Re: Fox Business Talks XFL

I'm not convinced that kicking from the 15yd line (may be old info) is still the plan. Not even positive if the preset alignment will be used but is sounds like it will. If the new formation is used, potential bad winter weather may make that kick difficult and put extra stress on the kicker. I'm a...

Re: XFL Uniform/Helmet Rankings

Not a bad post at all. The XFL is AEW more so than ROH. Except that the XFL has bigger and better exposure with Disney and Fox. Like AEW. The XFL has a billionaire owner. The XFL is already spending tens of millions of dollars just on insurance premiums alone in year one. Vince McMahon will have sp...

Re: XFL Uniform/Helmet Rankings

That's pretty incredible that Jennifer Lopez is hosting, wearing the same dress she did in 2001, and they take a potshot at the XFL. I mean, it has to be a coincidence, but it's much more fun to think that she and/or Lorne are carrying a 20-year grudge. I think it's for the best that they are keepi...

Re: XFL Uniform/Helmet Rankings

If I may do a little comparison......in wrestling....a promotion like ROH has continually scoured the Indies to find it's talent....they watch them develop.....then go off and make $$$ in WWE. And a good many of Vince's current stars have ROH credentials. But ROH is not a feeder ....that's just the...

Re: XFL Uniform/Helmet Rankings

The issue though is that many of those college players will see the XFL as a developmental league for them and that's not the XFL's goal. If THEY view the XFL as a developmental league for themselves, that's fine. Young, "virgin" college talent seeing the XFL as a viable step in their professional ...

Re: Another win in retrospect?

To me, the future of the XFL isn't the uniforms or the rules or the players or coaches. It's ratings and attendance. 2.0 TV ratings and 20,000 to 25,000 weekly attendance should be the goal for the XFL this year. Those aren't NFL numbers, but they are more than enough to ensure a second season. ......

Re: XFL Uniform/Helmet Rankings

Kenny Robinson is in the XFL so he can get a head start on his NFL career. Unless he tanks really badly during the XFL season, he will be in the NFL at this time next year. So from his standpoint, the XFL is a developmental league for him. Credit to Robinson for taking a chance on the XFL. He is a ...

Re: Another win in retrospect?

If so, it's kind of a small victory. ABC has always had only a small, nominal package of college basketball games. ESPN is their bread-and-butter for that. ABC afternoons is usually infomercials and burnoffs on weekends outside college football season. CBS does college basketball more, while NBC is ...

Re: Fox Business Talks XFL

Very unclear what that ref discretion business is. I am all for fewer penalties. I will have to see what that entails. This is a bit scary for me. I wouldn't want to see my star player on the bench for a near penalty during a key moment in the game. If people think the game is rigged now...just wai...

Re: Fox Business Talks XFL

The kickoff formation has been talked about from the beginning. If they're kicking from the 15 then I have to imagine they're sticking with it. I'm gonna throw an idea out there that everyone will hate, but I think it would be best given the overtime format: a point system for standings, rather tha...
