We bid an emphatic good riddance to a crappy 2020 with our second-annual holiday roundtable spectacular featuring the return of fellow defunct sports enthusiasts Andy Crossley (Fun While It Lasted & Episode 2); Paul Reeths (OurSportsCentral.com, StatsCrew.com & Episode 46); and Steve Holroyd (Episodes 92, 109, 149 & 188) – for a spirited roundtable discussion about the past, present and potential future of “forgotten” pro sports teams and leagues.
It's a look back at some of the year’s most notable events, including:
The mid-season implosion of the reincarnated XFL;
Premier League Lacrosse's absorption of 20-year-old Major League Lacrosse;
New names for the NFL's Washington and Raiders franchises; AND
Major League Baseball’s RSVP approach to contracting the minors.
Plus, some predictions on what might transpire in 2021, as:
Cleveland's baseball club ponders a new nickname - and the others likely to follow;
Adidas unevenly tries to cash in on NHL retro jerseys;
Soccer expansion in Louisville (NWSL), Austin (MLS) and NISA; AND
We continue to search for anyone with updates about Mark Cuban’s Professional Futsal League!
