XFL at “Ground Level”? USFL/XFL Scouting, Lucky Whitehead BC Lions Interview | Episode 75 – USFLTs?

Is the XFL at “ground level” when it comes to planning for their 2023 season? XFL and USFL scouts are making the rounds, Lucky Whitehead from the BC Lions, Danny Austin from the Calgary Sun & Herald plus USFL historian and author Paul Reeths join the show!
In his recent podcast “Go Long”, Jim Monos the Senior Director of Football Operations spoke about the XFL being at “ground level” moving into the 2023 season, should fans be alarmed? We play the clip and chat through our thoughts and welcome your own. Plus XFL and USFL scouts are on the move, as the USFL goes another week without announcing the remainder of their head coaches for the 2022 season due to kick off in April.
We welcome Lucky Whitehead onto the show! The recently re-signed BC Lions star wide receiver talks through his injury and return to the field, plans to excel and succeed in 2022 and what it means for his team, the BC Lions to put their faith and trust in him moving into the 2022 CFL season.
Danny Austin, longtime “frenemy” of the show from the Calgary Sun & Herald stops by to chat about the recent roster moves for the Calgary Stampeders. From Derek Dennis being re-signed to the reworked contract of Bo Levi Mitchell to help retain backup QB Jake Maier, there’s plenty to chew on in terms of off-season moves for Calgary as they look ahead to the 2022 CFL season. We also take a deep-dive into how the CFL could improve their marketing efforts with or without the XFL moving forward, and what, if anything the recently announced Genius Sports deal means for the CFL’s attempt to grow its fanbase.
Finally, USFL historian and author Paul Reeths of the book The United States Football League, 1982-1986 joins the program to chat through some recent potential missteps involving the USFL’s return to play, was the lack of information heading into a spring 2022 USFL kickoff means, and what the USFL should be doing to incorporate in its past, which is seems ready to take advantage of, but hesitant to acknowledge.

This all plus recent CFL off-season notes and movements, USFL and XFL scouts are in the news, Fan Controlled Football has a recent cash influx, is Antonio Brown headed to the USFL, FCF or neither and why the FCF social media should stop bullying its fans online. Strap in and grab a sandwich, it’s a jam-packed show!
