XFL 2020 Season

Recommended Posts

Next week. The league will be lucky to draw 50,000 total. And that would have to be considered a success. Just like week 4 drawing 70K 

 

It sucks LA and NY can’t relocate because of TV contract politics. 
 

In a perfect world though  my relocation for next season would look like this:
 

NY to Columbus 

LA to SD

Dallas to San Antonio 

Tampa Bay to Orlando

Mapfre would be perfect. Of course if that happens it would only make sense for the team to have yellow in their paint scheme.

 

Columbus Generals has a nice ring to it. Goes well with the Blue Jackets and instead of the Zouave look, they could do the Union Calvary look.

 

I like the sound of Columbus Cavalry.

27527 in St Louis today. 

 

And now two away games before coming home to play LA. Have my tickets already. I wouldn't be surprised if BattleHawks get another sell out for this one.

Just don't make the logo look like Custer. He was from New Rumley, Ohio. Phillip Sheridan would work though.

On reddit I mentioned how Orlando could be a perfect match for them. With the ESPN affiliation they could set up a smaller temp stadium type thing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports thing and get people to go just because its at Disney World. 

San Antonio can work if they get St Louis and Seattle type crowds to go to the Alamodome.

I think Houston and Dallas will do well attendance wise.  DC will be interesting now that they have lost two straight.  LA I expect a decline.  They had 17,000 their first game, second game had 12,000.

DC will truck the TB Vipers. Cardale had a bad game last week but he rebounds in a big way!

I think good attendance would be automatic in SA.

Houston 18.5K(i would expect better in Hou, but this is thinking the worst hoping the best...that goes for the following too)

Dallas 12 K

DC 12K

LA 10K

 

in and around 50K maybe slightly above, hopefully not below

San Diego would have been a perfect place for an XFL team. Such a team might have received a welcome as warm as St. Louis's team has gotten.

 

This might also be a rationale for the league to put an expansion team in Oakland. The Oakland Demons, with the logo and uniforms of the original XFL's San Francisco Demons, could be a big hit.

 

San Antonio would also be a great expansion location. And it is another case in which the XFL would do well to revive an earlier team's identity. A return of the Commanders would probably be greeted very enthusiastically.

 

Tampa Bay gave good support to the USFL's Bandits and to the Arena Football League's Storm. So perhaps the attendance for the Vipers will turn around once the early-season bad buzz wears off. Though that team will never fill that stadium — just as the Guardians will never fill the huge Meadowlands stadium.

 

The Guardians don't need to leave the New York area. Rather, McMahon needs to spend his money more wisely. Instead of paying for the use of the Meadowlands stadium (in effect, paying for bad publicity), he should direct some of that big money towards one of the local colleges, as discussed in earlier pages.

 

Or else just overwhelm Red Bull with a gigantic offer that will force them to alter their policy of not allowing American football in Red Bull Arena. Everyone has his or her price.

Oakland would have no place to play and reportedly they turned down the XFL initially.

The XFL 2.0 put teams in LA and New York, two locales that had XFL 1.0 teams. The Xtreme and Hitmen identities were not revived. I don't think the new XFL has any interest in reviving the identities of old XFL teams.

Demons and Outlaws would be worth reviving. The rest leave it back in 2001

I wonder how Detroit would do at Ford Field? Would be cool to see a team there called the Spartans. Pay homage to the Portsmouth Spartans who became the Lions.

 

Doubtful, wouldnt want to alienate University of Michigan fans by naming the team the same as Michigan State.

Orlando would likely play in Camping World, but if MLS stadiums are in play the perfect venue would be the Orlando City soccer stadium.

I'd be willing to sell the team my Orlando Sorcerers copyright.
