  1. Oklahoma City, Memphis, Austin.
  2. Exactly. Take teams to places without NFL teams, and build new bonds between cities and their teams. Places like St. Louis, Oakland, San Diego, and New York. (as I make that joke I see that they dropped the NY team and are likely putting teams in Vegas [why?], San Antonio [good call], and Orlando [also a good call]).
  3. Sad news out of the Delaware indie scene; former ECWA and Right Coast Pro manager Sebastian Night, real name Brian Recker, has passed away. He leaves behind a six-year-old daughter.
  4. It’s the classic trap; a spring league is built on the assumption that Americans can’t get enough football, only to fall face-first into the harsh reality that Americans CAN indeed get enough football.
  5. I really do think the XFL is going to be the best (and last) chance for an alternative or feeder league for the NFL to pop up. FCF has potential, but it’s tied up in crypto and NFT stuff so who knows if that survives the ongoing crash. And the USFL is the USFL. But other than that? After the AFL died and the remaining indoor leagues struggled to fill the void, I still don’t see much space for alternatives. You have college football, you have the NFL, and you have the CFL if you need summer football (they just resolved their strike!). And the XFL, if that lasts.
  6. This is why I’ve just been pretending the lockout is still going on.
  7. The USFL and XFL’s existences are something that I hope does well, but I don’t know how committed I’d be to watching. The USFL is a ghost town it seems every game, and the XFL’s network deal and Dwayne’s name/money behind it only makes me more resolute that if this iteration can’t survive, then no alternative to the NFL/spring football league can. They tried with indoor football for over 30 years until they finally gave that ghost up. Outdoor football has way more failures, and is the more mainstream version, so Rocky’s probably the best chance for an alternative, or even a feeder league, in a market with no room for one, lead by a league that has repeatedly indicated it has no interest in one.
  8. Nah, it was a Japanese match, with no ring, and the dudes were grappling on the mat surrounded by like ten people towering above them despite sitting on chairs. I think they were using a toy WWE belt for the title.
  9. I've been driving myself crazy trying to find a no-ring sleaze match in front of like 10 people. One guy was doing Shibata headbutts and they were wrestling over what looked like a toy WWE belt. Does anybody know anything about it? I know I'm not good with names, but I'm hoping this place will know.
  10. That asshole stealing money from a team dumb enough to give it to him is just one of the reasons I will never forgive Rob Manfred and the MLBPA for coming to terms and ending the lockout.
  11. Only really watched Austin/Owens, and I’m glad I did. In an era where many main events are micromanaged and look way too polished and choreographed, that match had enough grittiness and (controlled, of course) chaos to serve as one last swan song both for Austin’s career and the Attitude Era he flourished in. What’s more; the fact that Kevin Owens worked his ass off carrying this feud by himself for a month and got rewarded by being his idol’s last opponent, and got to do a motherfucking STUNNER to him just goes to show how much trust that place has in him. I have never tried to hide my feelings on WWE as a company, but I’m not above pointing out when they do good things, and this was a case of them underpromising (we thought Austin was gonna merk KO and that would be that) and overdelivering (a fucking MATCH), and good for them.
  12. I’m friends with the woman running this account, and I’m really excited for what she helps create.
  13. They’re still paying 50% of his salary and cap space. Fletcher needs to be fired and never allowed to hold a job in hockey again. For now, though, I’m a Panthers fan.
  14. Any room on the bandwagon? I said I was gonna follow G wherever he went, and I stand by that.
