Re: How's everyone doing?

I know the amateur collegiate summer baseball leagues, which don't rely on ticket revenue as much, are aiming for a mid-June reopening around here, which is realistic given it's a rural area and fewer cases means better chance of extirpating the virus here. I hadn't heard this. Any leagues in parti...

Re: How's everyone doing?

Disgusted by the league going down, and equally pissed about the whole Covid situation. It’s hard to see any silver lining in this. We are still in a place where we can hope the rest of the sports world will not be affected, but it may be naive to think that other leagues and/or teams will not fold...

How's everyone doing?

I'm a little surprised how little discussion there's been about the league's possible demise, considering how active the board was during the season. I realize we all have bigger things to worry about right now, but just checking how everyone is processing things. Frankly, I don't know what to think...

Sources: league explored relocating three teams

San Antonio was reportedly explored as an option. Any ides who the three teams could've been? New York and LA seem unlikely if only because of the TV value. I doubt they'd want three Texas teams, so maybe they were exploring moving the Renegades or Roughnecks? https://news4sanantonio.com/news/local/...

Geez what was he paying these guys or was that for a two year contract.
I'm assuming two year contract. Given the season (would have) just ended the coaches wouldn't have had many paychecks remaining this league year.

Re: XFL Files for Bankruptcy

In case anyone needed confirmation, the declaration submitted to the court by Jeffery Pollack makes it crystal clear: the pandemic is what killed the league. The league estimates it lost out on $27 million by losing half the regular season, to make no mention of the playoffs. That, coupled with the ...

Re: XFL's Future

XFL files for Chapter 11. That seems.... not good.

Interestingly it lists coaches as some of the creditors.

Re: XFL's Future

I don't know what to think about the first two, but if things bounce back and there's someone eager to pay for the broadcast rights, I could definitely see them firing up the engines again. But those are two huge ifs. This is my position. And it's why I think the league hasn't made any official ann...

Re: XFL Terminates All Employees

If true then the league is almost back to square one. Still, I doubt the league makes any "official" announcement on foldin...

Re: XFL Terminates All Employees

About 99% chance there's no 2021 season at this point. Hard to quantify how things look beyond that but certainly not good.
