That's the right attitude. I mean, it's not like they're winning Week 1 either way.
And so it begins... :D

The latter would seem to be that test game we were talking about a few weeks back.

Re: XFL Rules revealed

Punting strategy will be interesting. Based on what we know so far, here are some predictions. I think teams might have to incorporate a "quick kick" style of punt in order to gain more territory on the kick. With the rules eliminating the gunners, setting up in a "going for it" type of formation s...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

I think that guy is confused/wrong. When they say replay can correct certain rulings "at any point in the game," they mean they can stop the game at any point (that is, not just under the 5:00 mark) to make the correction, not that they can make retroactive changes. I agree and hope you are correct...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

Anyone hear anything remotely similar to this? https://youtu.be/4o4rTdDrEls?t=1470 It sounds like he is saying that the replay official can retroactively disallow a score or change a ruling from much earlier in the game?

Re: XFL Rules revealed

It looks like another clock winding penalty occurred last night. I hope the XFL has a solution for it. The game clock should only run for a max of 25 seconds (after spotting the ball) before the play is run. Well, I just had lunch with Dean Blandino. Well, I had lunch while listening to his "Good C...

Re: Los Angeles Wildcats trade Rashad Ross to DC for Tre McBride

I can't find a clip now but I remember months ago Luck saying one of the benefits of league wide training camp was being able to see how all the teams stacked up, talent-wise, at different positions, and how if could help the league achieve competitive balance.

Re: XFL Rules revealed

This link has specific parts of the podcast linked for easy access to what you want to listen to. https://www.xfl.com/en-US/this-is-the-xfl-show-podcast Blandino also said he expects 165-170 plays per game. I think that might be a bit high for an average but could reach that total if plays are run ...
