Re: Potential XFL Head Coaches for 2022- Help Me Toss Some Names In A Hat Here

I think the best way to look forward is to look back and ask ourselves, "where do secondary leagues get their head coaches?" If we look at XFL 2020, the AAF, and even XFL 2001 as a guide since they're all the same size secondary leagues, we notice a few things: -Of the 24 head coaches in those leag...

Re: TV Rights deals - Gen discussion

Tangentially related, but the WWE just sold the U.S. distribution of its streaming service to NBC/Peacock for a cool $1 billion. This is a great move for WWE as their customer base for their own network had stagnated with no real signs that would change anytime soon. Content continues to be king.

Re: XFL Seeks Chief Football Officer

They won't go to far w/o a contract in hand, might be why they have not found someone to fill this position yet, either they are waiting or the candidates aren't sold yet. They're probably still vetting candidates before they even hand out offers lol I'm thinking it's candidates vetting XFL 3.0 I’m...

Re: TV Rights deals - Gen discussion

Sports Business Journal reported today that NBCSN is shutting down and moving its major sports (NASCAR, NHL, etc.) to the USA Network. Not sure how serious NBC would've been in bidding on the XFL TV rights, but this seems to take away a potential bidder unless they want to keep compiling sports prop...

Re: XFL Seeks Chief Football Officer

One other thing to point out RE: Brandon: The Bills are considered a small-market team when it comes to the NFL and he had a lot of experience running the business and marketing end for quite a while - Buffalo has a strong fanbase and attendance hardly wavered even during the lean years. Compared to...

Re: XFL Seeks Chief Football Officer

I grew up in Western New York so I'm familiar with Brandon's time with the Bills. He seemed to do very well with the organization in business aspects, but the longer he was there the more his responsibilities expanded; I'm not so sure he was as successful in those endeavors. Plus, he left the organi...

Re: San Antonio, TX- XFL Expansion/Relocation Discussion Bonanza

I guess I didn't realize Globe Life Park was so old (frequent name changes will do that to stadiums). I thought aesthetically it looked good on TV for XFL games, and liked how it looked "different" from other stadiums.
