VINCE IS READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL
Posted: 031618

Wants to do Football Even if it Kills Him!

Vince McMahon has that football urge again after selling $100 million of WWE stock to set up Alpha Entertainment. Alpha is a separate company from the WWE and it will begin preparation for the new incarnation of the XFL. On 1/25 Vince told reporters that the new XFL will kick off in 2020. This version will have eight teams, 40-man rosters, a 10-game regular season, and a postseason with two semifinals and a championship game. No cities have been announced yet for the league. The season would begin after the 2020 Super Bowl. He didnít announce what network the games would air on but claimed there was interest out there. Since it is a separate company the games will not run on the WWE Network or have any WWE connections at all. As far as who would play for the new league anyone signed cannot have a criminal record or even a DUI. The players will not be allowed to talk about their political opinions and must stand for the national anthem. The XFL will hire experienced football executives and McMahon won't be the public face of the league. Some of the ideas Vince mentioned were eliminating halftime, have fewer commercials and simplifying the rules so that each game would only run two hours. The original XFL ran for one season in 2001 and I donít think this one will last longer than that. It sounds like minor league football with players who couldnít make the NFL which is what the XFL was. By saying a player canít have even a DUI on their record you need robots, not human beings and telling them they canít express their opinions means the league will be full of bland semi-pro types.
