Re: Chad Johnson scheduled for tryout as a kicker

Can't be any worse than Lauren Silberman.

ESPN's CFP championship coverage gives insights into potential XFL telecast features

Tonight, of course, is the College Football Playoff National Championship, and this year, like every year, ESPN covers the game with a Megacast: multiple camera angles, broadcast teams and perspectives. One I noticed was new this year was the Refcast: the audio feed is mostly referee chit-chat and m...

Re: Article From The Athletic Gives Insight Into Ticket Sales

The thing is that New York's metro area is about 23 million... by far the biggest in the USA. They've always had respectable attendance for football (except when teams were forced to play on Randalls Island). The UFL got 10k for their game at Giants Stadium. The Hitmen were second in the old XFL. B...

Re: Article From The Athletic Gives Insight Into Ticket Sales

When Syracuse football is done with the Carrier Dome, the stadium goes immediately into basketball. That stadium is not lacking for dates. If you do Syracuse, you'd probably have to go to a peripheral stadium (which means outdoors, and lake-effect snow—ask the Salt Lake Stallions how that went). Yo...

Re: ST. LOUIS NAMES CHUCK LONG OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR

Most of us expected something like this to happen to at least one of the teams. That it's St. Louis is also likely no surprise. It's unfortunate the Battlehawks have the most unproven roster and coaching staff, because all the talk I've seen is that the city has embraced the XFL thus far and they de...

Re: The XFL’s remaining league announcements

I don't think they've announced any radio affiliates yet, which is kind of weird.

Re: Potential XFL Overtime scenarios

That’s a fun scenario Leo. The so called walk off offensive score or defensive stop should be very dramatic. Fans need to be ready for a walk off offensive score via penalty as well. With the rules for defensive penalties in OT, a second (or more) penalty such as an off sides, could win the game fo...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

I wrote an article today on the Guardians first week of camp on the main site. Guardians safety Demetrious Cox had some interesting quotes about the league rules. It came from an interview that he did with Peter Schwartz. This is from the article; They’re trying to have us play with one hand behind...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

The rules on the kickoff just look to be an absolute convoluted mess. Like they thought of every possible way that the kick return could be avoided, and they punished it. Touchbacks? Bring'em to the 35. Out of bounds? Add 15 yards to that. Squib kick? Insert a mandate that the kick goes to the 20, a...
