Re: Great article on the TV innovations for XFL games

It will be busy in the editing room. Integrating live audio is a pain, even with a short time delay, due to the offensive nature in which people tend to talk when pushing themselves to perform their best. High tension moments could lead to some fines. I'm sure the audio feeds will be minimal due to...

Re: Pat McAfee working for the XFL part time

The sideline job is difficult. Pat McAfee is having reservations about the role. That’s why Cole Cubelic has been hired to take his spot when McAfee is off. I think he can be what ESPN had hoped Booger McFarland would be for Monday Night Football , not necessarily the kind of guy who interviews the...

Re: Prediction: XFL will be rebranded

I wrote about this back in 2018 on this site. Vince McMahon filed two trademarks back in 2017. The United Football League and the UrFL, as in ‘your football league’. The XFL was almost not the XFL. I did not know that... that's an interesting wrinkle. I wonder if Ebersol's pitch to buy the XFL bran...

Re: Team Nine officially announced, roster set

https://www.xfl.com/en-US/teams/team9/team-9-articles/team-9-dallas Lots of detail in this article, including the roster at the bottom. Team rosters will expand to 57 halfway through the year, which explains a previous article that mentioned all 40 team nine players will be on rosters by then. I’m ...

Re: Four things we need to happen when the XFL returns

I am happy that the current XFL is nothing like the original XFL. The only thing XFL 2020 shares in spirit with the original besides the name is innovation. We are going to see plenty of that again with audio/video and the overall presentation. It’s in the rules already. There will be some sort of t...

The only chance that the XFL gets rebranded is if Alpha Entertainment sells the league and the new own...
