ITS XFL TIME

Recommended Posts

Like most, if not all, of you I'm pretty stoked about the start of the XFL season tomorrow.

Have tickets to the Guardians/Vipers game and to avoid offending any former Zips I got seats dead center in the middle of the South end zone.

For half the game I'm wearing NY gear and the other half Tampa gear.

If you can't make it to the game it's supposed to be on FOX.

I'm surprised: lower level is pretty full.

It looks like FOX interviewed Brice Jones on the way back to the locker room at halftime.

I stumbled upon this graphic. As you can see below, the 2nd and 3rd highest viewing market for the Seattle - DC game were Cleveland and Columbus. This begs the question. When will the XFL expand to Ohio? There is clearly a thirst for more football.

If Cleveland would have built a dome...

I always thought that this market would. There’s been talk and attempts. Now there’s a modern stadium of perfect size not owned by the NFL (Tom Benson Stadium).

 

Canton had an arena team for awhile, but that was too gimmicky for the meat and potatoes fan in this region. If you look at other minor league sports, NE Ohio has four minor league baseball teams, and a G League basketball team. The Canton/Akron baseball team has been here 30 years, 

 

They could garner attention by paying homage to Canton being the birthplace of pro football and Akron being the first pro football champions. And I gotta think the U would be very interested in talking rental of the Info. And collecting parking fees. 
 

I think it would work. Esp a league that has televised games.
