Here we go again.  It’s back, the XFL.  By 2020, the WWE Founder and Chairman, Vince McMahon, promises that the alternative to the NFL will rise from the dead.

He promises no frills and no politics and no players with criminal records which sounds more like the anti-NFL. 

It’s no secret that the NFL is experiencing an image problem right now.  While the TV ratings have slowly declined over the last few year, it’s still the biggest and baddest on the block.  So why another football league

There’s a core group, a group that has been disenchanted by the NFL and the money, the protests, the game time, the penalties, the off the field stuff……that the XFL can initially cash in on and then hope and pray that they tell 2 friends and so on and so on. 

Will it last?  No, of course not but I think we’ll find it entertaining for a short period of time.  Ultimately, we’ll return to the NFL where the players are elite, and the competition and traditions are so much better than anywhere, any other sport in the world.
