Re: Eric Galko idea about XFL 2020 waiver system

I especially like the emphasis on geographical talent, this was a concept the original USFL had as a means to generate local interest...in order to grab attention, they need to be an alternative.....something the NFL isn't. The original AFL did it with rules variations, a wider open game, and things...

Re: XFL News lacking, Interest waning ?

I've pretty much given up on any chance Dwayne does anything with this...no one is gonna give him a paying deal if that's what he's needing. But any chance an XFL franchise or two or three could turn up in the USFL?

Re: BUFFALO BILLS possible move - Austin #1 target

Poor Ralph Wilson....he'd be rolling in his grave if his Bills leave. After all he's meant to Buffalo and all he did to help the AFL weather the early years including loaning the Oakland Raiders 400,000 in 1960 dollars to stay afloat...otherwise they fold. Bad idea to have a third team in Texas and ...

Re: XFL officially delays start until 2023

I thought FOX made the TSL games on Saturdays look really good presentation wise,. kinda like the XFL games of 2020....so I'm thinking this USFL with brandings at least older fans know, and younger ones can attach too...with the expected lot of not yet ready for NFL players would potentially do a mi...

Re: TSL 2> USFL

I just hope the expectation of what we'll see here is kept realistic. This is not the 80s USFL/David Dixon model. That was designed with major league aspirations. They were supposed to adhere to a structured financial model but that strategy fell very quickly and ownerships were bailing out after se...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

Oh well....is there anyone here who remembers the original league anyway? It's a cool branding so why not? It's been forty years. But the notion of two competing spring leagues competing for the limited available watchable talent seems zany. It feels as though it's really gonna launch this time thou...

Re: If the CFL XFL merger takes place Do you want 3 down football or 4 down football?

A great topic, and one that needs to be discussed it all this talk of an amalgamation is to be taken seriously. The Canadian game plays on a gridiron 110 by 65 with 12 men per side, deeper end zones and three downs to move 10 yards.......The american version is 100 by 53 and 4 down with shorter endz...

Re: Rumored details revealed on cfl/xfl merger

Here we go again.....Beginning this CFL season if one goes down.....the Edmonton Eskimos are no more. In order to appease the inuit community, the team will go by "EE Football club" or the alternative "Edmonton Football Club" until a new name is drawn up. How about "Roughrid...
