Re: TSL Game Thread: Tuesday, Oct. 27 Conquerors vs. Generals 8:00 PM EDT

I figured, looking at the rosters alone, that the Generals had to be heavy favorites in this one.

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

The XFL had the benefit of good ratings. Better than the NHL's (which NBC paid hundreds of millions per year) and competitive with the NBA (which gets billions). The fact is that any first-year league is going to have doubts as to whether it can draw an audience. The networks prefer something proven...

Re: Spring 2021 FCS: Scouting for the next Donald Parham

The Supplemental Draft might be worth exploring in the case of such prospects.

It's not technically a union. It's an important distinction to make.
However, it is likely that players affiliated with it would likely certify it as a union in the event a league returns.

Fans allowed? In a fully enclosed arena? Bold strategy, Cotton.

Re: TSL players/coaches of interest

Seeing how many repeat players are showing up on these rosters, I wonder if Woods has waived the sign-up fee for them. I can't imagine players wanting to come back having to pony up $2,000 a session.

Re: Dwayne Johnson & Dany Garcia to appear on VICE TV tonight

I agree on the point that the new owners should rebuild the teams and maybe publish a schedule before they talk about these type of policies. Someone also pointed out they should talk to their players, too. However, I see that the players wants and needs are built into their plan. For those who are...

Re: Dwayne Johnson & Dany Garcia to appear on VICE TV tonight

I have read that the main topic tonight will be social justice and sports. Not sure if we are going to get any significant XFL news. Apparently we already have: the no-kneeling during the anthem rule is now gone. And now they'll ENCOURAGE it, even after all the damage it did to other sports. Well, ...

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? Look, not so fast. This is filler for a different time of season. Fox has already said they're willing to keep carrying the XFL. I'll give you an example from Canada in TSN. TSN...

Re: TSL structure

Are the players paying to participate? Do we know what rules they're using? TSL and its predecessor the FXFL use a rulebook somewhere between the NFL and XFL. The kickoff rules are very similar. But as far as I know they don't use the double-forward pass or yardage conversions except when testing t...
