What Does This All Mean
The trademark was submitted by Christopher M. Verdini. The same person who submitted the five XFL Seattle team names. It looks like the XFL is getting into the football news business. Having a football news site related to more than just XFL news. Maybe they are building their own sports network? Maybe this is where fans could vote on XFL team names? We are not quite sure where they are going with this.
For those thinking of buying the domain name profootballadvisoryboard.com. A quick WHOIs search reveals it is taken.
