2020 has been crazy to say the least. We’ve seen the XFL come, go and may possibly see it return all in the same year. During the resurgence of the XFL, St. Louis built up quite the fan-base. The BattleHawks were set to sell upwards of 50,000 tickets in its week 7 match against the Los Angeles Wildcats before the league was forced to suspend the season due to COVID-19.
The BattleHawks may be gone (for now), but the base is still making noise. Earlier this week, Fox Sports Midwest ran a poll on Twitter to decide the all-time best St. Louis football jersey. The candidates were the 95-99 Rams, 79-87 Cardinals, The Stallions (Proposed Team) and the BattleHawks.
Football Poll 1: Which of these four jerseys do you like best?
It’s not much, but it’s something. This shows the BattleHawks fans have not disappeared and want their football back… again…. Clearly, this is not nearly as awesome of an achievement as if the team would have made it to the XFL Championship, which they looked in good position in the East. With all the news coming out lately, if the XFL does return it seems that a return to St. Louis is a safe bet.
