XFL 2020 Season

Recommended Posts

I wouldn’t be surprised if Walker ends up back on the Colts roster battling Brissett and likely a rookie, for Indy’s QB1.

Lol at the replay official -- "what the hell's going on with this thing?"

 

The televised replay reviews are simply incredible. Get ready NCAA, VAR and everyone else. People are going to want to see this in other sports.

 

EDIT: Late-game XFL seems to routinely be pretty fun.

You are right, of course. But let us remember that transparent replay review was invented by the Arena Football League. In that league, the referee himself would go over to a replay booth and review the play, while explaining his reasoning out loud.

 

The XFL's advancement is to make review standard, and not dependent upon any coach's challenge.

1) Walker

I can’t tell if he’s a poor man’s Lamar Jackson or a Mahomes-Jackson love child

Looking forward to PJ Walker winning the 2020 NFL MVP and leading the Detroit Lions to the Super Bowl

Eh, that's sort of true whenever teams go for it on fourth or not as well though, right? I think it was fine, but I also kind of wanted Dallas to go for a killshot by going for three and making it a 10 point game later. You know, for fun.

 

EDIT: The biggest issue with the sideline interviews is that most athletes (and people in general) aren't that interesting to listen to talk. Maybe we'll find a Richard Sherman-type who can cut high-quality wrestling promos at some point.

Need to find the jokester or the hot head. Interview them repeatedly.

Which would be a great outcome for everyone involved.

 

All three could easily be upgrades over the backups in Detroit and Pittsburgh.  Good lord, those are some bad QB's backup Stafford and Big Ben.

Not to mention Tampa Bay and St Louis have yet to have their season opener. Good figures, so far.

 

The real test is surviving attendance and viewership numbers vs the NCAA Tournament. That was one of the key factors in XFL 1.0 and the AAF going under in Year 1.

Winston Moss after a loss during which his defensive coordinator called the plays: Our coordinators let us down.

I don't want to go down this path again, but AAF didn't have any money to survive. THAT was the key factor. Hard stop.

Akshully, its because Tom Dundon didn't want to keep pouring money into a black hole, but yeah. 

 

Remember that Vince McMahon wanted to continue the original XFL for another year. UPN wanting to reduce Smackdown in exchange by half an hour is what convinced him to change his mind. The ratings, attendance issues and football are going to be secondary to Vince's desire to keep funding the league. 

 

But, those previous three factors are certainly going to play into his desire unless through the magic of alien space bats, the XFL starts making money.

Quoting myself here, since apparently you skimmed over: ONE OF THE KEY FACTORS

Sad but true. Once Reggie Fowler pulled out of the AAF, the league was a house of cards, as Charlie Ebersol alone had no means of funding one season, let alone the three that he had promised players, coaches, advertisers, and vendors.

 

This left the league dependent on rescue by some angel investor. But Tom Dundon turned out to be much more vulture than angel; and so away went the league, leaving mountains of unpaid bills and many stranded players — not to mention an unfinished history. (The only semblance of closure on the historical question was provided by a popular sports betting company, which paid off on bets on Orlando to win the league's inaugural championship.)

Dundon wasn't enough of a vulture for the NHL to say no.  In the eyes of Ebersol, having Dundon fund the league added credibility since he's the owner of the Carolina Hurricanes.
