Re: Dany Garcia: "We are months from hitting the field..."

The problem is that it's too late to secure a TV contract for this season at this point, unless they're going to buy the airtime (BAD IDEA). Remember that XFL 2.0 lined up and announced their TV deal in May 2019, which is when the TV networks unveil their schedules. The networks released their sche...

Re: XFL Content Plan Deliverable 6/4/21

To be more precise, a zoom-in shows "Content Plan AND Deliverables" (basically this is a 32-page pitch for the business side of things based on where they stand now).

Re: Dany Garcia: "We are months from hitting the field..."

Perhaps they can play a mini season of 6 games using a hybrid of XFL-CFL rules before the merger/partnership happens. With Redbirds new acquire I'm sure the Television and streaming talk will start heating up now. The problem is that it's too late to secure a TV contract for this season at this poi...

Re: Article: Did the new spring FL get permission to use the USFL name?

I think he confused the rights to the tape library with the rights to the names and is now trying to save face. Right. I believe Mike Tollin owns the USFL tape library. (He did the Small Potatoes documentary for 30 for 30.) There's some copyrighted material in there that won't expire until a centur...

Re: Semi OT: Travis Toivonen

Cool! Toivonen really stood out in the FCF and I'm glad that he's getting a shot with the big league.

Re: Dany Garcia: "We are months from hitting the field..."

From Mike M and others on XFLnewshub and the_markcast - it's 2023 despite this potentially misleading comment, per twitter , podcasts and radio shows https://twitter.com/the_markcast/status/1402377328345247744 XFLNH has been wrong before (hence why they poached Mitchell from here)... and nothing in...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

This could be a huge game changer in the XFL-CFL talks. Let's see the USFL match this. https://www.google.com/amp/s/sports.yahoo.com/amphtml/nfl-executive-kevin-laforce-leaving-095558067.html Interesting, if perhaps disturbing, quote from the story: RedBird also owns French soccer club Toulouse FC ...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

Oh well....is there anyone here who remembers the original league anyway? It's a cool branding so why not? It's been forty years. But the notion of two competing spring leagues competing for the limited available watchable talent seems zany. It feels as though it's really gonna launch this time tho...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

If the USFL is smart and I expect they will be; they will take the same modest building approach of the TSL. It worked once, it could work again; although it will certainly take more capital to make it a real alternate league. IMO, Woods thinks he's on to something - building a business model with ...

Re: No mention of the beer snake?

The beer snake lives on in Buffalo (which had quite a few Defenders fans last year). Spotted at the Blue Jays game:
