Re: XFL players signing with NFL teams tracker

K Giorgio Tavecchio was released by Tennessee's practice squad. Jets K Sam Ficken was placed on IR, paving the way for Sergio Castillo to finish out the year for New York. GP great job keeping up on these player moves. I'll say this I'm impressed, but not really surprised that XFL players can compe...

Re: TSL season’s end another black eye for secondary football leagues

Even though I think 4th&long's incessant handwringing over XFL 3.0 is totally over the top, I agree that the burden of proof is always on ownership to prove that they have the money and the willingness to spend it to execute their vision. XFL 2.0 was unique in that they had an owner who had done th...

Re: TSL season’s end another black eye for secondary football leagues

As a follow-up, here's a story from XFLNewsHub about the end of TSL's regular season, including a statement from the UFPA: https://xflnewshub.com/the-spring-league/why-the-spring-league-ended-early-and-ufpa-involvement/ And they link to an Athletic article (subscription required) by Daniel Kaplan, ...

Re: TSL season’s end another black eye for secondary football leagues

I would say normally I'd be fine taking someone like Woods at his word, but I'm not sure he's earned that given his previous football ventures and some other questionable moves he's made in the past that have been documented on this board. Bottom line, there were issues beyond COVID here, as eviden...

Re: XFL players signing with NFL teams tracker

I'd actually prefer to see the Rock turn his XFL.into an indoor league to replace the old AFL. It's got NFL markets....all of them have major arenas.....the game is fast and entertaining.....and I miss it. It's a void that can't be filled by the tiny markets of the IFL. Do we really need another ou...

Re: PJ Walkers first NFL start

I definitely don't think that one start is enough to somehow make him a contender for the QB1 job in Carolina in 2021. (Walker is on a 2-year deal.) I do think it could cement the QB2 job for him ahead of Will Grier, which is nothing to sneeze at. It's one game. He won - thats a big positive for th...

Re: CFL 2021(?) All aboot our friends up north

The EE Football Team -- formerly known as the Eskimos -- are soliciting suggestions for a new team name: https://www.esks.com/name Maybe the Edmonton Elk? Indigenous to Alberta, and obviously something that starts with an E lets you keep the logo. They had said they were staying with eskimos as the...
