    What better way to capitalize on the NFL's decline than by restarting a league that would manage to leave even more former players braindead when they're older?

    I mean, we got to remember that the XFL failed mainly cause of the fact that in Week 2 the game like went off the air for 30 mins. If not for that it could have been a pretty good success. I'm all for it because I love football and the more football the better IMO.

    There is only one professional football league and that’s the NFL. There is not going to be another football league that will ever compete with them..... period. It would be a foolish investment to pursue by anyone as it will never gain a sustainable fan base.

    I don't even remember the XFL.
    I remember the USFL.

    I will admit the XFL had some pretty cool team names:

    Chicago Enforcers
    New York/New Jersey Hitmen
    San Francisco Demons
    Birmingham Bolts
    Orlando Rage
    Memphis Maniax
    Las Vegas Outlaws
    Los Angeles Xtreme (ok, that one wasn't very cool)

    :idunno: Doesn't mean it won't be cool to have another one to watch.

    If McMahon was willing to work with the NFL on a Spring league it would work.

    Maybe Oakland, San Diego and St. Louis could get XFL teams.

    Well I saw a bit ago Vince has a major sports announcement at 3pm EST so I'm sure it is.

    From something I read last night, it's suppose to be 2020 when it returns.

    Isn't this like having 2 NBAs at the same time?

    Coke or Pepsi anyone?

    As much as I'm happy for this, XFL will not compete with the NFL.

    Let's remember a couple of things .... the suspended camera was invented by and for the XFL. Today it's everywhere, but back then, that was a huge innovation. Second ... and my prime reason for liking the XFL (when I hate almost all sports) was pay. You played, you got paid. You won, you got paid more. No million dollar contracts. No sitting out 4 weeks because of a bruised pinky. No playing for 12 seconds every 5 minutes. If you weren't wining, you weren't getting paid. Likewise, if you weren't on the field because of bad conduct .. you didn't get paid. That alone, for me, makes it worth a second look.

    I can see why it failed as a business model.

    Lousy policies often, if not always leads to bankruptcies.

    Why? Do people not realize why it failed the first time or do y'all just like remembering it failed??

    If I had to put it in one sentence, wrestling fans didn't want WWF Football, and football fans didn't want WWF Football.

    It's not been wwf in years. Shows what you truly know.

    It was WWF from 1998 to 2002, while the XFL's one season was in 2001. So technically, it was still WWF.

    So that's why at first it had high ratings right? But stuff happened that made people not want to watch like you know a game being cut out? That hurt it among other things.

    Who knew @Blaze88 was such a big McMahon fan. LOL

    No one should want this. If the same model is used and applies today that is.

    With all the new scientific studies about concussions and all that stuff comes with I'd be shocked if is a free for all like it was before.
