Re: Social Media

Ignore the noise

(Or in twitterspeak: #ignorethenoise)

When the face of XFL-bashing is some bot called Did The XFL Fold Yet, who basically spends his day talking to himself and retweeting his own tweets you know you've just got to soldier on

Re: St Louis Battlehawks

From that standpoint I agree, kind of comes like New York CityHawks of the late 90s AFL (who oddly enough became the Phantoms in Toronto before folding).

A good low-key name, and similar to what they ended up with: Battalions (which has an ROTC/FD connection).

This might take some time.

Re: I'm Stuck Between 2 Teams. Which Should I Pick?

I'm kinda nervous that the Renegades name and logo might get in a lawsuit and then they'll have to change it. You think that'll happen? There's no copyright stuff with LA for obvious reasons. To me, Houston seems to be far more of a threat in that department than Dallas. Jerry Jones has been mostly...

Re: I'm Stuck Between 2 Teams. Which Should I Pick?

The guy whining about it on Twitter opens himself up to a lawsuit as well if he wants to go that route, sale (he's since sold it to former NBA player/current Euro Jonas Jerebko) regardless, since he also bragged about being the designer. Not only Renegades but Dallas Desperados/Vigilantes, and one o...

Re: I'm Stuck Between 2 Teams. Which Should I Pick?

I wouldn't necessarily assume the defense will suffer, the most prolific Air Raid team in college (Stoops/Mumme pal Mike Leach, and the Spurrier link with Scott on the Renegades staff and SJ on Leach's) has had a pretty good D the last few years, relating here with Alex Grinch (now at OU). Red zone ...

Re: Discuss Alliance of American Football here!

Well he did mention XFL at the end, but I don't know how anybody could have missed the AAF's collapse. Thankfully it didn't quite make it to Paul Pelosi telling Howard David at halftime of the second to last UFL game "Yes we will pay the players" but the last game in SA just seemed like a ...

Re: Team names

Yeah it is but sometimes "safe and boring" is better than trying to be too cute (I went with Stars but that could be accused of the same thing), example, they could have been Guardians instead of NY, that gives you (playing in the same stadium) the whole "Guardians of the Galaxy"...

Re: An oral history of the AAF's Memphis Express, as told by players, coaches and front office execs

Looks like the whole thing went better than the Orlando Predators revival under AFL legend Kenny "The Glove" McIntyre, but that's not an accomplishment. Good to see those interviewed are mostly in good spirits, though I can't imagine Adrien Robinson (had his card charged) or Taiwan Jones (...

Re: Spring League Megathread

OK by that token was the first forward pass a bastardization of the game? The two-point conversion? Now if you wanna talk college OT which almost completely takes special teams and defense out of the game and is out of hand (see LSU Texas A&M last year) yeah. And no I don't like the "shooto...
