Re: XFL - One year after kick off... and waiting

$10 million is not "lucrative" For the sake of posterity, so that we can come back and see whether your reading between the lines was on point or not: at least how much net revenue (that is, taking the cost of production into account) on an annual basis do you think the television contract will nee...

Re: XFL - One year after kick off... and waiting

read the line.... Mike says RedBird wants a Lucrative contract. Agreed, that's what Mike reported and I have full confidence in his reporting. No one in this thread has said anything that runs contrary to that statement. Read between the lines This is where we start running into trouble. Like you s...

Re: CFL 2021(?) All aboot our friends up north

I don't think skipping two seasons is a good option, but asking owners to burn through cash playing a 2021 season in empty stadiums might also be a death blow. Not seeing a lot of good options; definitely hoping they find a way to take the field. And who knows, maybe if the league faces a true recko...

Re: XFL - One year after kick off... and waiting

No one is disputing Mike's reporting. You are saying that XFL ownership isn't investing any more money -- that they expect all new money to come in the form of revenue (TV contract + ticket sales). That article is saying XFL ownership isn't investing any more money in UNTIL the TV contract is in pla...

Re: Spring 2021 FCS: Scouting for the next Donald Parham

Looks like Howard, South Carolina State, and Delaware State will keep playing; they just will count as non-conference games.

Re: CFL 2021(?) All aboot our friends up north

I know US expansion talk is the lowest form of CFL conversation, but I can't help myself. Imagine that they held the Grey Cup on Labour Day weekend and added teams in Seattle, Chicago, and New York. Is that a league whose broadcast rights you could sell in the US for enough to justify cutting the pi...

Re: Spring 2021 FCS: Scouting for the next Donald Parham

Brutal. I was really surprised Howard was hanging in there if Norfolk State was out, just considering that they're in the district. If there was ever a year to scrap conferences and just do an FCS "league" with regional divisions, this would have been it. But that's a total pipe dream. College athle...

Re: XFL - One year after kick off... and waiting

Look, I think it's totally healthy to be skeptical of the league's chances of success, and I definitely think the onus of proof is on the ownership to demonstrate that they're willing to spend the money necessary to make this thing work. But let's not start twisting who is who in this equation. It's...
