I'll give this a shot and wish it all the best. Who knows? It might work this time, that TV deal is good for the league.

If only they used money they threw at this and actually gave us pyro and some good writters, imagine what could've been...

Another American "football" league for the rest of the world to give even less of a crap about.

I feel like only the NFL could launch a successful spring league.

They're the only ones with the power to make it interesting by branding a developmental league.

XFL's biggest problem is that jocks think the WWE is a joke and if I were into sports betting, I wouldn't be convinced that the XFL isn't Sports Entertainment

Football isn't even that hot right now so I'm pretty skeptical. But, getting on major networks is a big part of being successful.

TV is latching onto anything at this point, with everyone moving over to streaming services. I won't be watching it, but let's see how the first season goes before signing its death warrant.

XFL's problem is the league will be full of guys who couldn't make the cut of 3rd string on any NFL team. Alabama or Clemson could beat these teams. Let alone an actual NFL team.

All about the quality of football at the end of the day, so I still think the ceiling is about 2 years.

The fact that they already have Disney and fox behind this is huge off the bat. I wonder if they are getting paid to air?

Last time they didn't have the capital needed, weren't getting paid and completely overestimated how much tickets would be sold and advertising during games. This time they have enough capital as Vince has $500 million cash on hand and won't be at the whim of advertisers in order to survive
