The Governor of New Jersey Phil Murphy was on-hand to kick off the press conference at MetLife Stadium today. Touting everything from faster game play to decriminalized rosters (seriously), Vince McMahon's National Football League alternative lasted just one season on its first run back in 2001. This online shop was initially re-opened after Vince McMahon's announced months ago, but they have added new items in preparation for added interest.

McMahon thanked the media and the partner cities in attendance.

Billed as a rawer version of football, the original iteration had fewer rules regulating safety, and encouraged hard hits.

Jose Mourinho: We lost so many balls
Later, Mourinho berated his team once again in the dressing room at St Mary's following their third poor performance in a week. Pogba, 25, returned to the team after being benched for the Red Devils' midweek Champions League victory over Young Boys.

The football league founded by wrestling entrepreneur Vince McMahon will be absent in several of the largest television markets: Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston and Atlanta. The new XFL wants to create an atmosphere similar to that of minor league baseball games: Fast-paced, family friendly, and an overall fan-centric experience. He said kickoff will be on February 8, and 9 in 2020, the weekend after the Super Bowl. He stressed a shorter play clock and a modified officiating protocol. It plans to act as a feeder league where players can hone their skills before possibly moving to the NFL. They are establishing health and wellness policies with a health board. Players will be tested for performance-enhancing drugs. They want fans to have access to players and coaches. The players will get insurance coverage.

Oliver Luck said that fans can now go to XFL.com and put a deposit down to buy season tickets. It intends to find players who are struggling to find a job in the National Football League, and from the college ranks. Teams in the new-look XFL will have 40 roster spots and will participate in a 10-week season. The league will fully implement gambling in all states where it is legal. Luck said they are confident that game will be available on multiple platforms when they launch in 2020. He said the goal was to establish a true partnership with cities instead of just renting a building.
