Re: XFL Rules revealed

Good to have the major rules put out there, and I really thought the animation that came with the announcements helped people (read: me) wrap their heads around some of the more colorful rules. I know most other rules are similar to the NFL, but I'm curious in particular about (a) the celebration r...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

If you declare an onside kick, is there a limit to how far downfield you're allowed to kick? I asked this earlier but it is a great question. I am going to predict that an unsuccessful onsides kick will be ruled the same as an illegal procedure and the ball will be placed at the 45yd line (although...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

If we don't have kickers that can do 55-yard kickoffs we got problems. That said, how often do you see a non-designed short kick? Take out Greg Joseph's last squib and every kickoff in Philadelphia and New England (the two points of reference for week 1 games in DC and the Meadowlands) went on aver...

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...
