Either they compete with the NFL and run out of cash or they are a minor winter/spring league and people lose interest. By the way, could there be a worse time to start a professional football league?

Yeah 2009/2010/2011 when the UFL tried. Right now with the kneeling controversy crap being an actual near billionaire conservative business man he might see a niche that makes money.

Be interested to see if they allowed Frosh/Sophomores in college to play. If they do, this could be a game changer.

I've said before that the best way to make a viable professional football league is to allow high school seniors to get drafted and make money right out of high school until they are eligible for the NFL draft.

That way, you can showcase some of the best young players in the country and people might watch, unlike with just having NFL rejects.

That, and it would help parity in college football because programs like Alabama and Ohio State won't be able to horde the elite players.

Of course, McMahon is just going to go for the pro-wrestling-ized version of the NFL that will eventually fail.

Id like to see the teams made up of these players: a handful of veteran players, the rest made up of guys with 3 years in the league. That satisfies the three year out of high school rule for the NFL, as well as gives guys from college a few more years to prove themselves at a possible higher level then college, and get paid for their talents and likeness, something the NCAA doesn't do.

Not sure I would have come back as the XFL, maybe rebranded as another name. But with Vince still involved, the PR could be a nightmare from the beginning anyway.

What cities are the teams going to be in?

Thoughts?

I think Georgia State just found a tenant for its stadium. Maybe they could get a million bucks in rent.

History says they will not be changing any games.

First time around, the league average attendance was around 22k per game. I'll be surprised if this thing actually happens.
