    I feel like if they would get support from the NFL they could actually turn this into quite the developmental league. Create a farm system and you'd be able to attract so many great players away from the NCAA with the ability to actually pay these players.

    When I read the Rock and his group I pictured D'Lo Brown, Kama and Mark Henry all there with him.

    I wholeheartedly disagree. The AAF was on a perfect track to be exactly what is needed- a feeder league for the NFL where players can showcase their talents in the NFL's offseason in order to earn a tryout, and use the league to work on things needed to make the jump. Otherwise, every year there are players who are just good enough to not quite make teams' rosters or taxi squads but have the talent if given the chance. With an affiliation to the NFL they could the testing ground for new rules and equipment as well. In their short history, I think the product on the field was generating enough interest to make it financially, they just didn't have the backing to get there.

    The XFL was doing much better than the AAF, and they had plans for next year to up the talent in the league, but the pandemic happened and Vince decided to cash out instead. It sucks but it is what it is. It was certainly booming in St Louis, who just lost the Rams not too long ago, and Washington DC, where our NFL team has sucked for decades.

    We just need to implement a European football model where the best team in the XFL gets to move up to the NFL and the worst team has to move down. Obviously no NFL team would ever agree, but it'd be exciting and elevate the XFL a ton.

    European football just has it down. It would be genius to do that


    The reason it also works - and its a better system- is there isnt a draft system in European football.
