XFL Seattle Dragons surpass 10,000 in season-ticket sales

I wonder if John Clayton is confused. On two separate occasions, he stated that the Dragons had sold over 20,000 season tickets. I thought he just mispoke the first time (and wasn't corrected) but he said it again later (again, not corrected). It seemed unlikely that 20,000 season tickers were sold as the number was only 6 or 7,000 not much earlier. Oh, well. Still great overall numbers.
“We have had a spike in demand and we surged past 10,000 season tickets, which is an awesome story for us and the most in the league,” said Dragons president Ryan Gustafson. “We’re continuing to build it every day. We’re grateful for the support we’ve gotten so far and excited to continue to build this, not just for this year but many years to come.”

The Dragons drew 29,172 for their first home game and Gustafson said it “was an amazing start for us.”

“That was an incredible atmosphere that our fans created,” Gustafson said. “It was a professional football game in Seattle and it felt that way.”

Gustafson said he expects a crowd of more than 20,000 for Saturday’s home game against Dallas. Both teams are 1-1.
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 :?

More from the article. Hopefully Williams and Battle will make it back soon. I didn't realize that Mike Riley has been gone as well.
Notes

Zorn said receiver Kasen Williams was scheduled to have fluid removed from his quad Tuesday. The former Husky and Seahawk has missed the first two games and is questionable this week. Projected starting left tackle Isaiah Battle has missed the first two games with an ankle injury, and Zorn is uncertain if Battle will make it back this week.

* Zorn said offensive coordinator Mike Riley will miss his third straight game because of a family matter, but said he remains hopeful Riley will return at some point.

* Tight end Cam Clear was placed on injured reserve for a non-football injury.

That's unfortunate. I liked Mike Riley when he was coaching the San Antonio commanders. 3-weeks is a long time, and I hope he and his family are staying resilient in the face of whatever has confronted them.
Raising heck...
