- (7 February 2001) --
Bolt's press conference Bolt's head coach Gerry DiNardo
had he's weekly press conference Tuesday.
asked about the NY/NJ Hitmen and their style of football
he said "They are a lot like Memphis in that they run
a two back offense. They are big and physical. We will
have to move and use our speed to our advantage."
asked about the XFL events going on during the game
being a distraction DiNardo said "No. It was more of
a distraction during the scrimmages in Orlando. There
were more things happening and the "coach-cam" was more
of a distraction during the scrimmage."
DiNardo was also asked about injuries. "There were no
serious injuries in the game. Some guys have bumps and
bruises but we should be at full strength."
the negative press that the XFL is getting DiNardo said
"XFL is just a football game. It's professional football.
If you don't want your kids watching it then don't let
them but it's just a game. If you want to fix what's
wrong with athletics, start with college. There are
players that have no chance of graduating playing at
the college level. Let's fix that first."
