Thanks for the posts bpick. The fact that the XFL Championship Game is on ESPN and not on Fox or ABC is major bush league in my opinion.

With this much TV coverage, the XFL might have a better shot than the AAF had. It was difficult to even find the AAF games if you had any interest in watching one.

I'd have said that at one time, but the idea an event isn't big league if it's on cable went away a long time ago. The networks have slightly more reach, but it's not like it was. The CFP and Final Four have been on cable and done fine. The XFL is aiming at a niche audience anyway. The people who really want to see it, will find it.

I'm guessing that ESPN paid the most for the package.  And I'm not surprised that NBC was shut out after the debacle with Charlie Ebersol and the AAAAAAF

But when was the last time The Super Bowl, or The World Series, or The NBA Championship Series, or The Stanley Cup Final, or The Indy 500, or The Daytona 500, or Wrestlemania, etc., we're s scheduled for a non ppv cable channel? Never.

NBCSN has aired two games of the Stanley Cup final every year for over a decade now.

And it's not about finding where it's at. Bottom line is, if you don't have ESPN, you're screwed. And a lot of cord cutters and smart people gave up on ESPN 3 years ago.

Two commentator teams from ESPN’s college football and NFL rosters will call ABC and ESPN’s 22-game schedule during the inaugural XFL 2020 season.

Play-by-play voice Steve Levy, analyst Greg McElroy, field analyst Tom Luginbill and reporter Dianna Russini will call the highly-anticipated XFL kickoff game – Seattle Dragons vs. DC Defenders (Feb. 8, 2 p.m. ET), the West Final (April 19, 3 p.m. ET), the XFL Championship (April 26, 3 p.m. ET) and weekly Saturday games on ABC in 2020.

A 26-year ESPN veteran, Levy is one of ABC/ESPN’s top college football play-by-play voices. He also called his first Monday Night Football game in September. McElroy, the former national champion quarterback for Alabama, and Luginbill are highly-respected college football voices who already work together on ABC/ESPN games in the fall. Luginbill recently covered the XFL Draft for ESPN, and he was the quarterback coach/offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Xtreme, which won the championship in the original XFL in 2001. Russini is a top NFL insider/reporter and host who worked her first MNF game in September.

Play-by-play voice Tom Hart, analyst Joey Galloway and field analyst Pat McAfee will call weekly Sunday games on ESPN and ABC, beginning with the St. Louis BattleHawks vs. Dallas Renegades (Feb. 9, 5 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Hart is the voice of SEC Saturday Night primetime college football games on SEC Network. Galloway, a 16-year NFL player and former first-round pick, is a top college football studio analyst who has also called games. McAfee, a former All-Pro NFL punter, calls Thursday Night college football games for ESPN and is a regular contributor to Get Up. One of the most charismatic personalities in sports media, McAfee also hosts his own podcast and digital show.

“ABC and ESPN’s presentation of the XFL is going to be innovative and entertaining, and we have assembled a group of commentators that will be very familiar to our viewers. By bringing together some of our most accomplished football experts, we look forward to introducing this exciting new league to fans,” said Lee Fitting, ESPN Senior Vice President, Production.

ESPN coordinating producer Bill Bonnell, who produces ABC’s Saturday Night Football and the College Football National Championship, will oversee ABC/ESPN’s overall XFL production. Bonnell was NBC’s senior coordinating producer in charge of production of the original XFL in 2001, which introduced a variety of innovations that were later adopted by other football broadcasts, including the full-time use of Skycam, enhanced audio and cameras on the field. Weekly XFL games will be produced by ESPN producers Josh Hoffman (Saturdays) and Mandy Cohen (Sundays).

Dianna Russini, when she talks in her N.Y. Italian accent, is so freakin' hot. She doesn't do it on the air though. I love feisty, North East Italian broads.

I wanna see ol' Stone Cold Steve Austin on color. Dead serious.

Steve Levy: "He may have the first down?"

Stone Cold: "I believe that SOB is shy by a cunt hair!"
