As far as I recall, Vince is putting a ton of resources into this. So it'll survive longer than the AAF at least. Probably dead in 5. So you'll have to put up with it for 5 years.

It will last one year, maybe two.

- No TV revenue, so nothing's coming in.

- Empty stadiums

- Sorry players

Just like his brain dead buddy, he might think he's going to put some resources in this and that it'll become successful, but reality is a lot different than that. The TV ratings for the AAF were absolutely abysmal. More to the point I've never heard so many people boo something so pointless as when these videos come on the screen at WWE events.

Maybe it will end up on the WWE Network.

I wish there was a San Diego team.

I'm hoping it at least distracts Vince for awhile from micromanaging WWE as much.

The XFL's TV deal at least gives it a much bigger exposure (ESPN and FS1) than the AAF (which had one week on CBS and then shuffled to a cable network not many people had) and the funding is much more secure.  It's all up to the quality of play and if there is actually a demand for football outside of the fall/winter.

I think there is room in the world for a pro developmental league that isn't the NCAA, but do we need it on TV for six or eight hours twice a week for the entire spring? Probably not.

Opposite Attractions - a comedy design podcast where two idiots design their very own theme parks. SEASON 6 IS UNDERWAY!
