XFL Sued by TOGETHXR Over Trademark Infringement! USFL Week 8 Preview | Ep. 95 – The XFL Gets Sued!

The XFL is being sued! TOGETHXR, owned in part by Sue Bird is suing “The Rock’s XFL” over trademark infringement. Plus we welcome ESPN’s Kevin Seifert, XFL News Hub’s Mike Mitchell, and Mark Drumheller of Yahoo Sports to chat XFL, CFL, preview week 8 of USFL action, and more!

TOGETHXR, with a founding group comprised of Sue Bird, Alex Morgan, Chloe Kim, and Simone Manuel is suing the XFL over trademark infringement. They claim the XFL’s recently rebranded logos look and feel “confusingly similar” to TOGETHXR’s logos. The group claims to have made repeated attempts to contact the XFL and the XFL’s legal teams and has now resorted to a lawsuit as a way to remedy the situation. Is the XFL’s new rebrand in danger? Time will tell but this is another wrinkle in the already stretched out and fatigued relaunch of the XFL property under the helm of Dany Garcia, Dwayne Johnson, and Redbird Capital.

Kevin Seifert of ESPN joins the show to share his thoughts on the ongoing XFL 3.0 launch as it relates to the alternative football landscape. Kevin Seifert spent years covering the XFL 2.0 relaunch in 2019 and 2020 and has loads of insights to provide when looking at the new regime’s relaunch as it relates to Oliver Luck and Company’s 2020 efforts. Is the XFL working behind the scenes to provide a stellar on-field experience for their 2023 XFL relaunch, or should more be known by the public at this stage in time? We discuss.

Finally, long-time friend of the show and contributor to XFL, USFL, and CFL News Hub Mike Mitchell joins the program for a late-night record session covering EVERYTHING XFL, USFL, CFL, and more. We cover the XFL-TOGETHXR lawsuit, go over the latest XFL coaching rumors including Bob Stoops to Dallas and Anthony Becht to St. Louis and wonder “what the heck ever happened to that rumored June 1st announcement date?” Lots to go over with Mike Mitchell in what should prove to be an extended and in-depth look into the world of the XFL, USFL, and CFL.
