Vince McMahon's dreams of another professional football league have been destroyed yet again. The XFL's second try at a league was dealt some heart-breaking news Friday morning when XFL CEO Jeffrey Pollack held a 10-minute conference call to inform employees they have been laid off.

The league will keep a small staff together to deal with the business side of things, but there are no plans to return in 2021. Fans and employees were devasted and took to Twitter to share their sorrow.

While not as entertaining as the NFL, the XFL was not a complete failure as one might imagine. Fans from the eight teams towards the later weeks in the season began rallying around their home teams and even combined to form a large "beer-snake" that the league enjoyed.

It's sad to see an actually potentially successful secondary football league be destroyed ultimately by the pandemic. We're left wondering, what could have been.
