Ever since it was announced that The XFL will be returning in February 8th & 9th, 2020, the league has been making a lot of major adjustments and additions to make sure that they will succeed this time around, which was unfortunately not the case when The XFL was first established back in 2001.
One of the major additions that The XFL did this time around that wasn’t present during the time The Original XFL was up and running is naming Oliver Luck as their Commissioner & CEO. Luck together with XFL Founder & WWE Chairman Vince McMahon adopted a lot of changes and additions this time around that could really help the league in the long run.
Part of those changes which will be included in The New XFL are the speed of the game, increasing meaningful on-field action, creating more in-game rhythm & flow and improving player safety. The XFL is not taking any chances in the rebirth of the league as they want to make sure that everything goes smoothly and they reach their ultimate goal of entertaining The American Households and succeeding in The Professional Football Industry.
Other notable additions that The XFL has made aside from naming Oliver Luck as their Commissioner & CEO are the hirings of Former NFL Head Coaches Bob Stoops & Pep Hamilton. Stoops & Hamilton will really make it big in The XFL as their vast experiences and knowledge will no doubt sky-rocket their careers as they will also boost The XFL in a level the league hasn’t been to and wants to reach one day.
The question now is who will the players be once the league relaunches in February 2020. According to Alex Marvez, The XFL will reportedly be going hard on players who will be coming from The Transfer Portal & JUCO, as seen in his tweet below:
This is an expected talent pipeline the XFL may attempt to tap. People in the know think they will, at the least, go hard after JUCO players & those in the transfer portal. Landscape should become clearer as well after Alliance season is over. Now, back to watching Honor Rising https://t.co/zTaemd6avj— Alex Marvez (@alexmarvez) February 23, 2019
It was said that The CFL has already started doing this as they have recently hired Former Auburn Wide Receiver Kyle Davis from The Transfer Portal and opted to turn him Pro in Canada. It was also said that XFL Commissioner & CEO Oliver Luck recently said on a radio show that he was part of when he was making some media rounds that the league is scouting international players with the possibility of each team having 1 international player, similar to what they did with NFL Europe.
For all the available players in The Transfer Portal, you can check out this link. It will be interesting to see what The XFL will be doing to hire their players and where they will be getting their players from, but one thing is for sure and that is that the gameplay of The New XFL will definitely be more exciting, exhilarating and heart-pounding than ever before.
