The New York Guardians are located a mere 10 miles away from the media companies headquarters and will immediately be speculated as a landing spot for the free agent Kicker and blogger. Many XFL and Barstool fans believe the unity would be good for both content and exposure to the new league that kicks off on February 8th. To be continued…
