Because it would be complicated if they went with one set of rules. It's like if the CFL were forced to go with NFL rules, it would get complicated.
I'm asking why it's important that there only be one league for each code. Beyond keeping things neat and tidy for the OCD amongst us.

At most there should be two leagues, one arena and one indoor due to the different rules.
Why?

It's semi pro sports. I feel like it's sort of like being mad at water for being wet.

I'm not following how a fractured landscape makes the sport a disgrace.

Websites and press releases are cheap. Wait until the shovel is in the ground, so to speak, before getting worked up about this, Freedom, Pac Pro, etc.

Re: XFL games will feature premium sideline seating

What would make T-Mobile Park more convenient?

I hadn't heard the Mariners blocked an NBA return. That's pretty messed up.

Re: Another Tier 1 QB Signed

Man, I hope not. I know he looked good in the AAF, but signing AAF guys to the Tier 1 contracts completely undermines the narrative of the XFL raising the bar for talent. EDIT: I have not seen that anywhere else and I'd take most of the information peddled by these types of sites with a big grain of...

Re: Order of QB Invitations Sent

It's a good question. It would make sense that the first wave represents the higher level of interest, but it could also be because of something completely unrelated. I can only speak for myself, but I don't have enough information to want to read anything into it.

Re: Kickoff penalty

I'm reading this as starting on the kicking team's 45, so it's a 15 yard difference from the NFL. Agreed, that's how I interpret it as well. "There will be a severe penalty for us kicking the ball out of bounds or kicking the ball into the end zone," Gilbride said. "So there's going to be more play...
