Re: SI: Dany Garcia Has Big Plans for the XFL

I just hope that it does not become so player-centric that the fans get left in the weeds. Ultimately, the fans will spell success or failure for the League; we buy the merch, we put rear ends in the seats, we watch games we cannot attend on TV, and we talk up the League. Fans, first and foremost! ...

Re: Dwayne Johnson & Dany Garcia to appear on VICE TV tonight

I don't see the issue, they're not telling players to kneel. They're giving them the option to do as they please, nothing wrong with that. When I played high school football we had a minute of silence before we left the locker room. Some prayed silently, some not so silently, some just twiddled thei...

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

Big Deal Fox signed a deal with TSL. ESPN once owned part of the Arena Football League and they barely gave it any coverage on their shows. TSL is merely filler as there's no hockey, or basketball being played in its traditional season. Why shouldn't the Rock be humble and say this is challenging? I...

Re: The Spring League is playing in the Alamodome on FS1

And the ratings will be lower than the high school gymnastics championship on espn 2. The TSL is a non issue. If I wanted to watch guys pay to play football there's tons of semipro leagues in local parks you could check out.

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

[/quote] Wow... Good luck with that DG/Rock. No wonder Fox signed up with TSL. This isn't going anywhere. Maybe they purchased it as a PR move. Joker's comments are spot on. [/quote] $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 q...

Re: TSL gets TV deal - but XFL can't? Wow!

I also think this whole "momentum" argument is overrated. The leagues highest rated game in week 5 drew 1.5 million viewers in a country of 330 million. Literally 99%+ of the population couldn't care less and have already forgotten about the league. As I stated before, several of my friends thorough...

Re: TSL gets TV deal - but XFL can't? Wow!

Remember the ungodly amount of money the UFL and AAF lost by playing before all their ducks were in order. You don't just sign multi-million dollar deals with Pepsi, Budweiser, Geico, etc. overnight. These deals take months and months of back and forth, probably even more now with Covid. There's no ...

Re: TSL gets TV deal - but XFL can't? Wow!

FS1 may be a proper sports channel, but how will production value look? Will we be getting big name commentators. As for network ownership, I wouldn't put much into that. ESPN owns like 20% of MLL and when was the last time you saw any clips on Sportscenter. Heck ESPN owned part of the AFL in 2007 a...

Re: TSL gets TV deal - but XFL can't? Wow!

It's zero risk for Fox. They won't pay a penny to televise the games and will be relegated to cable. TSL players have to PAY to be in the league. This is like watching a glorified scrimmage, I'd be surprised if the games average 200k viewers

Re: Press Release: XFL Announces Return to the Field in 2022

The announcement was picked up by many media outlets and even the crumudgeon Mike Florio is looking forward to its return. Mcmahon is looked at as a dinosaur by most folk and is laughed at Major media. The Rock is nearly universally loved and if even a fraction of his Twitter followers watch the lea...
