Re: XFL officially delays start until 2023

Have to disagree here MGB, many things were both promised, intimated, and implied by the new XFL ownership group; not so much with the USFL owners. I am not specifically referring to the lack of on field play and yearly start date pushbacks, but more in the communications and engagement areas. The X...

Re: XFL officially delays start until 2023

Tank is right, if 2023 is the goal then things need to begin happening now. 20 months seems like forever for XFL fans but is not a whole lot of time to get an organization up and running, especially with multiple sub organizations (teams). Even if the current XFL ownership group has a "grand pl...

Re: XFL officially delays start until 2023

Let's just hope they don't go into protracted talks with the USFL that ultimately fail, then we can all wait for a focused restart in 2024...or 2025... or....

Re: The Athletic: XFL players to get pennies on the dollar for what they are owed

It's kind of hard to feel badly for the XFL players for not getting paid for games not played! I was employed by a major university's school of medicine on a Friday and laid off unexpectedly the next Monday due to the pandemic, so no tears here. A whole lot of people in the country experienced finan...

Re: TSL QB> CFL - Shea Patterson

You have to be impressed in how the TSL has filled a must needed niche; kudos to the guys moving up!

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

If the USFL is smart and I expect they will be; they will take the same modest building approach of the TSL. It worked once, it could work again; although it will certainly take more capital to make it a real alternate league. IMO, Woods thinks he's on to something - building a business model with h...

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

Woods has made a go of the TSL when others fell by the wayside, so he must be doing something at least partially right. I would expect the TSL to go away eventually and be replaced in some fashion by the USFL. It's hard to knock a guy, whether you like him or not, who has kept a product on the field...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

Who said that the AAF folding and the XFL going bankrupt was the death knell of Spring Football? Seems like we have kinds of leagues trying to get up and running lately. Should be interesting to see how it all plays out.
