Re: Question about the XFL’s branding department

I hope that Tank55 is correct in it likely being outsourced. I think an objective 3rd party is just what is needed in this reboot situation. The XFL needs to distance itself from its previous version and COMPLETELY disassociate itself from the WWE.The new XFL must stand (or fall) on its own merits o...

Re: Should the XFL use the WWE to promote their league?

I agree 100% with Greg on this; the risk/benefit of cross promotion between the XFL and WWE weighs far too heavy on the risk side. There should be plenty enough hype (of the good sort) on the networks showing the actual games to suffice.

Re: More Negativity about XFL St. Louis

Great point Mike, the XFL will make the preseason much more interesting but in my opinion, so will the training camps. I know I will be watching the Seahawk camp very closely to see who might becoming available and throughout the preseason as well.

Re: Predicting XFL Team Names Announcement Next Week and Why

By the way, why do you think that the starting QB for XFL Seattle will be a cast off from the Hawks? The QB could be coming from anywhere - literally! It could be a NFL castoff, or a college QB who went undrafted etc. etc. Heck, I suppose it's even possible it could be a former HS or JC QB (not like...

Re: XFL Show posts Mock XFL TV Schedule

They need to begin rolling out the hardware soon, such as names, logos, and uniforms to get the enthusiasm beginning to roll. If they know what a team's "stuff" is, it's time to announce it, even if not all at one time.

Re: POLL: XFL Seattle Name

To me, only the Surge name has any even loose connection to Seattle. I don't buy into Wild, Force or Fury. That said, I still don't mind Dragons though it too, has no Seattle connection. If these are indeed the potential team names, they are pretty lame compared to those offered up here on xflboard....

Re: The XFL looking to eliminate the kneel down with new clock rule

I love two ideas in this thread - delay of game = aotomatic loss of down and any thing dropped or missed behind the LOS is live.
