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

Personally I don’t see the need to go out of their way to send some kind of statement on social justice. As others have mentioned, the XFL already is diverse and no rational person would accuse the XFL of being pro racism.

Stick to “for the love of football” as your message.

Re: Is Vince McMahon trying to covertly buy his own bankrupt XFL?

2021 is very likely off the table even if the league comes back. Remember, he would have to basically start from (almost) scratch again. New staff, coaches, players, vendors etc.

But hey, maybe we can hold out hope for 2022!!

Re: Game Thread: St. Louis BattleHawks @ DC Defenders Sun 8-Mar-20 3PM ET on FS1

Ratings for this game are going to be terrible. Combine: 1) a boring game 2) a beautiful day weather wise in the north east 3) FS1 And you have a recipe for very low tv ratings. Hope I am wrong but social media engagement seems to back me up. I was out and about myself. Took my 2-year-old daughter ...

At least they admitted the mistake and there were consequences.

This is about all you could hope for in the aftermath of what happened. A real shame as the game was otherwise very entertaining and competitive.

Re: XFL Pick Em

Didn’t get my picks in on time again. Would’ve been

Houston - 4
St Louis - 3
Tampa - 2
Dallas - 1

Obviously NY won which I would happily take instead of a pick em point any day! I did take them +7 :D

Re: Coronavirus & XFL

This is not what the XFL needs either for attendance numbers or publicity wise. In all honesty this is a CenturyLink Stadium issue impacting the XFL or any tenant (Sounders game up next). I wonder if anyone the vendor interacts with on a known basis is also diagnosed - personal, co-woorkers, etc......
