    The XFL may be making a comeback

    If fake football were to work, the arena leagues would be the place to make it happen. Fewer players, smaller field, and really, who would care if that level of football were to be scripted? I’m sure someone, but there’s always someone.

    Did Kevin Dunn have anything to do with XFL 1.0? I'd be fine with getting him off WWE productions to see how many camera cuts he could make in a single play.

    I bet a lot of the desire for a new non-NFL spring league has a lot to do with how short the football season is compared to other sports. The NFL runs for roughly six months from beginning to end compared to eight or nine months for the other leagues. Football also runs games once a week which also leads to people being left wanting more when the season comes to an end. Soccer also runs games weekly for the most part, but goes for a lot longer and there's something going on year-round. There are a lot of people out there who just don't care at all about hockey, basketball, soccer, or baseball so having more football is something they're really into. Really they should just get into pro wrestling since that never stops, for better or worse.

    Well, not 10,000 Chargers fans anyway.

    I wouldn't be surprised if weather plays a bigger role than just about anything for most minor league endeavors. If it's 100+ degree heat index I'm not going to watch minor league baseball and if it's raining I'm not sitting outside to watch minor league anything else. I'll be curious to see if things get any better for places like Memphis as the season goes on and the weather potentially gets better.

    Seems odd that the endzones were so full considering you have places like Birmingham tarping them off.

    What's with all this glitchy crap from Adidas? Did somebody just play Watch Dogs for the first time or something?

    The Birmingham attendance really didn't concern me because it looks as good as UAB games if not even better. I remember one time UAB basically crammed all of their fans on a weeknight to face the camera because they were concerned about how bad it would look to have a few thousand inside the way-too-big Legion Field. I say crammed, but there must have been dozens of people there at the most. Memphis looks bad. It is raining, and it is minor league football, so it's not like there are that many hardcore fans that will brave the elements to watch a team they barely care about if at all. Still, I doubt it would have looked all that great anyway.

    I can't believe a minor league football team can't sell out Legion Field, which usually sits empty for its college football team as well. Truly wild stuff.

    If any of you disagree with me, just remember that it's because you're triggered. Checkmate, snowflakes.

    I will accept Nashville Honky Tonkers only if Memphis gets a team called the Rockabillies. We can even rename the Memphis USL team if necessary. The old Nashville logo wasn't very good to begin with. I'd even go as far as to call it bad. And yet, this rumored logo for the MLS move is even worse. That's unfortunate.

    The keyline bonanza going on with that Rams logo is the same thing plaguing the current Titans helmets.

    I watched most of their coverage from this past weekend and the main thing they said was basically, “we’re definitely the minors and everybody here wants to get the hell out and into the NFL AND THAT’S OKAY.”

    That falls under the backwards-ass political nonsense.

    That's the conspiracy I've read several times. I don't know what the new league would be called but I hope the conferences are called Alliance and Xtreme (Iknow the X doesn't actually stand for anything) similar to AFC and NFC. Now I'm going to write some words about Little Rock (the One True City of Arkansas, patent pending) since it has been brought up by more than one poster for some reason. Little Rock is small. Memphis and Birmingham are generally considered small markets for pro sports, but Little Rock is even smaller. The Little Rock metro has 700K people while the supposedly small Birmingham metro has 1.1 million. Little Rock is also a generally bad sports town if it doesn't involve the Razorbacks. The Rimrockers were one of the few ABA teams that actually did okay, meaning they made it through a full season and everything. Their success was built on the back of having former Hog players that couldn't make it in the NBA. They did so well that they got into the D-League, but without any Razorback players people stopped caring and they folded. We also had two different minor league hockey teams for a season and both were dead within a few years. The NPSL Rangers seem to do okay, drawing around 3-4K per game. We do have a War Memorial Stadium which holds 50-something thousand and is in desperate need of something, anything going on there. The Razorbacks keep trying to pull out of playing games there for a bunch of reasons that all make sense, but backwards-ass political nonsense keeps them there for now. It's only a matter of time before the state catches up with everybody else and games stopped being played at War Memorial and then it'll just be a venue for high school football and amateur soccer.

    I wonder how much of this is because of the XFL 30 for 30. A lot of that doc was about how they rushed to get on the field and the teams were terrible, but by all accounts were way better by the end of the season. Problem was that virtually everybody had checked out by then. So I suspect some people have heard that and decided to be a bit more forgiving. Yeah, but the Jacksonville Jaguars brought back in-stadium hot tubs. Which I guess makes sense considering the Khans are getting into the pro wrestling business.

    Spoiler alert: Christian Hackenburg is still a bad quarterback.

    It's better than any UAB game I've seen. Replay official blew it just now in the Memphis-Birmingham game. I guess the Alliance doesn't want to be too different from the NFL. Fortunately it's the first game for a minor league football team so I'm not upset like I would be normally.

    Let's not forget that the UCF Knights were 2017 College Football National Champions.

    The receiver should not be able to just push the defender away but instead the receiver should be able to just push the defender away.

    Well now I'm not as certain about the rule. Every striped set I've seen from an MLS team has had a solid back. All of the old hooped FC Dallas jerseys, Atlanta United, Montreal, the striped SKC kit, etc. had the solid back. Maybe Vancouver got a waiver or something, I don't know.

    Me too. It looks so much better on teams like Inter and AC Milan because the stripes go around the back. Unfortuantely it’s an MLS rule that requires the back to be a single solid color. And if I remember correctly I think Inter and AC Milan and Juventus have to use solid backs in UEFA Champions League.

    I was thinking the RSL kit looks like ink from a marker bleeding through onto a second piece of paper.
  24. How do they not have a replay system? They have replay in college football.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    The Montana NIners also went to less than half as many Super Bowls as the Brady Pats and we didn't have the internet back then. It's just like when people talk about how nobody hated Michael Jordan. It's nothing but revisionist history. Michael Jordan was very much a hated sports figure for the same reason anybody who wins three-straight championships (twice!) would be. I remember people talking about he was soft because of the Jordan rules and how he was a selfish ballhog and so on and so forth.
