XFL Gets Roasted After $55,000 Average 2020 Player Salary Revealed

When Vince McMahon announced the resurrection of the XFL, there was probably an a*sumption his players would clean up at least half as well as their NFL counterparts. After all, we know a lot more now about the toll pro football can take on players. With the job comes a ton of perks and a measure of fame, but it's damn dangerous, too.

Football players can suffer from life-altering ailments like CTE—chronic traumatic encephalopathy—and paying them the NFL minimum of nearly a half-million dollars a year isn't unreasonable at all. So it's understandable that when it was reported last week that XFL players will at a minimum make a measly $55,000 yearly salary, a good number of people lit up the XFL's Twitter mentions with criticism


NBC's Pro Football Talk first reported on the salary, which was revealed in a memo to players' agents:


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.

Pro Football Talk goes on to note that the NFL minimum is $495,000 a year, but that low XFL salary also comes with a lot of contractual freedom NFL players don't necessarily have

Plenty of social media users, verified and not, had a problem with this news




A sports journalist from Canada noted CFL players make more—in Canadian dollars, anyway




And others felt it might pretty much spell the XFL's (second) demise




There were some league defenders, though




It's hard to see how the "minor league" argument holds up, though it makes sense at first blush. For one thing, Vince McMahon has positioned the league as an NFL equivalent. Also, according to Payscale, the average minor league (AAA) baseball player earns nearly $85,000 a year—and they are playing a much less dangerous sport.

Yahoo! Sports reported Saturday that quarterbacks in the XFL will make a good deal more: "A source told Yahoo Sports that those players will earn more than the NFL rookie minimum - this year, that amount is $495,000."

The XFL begins drafting non-QB players this week. We'll find out then if making less money than many high school teachers is enough to lure real, young talent

Damn let them build some revenue? This generation is a*s backwards they realize that you gotta start somewhere right and for most of these dudes they just tryna showcase they can still play so maybe they can get back in the NFL.

Got roasted by who? 5 random a*s people you searched for on twitter?


I'm sure the players that are getting drafted to these XFL teams will know how much their salaries are and don't have a problem with it.


It's not like anyone is forcing them to play

People without a brain, and critical thinking skills can’t see the reasoning behind this. Once revenue increases so will the salaries. The league is giving itself some legs to stand on while they build a brand

Those bum a*s QBs are EMPLOYED. Major difference in being employed and not having to settle for XFL/CFL, and not being employed and having to settle for what you can get. If you care that is about football still.

Imagine Peterman kneeled during the anthem and the roles were reversed. What do you think would have happened if Peterman continued to be a distraction.
