Recommended Posts

So when are they going to announce the Uniform supplier?  And who's it going to be?

There's a leaked Vipers jersey in the XFL identity thread in Sports Logos, no branding but the talk is that it's Adidas.

Stamford, Conn., October 7, 2019 – The XFL player draft will take place Tuesday, October 15 and Wednesday, October 16. Player selections will be announced on XFL.com, @xfl2020 on Twitter, @xfl on Instagram, and through the social media channels of the eight XFL teams.

Over the two-day draft, each XFL team will populate a 71-man roster by selecting players from a set of positional groupings. One quarterback will be assigned to each team prior to a five-phased draft, phased as follows: 

  1. Skill Players (QB, RB, WR, TE)

  2. Offensive Line (OT, OG, OC)

  3. Defensive Front Seven (DL, LB)

  4. Defensive Backfield (CB, NB, SS, FS)

  5. Open Draft (all remaining players after positional drafts, in addition to P/K/LS)

The draft pool will include approximately 1,000 professional football players, all of whom accepted a Commissioner’s Invitation and passed a standard background check. In Phases 1-4, each team will choose ten players for a total of 40 players. In Phase 5, each team will choose from the pool of remaining players to complete its initial roster.

They're using an Oakland Raider in their official Twitter account??

Connor Cook at that too. Then again, whenever I want to feel euphoric, I'd just watch that 2016 Wild Card game against the Texans. Because happiness is so much more enjoyable when its based on the misery of the Raider Nation. Gotta wonder how many fans of theirs were at that game while on furlough.

Isn't it customary to offer a price break for a full season?

AAF didn't do that either. And if you're the XFL? You're going to need as much of that money as you can reasonably get. Because they're getting squat from TV

The prospect of opening a gate-driven league in 2020 is terrifying. These people are nuts.

Still a better deal than the AAF. At least Vince has enough clout to not have to buy time while having Disney pay for the production costs. He's just not getting anything yet. If the XFL has a couple of solid seasons, though? Who knows. Key word being "if" of course.

What Globe Life Park will look like as a football stadium:

 

 

For comparison, here's the staring chart/prices for the Atlanta Legends in a converted MLB stadium.

Non-Premium per game: $15, 25, 35, 50

Premium seats per game: $145, 155, 170, 179

Note, Premium seats included parking and often alcohol.

 

Tampa Bay is only using lower bowl and one club level (south club)

$20-90 per game.

Vince is the reason the XFL will fail again.  He has the tendency to lose interest in things really fast and flies off the handle at the smallest things.  He is super impatient and will demand success right away.  People have questioned his mental status.

The new-look XFL will be a spring league that kicks off the weekend after the Super Bowl, giving Robinson an opportunity to showcase his skill prior to the NFL Draft.

 

So would he still be draft eligible or simply a free agent?

XFL doesn't have a minimum age or time after your HS class to be NFL-draft eligiblity, so he's both.

So he could technically play in the XFL and be available for the NFL draft? That's the question i have since he'd already be a pro if he's playing in the XFL. That seems to be the option the article I read was proposing.
