Seattle among 8 cities awarded XFL team

The XFL, a controversial professional football league that lasted for one year in 2001, announced the the league's rebirth Wednesday.

"New Jersey couldn't be happier to be one of the eight host sites for the XFL's 2020 revival season", Gov. Phil Murphy said at the news conference.

Here's where the other XFL teams will play: Dallas - Globe Life Park; Houston - TDECU Stadium; Los Angeles - StubHub Center; New York - MetLife Stadium; Seattle - CenturyLink Field; Tampa Bay - Raymond James Stadium; and Washington, D.C. - Audi Field. It opened to impressive TV ratings, but audiences quickly tuned out a league that seemed too gimmicky - TV cameras in the bathrooms, lascivious cheerleaders and jerseys that included self-chosen nicknames such as "He Hate Me". Kickoff will be on the weekend of February 8th and 9th, 2020. They also want to focus on player health and safety.

Whatever the answers to those questions might prove to be, there's a more important one for football fans on this side of the border: what does all of this mean for the Canadian Football League? Players will be tested for performance-enhancing drugs.

Luck said they want the XFL to be affordable for families and they are working on lower ticket prices. This is why the leaders of the CFL players association were, during Grey Cup week, none-too-subtly referring to the changing landscape of pro football when they were discussing upcoming negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement.

Powell's POV: A press conference was broadcast on the XFL social media pages. Teams in the new-look XFL will have 40 roster spots and will participate in a 10-week season.

The commissioner also said that he expects most of the players to come from the large pool of guys who can't stick on an National Football League roster. The league will fully implement gambling in all states where it is legal.

Luck said fans can go to XFL.com to put a deposit on season tickets. NFL may recognize the name as the home field for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it also acts as the home for the South Florida Bulls NCAA football team.
