What Audi Field will look like with the XFL's DC Defenders:

 

 


If you pay $100 to go to an XFL game your accounts and assets need to be frozen and liquidated immediately.  We gave you a chance to be financially independent and you clearly can’t handle it.

It really all depends on who they get. $100 to be four rows away from, I don't know, Johnny Manziel?

 

Nevermind...you're right.

 

I don't know how much I'd pay to see the Seattle Dragons, but I know it's well south of $100. Maybe $20?

Apparently confirmed. Lansing is one and done in USL League One. Ownership claiming financial reasons. This kinda surprises me. They placed 2nd in the league and were 3rd in the league attendance wise. (avg 2,788). Wonder what went wrong.

I was looking up Inter Miami's stadium situation and looked at their plans for their permanent stadium: https://www.intermiamicf.com/club/facilities/miami-freedom-park

It's incredible, clearly. But there's no chance it actually happens, right?

Check out that dude looking at his phone even in the team's own stadium renderings.

He's in the VIP lounge I'd assume, so he's probably checking his Instagram stats. What's more concerning is the guy with the vuvuzela, he should be chucked off the top of the stadium.

With a name like Miami Freedom Park for the stadium site, should MLS and/or the investors/operators of Inter Miami run into legal trouble over the team's current name(s), either Miami Freedom FC or a Spanish equivalent thereof (Would CF (Club de Fútbol) Libertad Miami be correct?) would be a great replacement name.

Sure, I guess it would.  

 

But they won’t run into legal trouble.

I base my concern about Inter Miami's brand(s) on the suspended-but-still-pending complaint that MLS has filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office over F.C. Internazionale Milano's attempt to register "Inter" as a trademark in the United States:

 

http://ttabvue.uspto.gov/ttabvue/v?pno=91247160&pty=OPP

 

Who is to say that Inter Milan, a club founded decades before anyone had proposed what would become known as Major League Soccer, will not counteract with a formal complaint (either directly with the USPTO or via a lawsuit in a U.S. federal court) that "Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami MMXX" and/or "Inter Miami CF" infringe on any trademark to which the Italian club enjoys at least common-law rights in the United States?

 

As for Inter Miami's desired stadium, it is about time that the club had a firmer plan than ever for a permanent home venue.  Now, we have to wait and see how much financial will the team's investors/operators have and how much political will any relevant government has when it comes to making the stadium a reality.

The Sacramento Bee reporting Monday will be the official announcement for Sac Republic in the MLS. I wont believe it until @Bucfan56 confirms or Garber confirms. If true, then its about bloody time.

For all I know Don could actually show up on Monday and be like "Just kidding! This was fun. Lets do it again in two months."

I don’t really have any inside information to give other than the “Worst kept secret” everyone has been talking about happens to line up with the date from the Sac Bee article. I have more to say on it at some point but none of it is really earth shattering. Anyone who’s been following the club closely gets the confirmed information maybe 30 seconds after I do.

Not official until Taylor Twellman is there to announce it.

If the Sac Bee reports the sky is blue I go outside to make sure.  If they report that water is wet I turn on the faucet to double check.  That said we'll see when it happens but I'm keeping Monday open.
