Former President of the Fleet Jeff Garner joined Scott to talk about the shutdown of the AAF and the fallout for every former employee.
Jeff Garner: "Sounds like we were backed into a corner. Took the money...gave somebody control to do whatever they wanted"
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 :?

This is a messed up situation. I do however get a kick out of people actually realizing how expensive these leagues are to run. So many people ridiculed those who stated how the weekly operations costs millions of dollars to operate. That’s not even taking into account weekly player and coach salaries. Just lodging and food expenses can be difficult to handle. Let alone everything else.

Jeff Garner said during this interview how the league still owes over 800k to business partners in San Diego. That’s probably a conservative estimate. The league owes UCF alone over a million dollars.
