Soggi Boi Presents: The XFL Diaries

Image result for xfl
Here. We. Go. This Saturday, 2 pm. Be there or be square boiiiiiis.

Hey y’all. Sogger here. Just coming at you with a new segment of writing I wanted to start with the inaugural season of the XFL about to kick off. We are about to witness HISTORY as Vince McMahon and the geniuses behind the WWE decided that they felt left out of the professional sports world, and wanted to start their own little football league. How adorable! This will be one of the best things to come from a McMahon since Jimbo’s (no relation) ’85 season with Da Bears. I know every NFL fan, myself included, is foaming at the mouth for more high quality, NFL level football. I mean, how could you pass us what is going to be such a refined product?

For those of you that have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, let me break it down for you. The XFL is an off brand reboot of the AAF, which was another professional league that started back in February of 2019. It lasted a grand total of 50 days. 50 DAYS. That doesn’t bode well for the newly formed XFL. Like the AAF, the XFL will include players that were not able to stick around in the NFL or CFB (Canadian Football League). I hope you guys are ready for these rosters, because boy, do they have some STAR POWER! Pay extra attention to the names that are bold!

With names like Cardale Jones, Tyree Jackson, Cameron Artis-Payne, Kenneth Farrow, Marquette King, and Kony Ealy, eager fans should be excited. Big time names produce big time results. How could this league ever fail with star power like that? My way too early prediction for this wonderful new league is that it will fall flat on it’s face. How can anyone actually think that this is going to take off? If you are Vince McMahon, which players would you even be able to market as “star players”. Easy answer: NONE OF THEM! I don’t see this lasting over a season. I do think they make it a full season, unlike their lowly predecessor whom only last the aforementioned 50 days. This could have devastating financial effects on the WWE as McMahon is slated to lose about 8 billion dollars on this endeavor.

Folks, don’t expect too much from the XFL. It’s only going to let you down as another poor replacement for the NFL. Yes, the NFL has its problems, but it will be chump change compared to the issues that will befall the XFL. Don’t get your hopes up ladies and gentlefish. The XFL is only going to break your beautiful hearts.
