Vince McMahon is bringing back the XFL!*
We first heard whispers of this when Vince/Alpha Entertainment starting registering trademarks and forming a corporation back around the time the anthem controversy was reaching a peak. That would suggest that the league will be less XTREME football and more MAGA football, which also lines up with its launch date in 2020.
We’ve set up
*Details to come.
Last time around it made it one season. By the time you get around to putting on this hullabaloo, you’ve paid for the whole year and paid deposits on stuff. Whether they get to year two, or even to day one of year one, is the whole story.
Vince promises a simpler, faster game. This is a reaction to the state of the NFL, in which the consumer spends three and half hours watching ads and breaking down the Zapruder film, punctuated by brief outbreaks of football. There’s a number of ways to do this: cut down on the number of ads, keep the clock running, shorten the play clock, force teams to go no-huddle (fans of service academy football will understand the joy and efficiency of a two-hour football game). There’s also some dumb rules likely to be involved, designed to cut down on anthem protests and get publicity.
Eight teams with 40-man rosters is 320 players. One in a hundred gets arrested playing football professionally? No problem.
MAGA football in an election year? There’s definitely going to be a Trump tie-in, and honestly it’ll be a lot of fun.
They’re good about closing off top sections of stadiums and keeping things reasonable. They also set the record for beer sales at the Cirtus Bowl during the first Orlando Rage games. It’s a live event, put together by an organisation with a solid track record selling tickets and putting asses in seats. The NFL isn’t nearly as concerned with that sort of thing.
This is assuming, of course, that teams are formed and play starts. If the whole thing folds before somebody takes a snap, bets are off.
This is MAGA football. They might play the anthem for the whole game.
Some might “leave,” as in bail on the twilight years of their NFL careers for something more exciting and lucrative. Backup quarterbacks will be in demand, finding good pasers is every football league’s problem and making it rain on some hapless kid with a big arm NFL scouts talked themselves into before realizing he’s actually not quite there could be the way to get them.
Vince McMahon is going to own all the teams, but don’t put it past McMahon to allow some celebrities to nominally “own” teams as a way of giving them some identity. Also lets the league have some kayfabe drama without actually influencing on-field action.
