Re: Interesting XFL-related notes in Tyree Jackson story

I'm sure DC and Dallas were under pressure to play the Joneses, since they were contributing from a marketing standpoint. And Cardale Jones definitely turned out some OSU fans in DC. Doesn't make it any less frustrating. I remember the video the XFL put together of Pep and Cardale working together b...

Re: CFL Week 1

Must have been a frustrating night to be a Lions fan. First was the quarterback weirdness, with Reilly being announced as the starter, not starting, coming into the game at halftime, and then not finishing. Second was the kicking -- Lions lost by 4, and the kicker missed at least one mid range field...

CFL Week 1

I will definitely lose interest once we get to CFB Week 0, but in the meantime, I am excited to check out the long awaited return of the CFL. Here are the games; I assume/hope they will all be on ESPN+/ESPN3 in the US: Thu 8:30 ET TiCats @ Bombers Fri 9:30 ET Lions @ Riders Sat 7:00 ET Argos @ Stamp...

Re: BUFFALO BILLS possible move - Austin #1 target

I think there's little chance the Bills relocate to Austin. But if they did leave, the big hurdle for an XFL team would be the weather, assuming the season remains in Feb-Apr. It would actually make a lot more sense for CFL expansion, if we were operating in a world where they aspired to grow.

Re: USFL - XFLnewshub article by Mike M

Most newsworthy bits, IMO: Several sources have indicated to me the genuine possibility that because of the short amount of time remaining for the USFL to set up shop in markets before their 2022 season, and for financial reasons, that the league could decide to play in an expanded hub city model ne...

Re: San Antonio group approaches USFL

Are we reading this as Morris wants to own and operate the team?

Re: CFL to implement revenue sharing

It's not supposed to prove anything and it's obviously not supposed to bring in extra revenue. It's just a measure to improve league stability. And given that the AFL figured this out in the 1960s, a long overdue one at that.

Re: CFL Argo's could leave CFL for US based league

Also, in our new XFL vs. USFL slapfight, poaching THE ACTUAL TORONTO ARGONAUTS completely blows "secures the rights to the old USFL names and logos" out of the water. Holy shit.

Regardless, the next CFL offseason is going to be bonkers.

Re: CFL Argo's could leave CFL for US based league

I think the Argos getting out of the CFL would probably be much more complicated than getting into the XFL. There's plenty of ways to slice MLSE and XFL joining forces, but if everyone is on board then I don't see why it would be too hard to pull off. But getting out of the CFL would surely trigger ...
