Has Ballers just become real life?

Ricky Jerret to the XFL rumours begin now.

I just thought the same thing.

Man, people love throwing away millions on pipe dreams.

Can't wait until it's announced that Dwayne managed to negotiate a better XFL TV deal than Vince ever got.

Unless the Rock is actually doing Vince's bidding, it is going to be something watching Vince fuck over the Rock just like he did to Oliver Luck

Its technically not a done deal because the creditors immediately filed a compliant saying the price is undervalued

However - considering the Rock's bid was the only bid - most likely the bankruptcy court will approve the sale

In an interview with the Athletic, Dany Garcia said they love having 8 teams for now (though most likely will relocate some teams).

IF the try to have a Spring 2021 season - it most likely would be done via a one city bubble.

In my opinion, considering its the Rock and how desperate (in theory) networks will be for live content - they might be able to get a passable one year TV deal

I suspect due to the somewhat successful Titan Games, NBC will be up there on the possible networks.

I need to find the original context because I am positive this is a situation where Dave is totally clueless but he was saying on the radio show that Dany Garcia was bitching yesterday that all the headlines only mentioned the Rock and she was all "I paid the same amount of money and will be doing more of the work"

And while I am positive that statement is 100% correct - she has also been with the Rock for long enough and knows how PR works that anything besides saying this is a joking manner is unbelievable.

Not to Meltzer though - THIS ISN'T A GOOD SIGN FOR THIS VERSION OF THE LEAGUE!!!!

"Bitching" amounted to two tweets that were actually replies to other tweets (one was someone bitching, the other was taking a shot at a site's headline that didn't mention her at all in the story).  Both were pretty justifed, so Meltzer is of course, off base.

 

That said, Duane has been going out of his way to make sure she's getting her due.

Yeah, I listened to that this morning and just facepalmed. I also have to couch these statements by saying I like Meltzer, but man he almost always reads the room wrong on stuff like this.
