    XFL To Return in 2020

    It appears Vince McMahon is ready to get back in to football, as ESPN's Darren Rovell is reporting the WWE CEO will announce Thursday afternoon that he's starting a new professional league.

    McMahon previously launched his own professional football league, the XFL, in 2001 but the organization folded after just one season.

    McMahon registered a number of trademarks in December that suggested a potential foray into professional football, and sold $100 million of his WWE stock to fund a new venture.

    The XFL lost $70 million in its one season of operation, according to Alfred Konuwa of Forbes.com, so it's doubtful that McMahon would simply reboot the defunct league with no changes.

    Well, they are preparing with a full year. The AAF tried to start in less than six months, which was crazy.
    The NFL's failed pathetic attempt to undercut them has backfired.

    Go, Vince, Go!

    10 plays minimum...then add more with challenge flags, instant replay and re-plays from penalties. Sounds like a rip-roaring adventure.

    Agreed. Especially having both teams offense and defense on the field at the same time.

    Just go to the college overtime rules and be done with it.
