    XFL also gives visibility to NFL scouts. Probably why a lot of guys in this league?

    Worth pointing out that most players don't stick the whole season on an NFL practice squad. Nor are they really part of the actual team. Money is better than CFL or XFL, but I'd argue it's better to get multiple stable 6 figure seasons in Canada than getting paid for a few weeks and then getting cut as an NFL Practice guy.

    I read the title and had to see this. I see many comments mocking this. Looking at how the XFL has started and how you explained the salary breakdown it looks like a viable option for many of the players. As you followed up on a future scaling of increase in pay for those continued participation and bonuses. Sounds good because these players have options! So good, they made it accessible to the NFL right away and it will attract players with NFL aspirations. Thanks for the video bro, your video post has a good shelf life.

    McMahon will eventually allow the players to have a portion of the Jersey sales. 5 years down the road this league will be in a better spot to pay a player 150,000. Oh just in case you did not know. All and I mean all the players are covered when it comes to health insurance by the XFL dime.

    Typically when CFL players request a release from their contracts to "pursue NFL opportunities," the CFL allows them to do so. Can think of only one instance when that was untrue. It involved Chris Williams and Hamilton Tiger Cats a few seasons ago. He finally was released, went to the NFL and then returned.

    IMO, the XFL should have reduced the roster to 25. This would force players to play both offense and defense but increase salary. It would also make it a game of endurance.

    What I think will end up happening for the league is a partnership with the NFL as a developmental (but still competitive) league, sort of like the G-League is for the NBA. Another thing I think this league will do is give the NCCA a run for it's money if it lasts long enough. Players are required to wait three years after coming out of high school before entering the NFL Draft, so might as well go to the XFL and actually get paid unlike college. It'd be so interesting to see some young 5-star talent going pro straight out of high school honestly!

    Everyone should take less pay, so long as they get half decent pay, if they want this league to get up and running, when things can get more robust in business terms. If they're just looking to springboard to another league, then that's their payoff.

    I think there should be regional football supported by the NFL and college football. The college sports atmosphere sells athletes on potential and hope but the athletes leave under compensated and disappointed when they can’t make the cut. Trying to turn minor league football into a mass market product is stupid. The travel expenses alone will kill this minor league football league.

    All the best football players will choose the NFL 100% of the time. Unless you are a subpar/crappy athlete, you will not pick a league that pays 50K annually over one that dishes out millions. The XFL will not have a second season.

    I wonder how much these XFL players were getting to play football before the XFL... what's that? They were all paying to play in independent football leagues? So they were making negative money and getting hurt with no coverage before... but now they're getting paid more than the average American and getting healthcare and people are complaining? It's not enough to get to make more than the average American salary playing a game for children, everyone has to be paid millions of dollars too. No one on earth is more spoiled than the athlete.

    For NFL players this is chump change. For people outside the NFL its better than going out and working a 9 to 5. I believe if these guys play for the love of the game and a better salary than most workng guys this will indeed work . The question is this. Why would you even want an idiot agent? Negotiate your own contract fools. Stop giving part of your money away. Damn. Man up.
