Vince McMahon on Kaepernick Playing in the XFL: 'Why Not?'

After the XFL's miserable first run, the current political climate and the increased consumption of digital content could be the flawless time for McMahon to try to correct the one big failure of his career.

"I have no idea whether or not President Trump will support this", McMahon said on a live stream conference call.

Almost 20 years after the league's swift rise and fall, WWE chairman Vince McMahon announced that league would "re-imagine" football in 2020, promising a shorter, faster-paced and easier-to-understand game. "We want someone who wants to take a knee to do their version of that on their personal time".

During a conference call to make the announcement, McMahon noted he is now looking into various ways of airing the XFL, including social platforms, television and more.

The XFL becoming successful will force the National Football League to compete, and it will force the National Football League to recognize that it needs to keep getting better.

Per ESPN, McMahon's league will not allow any player with a criminal record.

We'll see if that holds true if Johnny Manziel comes knocking, but for now it's a hardline stance.

It argued that increasing the number of Muslims in the country was a danger to Germany's state, society and values. The party said it stood for the constitutional right of religious freedom, regardless of Wagner's conversion.

The main driving force behind the XFL is WWE chairman of the board and CEO, Vince McMahon, who is personally pumping $100 million of his own money into the project through Alpha Entertainment, a new private entity. This time around it will be a straight forward football league. Teams will supposedly be formed in 2019, and games won't be played until 2020.

"The new XFL is an exciting opportunity to reimagine America's favorite sport", said Vince McMahon.

Team identities and logos will be announced following city selection.

The league will consist of eight 40-man teams.

It could be the right time for a rival to the National Football League, which has suffered from sagging ratings and a storm of negative attention over player anthem protests at the start of the current season. Goodell appears to have lost control at times, and that's not a good thing.

The XFL postseason will have two semifinal games and a championship game.
