Then after after that we're getting we're cropping out.
Was the animated topics early? So one week later, what do you think of fleets? I don't know what the **** they are.

I use them on the first day.
I'm like, this is just ****ing me off.
Every time I open the ****, I have it would crash my **** phone.
Yeah, I don't know.
I think I've looked at him twice.
The first two days I was it.
Yeah, like there was one of the guys I follow is, like, put on his twitter that you want to check out the really big fleet be that I sent out.
And it was a, uh let me see if I can just my camera here.
Okay, So that's that finger it was a joint about.
Probably is that long for De.
So I looked at it when it first came out, and I looked at that one, and I treated a lot like I do instagram stories Just because I'm not a big instagram person, I just scroll right past him and look at the post.
So except for the people's XFL, you can follow us on Instagram as well.
I didn't plug that at the beginning.
We've been slacking on that, but what's the What's the tag on that news? Samos? Uh, Twitter at the People's XFL.

So if you're if you're a night out like I am or just like some good old fashion now, Twitter rants at the People's XFL following on Twitter.
It's a couple of times I've had a couple late nights here, and I have definitely noticed it gets a little wild there after midnight.
Yeah, after after mid mid midnight, Moose comes out after mid that.
And, yeah, further record.
Don't bother checking our fleets.
There aren't gonna be any e.
Anytime anybody tweets about asleep, I make a boat joke.
I, like, replied to him and make a boat joke like, you know, Do you have the correct destroyer, the aircraft carrier ratio in your fleet? Because that's a San Diego fleet.
Yep, you know, got put out, got put out some big fleets for Fleet Week.
That's when all the boat show up.
It's a it's a navy thing.
I know I know about because I watch N c.
I s but alright, E, uh, food takes okay, E no.
You got got something to get into on Thanksgiving.
Now, the reason I brought this up because I was gonna bring this up last week and I forgot you posted that you don't like meatloaf or you legitimately referring to the food.
I know nothing about the singer.
How do you not like meatloaf? Like the food we're talking strictly the food, right? Yeah.
The food is disgusting, like all the ketchup slathered on top of it.
What? You cook that ****, put a bunch of Chiappa, have a bunch of onions and peppers and mix it into the meat before you cook it. Man, that stuff's delicious.
I can't. I don't know.
That's not That's not like, big Hand me a pizza.
Hand me a huggy cheeseburger.
I was simple, man.
All right, And that will lead us into, uh, I saw somebody had posted a $20 to draft your best Thanksgiving meal graphic deal.
You know, certain things.
They're worth five.
Whatever you I'm sure all you all have seen him.
No, we're talking about this was on Thanksgiving food and our boy moose here retweeted it and said I'm keeping my 20 and going to McDonalds or some ****.
E said I'm keeping I'm keeping my 20 getting the pizza, man.
It's so okay. I want to get into it.
Actually, first, this Raiders dude looks like a hot Cheetos for hair.
Second of all, I will take hot Cheetos over a turkey.
Turkey is always so **** dry and Thanksgiving.
Everybody is so **** stressed and moody nine times out of 10.
Like, what's the fun? Just to get moody and eat a dry turkey and some mashed potatoes? E mean, I'll give it to the stuffing as long as it's not in the birds stuffing, because that will that I don't Carrie, that'll that'll tell you any you *******.
But it was like the pan of stuffing I can eat a whole panel stuff.
They have to stop.
Other than that, it's all basic Thanksgiving.
Just a stressful holiday.
That's all it is.
Turkey is so overrated.
Unless it's deep fried, deep fried turkey, He I will mess with baked turkey.
No, I could sit in the fridge for three weeks.
I hate gravy too.
E got some interesting food takes.
I hate that I hate Christmas, but we could get into Christmas smelling about someday.
Moves like I'm gonna bring you out to Iowa and we're gonna We're gonna give you some good Iowa Thanksgiving cooking because, I mean, it can't be beat.
You get, you get, you get big old play full of gravy and turkey.
I personally don't e I.
I personally don't like mashed potatoes.
I realize that's a hot take for most people, but yeah, you get like some green bean casserole, some turkeys stuffing just dumped gravy over the whole mess and oh, man, go to town, you said.
Then you sit on the couch half asleep, watching football.
It's It's American.
It's American, man, you got E mean.
I'll watch the early I watched the Lions game because just for the fact that comes on super early the Sunday night can I'm not watching.
Could screw Steelers.
I cannot watch a Steelers game ever didn't even just to this season thing, it's It's been ever since I was, like, 10.
Huh? Well, all right.
And next we're gonna get into our next I got a couple high takes this episode the first one s so I put out a poll and my poll.
Waas does the use of profanity while expressing opinion, automatically disqualified as educated and wrong.
I did not have a ton of votes, but I did have 100% that No.
And what's upon this? We're gonna dive into college football briefly.
We aren't really gonna get into it, but I'm a big Iowa guy.
Iowa is ranked number five in the, uh, priest AP pre season has it should be.
And there was a guy that does a podcast that with the group of people I follow.
And he said Iowa is not in the top 10.
I replied, How do you not have Iowa Top 10? They're the preseason number one in the Big 10, which is the toughest conference.
I didn't really think nothing of it.
That's just how I talk.
So at somebody say I was mad, replied with the you mad Michael Jordan gift.
It was pretty awesome.
And at this point, I'm still having a good time.
I'm just like, yeah, whatever.
And it's just like Okay, quote again.
No ****. I'm mad.
I thought you worked for name a company.
No free ads? Not yet.
You could make a legit argument for Illinois being ahead of Iowa, which they aren't.
But I could listen to that argument, but to leave them out of the top 10 GFO with that bull**** and I had a guy go all high and mighty on me.
There is a difference between arguing and cursing someone out.
If you feel so strongly, I was being disrespected to go ahead and exploited within the betting market.
I will. For the record, I will.
They'll be Iowa.
That's this year.
Let me know how it works out for you, though.
Has Iowa won't finish the season in the top 10? And I replied, and I feel like my two tweets here said the exactly the same thing I said, the coal take that Iowa does not deserve a spot in the top 10 defies Allah have taken reasoning to claim that Iowa's defense is too weak to hold up when they were close to crack in the top 10 last year.
With less pieces and less experience is an argument that is fallout, which by a translation is I will belongs to in the top 10.
And if you understand that GT fo I understand that there's a little bit nuanced there.
But the guy he came back with a really positive tweet when I did one without any profanity in it.
And I just I don't like that I don't appreciate it, I think automatically disqualifying.
So I mean, it's not like I just got on there and scream **** off, you know? Yeah, it Z normal people were not in kindergarten.
Yeah, I just I treat Twitter like talking to my buddies at work.
I mean, uh, yeah, at work going.
Hey, you will you grab that ****ing ****ing do the **** is a real sentence that people will understand, Like not even getting okay.
Can you please grab that, honey dearest? Yeah.
Yeah, I talked anyway.
I talk on Twitter to in real life.
Yeah, it just it really.
I mean, I could turn on the professional talk.
I know moves can, too.
I've read his writing, and if you want me to be a professional, that's fine.
But I'm not on Twitter to be a professional writer.
I'm on Twitter to express opinions, So Hey, what's up tank, By the way, you keep that comment Second, we pay It were literally probably either next topic or the one after is your topic I was talking about earlier.
Yeah, we're definitely We gotta get Yeah, we gotta get to move here.
Holy God, my phone's blowing up.
I mean, we're getting tweet tweet a place.
Yeah, well, and I got roped in.
Somebody asked me one of the guys that unwrapped sports.
Ethan, shout out.
Ethan, he came on our Friday night bull**** session aspect.
I wanted to be in a Yeah, I want asked me if I wanted to be in a college football fantasy league.
Got seven o'clock, and I asked him a couple questions at, like, 7. 10.
I'm like, Yeah, whatever.
I'll jump in on that. He's like, Okay, we draft at 7. 30.
So I'm gonna bust stuff about that, too, because I got I got through, like, the first seven rounds, and then I just hit auto draft and bounced out to do the show.
After the first seven around, it's kind of best of the worst.
E didn't college football fantasy once, and that's kind of all the same after the big names were gone.
Yeah, well, this is college basketball, so it'd be kind of interesting.
Yeah, definitely. Like over.
It definitely excited to be a part of it.
I was just kind of like All right, well, I'm gonna drop his much as I can before I have to go to a show, like, All right, we're gonna hop up here.
We got, we got Ah, Well, we got five news topics.
Um, we will start off with the bears.
Old line needs because our boy tankers in the comments.
Okay, That's why I put out about this.
And the Bears is the bears are mess.
Their old line is a mess.
It doesn't matter who they have a quarterback right now.
I mean, that's another discussion, too, but this is an NFL.
So I wrote an article and you got a guy tank out there there.
He's been crushing it.
He's done over, performed at every level he's been at, and you can't even get a look.
I mean, I just I don't understand why the bears aren't calling him up because, e I mean, at this point in the season.
Yeah, they're five and five homers will tell you and I'm a Bears homer.
And But other Bears homers will tell you we still have a chance at the playoffs and whatnot.
I'm out there. Done.
I mean, they're done here.
They just the old line can't block the play. Calling is terrible.
And the play calling doesn't matter when you're old line camp block.
So get some guys in there.
We are partial the tank because this is a pro tank podcast.
I'm still a firm believer 10 could take be the first NFL linemen in the body.
Aaron! Donald! Oh, yeah, Dude, have you seen him? E is literally a bank.
He looked up there was a 63 10.
That's a brick wall, and he ain't fat like he's lying.
And he's built like **** e Don't even know Like a brick **** house is what he's working like.
He's built like a Greek god or something.
Hey, Felt like he ain't built like Campbell.
Uh, Okay, hold up. That wasn't for us.
I don't think What the hell? OK, where were we supposed to have eating on tonight.
I guess I didn't think we were going thio. I don't know.
Oh, we'll sort that out later.
E was not a word.
Nobody talked to you.
Okay, but yeah, so Definitely, I mean, the bears, the Jets.
There are several teams out there.
We've been doing a lot of interviews, and we're focused.
We're gonna keep our interviews focused.
Here, too, is a lot of the underrated people that aren't currently in the NFL that we think could do well or at least deserve a shot.
So we're gonna keep that going and yeah, once again, much love the tank.
Hey, thank one of them guys.
Who can I've got one more thing on.
Not even since tanks in here, just in general like tanks.
There's no reason he shouldn't It bare minimum be on a **** NFL practice squad.
A **** practice squad.
All these linemen are getting around.
Left, right, left, right. Getting injured.
They're pulling up.
Words thes Pillsbury Doughboy looking well, I've been like I don't know who he is.
With 68 on the Bears.
You might know who he is.
Number 68 on the bears the line.
But I have disowned the Bears offensive line.
Hey, he looks like he doesn't do anything.
We start to sit on his couch and he don't off.
We gotta keep going here.
We've got a whole show to get through way.
Give me Oh, man. Football.
Fan controlled football league.
What you got? Both.
The fan controlled football is in.
Interesting to say the least.
It's gonna be played on an arena League style field.
Sad thing is, I might cry myself to sleep.
There's no punters and kickers in the league, but it is ran by beast mode.
I mean, Thanksgiving turkey hander out her lunch.
Austin, eh? Color of all people, Mike Taison and they YouTube punter destroying.
So I mean, it has potential.
Seems like I already got a decent fan base or verified on Twitter, and I believe Yeah, well, and I am officially all in on the zappers.
Uh, well, a little bit of background here.
I wasn't gonna pick a team.
I was just gonna kinda and see what happened.
But the whole idea behind pan control footballs the fans get toe, make decisions as faras personnel calling plays all that stuff.
And to be a part of that community, you have to sign up for a team.
So I signed up to be a zapper and got to vote in on the logo.
I have not seen whether or not the one I picked, joined or not, but I definitely Yeah, eso I'm in on the zappers, and it'll be interesting to see what they do here.
I'm planning on staying active and voting, and it looks like they have a pretty cool set up.
There aren't really not a whole lot specific Shepherd says the more active you are on boats and input, like the more benefits you get so like, the more your intake matter, your input matters.
Oh, yeah. So yeah, definitely.
So I am all in on the zappers.
If the zappers air listening, I'm happy to be your defensive coordinator.
I don't want nothing to do with the offense.
Keeps things interesting.
I don't have a team yet.
I'm gonna I'm gonna announced my membership to a team later tonight.
All right, if and arena football ****e things, that was Spring League coming to a screeching halt was mixed opinions.
The arena football still plays, including the Missile with the Reading Raptors, which, if you follow me out, the article on on Rough Sports was, uh, 10 or white.
I'm gonna He's a quarterback for technically like monitor league team of the Reading Raptors, Berks County Raptors.
But there's a chance he could come up and play.
The Raptors have won over 50 games in a row now, and, uh, White's been there since 2017 and they have never lost a game with him on the roster.
That's just I want you a powerhouse.
Jeez, old Pete's gonna be tearing some **** up, huh? Yeah, I'm Arena Football League.
I'm hoping they don't have ticket prices or availability or anything like that.
But hopefully later this spring, we will be, well myself because me and moose are roughly 600 miles apart.
So you're welcome to come home if you want, but I'm gonna try.
I'm gonna try to get down to a Barnstormers game, which is the local arena football team.
And if we do, then I will hop on the show's Twitter and light it up for the night. So swear.
So definitely we're gonna be keeping an eye on that.
And then the last big news we have our man moves himself has gotten interaction with Marquette King and a follow, uh, the the caption on the show Notice E.
Is Marquette King a fan of mousse e mean he might be e wrote an article about him.
He said, I appreciate the love that he followed me.
Take those all about it e got, like, I don't know, Probably 40 40 45 legs on the winter.
I kind of broke the Internet there for a couple mornings again.
Definitely that That's impressive.
It's It's nice to see your work get recognized because you do a lot of really good work.
Yeah, that's the reason I I've said it once.
I'll say it again.
I That's the reason I do what I do for the underrated players.
Like you can go online and then read anything about Tom Brady.
Julie Burrows, uh, Pat Mahomes.
Matt Stafford, you know, name any NFL quarterback, but who's writing about the guys that I dio like? Just for instance, Tank Kevin Anderson, Brian Scott then them guys.
They're gonna appreciate it 10 times more than these big dogs.
And that's That's the same thing.
I'm I definitely I'm starting to get a little bit into that.
I'm no, I'm nowhere near your level or writing the articles you are.
But we got definitely looking at a lot of these underrated guys just since I started doing this show.
A lot of these guys, it's just really opened up my eyes.
There's a lot of guys out there that deserve a shot and could be helping teams out.
Oh, yeah, for sure, including a little sneak peek they got at the end of the episode might be able to help the team.
That guy seems like he's hungry and lethal from about anywhere, but we'll get we'll get into that.
Alright, so XFL into the NFL? Um, there's been a lot of movement.
I think they're down to.
We lost a couple of people this week.
Since Sunday, they signed Christian Constant to the Steelers practice squad.
Yeah, it looks like he's from my area.
Like he's probably, uh, I'll just say it to make it, either.
He's literally from my town, his his like address on Wikipedia and he went to high school. He's from my town.
Oh, you reading the comments Moose way? This'll wasn't gonna be an all tank broad broadcast, but real quick shoutout, man.
Thank you for the way.
Thanks to go tonight that I talked with tarps off.
I'm not sure where he is.
Anybody else? You got any questions? Comments about anything? Football, XFL, TSL, anything? Drop them in the comments.
I'm not gonna guarantee we'll see them in the 1st 10 seconds, but we're keeping an eye on it.
Yeah, we'll catch up.
It could be about anything held.
Ask us what kind of Chef Boyardee should eat.
Well, answer that ain't no ****.
Uh, the big story in the NFL this week, as far as the XFL goes, was P.
Walker, formerly of the Houston Roughnecks.
Has ah, professional football starter.
He started for the Panthers.
Teddy Bridgewater was down with a knee injury.
6% completion rate, 258 yards a td and two picks.
Very, very solid.
Start from P J the guy.
There's got to be teams sniffing around as to whether or not he's going to be available in the off season.
First starting role.
Yeah, that's what that's what I said immediately after the game.
That's a Yeah, one of the teams.
Actually, that would be the Bears.
I don't see full stand.
I see them letting Mitch walk, and I don't know who the third street, but I'm sure that he ain't gonna be a third guy.
Doesn't count that.
Still chase Daniel or Tyler Bray.
Tyler Brain e Don't think he's going to start.
And I mean, I could see the bears bringing them in.
I think you'd be as, ah, backup mental role if they did for next season, because I we'll have to see how the draft fix out, because I don't have any insight, sources or anything, but they gotta be looking really hard at that Williams kid, I BYU Alright.
Much as I hate BYU, I do like I've been a closet fan of him for the entire year.
Yeah, I mean, 26 touchdowns, two interceptions, 80% completion rate.
The kids a beast to think it's up to, like, 2600 yards or something dumb like that now, so But, I mean, I wouldn't rule it out because he could definitely be valuable.
I mean, I'd like to see it.
Yeah, the reason I don't like BYU is because my my boy sworn the dawn bread me the hate BYU because he's a diehard Utah Utes fan.
And they're like, they're basically, like a smaller version of the Michigan and highest date rivalry.
You got the Mormons versus not Mormons there.
I would say that it might actually almost be heated, more heated than the Ohio State Michigan.
Just because you you mix religion and anything that makes it worse.
A zafar as faras rivalries go.
I'm not knocking religion in general.
I'm just saying, as faras rivalry goes, if you have like Catholic first Protestant or Mormon verse, non Mormon or anything like that, it just makes it worse Or he did on.
And the big question they're coming off.
This is Should the Panthers stay with M v p. J.
After his showing on Sunday, I would say yes just because they're out of the playoff race.
You aren't really gonna gain anything by bringing Bridgewater back in unless Bridgewater is playing for his job, which I don't think he is.
He's had a pretty solid year other than injury, so I just I don't really see any reason to rush Russ, Teddy, Bridgewater back in.
Just let you walk the walk, get some snaps, get him some game experience games on game film.
Let's let's see what he can dio for.
May I'm all for P J starting, but just to keep it interesting, I'm gonna take the opposite side.
Say, if the Rams do wanna keep PJ, I think they should let Teddy be in there, get him some more film and show he he's all right with the injury for trade bait.
You know what I mean? That that's a valid approach that I did not think about the trade bait side of it, but because they could keep TJ hit and get Teddy beasts a couple of good games and somebody might bite.
I mean, because they've only they have only one, what, two or three? Either two or three? I can't remember for sure, but they're They're completely out of the playoff picture.
They could be going going for a partial rebuild their and then, Yeah, that would definitely be the movement they're looking at rebuilding with P.
Get get Bridgewater back in there.
So that is good for them on the trade block.
Yeah, I was my thought.
All right? Yeah, I could see that happening.
But if they If they're probably to stick with Teddy, then definitely get PJ the game film for the same reason.
Because it won't do it.
Won't do anything but help.
His is trade value.
Yeah, that was my approach.
However, you want to trade that, they're probably getting snips.
Got you? Yeah, that makes sense.
They are all thinking me again. Moose.

I think that Pasar deuce.
Okay, now we're gonna go into TSL.
Do we want to start with the positive and go MVPs first? Ah, yeah, Let's start positive because there's a lot of good There's a lot of good things with the spring leg, So Oh, I'll go first.
Okay, First off for the quarterback, it was a toss up between two of them, but both really, both of the guys they bought out.
Regardless, somebody's gonna have one.
Somebody have the other one.
So that's a Brian Scott dude.
Due to the monster, he he literally looked like there's no way this dude shouldn't be on an NFL team.
Eight touchdowns, I believe.
The one interception.
I lost stats, but I believe over 500 over 500 yards in the first three games.
That sounds right off the top of my head because I e, I believe like 3. 25.
And you have 33 16, I believe.
Yeah, yeah, No, he came.
He came out and unloaded a cannon and looked great doing it.
He just built like a good Q B.
He's looks like he should be in the NFL.
I mean, he was with the chief for a little bit.
Yeah, and I took Kevin Anderson the other Q b that bald out.
Hey, didn't have a game under 200 his last game.
I don't TSL start.
Yeah, last game was 3 25 but as far as season totals, he had to be pushing.
He had to be somewhere between 600,000 yards for three games.
Just very solid performance.
Bunch of touchdowns was throwing dimes all over the place.
He did have a couple interceptions, but yeah, you know, you're coming in and playing three games.
You're gonna have some receiver miscommunications.
And I'm not putting that on the receivers necessarily.
But I'm just saying you get a full NFL off season to work with your guys that will clean up a lot of those interceptions.
Yeah, essentially, think of spring league like an NFL preseason.
They're still getting to know each other and all.
So, yeah, you could have easily clean up those interceptions that he had a regular spot and was working with the regular group of guys and just all out bald.
And I'm blanking on the name because I forgot to put it in note.
Yeah, yeah, it's the kick returner.
Okay, we're thinking different guys.
Then I'll take my guy after yours. He's Matt ***ton.
Yes, Matt ***ton and just the guy looked dangerous on returns all year.
He ended Week two with a walk off punt return for a touchdown and then opened up first play a week three with a kickoff return for a touchdown and just has a really great attitude.
Came out in postgame interviews and I said, I got to give credit to all my blockers.
They opened up lanes for me, Just the attitude.
You want to see a guy tohave not m V p level, but definitely deserved honorable mentions.
Then on the for my honorable mention another specialist, the kicker Matt mingle.
He got He got a bunch of bad bunch for no reason.
I was the league and the I don't know why he had to.
He was the only kicker toe have over to field to field goals of over 50 yards.
And both of them were.
I believe one was 50. The other was 53.
It's like it could have been good from 60.
That was a moon shot of a ball.
Hey, could punt to and I don't know the status.
Also told my eggs in the spring Lee sat suck.
Define especially for Specialist.
Yeah, he has a good punch to He was just training with Nick Novak the other day.
The old Panthers kicker using their league for like 16 years.
He definitely deserves that.
He was part of the way the best field goal kicker in the spring league, and this is gonna kind of merge into our next topic with the backlash and the good and bad from the TSL.
Do this to you, Moose.
I know I'm kind of ad libbing this together as we dio, but like I said, your boys on one.
Uh, but yeah, mangle.
Um, he took advantage of every opportunity to TSL gave him.
He got in there and he got his reps.
He got on the field and he showed what he could Dio He took advantage of all the good that the spring leg had to offer.
He's got a bunch of actual game filled the show now.
I mean, that's the reason that the spring leg is there.
I mean, we love the competition.
We love cheering for guys, but at the end of the day, they're out there to get film, and they're not out there to ****.
You get that? You did that.
So just and that there's a lot of good and bad beginning at last week's show was shortly after the **** main talking ****.
That video has sent as such, that has since been set to private.
So you can't share it.
You can't watch it.
You can get it if somebody wait.
If it's private, you can't.
Before it was by Lincoln only.
So it was out there and he made it.
So it's not out there so more, Which kind of causes me to question a little bit of the validity of it.
Mhm. You just you wonder.
Why? You know why? Take it down if it's all right that z from my end.
I've never heard anything, You know? Besides what Kelby Kelby get Kelby.
Shelby said that was just like stuff you'd comics not really expect, but like little stuff that adds up.
Aside from that, it didn't seem like it was What? Whatever the hell name is **** man said Hoop Main like a lion's mane.
You gotta get em a any.
So yeah, no free ads.
But his show is talking **** if you wanna have a life.
But, uh, yeah, and just There was a lot of backlash on the video before it got taken down.
Matt Mangle himself was he's the one that got went on the big rant, correct? Yeah, Yeah, He went off on the whole thing.
The CEO Brian Woods gave an interview I did not watch the interview for reasons we will not.
Yeah, but he did do an interview in one of the quotes that came out of the interview is was that he I I didn't see the exact quote because it was just ah, paraphrase of the message.
But basically, his point was, is, we're a small league running on a small budget and we were doing the best we can.
And I can feel that, you know, that that's a That's a very believable thing.
Um, kind of Yeah, we're, uh did stuff is so intertwined.
I mean, there was, ah, hot take rolling around the Internet that the TSL implosion at the end of the year was another black eye for all spring football leagues.
And another reason that the X f l is going to fail.
And yes, I don't like that.
I I just The TSL is not.
The Spring league was not the XFL.
It was never meant to be the x f l.
It was a completely different league, a completely different idea.
The whole idea behind the spring league is players play, they come in, they get game film and they get exposure, and they get the opportunity to be seen by scouts so somebody will pay them to play football.
The idea behind the X f l is that they go out and they find people that are good at football.
I eat like guys that were in the spring leg and got game film and then signed them.
And they get paid to be professional football players thes air.
Two completely different business models that have almost nothing to do with each other.
And the other hot take going around is the fact that the coaches weren't getting paid, which is, uh, cold take from like Week two.
That was sense resolved that it wasn't that there wasn't any money.
There wasn't a problem in the coach's money.
There was a paper work problem with the direct deposit system, which happens.
I mean, yeah, it's kind of a bad look, but they found out about it and they fixed it.
Everybody got paid.
There was not a financial crisis, or lack of money has is being implied by certain people that choose to be negative about the spring leg experience.
The third take is coronavirus, and really they gave jumped all over for their testing protocols.
I don't know what they were, um, last week, I think we might have been a little hard on them, but we were working with the information we had at the time, and at that time we only had one side of the story hearing on both sides.
I think that there was probably some stuff that slipped through the cracks and probably stuff that they could have done better.
But nobody's handled this thing perfectly yet.
I mean, the NFL canceled games.
The MLB canceled games.
The N B A canceled games.
Everybody had people out.
Everybody had problems.
E don't know why you're expecting the spring league to be perfect.
And I don't know.
I looked this up just for kicks and giggles.
I tried to see what Brian Woods net worth. Waas.
He does not have enough net worth for that data to be listed on Google.
I couldn't find it on the Internet.
The rock is worth approximately 350 million ****ing dollars.
You know, all respect to Brian Woods.
I think he overall did a good job.
But you ain't the rock, bro.
You know you cannot expect Brian Woods to be performing at the rocks level and the idea that there's people out there with the take that the fact that the spring league got canceled because of the coronavirus outbreak means the X f l won't work because football business insider's whoever the **** that is, I think that they'll be sour on the league and they won't want to invest their money.
Let me tell you something, boys.
The rock don't give a **** if you want to invest your money, the rock got bank boys and we're gonna have ourselves an XFL season.
And it is gonna They're gonna tear some **** up the x f l the rock.
He don't care about your football business insiders that rock cares about putting fans in the stands and people in front of the TV and putting a product on the field.
And that is what's gonna ****ing happen.
Let's ****ing go.
Did you smell what the rock is cooking? E I certainly can.
Alright, I'm done.
Well, I'm thinking about the spring league.
All I'm gonna say is it wasn't a professional league beside the coaches getting paid it za showcase league.
To me, a showcase league and a professional league can be compared.
But that's all I'm gonna say.
It's two different things.
Yeah, And that that that was the basic fact.
That really just set me off and you just pile on that they're not comparable.
Yeah, the spring league.
I mean, even if the Spring League for and this is this didn't happen, this is completely hypothetical.
But even if Brian Woods set this up, got a week and a half in and ran out of money and set everyone home, it still doesn't matter.
Because the XFL, especially under the new ownership, is a completely different animal on a completely different model.
And you cannot use success of the spring league to gauge whether or not the XFL is going toe work.
And also coming off of that the Spring league is in.
They are finalizing a deal to partner with Fox and FS one going forward.
So obviously they did something right and that if there is somebody out there willing to go in a partnership with a league whose sole purpose is getting players game film like not even to be a real league you know they aren't competing for a championship.
They don't have contracts, They don't have bonuses.
They're gonna put them on TV.
They're signing a contract with them to carry them on TV.
If somebody if somebody is willing to go into contract to put those guys on TV, what's the line like to get the XFL on? Yeah, I mean, yeah, it was It was a terrible take.
It was based in Follow the whole premise just and I saw it from more than one spot.
This is not aimed at any one person or anyone organization.
It's just stuff that's been floating around.
And it varied from people just completely ignoring what they didn't want to hear or what they didn't want to consider all the way to people that just didn't know.
And we're spouting off.
And, yeah, I've seen at least four or five different articles.
Yeah, it's just it's a bad take.
The X f l will be fine with or without the TSL.
And I think the TSL is going to be fine as well.
I think they did it.
It wasn't perfect.
We've given them some grief on this show and I'm not backing off all everything I ever said that about them and acting like it's the next coming of Vince McMahon here to save the world.
But they got enough right that Fox is getting in with them.
They will put some more money in the system, allow them to improve what they need to improve to be around for a while.
Yeah, actually, I think we've even all the players, but ah, couple we're probably gonna say, Yeah, the league got me film.
The league help was this That the spring league? It's gonna stay.
I mean, other than the **** main video I didn't talk to because I talked to a few people about it off record people that played in the league.
Now I know you did too, And yeah, nobody other than mangle on Twitter.
Who? I did not talk Thio outside of what he put on Twitter.
Nobody was really, like, all in on.
It was the greatest experience of their lives there.
Like it was just it was what it waas.
Yeah, it was what it waas.
It was pretty much what we expected going in.
It's not the NFL and we knew that and it would have been nicer if some of this stuff was closer to NFL standards.
But we understand why it wasn't even if it irritates us a little bit.
I mean, that was even Shelby with this food take.
He was definitely irritated about the food.
They said before and after he explained why he was irritated about the food.
He stressed that he was really thankful for the Spring League and the opportunity it gave him, and that seems to be the overwhelming sentiment of everybody there.
There wasn't there may have been stuff they didn't like, but overall, they were really happy to get the opportunity and really happy.
Oh, that it's a thing.
End of the day and spring.
Lee is gonna stay around.
Alright, What's next brings us to the game of the week, I believe Game of the week.
I was kind of lucky.
I was scrambling a little bit this week with the holidays and everything, my schedule has been a little more folding normal.
I'm trying to get done and basically 2.
5 days I usually doing five as faras yeah, stuff for the show and unwrapped sports and also shout out to the guys doing the NFL show over there just real quick.
They dio recaps on Sunday night after the Sunday Night Football game in the Monday Night Football game.
If you're in NFL fan, catch those I was lucky enough to.
Yeah, I don't know what happened to Gary, you know, basically on rap sports, they're going to show you some quality football content after Sunday night game there, on there after the Monday night.
