Re: XFL Rules revealed

I just watched the Chalk Talk video re the announced rule changes. I think they confused a few people, based on some comments, and I don't think they all understood the KO rule. However, their talk re the KO did bring up another question for me. If they use a traditional onsides kick (only when ann...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

I think that it would give too much of an advantage to the team going last...knowing what they had to do to win. I think they wanted to avoid that. Oh good point. Is that a statistical advantage or just a psychological one? This is also a good point re the NFL OT. The stats may show that the team w...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

What would have made overtime even more interesting is to let the coaches decide whether they want to go for 1, 2, or 3 on each try. You can still play five "innings" and then move on to extras. I wonder if they considered that. I think that it would give too much of an advantage to the team going ...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

Yeah, I think the league did a great job with the process, to be honest. They put forth their ideas early but really did take in feedback and adjusted. I'd like to think some of the concerns we raised here were taken into consideration -- it sure looks like it, based on some of the tweaks -- but ma...
