Re: Podcast with Red Bird Cap's Rob K. includes some XFL

I can't see them selling off the league as a whole as it would severely limit the number of available prospective buyers. It seems to me, it would only work by selling off the individual franchises as there would be more potential buyers that way, each with a smaller piece of the pie so to speak. Le...

Just tells me that they haven't been able to get all their "ducks in a row" yet. They clearly won't invest without a solid lock on profitabiluty.

Re: This isn't good

Absolutely PATHETIC! I expect way better from FOX and Brock Huard. A pretty dismal start for sure!

Re: G. Parks interview on The_Markcast

The one thing I was never clear about in regards to "international" was, were they referring to international cities with teams or international players in terms of talent. One can only assume they were referring to teams in other countries, at least Mexico and Canada; not much else would ...

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...

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