As reported in today’s issue of the SportsBusiness Journal / SportsBusiness Daily, XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck recently assembled a committee to help develop the style of football for the new league, kicking off in early 2020.

The committee, which met in Charlotte, NC, July 23-24, included former NFL coaches Jim Caldwell and John Fox, former NFL, CFL and USFL quarterback Doug Flutie, sports tech innovator and a founder of the yellow first-down line Bill Squadron, and concussion expert Kevin Guskiewicz.

Among the numerous topics discussed, the committee looked at ways to minimize idle time and speed up the game, and increase meaningful action on the field, with fewer breaks and penalties.

Fan suggestions submitted via Facebook and other social channels helped guide several of the conversations and will continue to as we look to make the final decisions about the league’s style of play this fall.

Short video at the twitter link.

Five timing points listed: 20-25 second play clock, 12 minute quarters ??, split screen ads/ no commercial break, NO running clock-Bad idea!, and shorter quarter breaks.

(the ?? and Bad idea! remarks aren't my opinion but were listed on the board that way. Points 1,3, and 5 were circled)

I agree with all five points so far.

“It’s fun to figure out how we can make the game more exciting and faster paced and address some of those things that fans complain about,” said Luck, a former NFL quarterback, league executive and West Virginia athletic director who most recently served as an executive vice president at the NCAA. “Delays. The length of the game. The lack of rhythm. Fans complain about it and players and coaches do as well. We’re going to try to address those issues in a fairly systematic way.”
