Re: Merch available 8/24

Waiting for the merch. is worse than waiting for the names/logos. Woah Woah Woah, no way. Waiting over 9 months just to get team identities was really excruciating. Waiting 3 days for merch isn't nearly as bad at all. I’m with Firecop on this one. I don’t think it was unreasonable for a league buil...

Re: Team Identity Reveal Thread

As a Los Angeles sports fan I’ve grown accustomed to people talking crap about my squad. In the case of the newly minted Wildcats I feel like a few of the main criticisms are kind of unfounded. First, the name. I am personally glad they stepped away from the the tried and true imagery of the glitz a...

Re: Team Identity Reveal Thread

Four things: 1. Somebody was comparing AAF and XFL logos on Twitter, and looking at all 16 together that would make one fine looking League. 2. Only 3 of the 8 XFL teams appear to have secondary logos. Hope the others come to light soon. 3. The more I hear the name BattleHawks in association with th...

Re: Team Identity Reveal Thread

Overall I think the league performed very well today. An upgrade from the 2001 branding in my opinion. Feels more professional in many ways, like plural names ending in “s” for starters. I really like the concepts behind every logo, except maybe the Dragons. They really tried to sell it in that reve...

Re: The XFL teases team logos on social media

Got that purple and yellow! Okay, maybe it’s more of a dark blue, but I’ll take it. Can’t wait to see these in all their glory.

Green and orange! And more red. Darn near every team has red in it. I hope these last two come through for me and change it up.

Re: The XFL teases team logos on social media

I interpreted that as people on reddit and twitter, not anyone on this board. But your response illustrates my point -- it doesn't sate the people who are irritated, and it's not hyping the people who have been patient. A rare active misstep from a social media team that's been strong, IMO. When th...

Re: The XFL teases team logos on social media

Exactly what Greg said. Mainstream media will pick up on it when the official reveal happens. This was 100% the league telling us league nerds “it’s time. Buckle up.”

Re: The XFL teases team logos on social media

Zero issue with the teases. It’s far from an AAF thing. Sports entities have been doing this for a long time. New logos, uniforms, etc. I get some are impatient, but none of us are new to sports I don’t think. I’m pretty sure all the identities are done and ready to go, they are just playing up the ...

Re: What should the location/name of the XFL championship game be?

Welcome to the board EDSN. The classic is a classy name for a football game. It has an old school feel to it. I like it. Not sure if any other name would be attached to it. Sounds like you are going for just 'The Classic'. Thanks for the warm welcome! That’s correct. Much like how the Super Bowl is...
