With two more team presidents signing on, the start of The Spring League, and significant financial news coming out, it was a very busy week on the road to 2020!
Are XFL team presidents more important hires than coaches? We debate! Plus, we examine how the XFL’s sound financial plan and quality hires for key roles sets itself apart from the failing AAF experiment.
We are all business on this stop en route to 2020! Join us for some more good, crisp XFL talk!
XFL L.A. is the first team to get a team president as Heather Brooks Karatz, formerly of the MLS’ LAFC, assumed the role of the head business person of the franchise. This week we take a look at what Karatz’ role entails and why the league gave L.A. a team president before a head coach.
While business moves were made in the XFL this week, Football moves will be made when the league runs tests along with the coaches and players of The Spring League. As we get ready for all of the information to come out of The Spring League in Austin, TX, this week features a lengthy conversation on players, data, and rules to key on throughout this scouting bonanza.
The XFL took the week off from announcing another head coach/general manager, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to talk about! With NFL free agency dominating the news this week, it is time to take a look at some potential Tier 1 QBs that the XFL could be targeting. We also get even deeper into the details within the research and development of new rules that are being tested at Your Call Football and The Spring League! Join us for some more good, crisp Football talk on the road to 2020!
