Oliver Luck to be CEO and Commissioner of XFL

Recommended Posts

Sounds like Vince is trying to get an experienced hand behind the wheel of the XFL this time.  

 

Not that I think it will matter.  Rival sports leagues just don't work.

??

You mean that they merged with the rival leagues?  

 

Because most rival leagues fail but best case scenario always seems to be merger.

 Both absorbed franchises from a rival league

   The NFL did it twice 

  MLB was formed by the merger of 2 Rival Leagues

That's my point.  Rival Leagues don't last, the system naturally creates one top flight pro league.  

 

The best case scenario is that your league merges with the NFL.  Worst case is that it fails completely like the last XFL.

I got a better idea... The NFL will have to merge with the XFL! Get on board the hype train!

I think Oliver is making a poor decision.   He should have tried to hook up with the AAF.   They are looking like a better run outfit and are set to start play in early 2019.  They seem to have their stuff together on this.  

 

They have 8 teams with Head Coaches already. 

Atlanta - Brad CHildress

Birmingham - Tim Lewis

Memphis - Mike Singletary

Orlando - Steve Spurrier

Phoenix - Rick Neuheisel

Salt Lake - Dennis Erickson

San Antonia - Mike Riley

San Diego - Mike Martz

 

Executives

Charlie Ebersol, co-founder and CEO

Bill Polian, co-founder and Head of Football

Troy Polamalu, Head of Player Relations

J.K. McKay, Head of Football Operations

Tom Veit, Head of Business Operations

Hines Ward, Player Relations Executive

Jared Allen, Player Relations Executive and investor

Justin Tuck, member of Player Engagements Board Of Advisers
