Re: XFL - One year after kick off... and waiting

Yeah, I think we're past the break even point and now every week that passes without a clear indication that they are moving forward makes the odds of a 2022 season less likely. I'd bet they announce the CFO by the end of march. We were Sold/Told on the idea that new league really needed 2 years to...

I don't think Tebow wants to play football anymore. He makes good money covering college football for ESPN.
And he turned down the xfl the first time. I think he probably just wants to chill..maybe play in the fcf just for fun because there is minimal risk there

Re: XFL - One year after kick off... and waiting

GregP, Here's one place I read it, though it doesn't say "none of their own money" it certainly implies that the lion's share at minimum will need to come from league TV contract (and gate too). https://xflnewshub.com/columns/xfl-the-race-to-relaunch-ontime-for-the-2022-season/ >> The consensus fro...

Re: XFL - One year after kick off... and waiting

Let's not forget that RedBird Capital are partners in this too, and they manage in the neighborhood of $4 billion dollars in assets. This is not an ownership group that is lacking in money - how much they want to spend is certainly debatable but the idea they don't want to put any of their money in...

Re: XFL - One year after kick off... and waiting

Funding IS a big hurdle. You can’t not think of previous leagues, especially the AAF and see how lack of funding did it in. This XFL has owners with money, and entertainment business savvy. They won’t put their money down unless they see there is a business case for making more money. I will be int...

Very disappointing that the XFL wasn't in a position to recruit Pep back. Maybe he wouldn't have been interested anyway, but at least from the outside, he was great for D.C.
There's no way Pep was coming back with an NFL job in hand. Glad for him though

Re: So Robert Griffin III Just Got Cut

Just because he's a free agent doesn't mean he would want to play in the XFL. He'll want to go somewhere to compete for a starting job probably because he may need to prove something. Not every QB who is a free agent in the NFL will want to go to the XFL. RG3 isn't competing for a starting job lite...
