Will the XFL be a success

  • Registered: September 28, 2016

    I'll pack it over here, even if it's just the rumor of a new (old) professional league

    As if 2017 has not been crazy enough, 2018 may be firing an opening salvo at continuing the insanity if one is to believe rumors swirling around the sports entertainment landscape. Nearly two decades after the original XFL shuttered its doors in 2001, the league may actually be on its way back.
    There has been unsubstantiated talk about the XFL making a return for a short while now, but Brad Shepard reported late Friday night that WWE chairman Vince McMahon is so deep into considerations about reforming the league that there's even a potential announcement date - Jan. 25 , 2018.
    Candidly, this would not normally be something worth paying attention to on its own, but there's no denying that WWE's response to the report appears to lend it some legitimate credibility.

    One of the biggest debacles in American sports history could give it a second try

    Show all

    Oh what does debacle mean. Since the NFL has sunk more coal in the NFLE. However, they could reactivate them with the new popularity of the NFL. In the meantime, the circumstances could be much better. Less show and better players

    Then I'll just open my own forum ... with blackjack and hookers!

    At least the NFLE had its fans and from a point of view the NFL was the clear number 2 with no ambition to breed an equal competition under its own roof. The XFL, on the other hand, was supposed to become the big competitor, and with NBC it even had the basis for a very good TV presence.

    Could even imagine that it could pick up a few of the NFL this time "disappointed" (less tough tackles due to concussions, anthem protests, etc.). But that will never last, because something has to be established in the long term. But if you have too much money over ...

    Above all, the lawyers will rub their hands if you want to increase the risk of injury in the XFL. It's going to be a CET festival

    The only ones who would make money with a new edition are the lawyers. Leagues the world doesn't need.

    Of course nobody needs that. And that would also be unnecessarily dangerous. But there are people who like it when people get injured and people who are willing to take the risk of permanent damage in order to get a little bit of money. I never want to see that again. But if it does, it won't last long ..

    According to Dave Meltzer, Vince McMahon wants to bring the Football League back to the XFL. As early as 2001, McMahon tried to build up another mainstay in sports entertainment alongside wrestling. However, the project failed after just one game season and is considered McMahon's biggest defeat in the business sector.

    Now, however, there should be another attempt. However, this time WWE should be completely kept out. The company Alpha Entertainment is to be founded shortly, which will have nothing to do with World Wrestling Entertainment. McMahon would like to try again with this company in American football and use his personal fortune for it.

    Looking at WWE stock, with the chance of another big flop, it seems like a wise move by Vince McMahon to keep World Wrestling Entertainment out of the game.

    We stay tuned.

    Oh, that old, confused man who still likes fart jokes and would like to have boring, big steroid monsters in the main event in 2017 too, would like to stand out on football again?

    Should he, it will be a flop!

    Then he should buy the Panthers right away

    Was crap even then and is still a stupid idea. But if that should actually come back, the thing will fail, like so many attempts before.

    It would be nice to revive the old NFLE, but in the meantime the marketing and distribution of the NFL has long since taken place in other ways through the increasing number of London games, the game pass, etc. In my opinion, there will never be an expensive farm league in Europe again.

    the players at that time, were they former bad and mediocre nfl players or worse from some amateur leagues or from leagues from abroad?

    ... in the beginning it was just a thought ...

    NFLE could be tried "again".

    Back then there was not such a boom as it is today. XFL- Vince his product? Was just wrongly planned and scheduled. The name WWF was also relied on.

    The whole "competitive leagues" like XFl, World Hockey Association appear every few years and after hours these names disappear again

    WWE's Production team has been working on video material geared towards promoting the impending return of the XFL of late, PWInsider.com has learned. The current plan, according to numerous sources, is for the football league to officially return in 2020. The delay is to build a proper infrastructure, including hiring coaches and players. As you might remember, the original incarnation of the XFL launched rather quickly after it was announced. Vince McMahon is not going to make the same mistake twice.
    Last year, McMahon launched a new company, Alpha Entertainment, to pursue a number of potential entertainment endeavors as well as a potential relaunch of the XFL. It's quite interesting that despite the planned relaunch being outside of WWE's auspices, their production team has been working on video content related to the planned return of the football league.

    The original XFL launched in 2001 as a joint venture between NBC and WWE, existing for one season.
    An ESPN 30For30 documentary about the rise and fall of the league included footage of McMahon and NBC Executive Dick Ebersol discussing their memories of their partnership in the league over dinner and the idea of ​​launching it today. During those discussions, McMahon admitted that he had "recently" had talks with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones about the idea of ​​a "minor league NFL." It certainly appears that instead, the XFL will rise again.

    The old man just can't help it ...

    Hehe - the first candidate has already been found:

    - The XFL is coming back in January 2020
    - 8 teams from as yet unknown cities
    - 10 games for each team in one season
    - 4 teams playoffs
    - 40 player roster
    - The season would start between the NFL Championship Games and the Superbowl
    - No cheerleaders
    - No extra hard rules like back then
    - Family-friendly and welcome for every age group
    - No one with a DUI will be allowed in the XFL

    "Fire up the duck boats" - 12 championship parades since 2001: Patriots (2002, 2004, 2005, 2014, 2016, 2018), Red Sox (2004, 2007, 2013, 2018), Celtics (2008) and Bruins (2011)

  • And political opinions are not allowed ...

    It is more likely to be the Xtreme Moral and Softened Football League.
