Re: XFL Draft Day 2 Live Thread

It may be onerous to simulcast all 30 rounds of picks. That is the reason for not doing it.

Unfortunately, they did not say this was the deal going in to the draft. People's expectations were that the entire draft would be simulcast. I don't blame people for a negative reaction.

I don't see them posting a 30 round list at once. It has to be round by round at the worst?
We will soon find out!

No more streaming today.
The open draft will be on XFL.com
I wonder if XFL.com will have live-results, or if they will post a list when it is over. I certainly hope it is live results.

PS. This is weak. The live-cast was great.

Re: Notable players that went undrafted today in day one of The XFL Draft

That 30 round open draft tomorrow is just as big as three rounds that occurred today. More time for these players to get onboard.

Today, NFL experience won the day, it seems.

Re: XFL Draft Live Thread

After day 1 is over 240 players were drafted. (80 x 3 rounds) Not including the Quarterbacks, of course.

By my calculation, 51 of the players drafted today were not in last week's release of "Draft Eligible" players.

It seems like the draft list changed just that much between last week and now.

Re: XFL Draft Live Thread

So far, 13 of 56 picks were players not on the original draft eligible list.

Re: XFL coaches meeting in Houston this weekend to personally recruit NFL cuts

We should be hearing about more draft invites and definitely more player signings in the next week or so. The XFL will be looking to lock-in some of the marquee players with contracts right away.

Re: CFL and XFL merger

Can't really play "spring" football in Canada, because it is still winter in most Canadian cities at least until the end of March.

Trust me, "frostbite" would be a type of injury if you tried it. :D
