  1. XFL To Return In 2020

    One thing worth noting is that Oliver Luck's contract is multi-year for a guaranteed $20 million, so I think that does speak to Vince's intention to commit for a longer term than one season:
  2. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    I don't see him being the guy that gets it done. He choked far too many times for the Skins.
  3. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Losing Kirk Cousins and adding Alex Smith is probably the best thing that has happened to this franchise in a while. Kirk Cousins was our Tony Romo. He often made critically bad decisions in pressure situations. He was not the kind of quarterback that could carry his team to a Super Bowl, but he wanted that kind of money. The Vikings will regret signing him because they are not going to have enough room under the cap to build a team around him that can overcome his mistakes. I really don't understand why so many Skins fans were so desperate to keep him.
  4. XFL To Return In 2020

    That is just not possible though. The NFL has the vast majority of the "best talent" locked up in multi-year contracts. Getting big names to sign contracts in the XFL will take years of competition. Vince is going to have to fill out the majority of his rosters with unsigned free agents . The biggest benefit to having the first game of the season the weekend after the Superbowl is that by the time the NFL post-season starts it is crystal clear what free agents have not garnered interest from the NFL, and Vince can sign most of them for their rock bottom value.
  5. Alliance of American Football - New League In 2019

    Based on what has developed thus far, I think the XFL has a better shot at longevity than the AAF. 1. The AAF has chosen mostly smaller media markets (Salt Lake City, Memphis, etc) and only one top 10 media market (Atlanta). There isn't much advertising revenue potential in their body of market choices. 2. The XFL has "been there, done that." Vince probably learned a few things from the first go round, and he knows he is going to have to lose money for years before he builds a brand. He wouldn't be doing this again if he was only willing to lose money for one season before pulling out. 3. The XFL made a huge investment in Luck, which confirmed that Vince is pretty serious. If the XFL puts a team in Washington, DC that is the league that will draw my interest. There are like 5 thousand NCAA footbal players that graduate from college every year. The NFL takes very, very few of those and scouting is not a perfect science. Clearly these teams are going to be better than NCAA teams, but it doesn't help that the AAF and XFL will be competing for players.
  6. All Good Things "Star Trek"

    I never heard that before about needing 4 seasons to sell the show on DVD. I recall Paramount wanted to cancel Enterprise after it's third season. People on the message boards bombarded Paramount with letters and e-mails requesting that they keep the show on the air. We ultimately got a fourth season. I am not sure how much of the decision was due to the letters, but I know the fans made an effort. True. Although TNG, DS9, and Voyager did all get their full run (and despite Voyager having some bad ratings in the later seasons).
  7. All Good Things "Star Trek"

    I don't get it. That show is utter garbage. I noticed the same thing when I watched Enterprise. With TNG and DS9, it really took several episodes (or even seasons) for characters to develop to the point that I liked them. But, with Enterprise I liked all the characters and thought they interacted really well with one another right from the start (much like the original series). It still bums me out to this day that Enterprise didn't get a full 7 season run, and we didn't get to see the evolution of the Federation of Planets.
  8. All Good Things "Star Trek"

    I didn't like the 3rd season of Enterprise at all, but the 1st and 4th season are great.
  9. All Good Things "Star Trek"

    Most people dislike Nemesis, but it is the only TNG movie I liked. Definitely give DS9 a chance. It really picks up in the later seasons.
  10. All Good Things "Star Trek"

    This is a lengthy but decent review of the STD series thus far:
  11. All Good Things "Star Trek"

    It is an abomination. They are just using the Star Trek name to sell it.
  12. All Good Things "Star Trek"

    I think this is by far the least consistent version of Klingons we have ever seen. The Enterprise show did it's best to explain the discrepency between the original series Klingons and the others. There is nothing that makes sense about these new Klingons though.
  13. All Good Things "Star Trek"

    It was awful. No chance I would pay to see anymore of that. Those Klingons were bad comedy.
  14. All Good Things "Star Trek"

    It was an even bigger piece of garbage than I thought it was going to be. No way I would pay for that.
  15. Game Day Thread: #Redskins vs Raiders

    Mack Brown is simply better than Perine. Perine belongs on the practice squad instead.
