Re: RedBird Capital, Dany Garcia, and The Rock to buy XFL for $15M

It's a little disappointing that someone could buy an entire league for that price. So maybe I can't smell what the Rock is cookin'...... don't know how rich this group is. My expectations are lowered. He's successful with the Titan Games so we'll see

Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

The CFL seems indecisive as to whether they'll give it a go. I've heard anywhere from a truncated season starting in September to no season at all. The Saskatchewan Roughriders have been awarded the 2022 Grey Cup game.....they were to host this year but ..........it'll be a win and host model if the...

Re: So either ESPN is out.............

The XFL does it again .....but this time it wasn't a player who made the grade.....but the announcer, as ABC/ESPN XFL play by play man Steve Levy will be the guy on Monday Night Football when and if there is a season. He will be joined by Brian Griese and Louis Riddick returning MNF to a three man b...

Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

And I understand that. But national syndication is still an explorable option. A company like that, that owns a local station can have it's affilates in every XFL market at least offer television coverage of every road contest for it's team. An option is an option. I believe they have ownership of ...

Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

Sinclair owns "Stadium".....their very own ESPN wannabe. Stadium is a free digital channel available pretty much everywhere. In Seattle.....Sinclair owns KOMO and I would see no gripes about airing a live XFL game on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon in place of Emeril Legasse and his miracle chopper. ...

Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

I'm fascinated by the upcoming auction though to see who this falls to. Some of the potential players say like Sinclair, own a lot of stations but not much in the way of sports properties other than ROH wrestling which has been around since 2002 and bought by Sinclair in 2011. So they'd have a place...

Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

so I wish people would stop arguing about facts and figures and mistrust in government and just wear your damn mask so we can get back. That being said ....be safe. This is the problem though. Nobody seems to care about the actual facts and statistics. Everybody just says wear your damn mask, shut ...

Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

Is it so important to play these games right now though.....I know it's a living for the athletes.....but I think they'd be taken care of if things just took a pause. It just makes no sense to me to stage these games in front of nobody. If fans can't go....why bother? All it does for me is to make m...

Re: XFL Bankruptcy Thread

Whether it returns or not, the things they did made an impact and it will further advance the game of football into a more exciting to watch product. Really wish we could've had at least one overtime session to see how that would've worked. Two years of planning went into five weeks of games that de...

Re: NHL Seattle is the Kraken

I was hoping for "Sockeyes" and thought that was the popular pick.....Kraken was my least favorite....but you get used to things.....like when they started the Mighty Ducks. I won't be in attendance however, nowadays you couldn't pay me to spend time in Seattle. I'd rather have NBA anyway, but they ...
