Re: What would an XFL-CFL merged league look like...

and Mike Mitchell reporting that 2022 is not happening. That's not what he did. He wrote a column where the headline was literally "Strong possibility XFL does not return to play in 2022," and said that not returning in 2022 is a "logical conclusion" to draw. Meaning it's his op...

Re: What would an XFL-CFL merged league look like...

https://twitter.com/DannyAustin_9/status/1380762184146321410 This seems like one of the more concrete reports we've seen on the topic, and even then there are not a lot of answers. It's been almost a month since it was announced publicly the XFL and CFL were talking. I think most of us assume the t...

Re: As predicted Canadian press love affair with the "Rock" is on the rocks

Nothing about this in the local media. It’s all the rage up north. American media has written off the XFL... They need to do something before they come back to the table. It's not just that: When has the American media ever cared about the CFL, aside from when big-name former NFL players go there? ...

Re: What would an XFL-CFL merged league look like...

Here is what is happening with the CFL/XFL meetings: CFL team presidents and ownership reps are pairing up with XFL reps. They are *discussing* how a merger might look. Might mean teams playing on both sides of border. Might not. XFL reps want to know more about global efforts. https://twitter.com/...

Re: Rumored details revealed on cfl/xfl merger

Our insider can clarify, but I'm interpreting "elite QB's that aren't going to be drafted in the 1st or 2nd rounds" to mean elite prospects, which Wilson was not. I certainly agree that Wilson has proven to be an elite NFL quarterback. But if we're defining it that way, then that somehow ...

Rumored details revealed on cfl/xfl merger

And is it 5 or 6 out of 52, or it is supposed to mirror the CFL ratio, where 21 out of 46 need to be Canadian? No no, my point had nothing to do with the CFL. As I said in my initial post, I would've preferred teritorial selections like in XFL1.0, where there were far fewer slots for those players.

Rumored details revealed on cfl/xfl merger

I get the complaints about the competitive balance being affected, though I truly wonder how much it would affect things if it were just five or six players out of a 52-man roster. If you wanted to ensure balance, you could make only those at certain positions eligible to be protected, or cap the ex...

Rumored details revealed on cfl/xfl merger

I don't really know what to do with most this, but I will say one of the two things I wish XFL 2.0 had kept from XFL 1.0, along with the receivers in forward motion pre-snap, is the idea of territorial selections. Oliver Luck made a good point that some territories have stronger colleges than others...

Re: CFL fans should brace themselves for change

I came across an interesting Q&A that could be relevant to the "NFL to Canada" discussion here. It's about NFL expanding into Europe, but I think it could apply to the discussion on Canada as well. This is from Vic Ketchman's website (askvic.us) where he does Q&A from fans (Ketchma...

Re: Will the XFL lift their finger from the pause button?

The lack of communication by the new owners directly, or through the media, is what has allowed all kinds of wild scenarios, conspiracy theories, accusations, and even some reasonable speculation to commence. Now, they are entirely within their rights to keep things under wraps and not let what they...
