Insane.

I have a bad feeling about this. Red white and blue color scheme? Who wants to bet this becomes the "rah rah we don't kneel America first" football league? I sense Vince is going to steer into the jingoism and basically create Trump Football.

I'm well aware it's a common color, but it's also a departure from what the original XFL color scheme was

Oh, man...watching him try to not directly say "the players cannot kneel" was fucking hilarious.

Hahaha yeah I missed the press conference but I just read about it and sounded like he basically stumbled around that one, but decided no kneeling.

He outright said just football. No outside bs.

I've watched Vince McMahon do business for nearly 30 years. I'll believe the no-outside-BS shit when I see it. The second those ratings drop, Roman Reigns will be helicoptered to the 50 yard line to enter the game.

This but part of me worries with Alpha Entertainment owning all the teams that a overwhelming majority bookies will remain skeptical. His presence was the visible scapegoat, but his control was the ultimate failure, in my opinion.

Vince could make this work even with not-so-great TV ratings. NFL ratings have dipped, but so have everyones. If he can get a good streaming package, the XFL can compete, albeit short term, with the NFL.

XFL gave us the sky cam. That alone is worth a round two to see what else we get out of it.

Vince believes that their shows should be 90 minutes long. But the ad revenue is too good and USA network want 3 hours.

This sounds like it's going to put the XFL at even more of a disadvantage since it'll be starting a year earlier. Sounds interesting enough and I'm all for more football.

Win the Day!

As someone who avidly dislikes football, I hope this oversaturation helps kill the interest for many.

And this new one is being run by Dick Ebersol's kid, and Dick himself is on the board.

Talk about a knife in Vince's back, gotdamn

Pal.

Also, I'm guessing the whole concussion thing isn't a big turnoff. I thought there was a chance that football would slowly begin to fade or have major changes to protect the health of the players and prevent backlash. Changes in gear or rules would lead traditionalists to think the sport has been "pussified", parents would raise concern over their kids safety, and other sports would gain the popularity that football had lost. Nope. Looks like everyone is doubling down.

I just wish we lived in a time where the Mutant League were a real thing.

Ummm?


Participation across the States is down in kids football. However because of fantasy football it’s here to stay, at least the next 20 years

I mean....why not I guess. He's almost 73. His family's set for life. Might as well blow his fortune on one last vanity project.
