Yes, then there's this; they may be reposting previously published stuff, but at least, it keeps some hype for XFL alive; if people find themselves new hobbies and passions, when COVID-19 will be over, there won't be many people paying money to see it (either in person in stadiums, or on TV), and that would hit the sport harder than any pandemic.

The XFL does it again .....but this time it wasn't a player who made the grade.....but the announcer, as ABC/ESPN XFL play by play man Steve Levy will be the guy on Monday Night Football when and if there is a season. He will be joined by Brian Griese and Louis Riddick returning MNF to a three man booth for the first time since the Dennis Miller experiment I think.

It's looking more and more like it will never be "over." There will be fears of another wave for years, it seems. After all, this was originally supposed to be handled in weeks, then weeks turned to months, and now months are turning to years. No one has a clue. No one wants to admit defeat. No one wants to let us get back to normal life. Schools can still only operate two days a week, half a year into this nonsense, when the apex was five months ago where I live.

They said this too shall pass, and they lied.

Its beyond hyper political now. We snuffed th curve in the NE, and the South will be done soon. Even in a surge we handled the load. Its age dependent yet we operate like a 15 yr old has same reaction as someone 75.
FauXi can't even say that "protest may have helped spread the disease". Yet it was no masks when NY got slammed, then it was 2 weeks than 4.... blah blah.... on Nov 5 this will lose its media push and will simmer down quickly.
