Lee Ann Herring-Olvedo MESPORTS SOUTH Week 1 of the revived XFL is in the books. While there is a lot for football fanatics to be excited about it still remains too early in the ball game to see if the XFL will be embraced enough to stand the test of time. Now that the curiosity[…]
Lee Ann Herring-Olvedo They say every set back has a comeback right? The question of how many times can setbacks lead to a comeback for a spring football league that actually will last? Hell, some of the leading tech, entertainment, and football minds couldn’t get the Alliance of American Football (AAF) to finish an entire[…]
Mark Bacon — Main Event Sports DCThe XFL is back. Ask not why but why now? The reboot of the XFL just debuted — the weekend after the Super Bowl. That’s like having a sewerage commission election the Tuesday after the presidential election. They start playing XFL games on the heels of the NFL’s grandest game? That’s[…]
Lee Ann Herring-Olvedo MESPORTS SOUTH DALLAS— The cruel and unusual punishment that comes with being a Cowboys fan the past decade is finally at rest. It still may be a while before anyone should start saying that “Americas Team” is back but at least it seems that the new era and decade for the Cowboys[…]
Mark Bacon—Main Event Sports DC There’s a lot to like about the Washington Redskins’ hiring of Ron Rivera, and one way to look at the choice is as simple as it gets: They are better two days into 2020 than they were two days before it began. Rivera as the coach offers a straightforward, sleeves-rolled-up,[…]
Mark R. Bacon—Main Event Sports DC First half in two words: COMPLETE DISASTER. The Redskins fired coach Jay Gruden after an 0-5 start. They failed to trade holdout tackle Trent Williams, leading to harsh words by the Pro Bowler after he reported. They lost key players to injuries (tight end Jordan Reed and running back Chris Thompson) and, at 1-8,[…]

The No. 2 and No. 3 picks have each shown flashes of All-Star[…]
Mark R. Bacon—Main Event Sports DC The NBA Pre-Season Rankings Reverse Jinx lives! The Wiz—dead last in that annual rankings crap shoot—are kinda … fun? They are especially so with Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans—The Latvian Laser—manning the forward spots. (This kind of look, pairing two tweeners who lean more toward the nominal power forward designation, seems to[…]
Mark R Bacon—Main Event Sports DC An owner has more impact on an NFL team than what meets they eye. When looking at an owner’s “performance” it is important to consider the financial state of the team, its marketability, and of course, how things are doing on the football side of things. It is an[…]
Mark R Bacon—Main Event Sports DCOn Wednesday night, Beal, 26, will begin his eighth season in Washington. It could become his first all-NBA campaign, as he will have plenty of opportunity to stand out without fellow all-star John Wall, who missed much of last year and could miss most or all of this season due to[…]
