Re: Jonathan Hayes to be named XFL St. Louis Head Coach/GM?

That is my main issue with this hire. 4 of the 5 coaches currently all have been offensive coordinators or head coaches in the NFL therefore they have called plays. Hayes has been a Tight Ends coach during his entire time as an NFL coach and not once has he coordinated an entire offense. I get that...

Re: Jonathan Hayes to be named XFL St. Louis Head Coach/GM?

The issue is that St. Louis is the market that needs the most buzz from the XFL. This would not be a buzz hire. Does it, though? It seems St. Louis has the largest fan base on social media right now. Of all the 8 teams they seem most willing to embrace the XFL regardless. Probably because they hope...

Re: Jonathan Hayes to be named XFL St. Louis Head Coach/GM?

They want candidates that are 100 percent all in. I'm not a St. Louis fan, but as long as Hayes meets this qualification I'm fine with the hire. Some coordination experience would be nice but 15 years as an NFL assistant isn't nothing. I agree about hiring some ex-Rams, though. As I said the other ...

Re: Kevin Gilbride To Coach XFL NY

I just watched the press conference. I think the XFL is doing a great job in general, so I hate coming across so negative. But they really need a communications person to go over some broad bullet points with these coaches before they take the mic. - No jokes about how you're only coaching again be...

Re: Kevin Gilbride To Coach XFL NY

I'm not expecting any big splashes from this point on but hopefully they'll be a little better than this. At this point I'll put my money on Jim Mora Jr. for LA, which I'd be perfectly content with. I agree. The original XFL had only 1 head coach with NFL head coaching experience. That was Ron Meye...

Re: Kevin Gilbride To Coach XFL NY

Figured it would be something like this. Underwhelming but respectable enough. At least he should help keep the league offensive-minded. Not to get ahead of ourselves but I think at this point it's going to be the 2nd generation of head coaches when we'll see more of the Pep Hamilton types (good res...

Re: Team marching bands and other ideas

https://xflnewshub.com/xfl-rules/wwe-survey-xfl-rules/ Are apparently being discussed as things fans would like to see in the XFL? What do you think? Mentioned on reddit, I think marching bands is a great idea, depending on where they come from. If nothing else it will help the stadium sound louder...

Re: Future XFL markets/expansion

One thing to remember about the Demons is Pac Ball Park (later AT&T Park, now Oracle Park) was brand new and considered one of the crown jewel stadiums in the nation when it first opened. That played no small part in the Demons leading the XFL attendance. Everyone in the Bay Area wanted to simply se...
