Re: Seattle leading ticket sales?

Second, in the original XFL. Las Vegas, New York and San Francisco had modest at best ticket sales before the season started. SF ended up averaging 33k per game. NY 28k. That is a fair point. The XFL had a lot of haves and have-nots: cities like San Francisco and Vegas were able to maintain or even...

Re: Team Nine has its head coach

Wish they would have hired a young gun to be the nine coach. An also-ran is disappointing. I wonder how many players cut this week will just turn down the team 9 opportunity You need to get a coach that is willing to dedicate all his time in one location. Remember this is an NFL Europe concept. And...

Re: Team Nine has its head coach

Nothing finalized. All this stuff is fluid but there is talk of each team having five designed priority players on Team Nine, with the rosters expanding from 52 to 57 at mid season.

The XFL is going to have to constantly replenish the team nine roster during the season.

Re: Seattle leading ticket sales?

Just some facts. Ignore if you choose to. Most people gloss over details. I have learned that over time. There is no two years of selling tickets. Team locations weren’t in place until December of 2018. Tickets didn’t go on sale until several months after that. Teams have only been selling tickets f...

Re: Seattle leading ticket sales?

As a supporter and follower of the league. You have to be realistic. It’s encouraging that Seattle and STL are doing well because they are. You have to treat this like a first-year league. That’s what the XFL is. Closing the upper bowls suggest that the expectation level isn’t high for first year ti...

Re: "Inside" info on expansion

Like with anything else. Temper your expectations. There’s no truth to a duplication expansion deal in the works. The XFL is going to have peaks and valleys during the season. It will suffer from some first year league blues. Expect that. Don’t expect crazy expansion and lofty rumors of some global ...

Vipers might have the league's worst primary logo and best secondary logo.
I would have flipped it. The fangs would have been cooler on the sleeves or pants of the uniforms.

I could see some of these players heading North of the Border.
45 of the 130 or so players cut will end up on Team Nine. The rest, we will see. We knew this day was coming. The XFL teams are not going to have 70 player rosters.

Re: All the XFL cuts

Not final because of waivers but the list is legit. Each XFL team will have two players that they can put on IR and bring back during the season. For those who have seen the IR list on Draft Diamonds. I was told that DeAngelo Yancey and Tanner Gentry’s injuries are not long term. Still waiting for a...
