Local players at the Press Conference including former St Louis Rams Will Witherspoon, Tommy Polly, and Grant Williams among others.

Jonathan Hayes Notes

  • Tickets will be cheaper than the NFL
  • XFL pace of play will be fast
  • St Louis is a great sports town and he is excited
  • His staff will not necessarily be from St. Louis Rams but have been with NFL teams, he gave no names, can’t say yet
  • Excited about the new rules being talked about
  • Workman’s comp and support staff in the wrong places hurt the AAF
  • Seeing what went wrong with the AAF helps the XFL

Oliver Luck Notes

  • All 43 games will be broadcast across fully distributed cable or over the air free television
  • Over the air, free TV will be one of the alphabet networks, ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox. We at XFL News Hub have been speculating it will be Fox.
  • XFL TV deal will be long term deal, not a one year deal
  • Signing players will take place during the summer but ramp up after NFL Cut Down day in September
  • XFL Draft will take place in October
  • Team 9 – Based in Dallas, practice at the same facility as Bob Stoops XFL Dallas team, consist of 40 players, their own set of coaches, like minor league system for the XFL to grab players. A G-league team like they had in NFL Europe
  • Team names and logo announcement a month to six weeks away, due to trademarks and legal process
