I think that's probably a fair way to put it.

Re: Murdoch says fox plans on building up and selling teams for the next 5-7 years

I’m willing to hedge a bet that the XFL owners are no different. They want to build the league so they can sell franchises. Making a huge return on their investment. Don’t be disappointed if they say this is about football, because it is only partially about football. I believe in my heart McMahon ...

I seem to remember DC and San Antonio as potential expansion teams that were floated around that time.

Re: The "Defenders" no longer, says former DC staffer

So my question is if this XFL is so different from prior liked XFL, why the excitement for XFL? Do you make room at all for the possibility that, even though you may disagree, others may like the new ownership, like what they've said they want this league to be about, like the head coaching hires, ...

Re: The "Defenders" no longer, says former DC staffer

Devastating, if true. To what end? Why even buy the IP? I've wondered that for a while now. If you're going to rebrand the league with an unrecognizable logo and color scheme (no color scheme at all actually), then change team names and identities, what is even the point of buying the league? They ...

Re: The "Defenders" no longer, says former DC staffer

Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me if teams were all re-branded. I wouldn't be in favor of it, but this new ownership showed in the re-branding of the league logo that they weren't married to anything necessarily from 2020 (and if they hadn't come up with the "two sides of the 'X' merging into one&...

Re: Donnie woods (Brian woods brother) on the xfl tv deal

Danny Garcia went on record stating they were seeking a substantial rights fee, and RedBird was even rumored to drop the whole thing for a brief period of time before going "all in." I can't say with certainty there's a rights fee, but just based on the previous words and actions of this ...
