Re: Something I didn’t expect to see…espn running USFL highlights

That is one of the advantages of playing football in June—the college sports season (as well as the NHL and NBA) is over so you only have baseball, CFL and MLS. ESPN has the CFL, but 9 teams is far less than the 300 D-I basketball programs. SportsCenter during the MLB all-star break has always amuse...

Re: The Rock on Expansion

That was handled about as well as I could imagine. It's easy for a league to start getting carried away with expansion (ahem, MLS). But Johnson was realistic and diplomatic. That's a good sign of responsible ownership. As a single entity, the XFL doesn't really have the benefits to expansion that a ...

Re: Larry Fedora mentions he’s heard rumors of expansion

Oh so I guess the stadium that just hosted eight weeks of the USFL is only used for that and the six UAB games Good to know No I am saying that most NFL stadiums are only used for 10-20 events a year and a lot of those stadiums are in good condition. I don't consider the stadium that just hosted th...

Re: Xfl footballs possibly shown at showcases

Those basically seem like they're "The Duke," the same ball the NFL uses. Meh.

At least the 2020 balls were researched and tested extensively before they were used.

Re: Season awards coming tomorrow

So Turpin at TCU.....yikes at that off field issue. Explains why he didn't get a single look by any NFL team in 2019. Hopefully he learned his lesson and has grown up after that charge. it was almost 4 years ago (10/2018). We've seen Mixon and many others get a pass. Turpin will likely get his. I d...

Re: USFL Coaches 2023

I think that's probably true, barring either Sumlin or Holtz (based on this season's performance more likely the latter) getting an opportunity to be a D1 head coach again. Do the coaches have the same reserve clause in their contracts as the players do forbidding them from leaving for any other jo...

Re: CFL Topics

Nice.

Alas, I swore off the Ti-Cats after 23 straight seasons without a Grey Cup victory in a 9-team league. So I'm probably going to sit this year out.

They and Amazon seem to be the leading bidders. I'd give the edge to Amazon given the history the league has with them but I wouldn't count Apple out yet.

Re: Semi-OT. Apple acquires MLS rights

I thought the idea behind all that expansion was to grow their footprint for tv. If that's not the case, might that spell trouble? Don't kid yourself. Expansion teams are about one thing first and foremost, and that is expansion fees. Each new team means a few extra million for every other team in ...

Re: Semi-OT. Apple acquires MLS rights

Wouldn't really affect the USFL since FOX had most of their coverage done before it started (only 5/21 during the season opposite Mich/Bir on NBC), it would help the XFL though in that ESPN and ABC had games in February, March, and April that were/were to be XFL spots in 2020. While I'm sure this w...
