  • XFL throws WWF for loss

     STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) -- World Wrestling Federation Entertainment Inc.'s disastrous XFL venture forced a fourth-quarter loss of $20.4 million and cut full-year profits in 2001 to about a third of the previous year's earnings.
     WWF, which took an after-tax charge of $36.2 million on the football league's failure, reported a loss of $20.4 million, or 28 cents per share, for the quarter ended April 30.

    XFL's short rise, rapid fall

    By HOWARD FENDRICH -- Associated Press
     NEW YORK -- Perhaps the most stunning aspect of the XFL's demise was its swiftness.
     Just 15 months ago, Vince McMahon stood before a throng at the WWF's theme restaurant in Times Square to unveil his latest can't-miss brainchild: a football league to, in his words, "take you places where the NFL is afraid to go."

    XFL gig over for Barker

    By PERRY LEFKO -- Toronto Sun
     Talk about two extremes. Only a month after co-ordinating the offence of the Los Angeles Xtreme, winners of the XFL's first and last championship game, former Argos head coach Jim Barker is looking for a job.
     Barker became a casualty when the XFL ceased operations on Thursday after failing to secure a regional cable deal with UPN.

    Fun while it lasted

    By JIM TAYLOR -- Calgary Sun
     Two newspapers have collapsed under me, although some people were kind enough to say that neither was entirely my fault.
     The Vancouver Times lasted one year. I worked 16-hour shifts, caught my daughter's mumps, lost 17 lb. in 14 days, almost died, and crawled back to Victoria sick, broke and disillusioned.

    Plug pulled on XFL

    By PERRY LEFKO -- Toronto Sun
     The football league that everyone loved to hate has been sacked. The XFL ended business yesterday after only one ignominious season, amid losses of $35 million US.
     "We just couldn't make it work from a financial standpoint," World Wrestling Federation Entertainment chairman Vince McMahon said.

    Joke's on smug Vince

    By ERIC FRANCIS -- Calgary Sun
    Minutes after the XFL made its debut in front of a packed Vegas stadium and a healthy TV audience, Vince 'He Hate Me' McMahon sat gloating in a packed press tent.
    Wearing the smug look of a man who felt he had just proven every XFL critic in North America wrong, he may as well have answered every single question by simply raising his middle finger.

     LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Right up until the end, J.K. McKay believed the XFL had a promising future.
     Then just like that, it was gone.
