neutral site games/barnstorming team?

Just another food for thought debate: Would the league ever consider playing neutral site games featuring some of their lower-attendance teams? Not so much to supplemental that team's ticket sales, but to build excitement in other markets and perhaps dip their toe is certain cities. Say have a Wildc...

Re: Possible post season for XFL?

May as well consider the season over. Sports won't start up again until June at this rate. No chance they play games at that time.

Re: BREAKING: Season canceled.

The model was basically the same, it was just undercapitalized and less well executed. Sort of like Charlie Weis running Bill Belichek's playbook at Kansas. Seems like they never intended to make a serious run at a lucrative TV deal, though, given the markets they chose. Even with better funding I ...

Re: Possible post season for XFL?

Imo if they held a playoff it would have to be a three week 8 team playoff.. do it down in Houston at a central site if need be. End the season the way the began it Venue availability is a big reason why I don't see the league making any changes to the schedule. I suppose venues schedules could cha...

Re: a legit expansion rumor?

I hope Chicago gets a team just to see GDAWG's brain explode. But if mainstream sports media or Mike Mitchell's not reporting it, I'm not taking it at face value. Chicago is a bad idea because it has never proven to support alternative football. That has been my issue with Chicago. What makes the X...

Re: BREAKING: Season canceled.

Player travel expenses back home are also being covered by the league. They're handling this as best as one could hope for.

Re: Players who sign contracts with the nfl

I forget where I heard this but I'm about 90% sure, yes, teams retain player rights.

Re: BREAKING: Season canceled.

Classy move paying everyone's base and benefits. Bravo. So glad I made it to a game. Can't wait for 2021. I was really worried about this. I'm sure losing the season will hit Vince's pocketbook far harder than he ever anticipated, but glad he saw the necessity of this. One of the biggest symbols of...

Re: Coronavirus & XFL
