Too late, we have our new alt. Football league. Quietly just walk back the XFL Hillbilly ball league and let it die.  Nobody wants that embarrassment to return.

Why compete in a saturated market?

establish a presence where there is a demand - developmental leagues are ideal for smaller national markets  where operating costs are not as high. 

I’m just saying that there’s a team for me to really root for in the XFL. I don’t disagree with what you said though.

Oh no! New York doesn't have a 3rd level minor league spring Football team to fill in the spaces between... The Yankees, Jets, Giants, Mets, Red Bulls, Knicks, Nets, Devils, Rangers, Islanders, Cyclones, FDNY Bravest/NYPD Finest, the Harlem Globetrotters, and Broadway. What ever will you do with your March's? How will you live without the crassly named NY/NJ Hitmen playing sub Texas H.S. level Football??

It'll be good to have around in a couple years when the NFL is in the middle of their lockout

To be fair, I thought the new XFL is going to be more.... wholesome than last time.

I wish the AAF would of made a Mississippi team. We want something here. Plus there are a lot of great ball players coming out of college around here that just don’t make it to the league.

Birmingham has a metro population of 1.5M people while Mississippi's largest metro area - Jackson - only has a metro population just over 500K people. 

The league is about smaller regional football-obsessed markets, IMO, and Birmingham has more lure than anything in poor-ass Mississippi where the the per capita is about $6K more in Alabama ($26K compared to $20K per capita in Mississppi)

 

plus Bama players who don't get drafted need somewhere to play.  Lol.

Yeah, that’s true. Don’t know where they would even put one here. Poorest state in America.

I like the uniforms except for the all black Ones and the yellow and green duds. Numbers on the helmets are ok. I miss kickoffs

I am rooting for the Express in the AAF though. Not looking too hot today unfortunately. 

Damn you went and picked the worst team in the league? Lol. I'd rethink that

Some interesting outcomes in 2021 for the NFL lockout

 

1) NFL brings in replacement players to play in the NFL from the AAF

2) NFL doesn't do option 1 and the XFL is the only league playing in 2021

3) total curveball and the NFL players go play for the XFL (0% chance)

I feel comfortable in saying that most of these guys are awful at finances. Last lockout they were taking out loans on future checks. The XFL will have job candidates if that happens.

I think it's the opposite. The AAF was smart enough to largely stick to markets that

1) Don't have NFL football

2) Aren't too cold to sit outdoors in February

3) Are associated with local football talent. (I.e. the Birmingham team has lots of former Alabama and Auburn players on it that will make college fans interested)

Nobody in New York is going to support a minor league football team. People in places like Birmingham, Orlando, and San Antonio might.

We have cuse and now St. John’s again in b-ball. Cornell Union and Clarkson in hockey and even cuse and Army had good years in football.

It’s 36 degrees today - did you want to sit outside to watch regular season minor-league football?

Serious question - why would a young person such as yourself not leave?

By my count, the first page of the forum now features six (6) different threads about this piddlysh*t semipro football league.
