THE OTHER RANDOM FOOTBALL LEAGUES THREAD

Recommended Posts

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has just placed a ban on gatherings of more than 250 people in the Seattle area due to the COVID-19 outbreak.  So, this weekend's game between Seattle and LA (if it happens as scheduled) will be not only in an empty stadium, it will be with absolute bare bones staff/personnel/broadcasters.  

The Dragons are expected to comment today on their plans. 

XFL confirmed the game will take place as scheduled without any fans.

Yeah - a few folks have said the expectation is the XFL will suspend the season but I haven't seen anything official yet

wow. Vince finally gets a modestly successful football league going, and a few weeks in the season is cancelled because of a virus.

It's weird that they said suspend instead of cancelled since they aren't starting up again until next year.

SO with that said - apparently XFL players will be allowed to sign with NFL teams starting today (since the XFL league year is over)

A Seattle Dragons player has tested positive for Covid-19.  The team and the three teams they played are now being asked to self-quarantine

I'm not going to lie, XFL was fun to watch and a million times better than their first run. I thought it was an actual viable product and it sucks that it was successful and it got shut down anyway.

I was really enjoying it. More than I expected, by far.

Congrats to @Lawful Metal, Houston ended up at the top of one league, at least. And, as far as we know, they didn't even have to cheat!

Woohoo!  First undefeated season in XFL History!!!

Also I heard that PJ Walker was getting interest from Seattle, Denver, and other places (Not Houston, apparently, but they have a truly shitty GM).  Good for him.  hope some of the other guys can get a sniff at training camps whenever those happen.
