- In the video above, NFL star Marcedes Lewis of the Jacksonville Jaguars talked about Vince McMahon bringing back the XFL. He said that while he doesn't know if the XFL will be able to compete with the NFL, it's good for people that can't make the league although it will be looked at as a downgrade. Lewis laughed when asked about players not being able to have criminal records, noting that it's "open to interpretation." Lewis also talked about players having to stand for the National Anthem.
"They [the players] may not play ball," Lewis said. "That might affect who you're able to get in that league."
- The Mirror has a story here about Sheamus discussing football / soccer star Alexis Sanchez moving from Arsenal to Old Trafford.
"The thing is about Alexis Sanchez, it's all about money," Sheamus said. "Last year he stopped caring, stopped putting any effort in. Why do you want a player like that? Why would you want a player who throws his toys out the pram just so he can get a move to somewhere else with more money?"
