OT: XFL making a return
https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/20...065116001/

World Wrestling Entertainment announced that founder Vince McMahon will make "a major sports announcement" on Thursday, which will likely mark the return of the XFL.

ESPN reported that McMahon is attempting to start another professional football league, and CBS Sports reported that "the return of the XFL will be made official Thursday," adding that the league is not expected to start again until 2020.

McMahon is set to make the announcement at 3 p.m. ET

If McMahon wants to invest hundreds of millions into a losing football program, he should just donate it to his alma mater.

Sacrasm but watch this turn into a minor league of sorts for players who either don't want to go to college because of grades or because they just want to get paid.

Only chance Vince has is to put it in the spring and early summer. Give people their football fix in between the Superbowl and the start of NFL camps. As long as Vince knows he can't go head to head with the shield and has tempered expectations for what the league can be, it has a chance to be successful.

Not for "hundreds of millions" he couldn't.

Vince is from the Carolinas. He only sold off roughly 10% of his WWE stock.

Look, the man is a billionaire. He may just be looking to become the principle investor.

I'd be surprised if Birmingham isn't one of the markets that will get an XFL team. Would present another use to the proposed downtown stadium.

I agree with others that the league needs to operate in the spring/summer to be successful.
