This week’s show recaps the most eventful week for the XFL since the return was announced in January, featuring a break down of each of the 8 XFL cities and their stadiums. Alan, Vince, and Jake also discuss everything coming out of the test practices and test game being conducted by the league with junior colleges in Mississippi. This episode is loaded with XFL news you need to know as we celebrate the biggest week for the league thus far!
In a week that saw multiple reports on XFL cities being chosen, this week’s episode sets the record straight as we discuss everything you need to know when it comes to the future locations of the 8 XFL teams in 2020. As more news comes out, business is picking up and we are jam packed with great XFL talk and a huge week ahead for the league!
The XFL has a planned press event on December 5th to officially unveil the cities, but due to an accidental (or accidentally on purpose) leak on the league website, 8 cities have been named. On this episode, we discuss those 8 cities and we are joined by KSDK Sports Director Frank Cusumano to talk about his report that St. Louis will get an XFL team.
The NCAA and NFL enforce targeting in different ways but both have rules in place to keep the game safer. This week’s Hot Read features a debate on how to best enforce this rule while also preventing things like players being ejected for hits that maybe are not as violent as referees see at first glance. We also hear from XFL fans with another “XFL Coast to Coast” segment!
As part of the Cover 2, there is speculation on why the timeline on city announcements is seemingly getting pushed back. Alan, Jake, and Vince also discuss how the XFL can keep the spirit of the original incarnation of the league without having as many silly gimmicks that led to it’s downfall.
