How’d this finish up? Wasn’t there suppose to be another game today also?
Per the XFL's Twitter feed as of five minutes ago, Dallas vs. St. Louis is in overtime (or just practicing the OT format anyway).

Re: Confirmed: Luis Perez traded for Charles Kanoff

You have to imagine with Johnson winning the starting job, Perez would've been a hot commodity on the trade market. I'm surprised the Wildcats didn't try to fill a need elsewhere on the team in trading Perez, rather getting only another backup QB in return.

Re: Chad Johnson scheduled for tryout as a kicker

I am just ok on the Team 9 idea. That's provided that Chad Johnson has a great tryout. I am pretty uptight when it comes to this kind of stuff. I don't like PFT Commenter or Chad Johnson getting a tryout. I understand that these guys initiated this and that the league is just trying to be good spor...

Re: XFL preseason games?

For broadcast purposes, it's important to do a "dry run" during these preseason games, especially if the networks are banking on technological innovations to help draw in viewers. That's not even to speak of the necessity of coaches/players/refs wanting some live game work to prep for the season and...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

Good to have the major rules put out there, and I really thought the animation that came with the announcements helped people (read: me) wrap their heads around some of the more colorful rules. I know most other rules are similar to the NFL, but I'm curious in particular about (a) the celebration ru...

He should have no problem getting another NFL DC job.

Re: NFL Practice Squad/Futures Contracts Tracker

How many of these futures contract players actually end up even making a preseason roster, though? Most of them? Sure, some of them will get cut when draft picks sign as teams have to maintain their 90-man roster throughout the offseason as well. But at the very least many of these guys will get th...

Re: NFL Practice Squad/Futures Contracts Tracker

Remember, no matter what level you're playing, it's EVERY football player's desire to get (back) to the NFL. If you have an opportunity to sign a deal and begin the offseason program with a team in the spring (even if you may not get paid 'til then) versus taking a chance on a brand-new league, poss...
