    So, you're saying Bryce Petty isn't going to be out of a job?

    Timing is much better this time. The NFL is on the decline and they may be able to snag some big name college players by offering more money now with the nfl rookie cap in place. If they can figure out a way to not be liable for concussions maybe they'll even allow tackling without a flag.

    I hope they do this right. Please give us what the NFL used to be Vince.

    Sounds like a Smackdown to me..

    Maybe they have the two opposing Captains hurl a few insults at each other pregame ..then some Midget Wrestling or Women Tag Team for the Halftime Show...

    Team Names: NY Undertakers , LA Randy Savages, Miami HulkHogans

    All the Teams must have women who are at least Double Ds up front as Mascots

    ratings thru the roof!!

    True but this won't be done right.
    McMahon wants to take the ultimate team game and make it more individualistic while mixing in wrestling themes. It's a joke.

    The USFL was a great spring league.
    Wish it would've lasted but of course Trump ruined that also.

    the plan is to have 8 teams, all owned by McMahon's company. No outside investors. If that's the case then they aren't going to be able to afford to poach big name college players.

    it will be similar to WWE - all the players in the league get a salary paid by McMahon's organization - for peanuts.

    he thinks the XFL failed because of the gimmicks but that's not true. The gimmicks are the only thing that attracted people to the XFL. It failed because it was sloppy, inferior football. By not bringing in outside investors, going at it alone without football people, and paying players peanuts, he is insuring it will be sloppy inferior football again

    yeah it does. I do agree that there is a real opportunity for another league right now but I think this one is going at it wrong

    Rod smart. He played in the nfl for a while after the league folded.
    I have no reason for knowing that but I do

    Fuck that bullshit.....version 1.0 was a retarded shitshow. I literally watched 15 minutes of the first game and knew I saw enough. Never watched again
    I've seen enough shitty football in the NFL this year, don't need a more watered down version with even more shenanigans

    If there was room for more pro football then arena football would have caught on and gotten a TV contract.

    Pro football is over-exposed right now. There's too much of it and adding a parody league isn't going to fix that problem.
