  • WWE XFL is coming to Seattle. I'm 50/50 on it. I don't know how the fans here are going react to this when the season kicks off in Feb. 2020 at C-Link. Coach Carroll is fired up about this.

    First things first - will it be capitalized enough to survive beyond a season or two. Everything about my interest flows from there.

    They have their own streaming platform, and it's an offshoot of an already profitable business. So they can at least in theory bleed longer than a startup like the AAF. We'll see though, I don't see a sustainable enough market for these leagues to be successful.

  • It may have a niche here due to the lack of winter sport teams but possibly only until the NHL comes.

    I also wonder if the Clink is too big for it? Could be cavernous depending on the interest level or require a severe amount of tarps. It's one thing to sit in the freezing cold of winter for hawks games where the standard is the best of the best.

    Another for what would be lower division football in an empty stadium.

    I don't get the Dragons name, whats that got to do with Seattle?

    Of the eight teams, I think Seattle won the best-looking logo contest.

    The name Dragons took some getting used to, though. Sonics, Seahawks, Sounders, and Mariners are relatively unique and totally Seattle. Dragons, on the other hand, could just as easily have been used by any of the other seven teams. But if we pull off a sweet looking uniform design, I think I can tolerate it.

    Yep, the new Seattle Dragons logo instantly reminded of that Sonics logo, which I've always liked, so :2thumbs:

    To a lesser extent, was also reminded of the now-defunct World League / NFL Europe team Barcelona Dragons. (The logo looks SO SIMILAR! No, not because of the logo.)

  • I'm surprised they picked only one market without an NFL team. I know they're not directly competing with them, but I still think interest would be higher in non-NFL markets, of which many are viable. I'm Washingtonian through and through, but why not Portland instead of Seattle? San Diego instead of Los Angeles? San Antonio instead of Houston or Dallas? Orlando instead of Tampa?

  • So XLF games are to begin in February 2020. Originally slated for January but I think they pushed it back. Either way, that's a heck of a fast-track schedule to get 40 players X 8 teams + coach/front office personnel all assembled at least a month or two prior to give them time for all needed preparations, training, and practices!

    I’m not a Macklemore fan by any stretch but I’ll take that song over that steaming pile of flaming crap that is BSS that the Hawks used to play pregame. Let’s get all pumped up to rip the opponents heads off then that mood killer is played.

    The last thing I think of when I hear BSS is football.

  • Our assigned quarterback has been named: Brandon Silvers out of Troy U where he broke Sam Bradford's freshman record for completion percentage. So now we have an NFL QB and an XFL QB with a 70% completion percentage. Sounds like yesterday was his first time ever in Seattle.

    Don't know if Dragons would have picked Christine Michael, but St. Louis snagged him immediately before our pick. We then selected RB Trey Williams. And then in the second round, another RB -- Kenneth Farrow. LOL.

    Interesting that even though all teams were assigned a QB before the draft commenced, Houston used their first pick to get another quarterback.
