    I always thought the XFL team names were hilarious. The Memphis Maniax, the New York Hitmen. LOL.

    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.

    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.
