Re: The ball

The XFL tweeted two photos of the balls today, and made the point they were testing them. Since the balls have different texture, they must be testing the feel of the different materials. Since they have put graphics on the balls, they must be testing that as well. Keep in mind, fan reaction is like...

Re: Summer Showcase dates released

I understand the "Summer Showcase" is by invitation only. Has anyone heard how a player gets invited?

#RIP Alliance of American Football

My first thought goes to the folks from Birmingham AL, who have lost so many teams over the years, including the Birmingham Thunderbolts of the original XFL. Why do so many teams come and go from such a football mecca. Hopefully, one day it will work out for Birmingham. The fans of San Antonio must ...

If Dundon folds the AAF, just wait for the AAF fans to somehow place the blame on the XFL. :P

Re: Testing the Play Clock in the Spring League

It is nice to see the XFL sharing these details with the fans. It further demonstrates they are serious about the football this time around.

Re: What the XFL can learn from the AAF?

There is even an article written by an XFLBOARD person that suggested the league call the championship the Million Dollar Game, and then a few weeks later they changed the name. :o That was the Masked Prognosticator, an anonymous user who posted a prediction each week, and wagering tips based on Ve...
