The Golden One

XFL 2020 Logos and Names

Recommended Posts

The Oilers colors plus Black will go to Tampa Bay.....mark my words!'

 

Reason being, they reached deep into the history books and found there was a 
Tampa Bay team to be in the PSFL(1992, but league folds 2 weeks before kickoff), same exact colors, the Tampa 
Bay Outlaws.....

 

My other predictions::

 

The LA team will probably be the blue silver white, paying homage to the old USFL Express minus the ugly maroon thank god!

 

The 3 greens goes to Seattle

 

The Blue orange green to St Louis

 

Black and Silver to New York

 

Red and White to Dallas

 

Red Orange and Black to Houston

 

Blue Grey Red to Washington

THIS IS FUN.

 

I like Crimson Bull's "picture puzzle" approach.

 

Using it and IceCap's possible prescience regarding wrestler names being adapted to team names,  I submit the following. 

 

 Team One:   spacer.png = spacer.png + spacer.png Seattle Sea Dragons

 

Team Two:    spacer.png = spacer.png + spacer.png New York Gargoyles 

 

Team Three:  spacer.png = spacer.png + spacer.png  Houston Wildcats

 

Team Four:    spacer.png =  spacer.png + spacer.png St. Louis Werewolves

 

Team Five:    spacer.png =  spacer.png + spacer.png Dallas Thunderbirds

 

Team Six:      spacer.png =  spacer.png + spacer.png Washington Warriors

 

Team Seven:  spacer.png = spacer.png + spacer.png Tampa Bay Vipers

 

Team Eight:    spacer.png = spacer.png + spacer.png  California Hell's Angels

 

 

 

Some of the cities can be interchanged; you can probably put Vipers in Houston (not too far from bayou country; it was founded on Buffalo Bayou) IF you put the Wildcats in Dallas; Thunderbirds can go anywhere, as can Werewolves.

 

 

The night aerial shot is not St. Louis.  If you look closely there are palm trees visible.  That would represent Tampa most likely.

St. Louis should be the Vipers and Tampa should be the Pythons, brother!

We should have the return of the Maniacs, Brother!

Could they get away with calling the NY team the Gotham Gargoyles? Or would DC comics have a fit about that

 

And for those with Washington Warriors guesses, Dan Snyder owns that name for a failed AFL start up, also he keeps it for potential Redskins replacement names if he has to. But that's a completely different discussion.

I'm thinking the LA Renegades.

This is a nice layout that makes a lot of sense.  Selfishly hoping the Light Blue/Red/Black is for Houston and not LA.  Houston Highwaymen?

 

I also still think it makes sense for the Red/Orange/Black to be Tampa in large part because of Raymond James Stadium.  It also seems like some of these color combos relate to the cities' other athletic histories (Seattle's Green/Yellow, Houston potentially in Light Blue/Red) so that would align.  But, as you laid out, the video teases don't line up.

 

It's fun to guess.  Anxiously awaiting 12:30pm.  I hope they also unveil an official licensing/apparel partner (UA would be great for them) and have good merch ready to go.

Looking back at past XFL pictures, I stumbled upon this.  I can't believe they practically filled Pac Bell Park!  The AAF would have killed for that kind of turn out.  In my head I've always remembered the XFL as a catastrophic failure, but it looks like it had some potential.

XFL definitely started out high in week 1 and then declined from there.

 

That was largely because of the gimmicky, wrestling-style action of making everything "extreme" and "ultra-2000s." In terms of gameplay and presentation (at least execution, not style), the XFL did a good job. 

 

If McMahon can be believed, and the 2019 XFL has a straightforward, non-gimmicky presentation, it'll have at least a little bit of success, IMO.

The XFL did reasonably well at the gate.  I think they were on par with USFL season 1 for attendance.  The television part of it was the catastrophic failure   In fact. The lowest atttended XFL game was around 10,000 and change.  A figure is sure the AAF would’ve killed for.  😂😂😂

To be fair, we have no idea what this guy's taste in names is. You can find thousands of tweets talking about how great uniforms and logos supposedly suck. Same principle could apply here.

 

That being said, I'm perfectly willing to give a mea culpa to this guy when he's 100% correct

So names like the hotshots fleet and legends will look hall of fame in comparison huh?  Great just great!  Well spring football is officially dead now 🙄

 

edit.  I can take one or 2 bad names maybe. Not a league full of them. No matter how great the uniforms might be. I’m praying to god these next 2 hours !!

San Francisco had strong support in 2001 - the Demons led the league in attendance with an average of over 35,000 fans. Presumably some of that can be attributed to a brand new stadium and non-Candlestick weather.

They also advertised locally much better than most of the AAF teams did.

Hell yes. Even the Washington Federals had better Marketing than the whole AAF put together. Lol.  Believe me. I live in a former AAF town. It was frustrating to me how they weren’t marketing the franchise here. Well now we all know why they weren’t. 😛
