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

Plenty of mouthpieces making a point right now, some are accurate, and some are devilish. Madani makes a few good points, but he has an axe to grind and is trying to stir the pot, and that is an evil motive. Meanwhile, Dave Naylor is trying to be realistic and pragmatic in claiming the CFL and XFL j...

Re: XFL abandons Roughneck logos

FYI, no league statement on this. I have asked.

You’d think the league would have an official statement on losing team branding for Houston.

Re: If the CFL XFL merger takes place Do you want 3 down football or 4 down football?

I love three-down football, but I’m sure a merged league will play four-down ball... and I will be disappointed.

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

CFL doesn’t need The Rock to save it. The CFL will play this year, and some teams may lose money. But the league will be back next year.

Apparently the Rock needs the CFL to save the XFL.

Who has the upper hand?

Rumored details revealed on cfl/xfl merger

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

Hoping I won't be trashed for defending what some perceive as a lie, but I believe the new owners thought they could do it in 2022 when they made the announcement last fall. The only issue seems to be that they did not have a clue what they were up against. Maybe they should not have bought the leag...

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

With some sort of CFL merger talks going on, the XFL has declared their previously announced 2022 season was on “pause.” Does anyone think this may be temporary, and depending on the results of the talks with the CFL the XFL will resume their 2022 plans? I hope it’s temporary, but I’m afraid the wr...

Re: Canadian News: Fearmongers too quick on draw - Some rumours surrounding possible CFL/XFL partnership simply silly

The XFL put their planning on “pause”. They did not say no to 2022. Of course, they can’t pause it too long otherwise the 2022 window will slip away.
