Re: The Athletic: XFL players to get pennies on the dollar for what they are owed

WIN BONUSES! For games they didn't even play! Based on the advice of UFPA! These players would be better off with an XFLBoard.com account than listening to this guy. Holy shit. Seems like it's the "shoot for the moon; even if you miss, you'll land among the stars" philosophy applied to ba...

Key difference is I believe Luck is suing McMahon personally, rather than Alpha Entertainment. So his suit would be separate from anything to do with the bankruptcy proceedings.

Re: BBJ - Birmingham should pursue USFL for Protective Stadium

The city of Birmingham or it’s fans never seem to be shy about begging for another shot with a new football league.

Re: Dany Garcia: "We are months from hitting the field..."

Those TV deals are void with the bankruptcy. Was there ever an official ruling on that? I assume there must have been and I missed it somewhere because those deals are never talked about in the context of the current XFL, but last I remember was both FOX and ESPN submitting arguments against their ...

Re: Dany Garcia: "We are months from hitting the field..."

Perhaps they can play a mini season of 6 games using a hybrid of XFL-CFL rules before the merger/partnership happens. With Redbirds new acquire I'm sure the Television and streaming talk will start heating up now. The problem is that it's too late to secure a TV contract for this season at this poi...

Re: Dany Garcia: "We are months from hitting the field..."

If we want to be technical, 2022 still IS the official timeline for kickoff from the XFL. We've heard nothing directly from the league that pushes the date back. So maybe she's just speaking of what the official line from the XFL is to this point, even if it's likely an official announcement is made...

Re: Dany Garcia: "We are months from hitting the field..."

It's funny how she says it clearly meaning to imply that they are a long way away, but if taken literally, it would actually mean the opposite. Part of what gets me about it is the humor in it: For someone as media savvy as Garcia, whose responses are always perfectly curated, you'd think she'd be ...

Dany Garcia: "We are months from hitting the field..."

So EOnline did a profile of Dany Garcia, and in an e-mail to them, she wrote briefly about the XFL.
