What media hype? Seems like we're the only people who were even halfway interested.
ReRead what I wrote - I'm speaking of the Covid hysteria hype that has taken off in last 2 weeks. Not TSL.

OK, I'm following. And who was it that assured us that the exact opposite was going to happen?

Yes and I'm quite annoyed that the hyperbole is off the rails. But we have a Georgia runoff to scare for now - and again all these rules were meant to be broken by the rule makers, glad they are getting caught. Things spiked after halloween/street celebrations.
two vaccines in record time and they can't stop fear porn, It's ridiculous.

Can we start flagging posters for misinformation the same way Twitter does?

Anyway, I have to think TSL will be back. They’re done for now but they finally got a little bit of tv time. Maybe 2022.

Why? Who wants to suppress anything.

BTW I post the link to the CDC on almost every post so all can see it for themselves. Its science.

As far as TSL. I hope you are correct. Let's see what happens. Agreed the TV time is a big help.

Seriously, we wouldn’t want to flag the veracity of posts the way Twitter does. I don’t believe that is what this site is about. This site should not have to do that. But, I understand your concerns, and I think your point was made.

Whenever the discussion moves even close to the political arena it tends to devolve into a futile disagreement. Covid response is one of these realms now. People have their opinions, and they’ll stick to them, no matter how many links to whatever website are posted.

Anyways, this particular thread discussion has gone beyond the original topic... usually a sign that the discussion has run its course.

To try to bring things back on topic (again), the XFL Markcast just released an interview with CEO Brian Woods, addressing some of the issues that have been raised:

I haven't yet had a chance to listen.

Good listen, thank you for linking. One of the hosts made a good point -- this is exactly why Kenneth Farrow is trying to put together the UFPA.

Woods blames COVID and throws the players under the bus for lack of COVID compliance. Super weak, IMO. No one is saying this is easy or cheap, but if you're going to do it, do it right. If you can't afford to do it right, don't do it. Basketball is obviously a fraction of the personnel, but TBT pulled this off months ago by developing sound rules and then following through.

Loved the part where he claimed he only watched "20 seconds" of the video that started this thread, but also said it was all lies.

Woods still hoping to play the 12/2 championship. Says the league is covering the hotel bill of any players still quarantining in hotels.

Says that the vision is to make the league a true "D League." Plans to come back bigger and better in the spring, waiting for FOX to tell them when they want to start -- could be anywhere from February to April.

Kudos to the podcast for landing the Woods interview and asking some semi-uncomfortable questions. It wasn't Barbara Walters, but surely those guys didn't start the podcast to do investigative journalism. And kudos to Woods for coming on and answering semi-uncomfortable questions on a fan podcast.

Kudos to XFL Markcast for interviewing Woods. I am actually surprised he agreed to it, so in that respect Kudos to him for agreeing to be interviewed.

That being said, I tend to not believe much of what Woods says.

The podcast guys are more professional than the pros. great job. Woods answers were quite believable. This is a minor league and I think they did fine with Covid. Being in the working world, this chatter happens everywhere on every topic - everyone is not 100% happy anywhere. Even NFL. Difference is they get a big check and wont risk it, getting no pay makes talking up easier. Rodger Badell is way more full of s##t.
