Re: Rule Changes: What Do You Think?

Punting is a part of the game I don't know if they could forgo. I'm just not sure what punting brings to the game.

Re: Ep 1 The XFL Awakens

It's difficult to re-imagine too much as most fans have a certain way of playing football ingrained in them. Here are some ideas base on shorter, quicker games, 40 player roster, safer, and si...
