The XFL is in the midst at its third attempt at staying alive. The Spring football league is actually pretty entertaining to watch, if you can get over the lower quality of play.

But, controversy has already struck the league, as news broke on Friday that Orlando Guardians quarterback Quenten Dormady had allegedly leaked plays to an opposing team.

Here are more details, courtesy of an earlier BroBible article.

Ambush Sports Network reported that Dormady allegedly shared his playbook with an opposing team. The report states that the team then investigated the incident prior to Dormady’s release.

The report is not-yet confirmed. But Dormady has since gone private on Instagram and disabled all comments. If true, it would be a shocking hit to the upstart league.

It’s also just the latest in a number of embarrassing incidents for the Orlando Guardians.

Head coach Terrell Buckley threw the entire team under the bus recently. While third-string quarterback Deondre Francois was heard cursing out his teammates in a huddle.

But, now, Dormady has been reinstated to the XFL, according to new reports.

Here are some more details, courtesy of the post.

The XFL’s Orlando Guardians have an impostor on their hands.

Quarterback Quenten Dormady was investigated for giving out plays from the team’s playbook to other teams, according to multiple reports.

He was then cut from the team on Friday as a result.

Later Friday, though, Dormady was reinstated.

The XFL’s vice president of communications, Jeff Altstadter, released a statement announcing the reversal due to a recent development.

“The league is actively reviewing a personnel issue regarding a player on the Orlando Guardians who was released from the team yesterday afternoon,” the statement read.

“Additional information on the situation was brought to the attention of the league overnight, and the league has reinstated the player while it conducts a formal investigation into the issue. The situation is under review, and we will share more details regarding the findings as appropriate.”

Well, I guess all press is good press.
