Re: G Parks: The cold, hard truth about the hurdles facing XFL 3.0

2)Wish they would stop throwing around the failure tag (or even the 3.0 label when 2.5 is more accurate) when pretty much everything was shut down, we'll never know. Are we going to extend it to everything that ratings-wise has been a total meh since coming back? Be consistent, yes it's hard but c'...

Re: G Parks: The cold, hard truth about the hurdles facing XFL 3.0

Can't disagree with much of it, just a couple points: 1)Being that FOX is full speed ahead for the NFL in the next TV contracts (which they sort of have to, see mid 90s CBS and late 90s-mid-00s NBC) you kind of wonder what long term future there was with them, only so much $$$$$ to go around when th...

Re: The Rock owned XFL needs to address the Elephant in the room: Social Justice

It doesn't have to be any of that. It can be simple as a statement condemning racism and being a league that is open to everyone regardless of religion, race, gender, political affiliation or sexual orientation. That's it. They can release that statement and move on to just football. But I guess yo...

Re: XFL: When, what, if? Is the next step?

The Big Ten and Pac 12 may just have changed the landscape altogether, now the MWC and MAC are hinting around at resuming play in late October, leaving (as of now) FCS conferences and lower divs. Why would you hitch your wagon to that? I don't see anybody but maybe ESPN2 putting on North Dakota/NDSU...

Re: The Rock owned XFL needs to address the Elephant in the room: Social Justice

Look at the ratings for sports lately. They're awful. You'd think with coronavirus wreaking havoc on any form of competing entertainment, ratings would be through the roof—but the opposite has happened. Instead, ratings have plummeted. The players of the major leagues have alienated the fans that g...

Shout out to former analyst Greg Olsen for ruling the day among the XFL set with a TD and the funny (non-Jets edition) of the day with the excuse-me love tap of Will Dissly.

Re: NFL Season starts tonight - Did the XFL lose its moment?

The Texans are suddenly staring at 0-4, maybe Falcons would have been better (Ryan, Gurley, JuJo, Ridley, Grady Jarrett) like was reportedly Plan B--no doubt before Brady left Brady/Mahomes was Plan A. Granted there's only been a handful of interconference matchups in the history of Thursday night o...

Kezar Stadium does not look like a viable option, IMO. Way too small time, despite its history.
No kidding, says it's around 10,000. Doesn't look much bigger to me than the Pine Bowl (Whitworth) which is about four miles from me

Maybe it's location :?:

Re: XFL players signing with NFL teams tracker

I think people were basing it on how many teams kept three quarterbacks, i.e. if JT and PJW switched, JT would have got the spot in Carolina. As it was there was no way that Reid was going to keep two 35+ QBs behind Mahomes, so JT was on the right track (he beat out his predecessor Shea Patterson) N...
