Re: G Parks: The cold, hard truth about the hurdles facing XFL 3.0

I think it's TBD if this is 3.0 or 2.1. If they reboot with the same teams, same format, same strategy, and scoop up a lot of the former employees, then it's the next edition of the same version. But that's not yet clear what's happening.

Re: The Rock owned XFL needs to address the Elephant in the room: Social Justice

I mean, they can do whatever they want, but I don't think any sane person is going to presume the XFL is in favor of racism unless they put out a statement. Also, the XFL (the 2020 version, at least) doesn't need to pay lip service to diversity, because it WAS diverse. Black head coaches, black team...

Re: The Rock owned XFL needs to address the Elephant in the room: Social Justice

I think you're vastly overestimating how much pressure the XFL is going to be under. People get worked up over what the NFL does or doesn't do because they're at the top of the food chain.

Market Watch

The Tampa Sports Authority wants Vince McMahon's, the former XFL owner, to pay $90k before consenting 2 pass on the TB Vipers lease at Raymond James Stadium to the new XFL owners, a court filing shows.

Playing. There are players in the WNBA who have opted out to deal with social justice.
I think they'd deal with that the same way they deal with every other situation where a player becomes unavailable. You sign somebody else.

Even if that happens, how does the league deal with players who opt out due to social justice?
