Re: XFL not funding CFL return to play...

FCF is a glorified offseason fantasy project, nothing more. If it ever becomes real serious all the sudden you're going to have real costs that come with it (we saw how that worked with Fanchise in the past), so no need to blow it up into a thing. In a sense, though, that's what most offseason foot...

Re: XFL not funding CFL return to play...

I recall mentioning that 2022 is going to be an absolutely horrible year for the XFL to try and relaunch. You'll have to deal not only with a longer NFL season but with the Olympics, not to mention the glut of college basketball action that exists every year at that time. (I'll argue to an extent th...

Re: CFL postpones start; "target date" is now 8/5

They made their decision last year.

If they cancel again, there is zero reason to ever assume conditions will be better than they are now. It's literally NOW or NEVER. Choose wisely.

Re: TSL News Thread

Woods has come a long way from the FXFL, which got some play on Mike and Mike (Golic Jr. played for the Brawlers) and had some syndication but that's about it, give him that. Yes he has - he's learned alot. FXFL was a good concept but even there he over spent. It should have been a local league wit...

Re: TSL News Thread

Thanks for the update, I didn't realize the IFL was still in business. I wonder why the CFL is coming to Billings and Capser rather than the IFL again? CIF is a little smaller budget, making it a better fit for some of these smaller markets like Casper and Billings. IFL is making another push at be...

Re: More news that MLSE (CFL-Toronto) is Driving talks

MLSE has zero pull in the CFL. another b.s theory from arash. MLSE hasn't been properly run ever and even more so the teams they operate have fallen apart since the teachers pension sold off stake in these properties and the Labatt/Carling beer companies gave up interest in these larger proprietors...

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

The regular season deals were all negotiated by the conferences individually and the deal for the FCS playoffs was negotiated separately with the NCAA. The SWAC was on ESPN3, some others were on ESPN+, others were on an entirely different platform (like the CAA on FloSports). It wasn't all part of ...

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

So let me get this straight: no non-HBCU games on ESPN3 (all on ESPN+) in the regular season, and now they shift it to ESPN3 for the playoffs? That's, um, inconsistent to put it mildly. Not really, since ESPN has rights (or de facto anyway) to the playoffs, whereas regular season games that were ai...

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

Not quite FCS, but NCAA spring football nonetheless: D3 powerhouse Mount Union also has a game tonight against Heidelberg for their conference championship (OAC). MU's Purple Raiders are 3-0 (with one cancellation from Baldwin-Wallace). You can watch it online here: https://boxcast.tv/view/football...
