Orlando was one of the better XFL markets and had the best team in the league until their starting quarterback Jeff Brohm was injured for the season. Talent is too thin in a start up league to let...

I completely agree. The XFL lost $65 million 17 years ago in 2001. No question expenses will clear $100 million in 2018. Vince must also know this and be fully willing to put up and risk the...

I agree losing big is the reality he is looking at, but shelling out millions is the only chance he has of getting a tv contract and approaching anything that competes with the NFL.

I don't disagree with much of what you said. I just think if he is intent on doing it despite the financial losses, he needs to go big instead of following the FXFL model.

I have to imagine he knows that. He dropped about $65 million the first time around back in 2001.

Do you know what the statistics are up there and down here? How many people of color are killed by law enforcement in America each year?

Superficial... *scoff*

I agree with all of that, but if he doesn't invest in players that people recognize the league is certain to die a slow death. He will have no chance at a television contract, or drawing more than a...

I think Vince is planning on going for a mandatory stand for the anthem rule, so "the QB who must not be named" is probably not an option on the table.

UFL Access

Did anyone here ever frequent the old UFL Access website? It is now long gone, but I remember so much of the banter there. Lots of early optimism for another league that inevitably tanked.

The XFL had so many mistakes, but you're right that no pre-season was a big one. Some others:

The FXFL had more of an excuse for that though because they had less money in the bank than the XFL.
