    It's good to have Football to watch, the quality of the play is fine, especially for the 1st games of the season.
    They seem to have picked stadiums that they can more or less fill (nothing kills atmosphere like 18,00 fans in an 80,000 seat stadium).
    Some interesting new wrinkles to the rules, I'm gonna reserve judgement on them till I've watched a few more games.
    I'm a fan.

    The dumbest career move I ever made was leaving a good job to go be the lead designer on the XFL game. We were all excited to be the Madden killer! Then the first real games aired and we were like uh oh. That job went the way of "he hate me" and the original league. Hopefully, this new one does better.

    The XFL actually looked like professionals most of the time.
    Last year's group seemed like a bunch of guys scared to be real for fear of their ownership.
    There was some real hitting going on, and in some cases they looked more like football players than some of the prima donnas in the NFL.
    Their blocking schemes needed work- but so does the NFL teams.
    Pretty good start if they can keep building on it.

    I actually enjoyed the games today and it seemed like people went to the games....I like the kickoffs and point after options. Officiating needs some work but the NFL has never gotten it right either.. I am having trouble picking who to root for, there is a team in DC where I live and they are not the Redskins and there is a team in Dallas. Think I will watch for a bit to see what I like. Pretty impressed with the Houston team. They'd probably give the lower rung NFL teams issues. LOL

    The AFL was terrible, and the Version 1 of XFL was little more than a joke. This actually looks like compelling football. It's not gimmicky like arena but also has speed of play and some pretty good wrinkles. Not to mention the referees letting them play instead of calling any hit on the QB.

    From that era of goofy and obscure classics I prefer The Three Ninjas, Homeward Bound, and Look Who's Talking.

    I'll pay more attention tomorrow when one of the kids I coached in hs plays for st louis. Should be fun. Did like the kick off rules and extra points.

    I was pleasantly surprised. Entertaining and competitive. I'll watch again.

    Best part was the look on my wife's face when she found me watching football and I told her about this great new league I would be able to watch every weekend for the next three months.

    I've never seen those or that Grumpy Old Man one either. There's probably a long list of comedies that I haven't seen. I do see some comedies but the premise of the movie has to be something that catches my eye.
