The deal is official closed and “the keys” to the XFL have been handed over. I humbly accept and promise to put my callouses to hard work building our new brand. Congrats to my partners @DanyGarciaCo & #GerryCardinale and our sharp, hungry team. #XFLOwner #ForTheLoveOfFootball

    This is a great day for this league. Now comes the hard work to make this a self sustaining body with a goal of long term survival in the world of professional football. I think a goal that is anything less than this is sure to fail in the eyes of those of us who really want to see a new league prosper. New innovations are fine, but, tricks and gimmicks will only get you so far. My advice ( for what its worth ) is, solidify your base cities first, then if things are going well, open up new cities . Trust me there are tons of them out here waiting for the chance to join the pro football fraternity. I hope, one day Birmingham is one of them . ******* FORGE ON ******

    Let’s rock. Good luck to Dany, Rock, and the partners…and the players and people that make this something better.

    Oh and change Houston’s colors to something a little more powder blue if you know what I mean.
