2000 WLAF Final Standings

 

After the Oklahoma Wranglers won Tackle Mania 2 on their homefield, questions arose about the XFL's future. The WWF has placed half of the eight teams in the XFL up for sale, one of whom being the Los Angeles Avengers, winners of the first Tackle Mania in 1999. The Avengers would eventually be purchased by Vivendi Universal in exchange for USA Network keeping Monday Night Raw on its 3 hour format. Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts have each lined up to try to purchase the Las Vegas Outlaws. Jim Ross is currently lining up investors to help him buy the Oklahoma Wranglers.

 

Meanwhile, Vince McMahon's main business, the World Wrestling Federation received two helpings of bad news. The first coming from an ongoing trademark dispute with the World Wildlife Fund for Nature. The second came when The Walt Disney Company announced its plans to acquire World Championship Wrestling (WCW) from Ted Turner, citing AOL Time Warner's desire to take wrestling off of Turner's cable channels.

 

On to the 2000 World League season. The World League would split into three conferences. Teams in each conference would play each other enough times to fill the 14 game schedule in a manner similar to what the AFL used from 1966-67 when the Miami Dolphins came into existence. Meeting only once were Dublin and London in Europe, Saskatchewan and Winnipeg in Canada and Mexico City and San Antonio in the United Conference.

 

The four best teams in each conference would reach the 12 team Grey Cup playoffs.

I could really only see one team that the World League would accept from the XFL between the Los Angeles Avengers, the Oklahoma Wranglers and the Las Vegas Outlaws. And honestly, its probably between the last two unless there is an expansion of 3 teams in the Northern US/Canada and Europe which would allow 3 XFL teams to come in bringing the number of teams to 36.

 

As for how I could see that happening, here would be the most likely markets for 3 future teams in those markets:

 

Northern US/Canada

 

1. Quebec City

2. Halifax

3. Boise, Idaho

 

Europe:

 

1. Moscow/St. Petersburg

2. Rome

3. Warsaw

2000 QUARTERFINALS

 

OJ Brigance proved once again why he has been Baltimore's leader on defense. A fumble return in the final two minutes with the game on the line helped the Stallions gallop to the semifinals.

The Memphis Hound Dogs' Cinderella season continues with a hard fought victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Two defensive touchdowns, a fumble return by Paris Lenon and a pick six by Corey Sawyer clinched the game for the Hound Dogs.

Rashaan Salaam returned to greatness, carrying the load for the Alouettes on the way to a 24 to 19 win over the Stampeders.

The Druids record their very first postseason win at home, and they did it with style. Running back Saladin McCullough was the hero for Dublin, and there was nothing the Rhein Rhythm could do.

2000 SEMIFINALS

 

NEWS

The World League announces its intention to expand to 36 teams for 2002, some of the teams could include members of the faltering XFL.

 

Portland's NFL expansion franchise to announce name and logo the weekend before the Grey Cup.

 

Baltimore was once again home to a playoff game. The Stallions' weaknesses against the deep pass were exposed. With under 2 minutes to go and the ball on their own 2, the Hound Dogs took to the air. Quarterback Andy Kelly converted two fourth downs, one with an 8 yard scramble, the next a 22 yard pass to Thomas Bailey. Kelly's heroics set up a 22 yard game winning field goal by Clay Rush with just 11 seconds left.

 

Hound Dogs 26 Stallions 24

 

Dublin was also home to a semifinal. The Druids' blowout upset over the Montreal Alouettes ushers in the very first Grey Cup without any Canadian teams involved.
