First of many Hopefully depending on how good or bad this goes tonight But hopefully for the best but that we’re moving down right below me here first appearance on this channel You might remember I’m delivering picks for the AAF. You might delicious remember? I’m delivering picks for arena football, but now he’s figured it out He’s here with the big boys the XFL delivery guy. How you doing tonight? My man? I’m doing pretty good It’s been pretty crazy over the delivery guy house a little sad Cowboys are not going to playoffs But we’re gonna forget all that and focus on the XFL and I’m pretty excited about to kick-off coming up dude. I’m excited I wish you didn’t remind me about the Cowboys. I was watching. I was just watching come on Eagles lose to the Giants Let’s make this happen. Oh, yeah, no bueno Alright, but last but not least the man Tron Hawkins, sorry, I stuttered on your name. They’re from this edge FL podcast. How you doing tonight, man? Well least I had something cheerful for the Cowboys. I’m a Falcons fan So I’m gonna wait for xfo for about three months in the huh yeah, but it’s only good if y’all waiting for my cam to come back y’all gonna be very Sabbath and lips o toes I’ll probably Won’t get it back, but it’s good to be here to everybody for the first time. Oh, yeah you like I said, I Anticipated we’d have some technical hiccups. But so far, you know, it’s not that bad, you know Hey, we’re only a couple minutes and so we will see so Favorite moments of the year. I think we’ve all been fans since the XFL has been announced so Delivery guy, like I said, since you’re the first this is your first appearance on the channel. Let me kick it off with you What was your favorite moment? Throughout the year with the XFL My favorite moment would have to be when they announced all the head coaches when I got to see who was taken over the teams as head coach and general manager and the Reid I gave me an idea of How these teams are gonna start getting their identities on who’s gonna take over to take the reins And so I was that was my favorite moment by far Awesome, man. Yeah, the head coaches was great. It was really our first look into What the league was going to look like, you know? Especially with Bob Stoops being named number one right off the bat. You kind of got that feeling Okay, this leagues doing some things different and it built up that anticipation even though we found a lot of those guys maybe a couple days if not weeks before Sorry for spoiling the surprise for some of you folks. But oh no, I think yeah, I Think that was a big moment here. So let’s move on here Trond Hawkins XFL podcast biggest moment of the year. What do you think? To me it was the morning of the draft when we found out who the quarterbacks were. No, we already need Landry Jones well I don’t think we kind of to Cepeda how good the quality of the quarterbacks was gonna be because I know I was kind of Surprised to see Matt McGloin erinmarie, which I’m a Georgia fan So I knew who he was because he was even talked about a week leading up to it Phillip Walker, PJ walk is used on Brandon Silver’s or I think it’s got a chance to at least be the second best quarterback in the league You mean obviously don’t go in the Death Valley against LSU and beat them unless you got balls of steel So I think the I think the quarterbacks that morning we find out who they were We kind of got to kind of hint. All right Okay, they’ve been talking about the quarterbacks all this time but now we know there was legit when they talked about the quality of the quarterbacks ladies gonna get Yeah, absolutely. I think you’re right – there’s there’s so many great moments here throughout the year But yeah, there was some surprises in there I think a lot of people You know looking at we’ll get to this later in some of the snubs and those folks But I think a lot of people expected Manziel wasn’t in the list But I think ultimately and I hope he’s not listening. I doubt he’s listening, but I think we did get higher quality quarterbacks than Manziel but I’m gonna throw it over to you Jay – a man that doesn’t hold back on his opinions What was your favorite moment of the year? My favorite moment here is going to be simple the eight Franchises that we have been given especially for the city most importantly for the city st. Louis for what they’ve been through They finally get a team and the supports been it crazy for that fan base as well. So You got New York tradition the LA tradition from the old xfo and you got new teams, you know Seattle known as the the wild crazy fan support of the 12th, man. Now you got one snapper But yeah, of course Dallas and Houston you get football, Texas. I’m just excited about the eight teams We get and the XFL including the city of st. Louis. They finally got a team back Yeah, then that that is yeah st. Louis. It’s gonna be rockin in the dome I think there’s gonna be a lot of surprises in attendance. I don’t know the one I’m worried about I think a lot of people agree. It’s probably LA but the stadium isn’t too large so I think they’re gonna be able to make do they’re You know thinking about the year, there’s there’s so many things that have happened So, you know, I’m gonna take a little bit of a different approach just because I’ve been lucky enough to attend various different events but to me At least my favorite moment is going back to March with the spring league and having an opportunity to go see them Actually test out those rules like we still don’t even have the rulebook We have a good idea what the rules are going look like but going back and actually seeing them Tut Test out those overtime rules or the kickoffs Doing different tests on the play clock, you know, and again when you look at this time around with the XFL There’s one thing that they have that the originally didn’t for the most part is social media and they’re embracing it They’re embracing. Even the little guys like us right where they’re giving. I’ve been I’ve had the opportunity to cover events I know some other folks we’ve had different writers and stuff Throughout the country cover events for us as well And even some of those smaller blogs similar to us or even different podcasts. That’s awesome It’s exactly what the league needs to be doing Because the more people are talking about you you you really want it to be in a positive fashion But you know the more people talking about you. It’s always a good thing So, you know looking at you know Kind of what I just said on the XFL is a little bit different this time around I want to talk about what our what our Expectations are for the league and I’ll leave it up to you to interpret that however you want But again, because you are a man of opinion Jay – yeah, I got to hear what you got to say What’s my expectations of this season for a great product out on the field that the fans will appreciate We’re in week 4 week five week six of the season We’re not having attendances like we’ve seen in Memphis or Salt Lake City in the AAF you want to see a TV network that’s you know pumping promotion after promotion Because they have a great product on the field And also I want to see you know Just good football And I do believe that the XFL has better players in the AEF – a couple of you know, standalone player missed out I just want to see how this league starts off for people who want to have a year – or you’re three or four you have to get through year one and that starts off with the brand of football of The XFL and how Excel presents it to the people to the masses and that’s where it begins and it begins in a few weeks and I It’s cotton, but that’s how I feel. Hey, no, I like it. I like it. This is good Let’s move on delivery guy. What do you think? What are your expectations? well, since I was a big fan of the AEF my expectation is can we just finish first season and get to a Champions no, um I actually agree with everything Jay – just said I’m expecting it to be everything that the AEF Wasn’t what it was supposed to be, you know, it’s got better media outlets it’s got Better quality players, I think The coaching staff is top-notch so I think we’re gonna see he said it right we’re gonna we’re not gonna see stadiums like in Memphis and Salt Lake and Atlanta we’re gonna see fuller stadiums. We’re just gonna see a better product and It’s just gonna be everything that they F couldn’t do and it’s going to be Opportunities for these players to either get to the next level or just keep playing the game that they love Yeah, I completely agree. So let’s move on Oh actually it’s my turn here I don’t even know how to read my own notes sheet here You know my expectations really I don’t want to say everything that you guys just said, but I I agree 100% with that as far as Longevity, I think you know that second year is gonna be a make-or-break. I think really at this point It’s hard to say that the XFL is not going to make it at least two seasons right there Are TV deals are for two seasons I don’t know if all their coaching deals, but I’ve heard some of their coaching deals or for two seasons They’re really setting themselves up for that second season, but depending on you know one Looking at the AAF, right? Looking at the numbers that they got at least when they were on CBS that first game they drew over two million people And then even looking at when they were on bleacher report They were pulling in half a million people which I think is pretty damn commendable on something So obscure a niche a lot of people don’t know what bleacher report is let alone how to use it and whatnot With with the XFL you’re not gonna have that problem. You’re gonna get just people flipping through the channels I think it’s gonna be easy on your worst game even later in the season to hit two million people But I think they’re gonna exceed that now looking into that second season It’s it’s really about a couple things I think is maintaining as many of the players that you can the top tier players coaches It’ll keep the momentum on TV build your crowds in those stadiums so you can go into negotiations For year three with these TV deals and say hey look we aren’t really getting money You’re paying the broadcast deals now, but I think we’ve built up something to where Maybe we deserve something and then then it’s you you you Anything can happen right they could last as long or as little as they want from there It’s unfortunate looking at what happened? I am sorry for the rant here guys, but it’s unfortunate. Look at what happened with arena football but ultimately, I think that that’s going to be good for The XFL too I think there’s gonna be a lot of arena fans looking for something else and they’re gonna find that in the XFL But I got sorry folks for the the long rant there. I’m gonna move on to trine Hawk and sorry to keep you waiting there Take a breath, okay To me the I don’t think people think about this or I think the broadcasting like how they’re gonna broadcast the games is gonna be the best part of the whole league because you got people that Actually want to broadcast the games like if ESPN just wanted to be kind of 1980 I guess I can’t want to be dicks about it They could’ve put us on a you know, ESPN Plus make people play $6.99 a month for it or whatever but they actually put us on really SPN the putting us on ABC who hadn’t had pro football there since Monday Night Football left like 2005 You got Fox and Fox Sports 1 and I think more people actually watched Fox Sports 1 now than in ESPN So I think the weather broadcasts know that if you look at social media the announcers and everything or promoting the crap out of it It’s cuz they actually want to be a part of it. I’m sure they went. Oh, they go out Who which one y’all want to do this and people raise their hands like I’ll do it cuz not cuz they just do mean obviously They want the money. I mean joke lat is a legit broadcaster Steve Levy is probably one of the best announcers has ever been on the ESPN He Jiang really had a shot do anything big he probably should be doing money not football right now if we’re looking at the money Not football team should be an obvious to me bigger pic farlan for crossly. Usually we got him on there And then you got Pat McAfee who’s probably the biggest Personality right now in sports. I mean if we’re being honest like personality-wise, he’s gonna be a big deal probably in five years He probably have his own show somewhere there legit everybody’s legit the channels legit and That’s gonna make it fun because they actually want to be there the channels want the head techs to fail That’s why they’re picking up the production cost on it. They’re not doing that for no reason They’re doing it. So it’d be done good doing right and done the way it should be No, yeah, I completely agree. Yeah in looking at just the way that the NFL or NFL on Fox at least is handling the WWE coming to Fox they are pushing it non-stop and I think that we’re going to see a lot of that for the XFL the fact that the Super Bowls on Fox that’s Huge for the XFL because there’s that bare minimum going to be a mention I don’t know if we’re gonna simple blown ad but even the AAF, I know there’s gonna be a commercial Yeah, there’s gonna be a commercial. Yeah, I’ve heard that there actually would be Little bit five-second Clips during the playoffs on Fox. Yeah, and that promoting date by promoting XFL Next week and probably almost like a promote it during the wild-card game. Yeah. Yeah. That’s a good point actually Oh, I’m excited for playoff football And then you know, it’s great. This is the one time it finally leads in to more football Well, I guess not the one it’s happened a few times since your past but I don’t know since the USFL I think this seems like the most strong argument for a spring football league I did feel the same for the AF for a week or two It’s just unfortunate what happened with the they don’t have the money You’re not gonna have the product in really kind of hoarse off them Well, yeah, I know there’s I still appeal a couple people that don’t like me for that But yeah, I feel it real quick since we’re just kind of joking around I have feel responsible for putting them out of business because April Fool’s Day I had the joke that we changed from XFL to K. We were XFL to K at the time to AAF to K and Then the next day they announced they were going out of business. I feel I feel a little bit responsible for that It was your fault. You jinxed him. I know I know Man, so I’m gonna be very careful with my April Fool’s loop this year, you know It could’ve been it could have been to cage. There’s so much money. They had left. Yeah Or AAF men but okay, let’s move on to some championship predictions. So I’m gonna start off those things Yeah Oh, oh my Thanks for keeping me honest guys. I’m not very good at this game Hey first I must first Be awesome this season so at least so I have season tickets for the Roughnecks. I have tickets for the Dallas game or the Roughnecks game up in Dallas, which if you guys didn’t know or anybody listening if you’re a Roughnecks or a Dallas fan season ticket holder you get a six ticket in your package for each other’s game When they go I heard a rumor that they are rivals with each other. I’m gonna feel hurt that annoying Oh, it’s gonna be going east. Yeah. Yeah, so I don’t know which Dallas Houston game I’m more excited for but I’m gonna pick probably the Thursday night game for a couple reasons is one I don’t have to drive this far – it’s one of the only – Thursday night games You hope it’s a playoff game. I hope yeah, well exactly I hope man if anything, we hopefully gotta beat Dallas. There’s nothing worse than And again, sorry for everybody listening That’s a Renegades fan. But I live I live in Houston and there’s nothing worse than a Dallas fan. I’m sorry It had to be said I’m sorry Except for I was rootin for the Cowboys today – I’m a weird sports fan. I’m from Detroit. I’m a Lions fan What does that tell you don’t feel bad about any of my insults? But yeah, I would say Dallas used in either one, but I’m gonna go for the Thursday night game end of the season playoff Possibilities may be on the line there, but delivery guy. What’s your pick? see, I’m going with the opposite my Pick for the most anticipated game will be Houston ad Dallas. Okay. The reason being is because I live closer to Dallas, but I’m a Roughnecks fan and So I actually plan on going to bad game as a visitor like or rooting for the away team. I’ve never done that before Yeah, usually when I go to games I’m going to Cowboys games as you know fan of the home team So I plan on being a fan of the away team and just being annoying and if not, just while I’m there Yeah, this is I’m really good for to go into that, dude I’ll tell you this because again, I’m a Detroit fan who hasn’t lived in Detroit for about 15 years There’s nothing more fun than being a fan of the away team There some times that you get around a group of fans that love that team But it’s really more fun when everyone around you is just like ah Great. They scored now. We have to listen to this guy again, you know, oh Man so, uh, Jay – most anticipated game. What do you got? Are you sure? Oh, is it me or is this supposed to go to trial on Hawkins? What do you got? The right answer is Elliott st. Louis ain’t it? I mean that angry driving Yeah wizard malls and haze don’t like each other. He got La going to st Louis in the dome and we all know about that even though even st Louis posted the circled on the calendar saying you know why I mean they’re getting into the NFL side of it That’s the most anticipated game. Now if I’m gonna do a little bonus one, I think the best game of week Owens actively st Louis going to Dallas because you got Dallas’s offense against st Louis’s defense cuz that’s I think it was kind of bit of a better defense and they have offense in this league You’re not gonna stop anybody. You’re just gonna slow him down. If some I can figure out how to slow down Dallas as offense They can be beat Yeah. Yeah, I think I think you’re right on both those picks. So sorry about that. Let’s move on to Jay – now Okay, seeing that Tron stole my thunder. Are you wishing anything did you? yeah, my anticipated game Has to be week one in Washington CL dragons and the Washington defenders why it’s the first XFL game Why I will be there live with my co-host Carlos for the XFL hench podcast the most anticipated game It’s been two years Waiting and it’s finally here February 8 at 11:00 a.m. Nope, not 11 a.m. But what is it 4 o’clock game? Please it to you It’s 3 o’clock game. We pull out my snow. That’s not the full schedule. I don’t have it in front of me But yeah, it’s the early game. It’s the first game. Yeah, and The anticipation it’s going to be cold. Well, if you some people I believe in whether it might not be cold Maybe a little warmer than usual but you’d finally get to see Cardale Jones a big big big time signing for the XFL from how I said no one expected, basically and Brandon Silver’s no one thought he was going to be in the XFL get to marquee quarterbacks and to offenses I think they’re gonna be some of the most exciting and my honest opinion I think Did DC might have the best defense in the league based on roster, but that’s my opinion I’m not a fan of DC. Just saying I’m just more looking forward to that game because it kicks it all off I was actually waiting for that answer from someone. I was worried we wouldn’t get to it but good good I’m glad we made the rounds on that one. So now we are at the championship predictions Tron Hawkins you’re going first I know how to read an order this time. What do you got for the championship predictions? I got in the champion game. I got the DC defenders beating the Dallas renegades beating the Yes, I think DC not only do they have the good defense They got Cardale Jones Which some may say we’re probably the second or third best quarterback in the league knowing that their running backs are legit And here’s the thing about running the ball if Dallas don’t have the ball. They can’t score so I see Dallas just running armed and running on them and winning the game was I think Dallas in the Betting odds being like in our DC in the bet now. I’ve been like in the second half of the league I don’t see how you can look at that roster and even think that so I got DC beating st Louis in the East Dallas beaten. I’m sorry. It’ll lay in the West and then DC being Dallas and chips again The number one overall seed See, it’s gonna be Dallas. Okay, okay. Okay, I like that Side, but go on but the chips are game the chance of game is gonna be in Houston I bet I hope I hope so it it doesn’t belong anywhere else I’m sorry for everyone else listening, but they haven’t been all busy. They haven’t they haven’t done office in Houston for no reason Yeah, there’s a reason why they’re doing training camp and stuff in Houston I got a little bit money but isn’t only in one night city’s hanging me in Las Vegas or anything like that I’m just gonna cut out there. Yeah. Yeah, I Honestly, I’m gonna try to travel wherever it is But yes, I would be very happy if it’s in Houston, I’d be perfectly fine with Dallas New York if I have to I’ll try You know, we’ll get there. So J – championship predictions Well, if championship predictions, what do what Ron does and you know give you my little playoff little scenario The best record in the XFL will come from an Eastern Conference team in my opinion This isn’t blond people and I go like it. I think it’s gonna be st. Louis I think they’ll have the best record in the XFL but they’re not going to be the best team the best team will be out in the West and that is Drumroll, please brain and Silver’s and the Seattle dragons. They will win the West but they’ll be no, of course nothing – wrong number one seed and I Got st. Louis versus Seattle XFL chip chip game with Seattle win at all Wolfman up in here Yep, you know they I’ll tell you this. They have a fandom like no other those dragons fans They you know it they’re there to be rivaled with those st. Louis fans So I think that would be that would be a great matchup just for the fans of Malone, right? Seattle’s running back to legit – if you’ve been watching this social media, they’re gonna be hard to deal with yeah So let’s move on here to the delivery guy championship predictions Okay, so I’m gonna follow suit and give you my predictions for the East and the West so I think in the West the Western Finals is going to be the Dallas renegades vs. The LA Wildcats and I think that way Wildcats are going to take that and then I Think the is going to be between the defenders and the battle Hawks and I think the battle Hawks are going to take it So we’re gonna see a matchup between the coaches between LA and st. Louis again. I Like LA. I think they have a great offense put together with a very defensive minded coach So I think they’re gonna have a very well-rounded team and I think with st. Louis they have a crazy good receiver core The guys they picked were just really really good. I liked who they got and They have a good defense. So I think they’re gonna be a well-rounded team Who’s gonna win it? My gut says LA it’s gonna win it all and that’s a bold prediction I think there’s a lot of people that I think I think la is the underdog but I agree with you I don’t think they should be I think the a and another tricky one and I’m not gonna go into my prediction yet But another tricky one, I think it’s gonna be the Vipers. I think they could be a sneaky team I a lot Oh I know I see the head shaken, but you guys know you guys watch now I’ve heard that they poop standing up I’ve seen that online all the time I don’t know where that those are two games, but I don’t know Trestman might have something sneaky up his sleeve But my predictions here, so I guess I’ll follow suit with everyone Going from the east. Yeah, I think we get the defenders Defenders in st. Louis and It’s a tough one, but I’m gonna go defenders here. I’m gonna go defenders and on the West I know everyone’s gonna hate me but I’m gonna say Houston Dallas in the in the For the West here. I’m gonna go home or style. I’m picking Houston and I’m picking Houston to win We’re gonna rough them up know what a run and shoot all over everyone is there’s nothing you can do I am NOT biased I don’t care what you say. We’re just the best and it’s not bragging if it’s true Somebody bias would say, I don’t know. I don’t know. So hey that was just really kind of the intro now We have the best of 2019. So that’s really what we’re here for We have this year in the XFL So usually we do it on a weekly basis, but this is the first year that really made sense And we asked you the fans what do you think the best moments are and we have all sorts of categories and we’re just going to Run through them one by one here. So and that same thing I’m just gonna ask you guys and then we’ll announce the winner here. So let’s move over to the right screen There we go guys see I knew we’d have some technical hiccup, there we go we got to it so Favorite team doesn’t necessarily need to be the best team but your favorite team I’ll kick it off because I think I already showed my cards on this one, but the Houston Austin area Yep, Russell muff. We’re gonna drill them working for h-town June Jones is gonna run and shoot all over you it’s gonna be a good time and I don’t care what you say There’s no defense that can stop us and we’re going for three points on every extra point conversion I don’t care but now that I got that out of the way feeling pretty good by the way J – who do you favorite team The Orlando? Oh well Sorry had to do that I have to say Again, I guess I guess I douse Bob Stoops big game Bob Langer Jones, I just that’s that brand that name Do I think they’re gonna know but it’s the name it’s the brand. It’s what the XFL needed that big name and that’s Yeah, the favored team Good a big fan then actual team as you can tell from a podcast, but yes, I know I’m like, I’m glad you made the pick and didn’t take the easy road out, but let’s move on over to the delivery Oh, no. Sorry. I did it again Tron Hawkins. Who do you got favorite team? I’m a jerk I mean I can deliver still funny to you. I don’t I Like to LA Wildcats, I mean not just cuz I had the t-shirt on what sucking see that but I Their president HBK. She’s awesome. Their coach is probably the best like most energized coats in the league Let’s be honest the quarterbacks call me Josh. It ain’t gonna be Luis Perez The runner back Eliezer who it’s good The rod receivers are spruce and some of them’s amazing and he’s obviously not afraid to cut people if they act So I think I think they’re my favorite team. I’ll just enjoy all their social media and stuff. They do so the Wildcats Alright, man. So let’s we’ll end it off here with the delivery guy. I think we already know but I’ll let you say your piece It’s gonna be h-town though Roughnecks working for you it It was one of those things it’s that’s a family history thing. We grown up my dad and my Grandpa, all of them were Houston Oilers fans, and they were so hurt when they left and so we transition to Cowboys fans So when the Roughnecks? Announced I had to pick Houston. We lived in Houston for a while that we moved over here closer to Dallas So I had to go with my roots. I’m taking Houston. They’re just great Well, especially if you guys were Oilers fans, then you’re loving the jersey and the helmets and the logo. It’s Spot on spot. Yeah So favorite team we went through everyone’s announcements. So here’s what everybody online shows and I think there might be a surprise here But we’re gonna unveil it it is Seattle dragons Seattle dragons one favorite gene those I and I kind of alluded to this earlier But the Dragons fans coming out in full force supporting that team but like I said There’s gonna be some surprises in here and luckily and I’ll say at least this. Hopefully it doesn’t spoil everything not one team won every category, which is exactly how I was hoping it would be I was worried that you know just the fans of one team would just spam something but Something I forgot to mention here – we’re looking at over a thousand entries here so I think that’s a fair sample size of what the league is looking at me personally, I expected the battle Hawks to win just looking at the social media sizes, but we got the Seattle dragons. So we’re gonna move on to the next one here the best logo We’ll start it off with you delivery guy. Who do you think’s got the best logo? You you already said it. It has to be the Houston Roughnecks. It has to be them Only because one their color scheme is great unlike Tampa and Their logo is such a respect to the history of that city sports their sports history They took that Oilers logo made it their own and a lot of Houstonians are gonna love that and I loved it I loved it. As soon as I saw it. That was my team. Yeah yeah, I I Said it earlier yeah, there’s that throwback is it’s just so perfect for that Houston team because and it’s sorry to divulge even those might not Not my turn here, but hey, I’m the host get over it The you know, the Texans are good I always forget that the Texans are pretty good because nobody in Houston really cares about the Texans people say they do but I Think there’s still probably more Cowboys fans here. And again me especially coming from out of state I’m always either a Lions fan which is really hurtful every year or a piston or a Tigers fan But now I feel like the Roughnecks. This is my team, right? This is the first the day I was here and then the Roughnecks came here And so now I feel like it’s really easy for them for me to adopt them as my Houston team And I’m not gonna lie. I was a Astros fan when they were doing good. But that was mainly Verlander He came from the Tigers and he needed a ring, but I’m sorry I do this to you every time Tron Hawkins What do you got for me man? That’s logo I was thinking yeah, I was I was thinking Tampa then I remember that looks like a female reproductive organ So it’s actually the guardians I love the guardians logo Don’t know exactly what it is, but it looks awesome on the helmets, which we’ll get to later Well, I think they got the best logo Probably anybody Yeah, the guardians logo is pretty slick. I tend to agree But before I give my opinion, let’s move over to Jay – what favorite logo best logo? Thank You Trump Say night Rasta my thunder again, I do love the guardians logo, but so my number 2 logo Won’t be the Antichrist or the anti-villain or whoever you want to be on the beaded the stubborn guy I do think Dallas has a pretty nice logo It’s just that because that’s that color combination It makes that logo pop out like the color combination of the guardians and I hope the god no one says Tampa Anyone can do the V. It’s very simple. But yeah, I like Dallas logo, but try need to stop stealing my thunder before The be fair on campus if Tampa used their alternate logo the snake are they gonna beam up? They would win the best logos? Is great. Yeah, I think it’d have been second to last This is that last Yeah, so it’s my turn here and I’m really tempted to vote for the the Vipers now just because I guess I’m just a bad Guy, but I can’t I can’t even do that to myself. I’m sorry bikers fans and you know There are Piper’s fans there they do exist they do exist and I don’t want to offend any one of you guys so if you guys want to join in the funds and contribute to XFL newsroom and help let your team be Represented this is might be your chance because you can see how I don’t want quick The Vipers are the XFL version of the Elena miss. I mean legends. Oh, yeah, I forgot about this I forgot about that. That was those were good times So my favorite logo honestly, I have a tie I am gonna repeat two answers here but I’m gonna go with Houston and the Guardians is hard for me to pick between the two I I tend to say Houston but I it really might be because I’m a homer fan and it possibly is But regard here’s like used to say this stuff No, I’m not I swear, you know, but hey if you guys want us, you know, I only live right down the block folks Yeah starting to sound like the political out here right guys have the phone number. Let’s make it happen but now I’d say between Houston and New York now, I would say and I’m gonna go bold here. I’m gonna say a close like second third La I like that LA logo. It’s it fits for me agree. I don’t think every logo needs to be a logo I think it’s nice to have something switched up with just the lettering. I like their alternative logo The only thing I would change with their alternative logo is they should remove One of the cloth the claw marks so it could potentially be like a W That’s the only criticism I would have on the Wildcats alt logo but Let’s go. What did the fans think let’s take a look and Drumroll, please St. Louis battle Hawks None of us predicted it but it happened and I like the logo there’s a few things I do like about it There’s like if you flip the logo upside down you see STL and there’s PI hidden Between the two T’s and an L. So there’s some things as like a marketing guy and from a design aspect that I can appreciate Just me personally I don’t know, but let me ask you guys Will this run down the list here Jay – what do you think about the the battle Hawks logo here? well, it’s It’s a it’s okay logo But what turned me off about this logos when they put it on the helmet If you’re literally trying to copy the Philadelphia Eagles helmet just do the Philadelphia Eagles helmet. I love the color cut scheme I love the actual logo, but you put that logo on the helmet. It turns me off That’s my pain about saying well, I must say it’s bad. It’s better than Tampa in LA in my opinion, but it just doesn’t look like on the helmet in my opinion delivery guy any thoughts I actually think If campus is the worst I would say st. Louis is just a notch above them. I don’t like it at all I don’t know. There’s just something about it. That just seems Think of where I’m awkward is like pedestrian kind of like the Dragons logo. Mm-hmm. Just like something could find off clip All right. I just wasn’t super impressed with it. Yeah, I tend to agree. Meanwhile, every battle Hawks fan is turning this off right now In piece next time Yeah, I don’t mind it But it unlike all the other logos and league is still on tell us what the hill of battle Hulk really is Cuz you got the fans going quk on and it’s named – bird It’s like let’s be like a warplane in it. So I don’t understand you know, it’s just a sword wing so still don’t tell us, you know, we think at the Least we look at the LA logo or even the backers logo. We know okay It’s a snake and they’re from LA like you still want to tell us what the hell battle Hulk really is for being honest No, I think that’s a valid as well here. But let’s let’s edge away from this conversation. Let’s move into the abolitionist office Yeah before so I’m watching the view numbers. They’re just dropping right now the come on folks. We didn’t mean it But let’s move on we had best slogan here. So I’m gonna start it off here. I’m gonna say Best one I like raising. Hell. I think it’s the most bold of the four I think it makes a statement. It’s a little bit different. I didn’t pick my home team and since since I’m on the pedestal here and again I hope you know nobody takes this too personally if anyone’s listening, but that’s probably my least favorite one I think that they really missed an opportunity to go for hashtag rough them up or Hashtag drill them or something. I think working for h-town is safe But yeah, I’m gonna go a raising hell but J – what do you got for his favorite logo? even though organ, yes, sir, even though I just bashed this logo and this organization just a second ago, but Give me the Top Gun theme and get me clear to engage I love that that that that tells me that you going you know what let’s get ready Let’s go kick some ass in a game. I love that slogan. Yeah, I agree with you What’s Houston, by the way, that just seems like it’s too low-key, but it was either raisin hell or clear to engage Those were my top two and I have to go with st. Louis because we need to bring back to st Louis fans that we just chased away. So yeah guys somebody start to floss out Tweet the tweeted out Jay – hey, we’re talking good about you guys. Again. Sean Hawkins. Who what do you got? Favorite slope? I’m gonna surprise some people. All right. I like ready to strike by Tampa Bay. I mean it just fits I mean, it’s just saying you don’t know when it’s coming first with chespin’s offense They’re gonna strike. They’re gonna throw the ball deep and volley to protest down I mean ready to strike actually if it’s with the Vipers, I like it better than working for h-town in the Wildcat way I mean the wildcat way they said that they I think I think they missed opportunity with that to be a radius truck I think I think it fits. I think if it’s really good can would football turns and with the whole snake theme Yeah, I like it delivery guy what he got here Man, so I had my favorite in mind. Somebody said it so one excellent Somebody said it and what my third one and then Tron just said it So if I had to go with my other favorite one it would have to be just on duty with the new your guardians because it’s just simple its I Think it can be all encompassing like it could mean on duty with offense and defense. You know what I mean? It’s it’s I Just like it because it really represents what they’re trying to be You know that might even work for the DC defenders on duty, you know, the DC defenders fell in the same trap is Houston did So I would have say the ones y’all picked were some of my favorites, but if I had a piece Different I would go with the guardians on duty and I appreciate that but let’s see Let’s see what the fans had to say quite I say I can’t remember who won this but I have a good idea But we’re gonna drum roll this out Yep, just like I thought raising hell for the Dallas renegades renegades fans cheer. Pat yourself on the back It’s gonna be better than when we beat you, you know this April, but again, we don’t want to lose those fans either Let’s just move on best venue best venue and again, it doesn’t have to be the venue closest to you Just what do you think? The best venue in the league is delivery guy? We’re kicking it off with with you here What do you got I? Was debating between two But if I’m gonna choose one, I’m gonna choose CenturyLink in Seattle. I think that’ll be the best venue They know how to host games. They know how to do it right and their fan base They show up for Seattle home games, they show up and I think they’re gonna show up for the Dragons, especially with Jim Zorn They love him there. They’re gonna show up and represent. I think that’s gonna be one of the best venues Yeah III think you might be onto something here. If you looked at their the mini camps that they opened up to fans Last weekend a couple weeks and weekends ago I think there was over a thousand people there just for the mini camp which you know Houston did pretty well But nothing nothing like that and that that says a lot Tron Hawkins, my man didn’t forget you this time best venue Uh-oh. Did we lose you? Don’t once Going twice. Oh, alright, we’re gonna move on to J – well, I’m gonna ping him in the background here. That’s than you ah, The best video of all sports usually goes to the team that will have the biggest crowds and usually Seems what the smaller stadiums have better advantages. I Won’t give you guys a wild-card Adi filled DC because it wants 20,000 that means they don’t have to put a lot of people in the stands like global I Park or the dough for instance or ass injury link field and make it look full you put 17,000 people on stay and mix into the look full I’m gonna have the experience to be at already filled on opening winks. So hopefully the on-field beat on top of this pretty much deal, but based on this design of the stadium makes it more of a fan, you know more of a Hostile environment for opposing teams, and I just want to see how a football game or XFL game of this magnitude Fits in a state like the MLS sized stadiums and that could be something that we look forward to the future But I’m looking forward to Audie field. Yeah, you stole mine so that you’ve got one in you finally got to steal one I hope you feel real good about yourself And you know, I’m debating not I’m not gonna pick my hometown Stadium right off the bat. I’m gonna say She’s the other one that I would probably pick is Going to be the dome at least for that first week. They are going to have it rocking I think people miss football in st. Louis. You’re getting so much coverage from the media out there and most importantly is they’re really the only fans in the league that don’t need to worry about whether right They have the dome even if it’s going to be cold outside which still Surprises me that they play on the road for the first two games I would have assumed that would have been a good opportunity to have host maybe New York or Seattle Maybe some of those colder areas those first two weeks But that that’s what I’m gonna go with since you you took the audio field now naturally My favorite stadium is T Dec. UHI. We’ve got you on camera now. We’re now we’re cooking with butter I don’t know if that’s a thing but we are doing that see how long it lasts. Yeah Now naturally TD ECU is my favorite because I have seats there section 190 represent I’m ready to get loud. But let’s see I’m not skipping anyone, right? Yes My oh yeah, that’s already filled out there It’s the newest one. It’s small it’s gonna be intimate. So that’s why it’s my favorite. So that’s not going. No. No, sorry I’m glad you brought up. I forgot that that’s when you’re dropped out here. So yeah, good. Let’s see Yeah, let’s see what we got. What the fans chose? Century Link field so delivery guy you were on point with that and I think for the same Man, yep. Yeah, I think they’re gonna be rockin. I think I think it’s gonna surprise I think it’s gonna surprise a lot of people, you know Clearly the XFL is not going to sell out any of these stadiums stadiums completely, you know from the bottom and the top bowl But I think they’re gonna do very well in the in the lower bowl. I’ll tell you this I may have brought this up on one of my other shows have brought it to brought up to you guys separately but when I went to the mini camp in Houston, they had red markers on the seats that were available and there’s There’s not many there’s really not many. Most of them are sold sold out which it is a great thing but could be it could be a problem if they’re all season ticket holders and people get bored after a Couple weeks, but I’m I’m tending to believe that you know, the weather is too good in Houston It’s such a good opportunity to do something affordable with your family, but CenturyLink Field sign them up sign them up So we’re moving on best quarterback best quarterback of the league now I’m gonna I’m gonna go first here. I’m gonna make three picks. I’m gonna make three picks here I’m gonna give my reasons for them. Well, we’ll leave us nothing. Yeah. All right. The first one is is Cheese I am sorry BJ Daniels, right because he Sorry cheese. I knew I was gonna screw up Brandon Silver’s god I hope nobody’s watching this Brandon Silver’s because he joined us saying on anything this week in the XFL But then I’m gonna make it easy for everyone else because nobody’s gonna pick this guy. I don’t think I’m going with Connor Cook I’m going with the number of to pick in the XFL Draft Jay – what do you got for me? Well Say that you stole the Thunder with brain Silver’s By I got it’ll go to the number one overall player the first sign a is Landry Jones – Let’s see if he can be the except Phil’s buff Holmes Brady Aaron Rodgers type of player that can bring butts two seats and you know eyes on TVs and a quarterback in my opinion to look out for is a Little guy, that’s no one wants to talk about but I think he is going to be a Very sneaky sneaky should start but Tron doesn’t like him apparently Li’s Perez, I believe he’s a very saw the quarterback. I just don’t I just I think he’s He has the tools. He’s just been overlooked his whole career. So those are my two guys All right. So let’s move on over to Tron Hawkins. Who do you got? That’s quarterback. It’s a la quarterback It’s LA quarterback West Josh Johnson Reason, why is it’s one he’s got he’s got credentials I mean sure he’s played for all 32 NFL teams, but he’s a veteran. He’s actually the first pick in the aaf Quarterback Jeff over some of the people lightly Reese Perez and Erin Murray and some of them not to mention Oliver what pretty much when he was doing interview about how he wanted to how the Lions wanted him pretty much said he was gonna be Starting quarterback for the Wildcats. I mean he kind of let the cat out of the bag it makes you think that maybe That’s who they originally wanted. They just couldn’t get him at the time So they kind of just say don’t lose for us because they was a sigh he was assigned to LA Like he was like a free agency pick up He was assigned to LA because la wanted him I think he fits better what Norm Chow wants to do and I think he will Be the starter week 1 against y’all’s favorite team there ethnics As long he could be the starter as long as we win, that’s fine Let’s move on over to the delivery guy here. Who do you got best quarterback? ok, so I Remember watching Luis Perez in af and he was he was something to watch consider, especially considering his history his football history he’s really something and But I would think Josh Johnson’s gonna get to start over him. I think he’s just simply better I think with his recent experience with the Redskins and then coming over here and how Another team wanted him like Tron just said Josh Johnson’s gonna get the start, but that’s not who I’m picking I just wanted to make sure Jay – knew he was wrong I this delivery guy I can I said that I’m excited about Matt McGloin in New York because of the head coach that he has and the the guys that he’s the coach Gillibrand who’s worked with in the past and What he’s gonna do with Matt, so I’m really excited to see him take the field and see what he can accomplish. I Think those are all great picks quite honestly, I think all the quarterbacks are pretty solid in this league Which is awesome just to say right but let’s see. Let’s see what the fans thought here I don’t know if it’s gonna be a hard one for everyone to figure out but it is Landry Jones, which kind of makes sense? He will always try to come out He’s everyone knew he was gonna be in Dallas the most the most unkept secret in town But we’re gonna move to the biggest draft or the best draft pick And I’m gonna start this one you’re skipping 100 and I am the worst at this. How did I oh, that’s right I’m the boss. I can do whatever I want best announce team delivery guy What do you got for me? Curt Menefee and Joe Clair, I think they’re gonna be great together I think they have great Presence they have great knowledge. Especially Joe’s gonna come with their college experience and all that knowledge and I Just like both of them in general. So to have them together to me. I’m just super excited about that. I Agree, so, let’s move on Tron Hawkins best and we can say the same ones. There’s only three to choose from here We’re gonna overlap sooner or later But it’s it’s code McAfee ain’t joke lat Joe clad knows a lot of these guys because all these guys came from the college game so he scouted them and seen them Um, probably on Fox on the Big Ten guys gonna be twelve guys Carmera fee he’s been the host in the Fox pregame show for forever now and he’s getting kind of back to where he kind of Started at so yeah, I think they’re definitely the best announce team nothing It’s the other two, but I just like him I’ll just enjoy hearing them together I think more than the other other two that we got seats from for sure for sure. Jay – best announce team might sell could be announced table on sway is certainly individual and gave me uh, Give me that crazy partner from Indianapolis gave me all of Pat McAfee, please I don’t care what channels aren’t just give me then please he makes a game They’re exciting mixes product very exciting benefits of olive oil crew. I gotta side with the guys I do agree with them they hooked me into a court, but I just like I’m honestly at miles opinion really they picked the great cast of all them all the All the games. It’s gonna be really really awesome a Presentation on TV and I can’t wait for it yeah, I think yeah and even before I get my answer here well I’ll get my answer because it’s just a mixture of all the answers here But yeah Curt Menefee joke lat obviously the top choice here. Nothing against the other guys But yeah that honorable mention goes to Pat McAfee. I want to see as much of that as I can He’s the perfect guy In the perfect role for what they have him doing just hanging out on the sidelines running in and it sounds like they’re giving him Kind of free range to do whatever he wants and I he’s the kind of guy that’s gonna do it there So yeah, I’m excited to see that but let’s see what the fans thought on the best announce team And I don’t think it’s gonna be any surprise here. It’s the Fox crew its Curt Menefee joke lat like I said, I don’t think there’s any surprise there, but I think this was touched on by a few guys here just Having all of these announced teams are a million times ahead of the original XFL like we don’t have jr we don’t have Jesse the body Ventura and we have guys that a lot of people are going to recognize as Football announcers right, especially with Curt Menefee, you know me personally. I like the Fox pre-show every Sunday So if if I didn’t know the XFL was around and I’m sitting around on a Saturday or Sunday And I’m flipping through the channels. I’m like, wait a minute Curt. Menefee is on my TV talking about football Wait a minute. The XFL is back I’m gonna probably check it out and just because it’s gonna be kind of a little shock to see Oh, this is more way more professional than I ever thought it would be again, this is all of the teams are pretty solid again better than the last time around and We touched it for a second. Yeah, yeah I’m just adding on the top of it For the XFL fans are with us today. Thank you. Appreciate watching us on These these crews got to do one thing One thing only they need to present the product the XFL as a league itself Not as what it used to be in 2001 because majority of the people who think of the XFL I think this league is a joke. I work for for state universities Media and I’ll know a lot of fans are from for stateside. I think the XFL is a bunch of jokes so that just tells you where the actual our opinion is about League and where the actual national media and actual bigger fan base is believe with XFL is and For the production and presentation by these crews and they hit it hit it out of the park You’ll see the sleek succeed because people start coming back like oh, this is actually real football. This is not the old XFL So we just need that to hopefully kick off and hopefully it’s you know in a couple of years. We’re three years on whoa We’re talking about very successful exit though. I Hope so and I think so, I think so and but yeah A lot of it’s gonna have to do with this production value And I think we’re gonna see a lot of things that the XFL innovates whether they succeed or don’t succeed We saw it with the spidercam the first time around I think we’re going to see a lot of heavy usage in that augmented reality space We see the WWE testing it out at kind of their major pay-per-views with WrestleMania Survivor Series Royal Rumble where they have the you know, the augmented reality graphics, you know kind of hovering over the crowd I think we’re gonna see a lot of things like that in the XFL and just experimental things like even going back to the spring league who they were posting different videos of like all the Technology partners that it came out tried new things, but they had like the helmet cam where I don’t know I wish I had it on hand to show it here. And if you haven’t seen it look it up after this stream But it basically shows from the receiver standpoint of the ball going in the air landing in their arms It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen I think that that is going to set them apart and quite honestly I think the quality of gameplay is just going to be better. We saw the first step of it with the AAF But quite honestly the it’s unfortunate for the AF But fortunately for the XFL They got a lot of free labor out of that, but you know a lot of players in the XFL were in the alliance So they at least had a check they had they were playing last year They were getting used to that similar different style of play also, although there’s gonna be some differences between the two here, but I think ultimately that did the league a favor plus we Inherited all sorts of back-office members in front office members things like that But again, I’m gonna stop stop going on here We’re gonna move on to the best best draft pick or your favorite draft pick. I’m going fully Homer I already brought it up earlier in this to Connor cook number of to pick in the draft Michigan State quarterback my home state, Michigan So I’m super excited about that and honestly just real quick to piggyback on that comment I don’t think we’re gonna have a competition for quarterbacks in Houston I think we’re gonna see a healthy dose of both quarterbacks I think June Jones is going to be swapping those guys out Maybe by the quarter maybe by the the drive Who knows but I think we’re gonna see a healthy dose of those guys just for the fact that he picked a quarterback number one Before anything after her just receiving, you know, an assigned quarterback, but that’s my picked Ron Hawkins Sorry, J – J I’m waving it to you this time best draft pick. Ah best draft pick is actually a Very very very, you know, the hero build-up character Jeremiah Spencer linebacker going to LA Wildcats ugly that’s a real story that you can build a story off of him on the national media and you know, This will help you know Push the product and I think that what that guy’s gone through and getting finally getting his chance with the LA Wildcats I think that’s a very good Story and I think that’s what makes this league good it gets those guys a chance So I think he is something to be proud about that’s why he’s my best bit So I have I have some bad news for you. Jay – I just yeah Unfortunate news for you. So tell him he Unfortunately what man Jeremiah Spicer has been cut by the Wildcats? She’s not even over though and I still expect to see him in the league. If not in team nine I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Jeremiah Spicer, but I had I hate to be the bearer of bad news Alright now I bear bad. So I’ll go to my boy, my friend not really friend I’ve known him and I know Cobras colleagues Reggie, North Carolina backer from the type of a Vipers I was way expecting you to say Shawn Oakman so I could break the news to you twice, but I’m glad you did Okay, so let’s move on here to Tron hawkins fast traffic Well, I think I froze again anyway And I think he could have went first overall. I like Christine Michael. He went knocked over all the st. Louis He played for Seattle. He was a good running back good running back attacks and iam He just had a lot of injuries along the way. I think he kind of fits in what st Louis wants to do won the ball him play good deals So I think Christine Michael could’ve went way I eat you to went ahead He’s only number one be honest where you probably look at all the running backs in the league But yeah, Christine Michael fits in what they want to do just ground-and-pound. I think he might be a dark-horse MVP candidate. I Kind of agree there, but let’s move on to delivery guy best draft pick for me the best draft pick With the what they I think the scheme what they’re going to try to do is wide receiver Rashad Ross to the LA Wildcats. I watched him play in AF and he was Super impressive he was strong physical quick It was against When he played the Apollo’s When they wanted with the Arizona hotshots when they won that game or it was against Salt Lake. He got injured yet he would come out make a 30 20 yard catch Get hurt and they get out but he kept coming back in and make him play So he’s tough and having him with Josh Johnson thrown to him. I think he’s gonna be amazing so for me He was the best thing I like that I like that take and I think that’s kind of a dark horse pick Which is good. I thought I liked that I like the diversity in the picks here. I did You know, this is the one I did forget to make a card for this one But I’ll just announce it. So the fans chose Christine Michael as the best picks Toronto we’ll see you I think you got it on the dot there signed you up But now we’re going to go to the complete opposite biggest draft snub Delivery guy we’re gonna start with you and with you start with you biggest draft snob. Who do you got I Have tweeted about this multiple times Carter’s Schult is the biggest draft snub In the XFL that dude should get a chance with one of these teams He was phenomenal in AF then he went to the Vikings afterwards and did well there in the preseason Um, I thought they’re sure he was gonna get drafted. I am still shocked that he’s not picked up right now I don’t know what he’s doing. I’ve tweeted about this. He’s he’s tweeted to me about this he his agent husband and like has told him that he’s ready he wants to do it for Some reason they have picked him up. He was leading Tackler and Sacre for leaving in saxony afore a while He is just where the ball is. He’s quick. He’s strong I’m just disappointed. He’s not in the league and I think there’s a lot of fans that share that sentiment I’ve seen that online Quite honestly, I didn’t even remember the name I felt bad. But yeah look looking him up, but I’m quite surprised dice I have to imagine there’s a reason but I don’t know what the reason is and I’m not gonna speculate on that Shrine Hawkins biggest draught snub. Who do you got? Terrell Owens I’m just kidding Well, you’re right that was the worst one for me I’ll tell you Yes Zach Mettenberger, I know that name kind of I mean I know people know the name you forget that when he was in the NFL the Tennessee Titans He actually did pretty good and some of his teammates was kind of pissed off too And they picked Marcus Mariota because they thought Mettenberger should have been the cornerback if you kind of overlooked what he didn’t they often kind of look what he did for Tennessee and LSU and in the even it kind of came out that he was doing like featurette so they accepted everything and he was actually being promoted by Them and then it just kind of disappeared or locket without he’s me tier one quarterback Actually, I think I think he might be actually a better quarterback than maybe Aaron Larry and some of them something He’s the biggest stress because I think he might be I thought he would have been willing to tear one quarterback from being honest So I want to give delivery guy a chance to to rebuttal here because I saw some movements going on and I figure this myself I Don’t know because you talked about his performance at AF and I remember watching it and it was brutal to watch him again. No It was hard not only was some of that you got look at his teammates around him too though. I mean That’s true But he did have a good he had I forgot which his receiver was Respawn who did who is on the team? And then he had one of the best running backs as well in AF Zach Stacy I It was also his the way he conducted himself on the field. I felt like he was throwing hissy fits all the time He was young everybody. And so when when I just was like cuz he finished after a while and that helped the Memphis Express I was not surprised at all. He wasn’t picked So let’s move on now. I just sorry I had to get I had to get the rebuttal because there was a Heck of a reaction going on over there, but sorry no. No, it’s all good. I like this is this is what the show is? Schedule no schedule. We’re just kind of doing what we want here J – biggest drafts nub Biggest stress nub. Ah Let me make sure he’s not in the league right now just you know saying I mess up on their Section it’s gonna have to be Trent Richardson My opinion the guy was a beast in bohmian shortly. Archie was pretty good And we all we thought he was gonna go at least in the earlier rounds, but and thought maybe in the open rounds Yeah, it’s gonna be hard not see him in the XFL uniform seeing that at the time when he was announced he was advertised to Being maybe one of the top key players in a league But I heard that that’s like what Trevor Knight remember he had a little highlight reel for the XFL and he never got drafted So I think Trent Richardson is my big snob So yeah, so you stole mine there So I’m gonna pick the other option which I kind of agree with them both Even though he wasn’t in the draft I’m saying Johnny Manziel. I don’t think and and I’m and I’m gonna preface it this way I don’t think it was a snub in the in the fact that he he’s better than the other quarterbacks But I think the name recognition I think a lot of people expected him to be in there But as far as quality of play and this is nothing against Trent Richardson He’s he’s very good at those short yard plays I think of the list that I had up there He’s probably is the biggest snub there But the fans have spoken. Let’s see what they had to say Let me get this cute up here. So the fans Johnny Manziel they agreed with me again. It’s a little bit of a little bit of a workaround there He wasn’t really in the draft. But you know, I quite honestly, I don’t think there were a lot of snubz in the draft I think we got a lot of the right players in the right places. So that one’s kind of a tough one But we’re gonna move on to the best uniform again. This doesn’t need to be your favorite or your Home jersey, but the best one. I’ll kick it off here. Actually. Yeah, I’m gonna kick it off I’m probably gonna steal someone’s but I don’t care. I’m going with the New York Guardians. I think they That’s probably the most solid Jerzy uniform out there at one there a wage that it’s the whole combination Right between the ball of the helmet the home and the Oh a Jersey. I think they’re all solid There’s bits and pieces of each other jerseys that maybe I like a little bit better, but I think the Guardians over the top, I think just the the complete package but J – best uniform favorite uniform Dallas renegades baby blue and black all day. I Just that color combination just pops out more to me than the other I would say Tampa Bay boats – green. There’s too much green. Yeah I’m that’s joking that Tampa Bay’s not even and then the list so it’s going to be the Dallas or renegades I like it man. Ron Hawkins best uniform. What do you got? We lost Ron again so man Let me try to add him in but in the meantime delivery guy best uniform. Who do you got here? With the color scheme now I don’t like the logo but I like the way this yellow dragons put their uniforms together the way their colors look the way even the home and away and I looked into that because With the away jerseys. I like the Vipers away Jersey the home jersey that green on green. You’re right. That’s just terrible The renegades were closed They their color schemes really cool but I have to say I think the Seattle dragons did a great job with their uniforms again, their logo is Not good, but I like the way they’re going uniforms came together at the end So what oh, we got Tron back. So let’s let’s go to you here best best uniform It’s the New York Guardians Yeah They I think I think they’re gonna win by a landslide just the helmet the Kuro scheme Only I like about the uniforms and Generals all their way team Just kind of look the same with all the lot But to me, the newer Guardians is the best one just everything about it including that the helmets the best snow in the league Yeah, I’m excited I really hope they start selling away jerseys because that would be the one I would buy instantly as that guardians away Jersey, I think Think they’re they’re really slick. But let’s see what the fans had to say best uniform in the league goes to New York Guardians, I think a couple of us expected that but yeah, like I started it off with Look they are the complete package, right? and so we really only have one one thing last year is the announcement of the year, but I think Before we go into that. I think it’s awesome that we did get a good mix of answers in this poll when I really when I first kicked it off quite honestly, I just expected it to be everything st. Louis or Seattle or neck-and-neck, but I think we got a good mix Unfortunately, these Houston roughneck fans need to pick up pick it up and get in the next poll here Hopefully that end of season poll. The Roughnecks are on that favorite team list But we’re gonna go to the announcement of the year. There was a lot of big announcements that the league had Like I mentioned in the show last Friday, you know the luxury of next year is we’re gonna have all sorts of different things to talk about right we’re gonna have real games and a Championship and trades as we’re kind of seeing now, but right now we really just have these announcements that have led us up So XFL delivery guy your favorite announcement of the year. I Would have to say it’d be when they announced the names and logos of all eight teams when they did the live broadcast and they had in Colin Cowherd and forgot her her name But they they did the press conference and they released the names logo says I remember I was delivering and I pulled over Stopped and got my phone out and was watching it and then after was then I kept delivering So for me, I was super excited about that and we waited so long for it They teased us for so long and they finally gave it to us Yeah, that was like the longest summer because it was yeah, we’re gonna get him in March maybe April did June or July for sure then August finally came around and I’m not gonna go on here Tron Hawkins best announcement of the year The team uniforms Hi Kelly was just an all-night thing. I kept refreshing Twitter and Facebook. Just waiting for new ones to pop up There’s a lot of fun and he had the little videos about it and everybody just only or just talking crap about him Some people even praised mouthing. That’s the best. That’s the best announcement. Just just wait No, not for just refresh and refresh refresh and wait for the next best come out. So yeah, that’s my favorite That is my favorite now for the year. That was a fun night Yeah, that was a little bit different way to announce it not by not giving them, you know all at once but throughout the same day gave a little bit of an excitement there but J – Announcement of the year, what do you got? The announcement of the year, it’s – my haters out there that trolled me on Twitter It’s Bob Stoops That the announcement of Bob Stoops in my opinion or the head coaches Special with the name of Bob Stoops will made the XFL illegitimate league Right off the bat because you know Bob Stoops who is you know, a legend in Oklahoma will not leave Oklahoma or go coach of football with a gimmick League and Bob Stoops made the XFL Legit, so I think Bob Stoops higher and the coaches were some of the big announcements which was a very long summer But that was a good way to start it off. Ya know I Tend to agree with you there, but my favorite one and I’m going way back Oh, you know this wasn’t even in the year the locations were last year crap now, I got to pick a different one I didn’t even look at my own options. I’m the worst host. I’m bad at this So yeah, I’m gonna probably say that the team identities. I know delivery guy you started off with that one But yeah, just finally getting finally seeing what what were fans of right finally having the opportunity to see that logo and Honestly, even for the logos that are a little bit down on the list I I think all of them are pretty solid in the lung in the long run, right? I don’t think there’s any that are in there that are similar to the old XFL they’re just too cartoony or Granted the old XML had a few good logos in there, but some of them just I don’t know I always hear that people love that maniacs logo, but to me it that feels too on a Secondary league where as the new xml’s logo all look at least professional or on par with a college logo Which in my mind is a good thing, but let’s see what the fans voted biggest Announcement best announcement of the year. We’re rolling. Let’s see what we got and I hit the wrong button. It is the team uniforms I was surprised by this. I was surprised by this now. I got to write Hey sign you up. I I thought it was going to be the team names I thought for sure is gonna be the team names they came in second But I will say though to be fair though, the uniform the uniform happens. They’ll get later So not just be like recency bias as well. That won’t want that May be the case that may be the case, but they say we got through everything.
