Re: Xfl

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.

Re: Xfl

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 "arcade" rules 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.

Re: Xfl

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?

Re: Xfl

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.

Re: Xfl

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.

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.

Re: Xfl

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 ..

Re: Xfl

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

Re: Xfl

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.
