The NFL has been around for a very long time which is why they can pay a minimum of $480k. Give it a few years and it will absolutely compete with the NFL.
Every spring football league has failed. I don’t see how this one will be any different. All the players in it are NFL cuts. If they don’t get TV ratings, they’re done. More than likely, the league won’t last a few years.

The World football league, the USFL and the first XFL all failed.
The USFL early on had guys like Jim Kelly and Herschel Walker sign there instead of the NFL. That won’t happen with the XFL. It doesn’t have the TV contracts that the NFL does so it can’t attract anywhere near the same level of talent.

Plus the owners of those teams in the USFL had big $ and where in the belief that they could take the #1 spot in professional football. The Steelers lost Jimmy Smith WR due to a big contract also at that time.

XFL folded. The cv-virus didn’t help, but the league would have folded anyway. Spring football has never succeeded and can’t with inferior players.

We could be looking at Spring NFL play under the conditions covid19 has presented. Maybe we will get some quality spring play in 2021....
