Re: TV Rights deals - Gen discussion

Sports Business Journal reported today that NBCSN is shutting down and moving its major sports (NASCAR, NHL, etc.) to the USA Network. Not sure how serious NBC would've been in bidding on the XFL TV rights, but this seems to take away a potential bidder unless they want to keep compiling sports pro...

Re: XFL Seeks Chief Football Officer

Russ Brandon?

One need only look at how much the Buffalo Bills have improved WITHOUT his presence to see how unnecessary he is.

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

So that Saturday 2-5 slot that the XFL used all last season... did that just disappear or something?

Re: Johnny Football’s XFL career was a non-starter

Listen—we all knew Manziel did not qualify for the XFL under McMahon's policy, and that Luck never did explicitly say he would sign him... only that they MIGHT consider him. They ultimately did not, nor did they really need to since they had a pretty solid crew of NFL backups and AAF'ers to draw fro...

Re: XFL players signing with NFL teams tracker

Christian Kuntz was released from Pittsburgh's practice squad. Again. Don't worry, I have a "Christian Kuntz re-signed to Pittsburgh's practice squad" post saved in my drafts. Reminiscent of last year's James Vaughters express And of course, PJ Walker's entire three-year career with the Colts.

Re: TV Rights deals - Gen discussion

Netflix has repeatedly been offered live sports but has declined. Their infrastructure is not built for it; it's all pre-recorded content. Everything is video-on-demand for them, and you'll notice they release their videos in the middle of the night to spread out a rush. But the fact that even Fox n...

Even if that were the goal, that wouldn't explain the strategy. How does sending Canadians to play semipro in Mexico help the CFL?
I thought it was the other way around, the semi-pro guys were coming up north.

Re: CFL 2021(?) All aboot our friends up north

Gotta love people, whether they be agents or fans, that assume that the CFL is like the NFL, just a few days away from finalizing another monster TV contract, thus can withstand the financial hit from the pandemic. Hell in the same piece it was mentioned William Powell, 1000-yard rusher, taking a 3...

Re: June Jones to return to XFL in 2022...maybe

The Freedom Football League has already made a few changes: The league renames the Birmingham Kings to the Alabama Airmen. A couple of other teams have been renamed, too... the Austin Revolution is now the Texas Revolution, and the Portland Progress is now the Portland Power. Also, it appears they ...
