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

I agree that it doesn't hurt anyone but it certainly offends and annoys many. I watch football for the same reason we go to the movies, a former of escapism that let's us forget about the daily grind that sometimes is life. I truly enjoy the athleticism, the competition, the ability to root for our ...

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

In a league likely filled with Has-Beens and Wannabes, why on Earth would you announce that kneeling, or any other form of social protest for that matter, is OK before you have even launched (or re-launched depending upon how you see it)? Personally, I liked the 2.0 approach where it was ALL about f...

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

WOW, I can't believe the negativity on the board lately. I for one choose to have hope and belief that the owners can and will make this happen.

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

We run the risk of being victims of our own impatience! To me, the TSL deal is basically filler and who knows how long those negotiations have been going on - possibly pre-XFL deal? Based on their popularity, reputations, knowledge, and bank accounts, I'd hazard a guess that the XFL ownership is a w...

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

Tank is right, it was their only realistic and viable option. Trying to cobble something together for this next Spring would have been a mistake IMO a false start would certainly have been fatal. That said, 4th&Long's point about engagement is correct but must be handled differently. The new ownersh...
