The criminal record thing sounds stupid and prohibitive to success. As is being upset about the idea of the XFL being a feeder league for the NFL. The more guys who are able to get to the NFL by performing in your league in the early stages, the better and more legitimate your league will be in the long run.

Guessing that's all just posturing.

I can see how a league like this would work. The schedule perfectly bridges the gap from the Super Bowl to the start of baseball and the NFL draft. The issue is we don't know who his football people are or how a bunch of teams owned by one person will operate.

McMahon knows production and presentation. He knows running an entertainment organization. He does not know football. And it sounds like he's putting a lot of the football part of this venture on his own plate.

I'm legit sad if the criminal record thing precludes Manziel from playing in this league.

There could be some success as long as they continue to not compete directly with the NFL. Bridging that gap after the season is perfect.

Who is going to ref this league? I doubt the NFL will allow their refs to work in this league. Maybe some of the college refs will come up. Bad refs can really sink this league also. Also rule changes will be interesting.

Bridging the gap of paying kids that want to get paid. The JUCO guys and your one offs like Gordon and Clarette

Signing the top high schoolers so they don't go to college might be the only way it works.

I think taking people who don't make it in the NFL would still work, just play your games in between the SB and March Madness when there isn't much else on.

Also, I would root for any team that Manziel ends up on.

NFL loses talent every year, they have no where else to go unless they catch on in Canada.

People will still treat it as NFL version of AAA, well ... because it is.

If they can keep the budget low enough, it could work, but I don't believe Vince will do that.

Just give us normal football on a channel we can find. Save the expensive stuff for later if you want.

Maybe Vince and Wilpon can make a deal for Tim Tebow.

Championship game is the day after the draft. Season starts week after Super Bowl. It will fold after a year.
