“Former XFL QB Jordan Ta'amu is signing with the #Chiefs, per agent @kenny_zuckerman.”
In a world where major league lacrosse has existed for 20 years, why can’t this football league?
XFL ended up being a net positive for these guys. Looking forward to more success from the league
I don’t watch NCAA for the specific players, except for the good ones who will end up in the NFL. I watch NCAA for the football.. personally I could see how someone could take out “NCAA” in that sentence and replace it with “XFL”

Hey guys. Need an opinion if im insane for not already smashing accept on this trade. I would give up DJ Moore in exchange for Mclauren, the 1.09, 2.03 and 2.05. My other wr are Davante, Godwin, Lockett, Landry and Cooks. I obviously take the deal right???
Its all about money for any XFL player, but that’s not going to help the league who needs to increase merchandise, ticket sakes and advertising sales enough to keep the league in business. The business model doesn’t work.
@Bren1117 I’m 99% sure that’s Jordan Lewis. CB for the Cowboys.
They do not have huge advertising deals! They are minimal. The goal of broadcasting games is to make money doing it, not to be able to do it for free. What about their model are you so fond of? Too much of anything is saturation. That's what the XFL is. The game hardly sells itself. Look at the attendance and the TV ratings. Outside of St Louis, they went down every week.
@Shayner fair enough, but McMahon already has 3 years of funds set aside so it'll last at least that long. Then it'll all come down to what kind of TV deals they can get, which won't be as much as the NCAA gets, but it won't have to be. Only time will tell.
The NFL & AFL were failing til they got their non-profit designation in the 60s. The XFL is gonna be fine, their model is better than any league has set up. They have free local & cable broadcasting for every game for 3 yrs. They have huge advert deals, & the player contracts are very well set. Don't do too much, bring enough drama, & the game sells itself
The goal of broadcasting is to get your product in front of the consumer, secondary is gaining profits from the broadcasting. Fox & ESPN are footing the bill for the broadcast while holding majority of advert rights to the programming & the XFL has huge deals in place for stadium adverts & other advert deals. Almost no business makes money in its first year. It'll take time to see a leveling off, there's always a huge bump when something new shows up. We're locked in to another 2yrs, it'll interesting to see how they spin their 1st season going into the 2nd
What are these huge advertising deals that you're speaking of? How do you know what their sponsors are spending? Do you have any clue how much it costs to rent and staff a stadium? You're right about broadcasting goals and having to start somewhere in addition to new businesses starting slow, but attendance and television ratings went down every week (outside of St Louis) which isn’t a good trend to set as your first year of business unfolds. It’ll be interesting to see what the next few years look like, but it appears to be trending towards another attempt at a football league that won’t make it. They really need to get better QBs too. Outside of the two who just jumped to the NFL, QB play was bad.
CHANGE THE PIC MODS. THAT'S NOT HIM
Congrats to the young man...
@Lets_Cook yes, Moore will probably do great this year, but the draft picks are what clinch it.
