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:

Re: Interesting Mike Mitchell quotes from the XFL Show: XFL, CFL, USFL

Just as interesting is what WASN'T mentioned, or was glossed over: Anything about an XFL TV deal. We've heard over and over again that the XFL will not move forward without a substantial paying TV deal. What does it say that they're spending all of this time having these in-depth conversations with...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

The arrival of the USFL does make it harder for the XFL to return. That I will acknowledge, but the money issue is still unresolved. Brian Woods doesn't really have all that much. He burned through most of it with the FXFL (around 8-9 million--a tiny sum compared to the tens of millions minimum to ...

Re: Woods, Fox launching USFL in 2022

But they are building small and reducing risk so they can grow into it instead of XFL2.0 or AAF where they got afraid to fund it or ran out of money before they got started. "Got afraid to fund it" my foot. The government(s) literally blocked the XFL from finishing its season, and they st...
