Hence why I wondered if Larry Scott secretly moved up north

Re: CFL to implement revenue sharing

I don't know what the hell this is supposed to prove, like "we'll show the XFL, we're going to have revenue sharing, they'll wish they never talked to us, MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!" . Seriously, between the really? Edmonton spike and this--seemingly a response to the MLSE report, this is comi...

Re: Mitchell: XFL looking at Mexico, potentially Canada, for 2023 franchises

Nothing burger. Sorry, but the XFL needs to focus on putting eight teams on the field. Yes we know XFL 3.0 wants to go international, as they said when they tried to partner with the CFL, but they haven’t played a down. Maybe start with that? Until they do, they really don’t exist. Mitchell is desp...

Re: Mitchell: XFL looking at Mexico, potentially Canada, for 2023 franchises

Brings back memory of the UFL being keen on Monterrey before an increased cartel presence blew that up. A lesser degree but the NAL had a team in Monterrey (had some decent talent, even Jacoby Jones) and then the Puebla quake happened, although it's pretty much accepted they hid behind it (IRT not ...

Re: XFL officially delays start until 2023

I can't speak for anyone else on this board but the league that actually fields a team will get my support (and dollars) and right now that is most likely to be the USFL. As should ALWAYS be the case with startup football leagues, believe it when you see it. McMahon was the exception to the rule th...

Re: CFL - Edmonton: Pleased XFL Talks Have Ended

And of course there's the own goal #3 of "Hey Edmonton were you as proud of your former name?"

They really should have sat this one out, Abe strikes again

Re: CFL - Edmonton: Pleased XFL Talks Have Ended

I don't know, the reaction on Edmonton's page seemed to be mostly 'What a stupid statement'. This would be called an own goal. Did they like being effectively nationalized as well? Or was it how close they came to a second straight year off (which would have flattened the league for the last time)? ...

Re: CFL: No formal arrangement with XFL at this time

He's a glorified Carney and looked down upon by traditional sports media. Funny, the only ones that really matter (you know that move product ) he built a fine business relationship with. 15 years after ESPN laughed him out of the room with XFL1.0 they're covering Wrestlemania at JerryWorld, must h...

Re: TSL 2> USFL

I just hope the expectation of what we'll see here is kept realistic. This is not the 80s USFL/David Dixon model. That was designed with major league aspirations. They were supposed to adhere to a structured financial model but that strategy fell very quickly and ownerships were bailing out after s...

Re: TSL MEGA BOWL and Season Ratings

Interesting that the 12:00 start (6/12) drew the most viewers--send this to David Shaw and Joe Castiglione STAT!!!!!!!! I wouldn't want to see a ton of those, not cause of any manufactured concerns, but for any possible negative effects on ratings of staggered starts--maybe the occasional doublehead...
