Re: The Rock owned XFL needs to address the Elephant in the room: Social Justice

I just can't see a player signed by the XFL "opting out" of playing in an alt league for a shot at the NFL. Would a MiLB player do that?

Re: Top Two Cities for Expansion (and their names)

Ok, to add to the speculation, I choose the Birmingham Iron (assuming it can be used) and the SF Earthquakes or just plain Quakes.

Re: Top Two Cities for Expansion (and their names)

Call me crazy but I say SF and Birmingham,; Birmingham will bend over backwards with some sweet deals for the XFL IMO.

Re: Will the XFL play in a Covid free bubble?

What the NFL and other major sports leagues can't or won't realize is that their "wokeness" threatens to turn off (and subsequently tune out) fans end masse. Regardless of your political leanings or views on the current protests, the average fan enjoys his favorite sport as a escapist diversion to t...

I don't know about a COVID free bubble but I sure hope that they play in a Political and Protest free bubble!

Re: What changes do you hope new ownership brings?

This is a great topic for certain. I also prefer the Fox style broadcasts and hope to see it continue. I like the concept of the OT rule but need to see it more in action to be sure. I really like the kickoffs but not too keen on the punt one. I may be alone on this next one but I would like to see ...

Re: Cheerleaders and/or Mascots by year 3?

The fans don't need cheerleaders, they are an annoying distraction IMO. I am ambivalent about mascots but really don't like cheerleaders in professional sports. They are fine for high school and college but not the pros.

Re: Dragon News

If the new ownership decides to re-align the league in some fashion or even downsize it, I am certain that Seattle will remain an integral part. I am excited to see what the new ownership's vision for the XFL is. I am not a WWE fan so I don't know what the relationship is between the Rock and Vince ...

Re: RedBird Capital, Dany Garcia, and The Rock to buy XFL for $15M

A 2021 bubble season would be fun for sure; that said, I wouldn't mind them taking 2021 off to get things back in place as a reasonable facsimile of XFL 2.0 if necessary. Either way, I'm jazzed that it's at least possible that the XFL can return, I hope they don't get gimmicky with it and innovate n...
