Re: Keeping the dream alive for all football players

Good article. I know I've heard Oliver Luck speak these sentiments before, that there is much more football talent than there are spots in the NFL. The NFL won't ever see the XFL as a "developmental" league, but I'm sure they will offer contracts to XFL players who show they are ready for the big sh...

Re: New York Head Coach and President - Tuesday April 16

St. Louis should already have a Head Coach in place. Hopefully they get this done in the next week or so, just so they can catch up to the other teams that have coaching staff in place.

Same goes for Houston and Los Angeles.

Re: Dundon: Decision on future of AAF could come tomorrow

This is a sticky situation. Clearly Dundon isn't happy with his investment. It leads me to believe he didn't know what he was spending his money on.

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

Seattle Grunge in honor of the Seattle bands Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.

I thought the XFL was beginning to speed things up? Maybe this is just a glitch?
