Re: Rule Changes: What Do You Think?

I actually like the punt rule here. i like the penalty for going out of bounds. i am not a big fan of the live ball rule though as that creates an almost unfair situation for the receiver in some cases. But overall, i like the rule. I still think it is the time of play that is the main issue and not...

Re: Rule Changes: What Do You Think?

No Punts? So you propose a team having to go for it on 4th down inside there own 5 yard line? Punting is a part of the game that is present to keep play fair and even. removing punts risks early blow outs on a few bad or lucky bounces or penalties (there still will be penalties) against a team. Punt...

Re: XFL Daily Links Thread

Tebow would be one of the faces of the league. A lot has changed since 2001. For one thing, the media has made a lot of coaches and players household names that would not have been back then, even nfl guys. I think guys like Rex Ryan and other personality type are guys who can be the face of the lea...

Re: Ep 1 The XFL Awakens

No team outside of the top 50 tv markets, which you can google, will get a team. Places like Omaha may sound nice, but just do not have the people needed. I think Texas will get a team. likely between San Antonio or Austin. Rank Metropolitan Market Regions / Areas. they will need to disperse themsel...

Re: What are the factors when choosing locations?

If anybody here thinks that they will select any city outside of the top 40-50 even at expansion, you can go to bed now. They need to sell Broadcast Rights as there primary source of income. Saturation is a joke. the reason for the game being played when they are is because they will have a virtual ...

Re: Fan base will come from XFL cities

People who walk away are self defeating people. Those are people that really do not believe in the XFL. if the league does well they can expand in as little as 3 years and start adding markets. Walking away just makes it harder to get to that point. This is a fledgling league and needs some type of ...

Re: XFL Player Salaries

I think there will be a range and bonus will still be given for winning. I think most salaries should be at or just above Canadian levels so you can really draw in the top Canadian league players as well as the 2nd and third string type NFL players. i would expect very limited 1st string NFL guys co...

Re: NFL headed for lockout in 2021?

they XFL is very aware of it and this is one of the reasons for a 2020 start. It is not a matter of competing directly with the NFL, but they know that there will be a lot of players out there that may want to play and get paid without sitting on the sidelines. they know 2020 can establish their pro...

Re: Fan base will come from XFL cities

they are taking their time. Keep in mind, they are really trying to plant a seed. the want it to grow and expand. they do not want these to the 8 teams forever, just the first 8 teams of more. If people just get into the mindset of not supporting because there is no team, it is a problem as that is ...
