I always thought the XFL team names were hilarious. The Memphis Maniax, the New York Hitmen. LOL.
How about players' names? He Hate Me is a classic.
The leagues #1 drafted player is currently the backup QB for Washington.
Josh Johnson of the San Diego Fleet
I'd love for it to become a viable option to the NFL. Are there games going to be quicker? If the NFL game gets any longer the new start times will be, 1, 5 and 9 on Sundays...
That's right. Rod "He hate me" Smart. LOL. The XFL had a sense of humor, that's for sure.
HE HATE ME 2.0 will be the new star.
Just wait on Dez using that gimmick as the #1 WR for the Dallas franchise.
One factor is based on scheduling (XFL winter / spring, CFL summer / fall) permitting players to play in both.
Could get interesting if this gets the green light. You'll essentially have a year-round development league, where players at minimum are earning ~300k for participating, maybe forcing the NFL bumping up practice squad and minimum salaries.
The key to the XFL would be having year-around football.
If they make the XFL for the NFL off-season, that'd be great.
I want to watch some football when there isn't any football.
If XFL does that, I'm in.
It would be cool if it was like a D-league. I've been to NBA and MLB d league games and they were fun. Most importantly cheap
That is their plan.. their season launches a week after the Super Bowl.
Though, I think a week after the draft may be better.
Wonder if small school guys will play in the XFL as a way to boost their draft stock.
XFL is testing a theory I think is quite interesting - changes the complete strategy and approach to the game -
Eliminate extra points by allowing teams to convert for 1 point from the 2 yard line, 2 points from the 5 yard line, or 3 points from the 15 yard line.
