The reboot of the much-anticipated XFL hit a big snag on Friday when reports surfaced that the league told player agents that its average player salary will be just $55,00, which is currently lower than what players make in the Canadian Football League.
It should be noted that the Alliance of American Football League, which lasted less than a full season, dished out higher average contracts.
“The memo states that players who are drafted and retained by XFL teams will become full-time employees as of December 4, 2019, and if they remain on a roster they will remain employed through May 31, 2020. Between the base salary, a bonus for being active on game days and a bonus for being on the winning team, the average player will make $55,000 a year.”
Once that information got out, people took to Twitter and began roasting them.
The XFL is slated to kick off in February 2020 after the Super Bowl.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
