Hear Me Out: XFL Should Start A Franchise In Austin2 min read

The following two tabs change content below.


Interesting news came out during a slow sports news week…..XFL is back! Regarded as a ridiculous league, XFL was known for some of the wrestling like antics that took place on the football field. You had the nicknames on the back of the jerseys, the no “halo rule” on punts (resulting in devastating hits), instead of a coin flip before the game, the ref would toss a football and two players would fight for the ball. I won’t lie, when the league was around I watched it, it was intriguing. I was disappointed when the league folded in its first year. Owner Vince McMahon has decided he wanted to try it over again This time removing the gimmicks, making the game faster, and concentrating on just football.

McMahon has stated,

“that every team is on the radar”

Eight teams are expected to fill the league this year. It is unknown what cities will host the teams. A city that makes too much sense is nestled in the heart of Texas, the sprawling city of Austin. The capital city is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, it is one of the largest city without a pro-sports team, and the city can handle large events because of the ongoing festivals including South By Southwest. The city is no stranger to an influx of people.
