Re: XFL 2022 season on Hold Pending CFL conversations

Lol, comparing the CFL to Blockbuster Video. You are reaching for something and grabbing air.

Re: XFL 2022 season on Hold Pending CFL conversations

The CFL is essentially 5 feet into a 6 foot grave, Covid sped up the process, but the league was dying a slow death long before that. The CFL has survived a world war, and has literally out-lasted dozens of other football leagues including two XFLs. Ambrosie seems to want to buddy-up with The Rock,...

Re: XFL 2022 season on Hold Pending CFL conversations

CFL season is not “on hold” pending a conversation.

Big difference.

Re: XFL In Talks With CFL, Will Continue Planning for 2022 Once Discussions Leave Preliminary Stage

Not on the XFL twiiter site, that's just some guy's comment. On the XFL official Twitter it says 2022 on HOLD. https://twitter.com/XFL2022 I spoke to a highly-placed XFL source today. They were clear to say that the XFL2022 season is on "pause." They were very clear to point this out.

Re: XFL In Talks With CFL, Will Continue Planning for 2022 Once Discussions Leave Preliminary Stage

I have no idea what this is and how it will benefit either partner. Different seasons, different rules, different countries. Mind you, same pool of players and coaches. On social, CFL fans are going nuts right now. They are expecting a season soon, and the hope was the pandemic will lessen enough fo...

From the #XFL head office: Planning for the 2022 XFL season has been paused to focus on the conversation with the #CFL.

Also, look for more information in upcoming social media posts.

Re: Bob Stoops Not Returning to XFL, Taking FS1 Role

Bob Stoops moving on? I don’t blame him. He has plenty to offer. Stoops was a major draw for XFL2020 If the XFL wanted to bring him back they would have to make him a good offer. Luck was able to do this in 2019. I wonder if the new XFL would try, or would they go elsewhere for a HC? I think we all ...

Re: When do we know more?

The official plan is for the league to play next year. That official message is from last October. Since then there has not been any update on football operations. I personally haven’t declared it dead. But, I wonder, if it isn’t dead why aren’t there any messages from the league. They are there! Of...
