It's been almost a year since Vince McMahon announced the return of the XFL, and the first eight-team cities are expected to be announced on Dec. 5.
According to the website Domain Name Wire , Detroit is one of 21 cities to have been registered with XFL related domain names. The report says "Yesterday the league registered a bunch of domain names for possible cities. The domains take the format of CityXFL.com, XFLCity.com and XFLCityAbbreviation.com."
This doesn't mean that Detroit will get a franchise, but it does appear as if our city is in the running.
