We Will Miss out on Some Great Football
QumarChicago - XFLBoard.com Enforcers Team
- (3 February 2001) -- As the XFL begins,
so does a new era in football.
XFL will provide some new entertainment
on a boring Saturday night primetime schedule.
On NBC, tomorrow, Saturday, February 3,
2001, the XFL will begin. And as the saying
goes, "Hell hath no fury, except the XFL".
will definitely be a big part of the XFL.
Now, on the inauguration day of this new
league, there will be 2 games. The headliner,
NY/NJ Hitmen vs. Las Vegas Outlaws, will
have all of America's eyes on NBC. BUT,
the other game, Chicago Enforcers vs. Orlando
Rage, will be taken out of the spotlight,
because of one little storyline. There is
now football in the Sin City.
say so what. Why should there be a preference
when it comes to picking a football game
to be aired on national television? It's
not right. People are going to miss out
on some better football. I don't really
like how the media is helping, or should
I say not helping, the Enforcers. NBC will
only show cut-ins of the Enforcers/Rage
game. That is not fair to any Enforcers
or Rage fan that wants to see the game in
its entirety. And, locally in Chicago, the
Enforcers flagship station, ESPN Radio 1000,
is pre-empting the game to air the Chicago
Bulls game on their airwaves. The rest of
the game can be heard on ESPN Radio Plus.
seems everywhere I turn, the XFL, or the
Chicago Enforcers are being shafted. They
are treating them as outcasts that are not
wanted. Now, don't take it that I am against
the Outlaws and Hitmen game, but it's not
fair just to have cut-ins. Show the Enforcers/Rage
game on regional coverage, like they do
with the NBA on NBC. All I have to say is,
enjoy how much time of the Rage and Enforcers
will ALL miss out on some great football.
