Vince McMahon considers move to bring back the XFL

Recommended Posts

Some info from Dave Metlzer

Quote

AAF had spent about $80 million in its eight weeks and had another $48 million that they owed. They had only grossed $12 million in revenue, which was a combination of all revenue streams. With two more weeks of the season and playoffs, losses for the season would have probably topped $140 million. The first season of the XFL lost about $138 million, and expenses will be far higher in 2020 than they were in 2001, but they can also charge much higher ticket prices. XFL expenses will be considerably more than AAF, but revenues should be higher. They aren’t paying for television time like AAF, but realistically I can’t see Vince $350 million earmarked lasting much more tan two seasons. And the key here is that it’s a lock you are having three years of those losses, and the only way you can turn it around is to get a TV deal worth at least $150 million to $200 million per season by year four.

Of the 43 games, 24 of them will air on either FOX or ABC.

Sincere question: Are we at the point where this thread could move to the General Forum? I think it's really lost it's "Bombers and CFL" lustre....just a thought.

90% of all offseason threads are in that classification IMO.

Its a football league that is going to have a very CFL like feel to it. People should check it out when its on.. It sounds like an Americanized version of the CFL. Former coaches and everything.. Taking the best rules of the CFL and NCAA and combining it. This might work.
