Could WWE chairman Vince McMahon's XFL rival the NFL?

Roman-Reigns-Football

After the XFL's miserable first run, the current political climate and the increased consumption of digital content could be the flawless time for McMahon to try to correct the one big failure of his career.

The XFL was a spectacular financial failure in its first run, losing McMahon and U.S. television broadcaster NBC a reported US$70 million.

McMahon said the XFL did not want players with a criminal record and even a DUI would exclude an athlete from a contract.

Brown was re-elected in the federal riding of Barrie twice more, but remained a backbencher in Harper's Conservative government. Jones and Clark said the PC caucus would "immediately consult with party officials and members on best way to move forward".

Here are 10 things that McMahon said about the XFL that hold some serious weight regarding the league's future. "We want someone who wants to take a knee to do their version of that on their personal time". McMahon, of course, is friends with Trump. "As we move towards kickoff, we look forward to listening and implementing innovative ideas from players, coaches, medical experts, technology executives, the media and most importantly football fans". Meltzer added network television could be a tough get for The XFL as all of the major networks such as ABC, CBS, and FOX all carry the NFL.

In his announcement about reviving the XFL, McMahon said he would not allow lawbreakers to participate in the league.

We'll see if that holds true if Johnny Manziel comes knocking, but for now it's a hardline stance.

The sheriff's office says it is praying for the wife and family of the fallen deputy and asks that you keep them in their prayers. The vehicle was returned to the registered owner, and the two women with warrants were booked into the Adams County Jail.

A statement released by the XFL says it aims to deliver a "fan-centric, innovative, experience" with the focus on a "family-friendly environment". Obviously teams will go where the money is, but McMahon didn't rule out cities that have National Football League teams, citing Pittsburgh as an example. Running back Rod Smart, famously nicknamed "He Hate Me", and quarterback Tommy Maddox, the XFL's MVP, were among those who made the most of their days in the sparsely watched league. McMahon never was scared of a little competition.

The league will own the eight teams. Since it's not a franchise model, the league will sport a uniform salary cap and punishment system, among other factors. "There were really good football players".
