Probably not until a few days beforehand.

Re: Announcing our #XFL2020 broadcast partners:

Another note: No primetime games on national tv (except for Thursday night games in weeks 9 and 10) good call from the XFL there. Love the schedule and it's consistency! The lack of primetime games also helps the league in that, it knocks down the expectation level and pressure of drawing huge netw...

Re: Announcing our #XFL2020 broadcast partners:

The networks are also going to be responsible for the on air talent. That means that we will see familiar ABC/ESPN and Fox/Fs1 broadcast talent working these games. I'll laugh a bit if ESPN assigns Matt Vasgersian to their lead XFL broadcast team. That would be bringing things full-circle, though I...

Re: XFL to name Head Coach/GM of LA Franchise May 7th

A name that might be on the radar, might not: Sean Salisbury. Back almost a decade or so ago, Salisbury signed a deal with an upstart league calling itself the New USFL to be the Los Angeles team's coach. The New USFL never actually made it to play. He's certainly available: he's basically being squ...

Re: XFL to name Head Coach/GM of LA Franchise May 7th

I have a name out of left field (sort of) for Houston: John Jenkins Jenkins got burned pretty badly by the FXFL a few years back: took a job with the Hudson Valley Fort, then never got paid and ended up leading a walkout (part of the reason why the FXFL folded midseason and transformed into The Spr...

Heh. Now that sounds like something the OLD XFL would do. :lol:

Re: Future XFL player possibilities

There are some really good football players on that list. A lot of them probably will fall under the category of veterans that will wait out an entire season if they have to, to attempt to get back into the league at some point. There are some players specifically on the offensive line, that I woul...

Re: XFL Team Names And Logo Announcement Is 3-5 Weeks Away

I wonder if there will be leaks on the trademarks? I've seen trademarks leaked on some companies like Sony. Maybe we will get a leaked list at some point. XFL has leaked the cities before. Trademarks are public record. We'll likely find record of the potential teams in the USPTO database before the...

Re: XFL in Birmingham

There is stiff competition in all of the current XFL markets, so I don't think that plays a factor in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver not having XFL teams. In Dallas, we have the Stars, Mavericks, Rangers and FC Dallas and yet there's still going to be an XFL team. LA has a bunch of teams as does N...
