and watch. We are all excited about the potential of the XFL coming back, but as a reporter and a analyst, I have to be responsible in reporting information I receive.

Needless to say I have learned from my past transgressions. (Like 2 days ago)

Rumors and speculation have surrounded the XFL since the league cancelled it’s season, and it is okay that we are excited but most of the rumors and speculation surrounding the revival of the league has been mostly miss more than hit including my previous tweet earlier in the week, and that is never good for anyone involved.

Especially when fans of the beloved XFL are looking for breaking and exciting news during these troubling times around the world.

I am here to nip all of those rumors in the bud.

The facts are the XFL is currently going through the process of Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and that is all.

We will not truly know the fate of our beloved XFL until August 7th which is the date set for the XFL’s sale hearing.

There are rumors surrounding who the potential bidders and buyers could be, but that is all they are. Rumors.

The initial report about the league looking into relocating different teams to different markets or expansion of the league, again are just rumors.

Last but not least the article released earlier yesterday referring to Vince McMahon potentially cashing out after the bankruptcy process. You guessed it, it’s just another rumor.

Look at all of these rumors…

I understand how excited you are about the potential of the XFL coming back because like you I believe the league was poised for success.

But the fact of the matter is at this moment all we can do is wait patiently for August 7th, and any news you may possibly hear before then may just be… rumors.

I am excited and encouraged about the potential of the XFL returning, but also I understand that we must remain patient through this process.

As the old adage goes, “Some things in life are worth waiting for.”

If I receive any news or updates regarding the XFL I will be happy to share, but as of right now I do not expect much news to break.

    I appreciate the article. The XFL reignited my love for football as well. I watched all 20 games. I paid attention to ratings and attendance. I want this league to survive and thrive. For the LOVE of Football!!

  • Nicholas Pagano says:

    🏈Like you I’m upset that the XFL folded. Of all the XFL teams the that got hurt the most was the St. Louis BATTLEHAWKS. The reason is that of the other XFL teams St. Louis was the ONLY TOWN without an NFL franchise, we were severely hurt for the Third time. Is there any way SAINT LOUIS could hold onto a football franchise, somebody with Capital🏈🇺🇸FOR THE LOVE OF FOOTBALL🇺🇸

    St. Louis and Huston I feel suffered the most here. This can’t be gone. Something has to save it. They got it right this time.

  • Peter Hooper says:

    I absolutely loved the XFL in its short but well lived lifetime. Watched every game and enjoyed them all. I really hope the XFL survives and comes back stronger then ever.
