Re: How do you save money having teams in Arlington?

They've recreated the NBA's Texas Triangle. Now if only the high-speed rail were ready to go between them. But there's buses going dirt-cheap between those cities. Its obvious that an 8 team league having 3 in Texas is cost to operate. Travel within texas will be cheaper due to bus vs flight. But t...

Re: Team names for San Antonio, Las Vegas and Orlando?

Given that San Francisco was the most popular team in the original XFL, and Oakland is being stripped of its teams, I can't see why Las Vegas is a preferred location to the Bay Area in 2023.

Re: USFL has reached out to cities and will play games in cities according to report

“It’s notable to hear Murdoch speak specifically about the USFL being a long-term play for Fox, though (it’s even featured on the main Fox Corp. website, as seen at top), and to hear that he envisions eventually selling some or all teams to local ownership. (Local support isn’t that notable yet, es...

Re: How do you save money having teams in Arlington?

Cheaper housing in Texas. May be able to score a deal with a national hotel chain and/or airline for discounted boarding and travel. It's not ideal, but better than the alternative. It will be harder to engage local media however. I'm pretty sure the Battlehawks had a weekly coach's show on local r...

Re: How do you save money having teams in Arlington?

What am I missing? If you have all teams in Arlington, and they travel to the cities for games, isn’t that two teams that need to travel to each game. So, instead of travel costs being 4 teams x 10 weeks = travel costs for 40 teams, you have 8 teams x 10 weeks = 80 travel costs, minus five x two te...
