Default XFL Return?

So i've seen reports that Vince McMahon is planning on bringing his XFL back, any truth to the rumors?

Would it be a viable option today?

spring time for football in Trumpy times


it could work but will likely flop.
finding the talent at key skill positions will be the downfall.
theres talk it wont be called the XFL either, which would be smart on 2 counts, the name is linked to failure and the times have changed (hard hits are a bit sticky now.)

the 30 for 30 doc was interesting but players out injured on some of the interesting tweaks like the kick off scramble.

i hope it works as it would be nice to have some football of a decent level in the off season.

One of the new trademarks apparently registered is 'URFL'

reports McMahon has been filed trademarks for some XFL products and has sold $75m in WWE shares so people are speculating this funding is to help re-launch the league.

as reported he would need atleast 12 teams with owners prepared to put in $200m to make it work this time.

Well the XFL is coming back in 2020 then.

Looks like the season will start late Jan/early Feb.

8 teams to start.
40 man rosters.
Quicker game (shorter clock?)
More attention to player safety.
All teams league owned.

Oh and a really bad press conference to launch it all

"The XFL will not be political"

"No players will be permitted to kneel during the national anthem"




Ok Vince, as you were.
