Re: The future of sports TV rights fees, and how it could affect the XFL

Then again.....playing football in July in places like Dallas and Houston could be brutal for players. Just ask anyone who played in the usfl when it's eighteen game schedule reached June and July and temps rose into the 90's. In the CFL it doesn't matter because it's Canada. So that's a reason why ...

Re: The future of sports TV rights fees, and how it could affect the XFL

This notion has been rejected on this board before.....but I'm bringing it up again. Enough if this having the season the week after the Super Bowl. Sure you're gonna have people who aren't finished with football after the fall NFL and college seasons, you'll always get that initial surge....but the...

Re: How many coaches will be back in 2022?

Maybe this is a little off topic.....but it was pointed out during last night's SF/LA game that kickers are favoring leaving the kickoffs short of the endzones to force the possibility of a quick turnover or to force bad field position. This more or less nullifies moving the kickoff up five yards to...

Re: The Spring League is playing in the Alamodome on FS1

If they do a documentary series involving the telling of personal tragedy stories such as you see on ninja warrior or the Rock's own titan games.....it'll go a long way in convincing me this isn't going to be a serious league. Just entertainment. I wouldn't bother.....nor will I watch.

Re: The Spring League is coming to Fox Sports

It looks to me like Fox Sports has moved on and found their alternative football product. Where does that leave Rock now?

Re: The Case for “Relocating” the Guardians to New Jersey

Look.....even the Red Bulls don't call themselves *New Jersey"....that despite the fact that New York City has it's own team. Assuming they could gain access to it, Red Bull arena has to be it. MetLife looked dreadful on TV....they should've at least made an effort to "shrink" it by tarping the uppe...

Re: Press Release: XFL Announces Return to the Field in 2022

Hoorayyyy!!!! That's pretty exciting news! And I wouldn't worry too much about the XFL brand losing momentum by not playing in 2021.....I think those of us who were watching understand and will be there when it returns.....it's definitely a positive for Rock to announce this now.....to squash any do...

Re: Path clears for spring football

So Rock and Dany didn't purchase this thing to kill it off. But here's a way they could go forward at least for now.....because of the "new normal" we're all supposed to be adapting to.....I've mentioned the premiere lacrosse league model before....one that has all it's teams play week to week in on...

Re: Path clears for spring football

Just because you may never get physically ill......you could still be exposed and you could infect others. It's called asymptomatic. You are not infallible. And if spring football is a dumb idea......than I guess the XFL is a dumb idea. It should play in the fall. If at all.

Re: XFL: When, what, if? Is the next step?

Are they starting from scratch? Is the basic structure that Vince McMahon put in place still there for Rock to work from? Or is this gonna be a complete new startup again?
