Re: The future of sports TV rights fees, and how it could affect the XFL

This notion has been rejected on this board before.....but I'm bringing it up again. Enough if this having the season the week after the Super Bowl. Sure you're gonna have people who aren't finished with football after the fall NFL and college seasons, you'll always get that initial surge....but th...

Re: FS1: TSL Game Thread: Tuesday, Oct. 27 Conquerors vs. Generals 8:00 PM EDT

What says there will be a big XFL move by January? and What merger are you alluding to? Not a real merger, but a partnership deal--can be looked at as a pseudo-merger though. And the big January move would on an accelerated timeline: Jan 2018: restart announcement, June 2018: Luck hired. 4-5 months...

Re: FS1: TSL Game Thread: Tuesday, Oct. 27 Conquerors vs. Generals 8:00 PM EDT

Thumbs up to FS1 coverage and TV prod values in this game. Lighting at stadium is excellent. I hate to say this but could this be the Fall dev league that NFL really wants. Its low cost. It can play Tuesdays Wednesdays. It keeps players in FB shape when they need them. I could see NFLN and FS1 or o...

Re: TSL News Thread

Hey maybe since the Seahawks just brought Mychal Kendricks back they can send Cody Barton down there since his tackling and ball skills are Daniel Jones open fieldesque😁

I mean if we're going big..................

Re: Spring 2021 FCS: Scouting for the next Donald Parham

This is the year FCS prospects are getting screwed bigtime. Hell, Trey Lance, as everyone expected, playing NDSU's game back on 10/3 and then bouncing pretty much shows that. Most FCS prospects come from playoff teams, so why on earth would one play in the playoffs with the chance of playing the sam...

Re: TSL players/coaches of interest

How's that? . Because much like with Zorn, they shouldn't be used as selling points. Barring the miniscule chance of Gus Johnson and Joel Klatt calling one of these games it shouldn't be in the convo other than as a side "Oh, cool" deal. Besides, as with Zorn in Snyderland,, Patterson's time at Mic...

Re: TSL players/coaches of interest

I get a kick out of the way they get in a plug for OSU/Michigan with Barrett and Patterson, remember in the first Big Ten reschedule it was set to be Oct 24 before going back to where it belongs. Unfortunately I'm also getting "Jim Zorn back to DC" vibes, in which nobody cares. How's that? . Becaus...

Re: Will the XFL Allow Kneeling as a Form of Protest?

$15 million is an awful lot for a publicity stunt. Let's not look a gift horse in the mouth, nobody else even put a quality bid on the league besides the Rock and Co. So for all the ratings and attendance talk people love to shout about, when the books were opened, potential investors ran the other...
