Re: Jerseys to be revealed Tuesday 12/3

Seems I learned during the logo reveal that my tastes don't necessarily line up with the majority. So keep that in mind as I give my thoughts :) I thought the jerseys and helmets were largely a hit. Nit-picks here and there, but I thought the schemes and helmets not only were distinct among the othe...

Re: XFL.com posts minicamp rosters for all 8 teams

I'm going to try to edit this post as I go through the mini-camp rosters. See my post on the Renegades above. "In" represents those not drafted in either draft but on the minicamp roster; "Out" are those drafted in one of the drafts but NOT on the minicamp roster (and not otherwise on an NFL team). ...

Re: Jerseys to be revealed Tuesday 12/3

On a side note and somewhat related. Between the XFL football and the uniforms. The league has embraced the “This is The XFL” mantra as their main hashtag and marketing line for these latest two releases. I can’t see those 4 words together without hearing Vince McMahon’s voice. I wonder if the leag...

Re: What are the Dragons going to do at kicker in minicamp?

I wonder if they may not feel the need to have a kicker until training camp. They could get one in the January supplemental draft if that's their theory.

Re: XFL game ball to be released Monday

I'll echo most of the sentiments here:

1) The balls look awesome and I like the idea of each team using its own logoed ball on offense and

The fact that they're reportedly still negotiating for an on-field uniform supplier doesn't give me a lot of confidence they'll have a jersey reveal prior to Black Friday.

Re: XFL Supplemental Draft - 22 Nov 2019

One positive here is that there were a lot of talented, NFL-caliber players selected in the Supplemental Draft. Most if not all of those selected would've accepted the invite AFTER the contract controversy with the confusion over the apparently low downside guarantee. So it appears that didn't scare...
