@blitz_nfl

If Tom Dundon pulls out of @TheAAF today... Don’t be surprised by it being funded and floated on by no other than Jerry Jones
It's gettin' hot in here...and we about to burn 'em up!

Looks like the 2020 XFL champion may be 2-3 seconds short of playing a full season :?

If Jerry Jones gets involved, I'm done with the league.

All @TheAAF football operations will be suspended in the next few hours, per source with knowledge of situation. League is not folding, yet. But it's heading that way.

This probably means that Dundon is gone. Can they find another investor in short time, and continue? We will soon see.

It’s not over. But it’s close.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Alliance of American Football will be suspending all football operations within the next few hours.

The league won’t be folding, yet. But it seems to be moving in that direction.

The move comes in the aftermath of ominous comments from Tom Dundon, who became majority owner of the AAF several weeks ago. Dundon committed $250 million in funding to the league, but he had the ability to pull funding, and he obviously has.

If Dundon owns the IP, how would Jones be able to "float" it?
