Anyone going to watch?

Thoughts on the longevity?

I say 2 years max lol

I'm definitely going to watch.

Given the financial model of the league (one guy, who has lots of money and lots of stake in it, funding it), I think it will last.

I also think Oliver Luck will do a good job running the league.

I might give it a look to know how it's like, but I'll admit I'm a 100% or 0% guy, and I don't see myself investing too much time into second rank football.

Plus some of the [URL="https://www.xfl.com/rules"]"arcade" rules[/URL] really make no sense to me...
Reading them again my initial thought is I flat out hate it : the punt ones are absurd and take away one strategic aspect of the game, the kick off ones make little sense and the extra point ones belong on a smartphone game, not a football field ... oh and I just re-read the overtime ones, basically if the defense makes 2 consecutive penalties the offense automatically scores, how effin dumb is that ?

When I began writing it I didn't intend this post to be that much of a clear cut anti XFL rules rant... but then I read them again and I just can't.

I heard on sports talk radio that we have a really good team in DC. Cordale Jones as QB and a WR from the Steelers.. Eli rogers or something like that.

Checked out the roster, Simmie Cobbs at WR.

Okay, how many people did a double take when they read of a WR named DeAndre Thompkins?

Lol yeah ... I was like what the .. if the games had a Flint Tropics vibe to it with free corn dogs and roller skate jumps over cheerleaders .. like a party weird atmosphere .. I could get into it.

I'm going to the DC Defenders game tomorrow. Audi Field is spectacular. I think the league will get some viewers up until a certain point. It's going to take a beating when March Madness hits, as well as The Masters.

It's football. Therefore my brain will have no choice but to force me to watch.

Wish SD had a team. I'd go to a game or 2. I went to one in the last league that played and folded a year ago, it was fun.

This team is playing better football than any team in DC in the past 5 years.

[quote=Buffalo Bob;1244292]It is football, if they broadcast Pop Warner football I would watch it. To me nothing is "second rate" as long as it is competitive.[/quote]

The product on the field is actually quite competitive from what I'm seeing. I'd say better than what the AAF was.
I don't see what the arcade rules bring to it though.

I liked the game !! Problem is these leagues pop up and fold so itís going to be really hard to develop a real fan base ... Iíll bet they had as many fans in stand as some of redskkn fans at games ..

I'm adopting the TB Vipers as my favorite team. They have a couple Seminoles. Gonna record the game and watch it tonight.

DC Defenders all the way. Ainít gonna lie, I watched a lil and it was entertaining.

Seeing Zorn on the sideline...nice guy, but jeez heís still incompetent.

I was mildly interested, but didn't pay attention to what time the game was on (coworker told me it was today) so I was unpleasantly surprised to find out I missed the game yesterday. I'm gonna try to watch the week after next though.
