Re: Dany Garcia: "We are months from hitting the field..."

With the XFL/Redbird signing big time NFL and ESPN executives this gives them a lot more clout in regards to a television contract. As for the 365 programming, I'm all in favor. Will I watch most or even any of it, probably not. However, to build a fanbase it needs to be more than just football. We ...

Re: Article: Did the new spring FL get permission to use the USFL name?

This reminds me of George Romero and his Living Dead franchise. The guy was a mastermind and his first 3 films were instrumental in bringing zombie lore to the mainstream. However, he never did copyright the franchise and to this day there's indy producers every few years making low budget "seq...

Re: Dany Garcia: "We are months from hitting the field..."

Perhaps they can play a mini season of 6 games using a hybrid of XFL-CFL rules before the merger/partnership happens. With Redbirds new acquire I'm sure the Television and streaming talk will start heating up now.

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

Don't know I agree with that. I mean the XFL is pretty much just assets right now as is the USFL for that manner. The XFL is a collection of used uniforms and a handful of executives on zoom meetings. They're not wrong in their summation, and we still don't know what the overall intentions are. I'd ...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

This could be a huge game changer in the XFL-CFL talks. Let's see the USFL match this. https://www.google.com/amp/s/sports.yahoo.com/amphtml/nfl-executive-kevin-laforce-leaving-095558067.html Already posted in in XFL discussion in separate thread.

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

If/when the XFL/CFL make a joint announcement on inter-league play I don't see any other league, outside the lower indoor rungs making it. With the CFL history and Redbird's money the sky is the limit. While being on network television is ideal, I'm perfectly find watching games on Amazon, Yes Netwo...

Re: USFL BUZZZZZZZ: M Mitchell, Doug Flutie, FOX PR its ONNN

The USFL has been brought out of retirement at least 3x in the past 35 years. They're trying to be like the AAF and rush a season to stave off the XFL. Look at how good that did Ebersol and the AAF. The XFL and CFL are still actively talking, both sides have admitted as much. If Woods actually pays ...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

USFL coming online. XFL is asleep. Good thing they have those helmet walls. I don't agree, the XFL is trying to build a multimillion high rise with pent houses and the whole 9 yards. In my NJ shore town a building like that took nearly 10 years to develop and is now 90% sold at an average of $3 mil...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

This will be a big nothing burger. No way woods signs quality players at bargain prices and doesn't have the clout or credibility of the Rock and Redbird. Fix being all in means we'll air some games with minimal promotion and take all the add revenue. No different than the countless indoor leagues ...
