  • Vince Mc Mahon speaks about the XFL in 2000. The upstart football league is set to make a comeback

Set for a 2020 reboot, the XFL has announced the first eight league-owned franchises that will open up for business when the league kicks off again in 2020.

When the reports began about a year ago that Vince McMahon was working on bringing back the XFL, the defunct league that he once called a colossal failure, I was confused.

The new version of the XFL took another step closer to its comeback almost 20 years after the first incarnation of the Vince McMahon operation lasted only a season.

"After months of research and consideration, we're thrilled to announce the cities and venues of the XFL's eight inaugural teams", Luck said in a press release. Luck said a big focus will be on a faster-moving game, with fewer breaks in play, fewer timeouts and fewer TV timeouts.

Crosby pushed his kick wide right, with the flags atop Lambeau Field blowing in toward the field at the time of the kick. The Packers converted just three of 14 third down attempts. "I'm going to do whatever they tell me to do", Kumerow said.

The league is said to have simplified rules that will make the pace quicker.

Luck stressed that the XFL will be "football reimagined" with "less stall, more ball". The XFL wants to "compliment" fall football. He also confirmed that the league will be testing for performance enhancing drugs, and is working with a world class panel of doctors and medical professionals to craft the best regulations possible. Luck also emphasized that they want to keep ticket prices low for families.

As host for the XFL press conference, NY was the first city announced. It intends to find players who are struggling to find a job in the National Football League, and from the college ranks. Murphy confirmed that a third football team will be utilizing the stadium when the XFL returns in 2020. The league will fully implement gambling in all states where it is legal. The team's name was not announced.

"The XFL is being built for fans and built to last".
