Re: Team names for San Antonio, Las Vegas and Orlando?

It'd be easy to move Vipers from TB to Orlando and Wildcats from LA to San Antonio (not sure that moniker would fit LV). And bring the Outlaws back to Vegas - though there may have been a semi-pro team using that name at some point? I also acknowledge the reality that none of this will actually hap...

Re: Team names for San Antonio, Las Vegas and Orlando?

We all remember that Orlando's WFL team was the Florida Blazers, right? I'm all for bringing back old brands, but as the USFL has demonstrated, that is probably going to be accompanied by a lawsuit or two.

Re: USFL has reached out to cities and will play games in cities according to report

Based on the performance of the one in-market team they have, I think we can say that a healthy USFL team will be able to average more than 10K.

Re: New details about USFL contracts show players may not be able to leave even if picked up and cut by an nfl

I'm not a lawyer, but it seems like they're trying to have their cake and eat it too. NFL won't work with any players under contract elsewhere, so this contract gives the USFL player a way out. But the contract reactivates once the player is cut by the NFL? Doesn't that sort of mean that the player ...

Supposedly, it was shooting the 30 for 30 that gave him the itch again.

XFL 1.0 had plenty of steak; the sizzle just burned too many food critics.

It was clearly a passion project for McMahon, but I think it's fair to say that the root of the passion was in promoting live entertainment rather than football itself.

I don't think Legion's going to look very good, but I'm looking forward to the change of scenery.

Re: Murdoch says fox plans on building up and selling teams for the next 5-7 years

I would interpret "small local teams" to mean that they are in market.

I'm curious what he means by "small." It's going to be a very interesting off season for the USFL.

Re: Xfl partial hub

Agreed. Better than the USFL. Worse than XFL 2.0. Good day to be a Renegades fan, as they'll enjoy a not insignificant competitive advantage. Going to really suck for the two teams that don't play a game in Dallas at all. I wonder if this impacts the divisional set up at all. You could slightly redu...
