Re: Top Two Cities for Expansion (and their names)

If you want actual attendance I can't think of worse places to put a team than SF and MIA. You should be in football-mad markets: San Antonio, OKC, Buffalo if it wasn't so cold, though you did have a team in NYC. I agree, especially on Miami. Miami doesn't support any sports teams except when the H...

Re: Will the XFL play in a Covid free bubble?

I don't know about a COVID free bubble but I sure hope that they play in a Political and Protest free bubble! ^ POST OF THE YEAR! I'm not very optimistic with Garcia's posts about Kamala Harris and Johnson's posts about Jacob Blake, George Floyd, etc. Either Pollack will have to talk some sense int...

If the CFL folds, one wonders if the NFL would consider the Big 3 Canadian cities?
I think a Toronto team would be inevitable for the NFL if the CFL doesn't survive.

Re: What changes do you hope new ownership brings?

Teams being allowed to choose their conversion attempt level in OT like they are after touchdowns. I don't like this at all. The whole point of the OT format is that neither team has an advantage whether they go first or second. This gives the second team the advantage of knowing what they need. Te...

Re: RedBird Capital, Dany Garcia, and The Rock to buy XFL for $15M

Spoke w/ Dany Garcia, one of three investors buying the XFL. Plan is to play in 2021, she said, possibly in a bubble. Garcia will hold an executive role with the league. Asked about other leadership, she noted "excellent" people who are or were in place for XFL 2.0. - Kevin Seifert https://twitter....

I think a 2021 bubble season makes a lot of sense for a lot of different reasons. But it will be a huge undertaking.
I think they could start it a bit later than the 2020 season. Maybe a March or April launch of the league in a Houston bubble.

Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

so I wish people would stop arguing about facts and figures and mistrust in government and just wear your damn mask so we can get back. That being said ....be safe. This is the problem though. Nobody seems to care about the actual facts and statistics. Everybody just says wear your damn mask, shut ...

Re: NHL Seattle is the Kraken

A lot of people are shitting on the design (they always will), but I like it a lot. It looks like an XFL logo, and I mean that in a good way. Very modern and I love the colors. Hopefully Seattle can watch them and the Dragons playing in the near future.

Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

Interested suitors came from both the media/entertainment and pro sports worlds, and offers reportedly were for the entire league (as opposed to for select assets). https://www.axios.com/xfl-takeover-bids-c366593e-207c-497e-b32d-b9a276189b0b.html I'm fully aboard the hype train at this point.
