Re: XFL Official Rule Book Coming Next Week, What Can Fans Expect

I believe that the XFL's proposed kickoff, is the best compromise they could come up with between retaining the excitement of kickoff returns and player safety. It's not ideal but on the other hand, we're never going back to the old days. Sometimes compromise sucks but I understand this and though I...

Re: Fox Business Talks XFL

Andibald that is an excellent point that I, personally, hadn't thought about. With consistency in officiating being one of my top priorities, the OT scenario you mentioned is potentially disturbing. I don't know how you can get around that unless, officials are cross trained as it were. Again, in th...

Re: Fox Business Talks XFL

LeoNY your point is valid. That said, it is not impossible to properly train the Sky Judges in the XFL rules and the importance in getting it right whether that is reversing a call or leaving it as called on the field. I would assume (and hope) that they have already been doing this. The potential t...

Re: Fox Business Talks XFL

I have to say that I am estatic about the Sky Judge position being implemented! No more long drawn out delays, no more calls to NY, 25 seconds to evaluate and decide - that's awesome. This is one concept that I fully expect the NFL to adopt in time. I applaud the XFL's effort of combining accuracy o...

Re: XFL Uniform/Helmet Rankings

Maybe in Robinson's case it is a developmental type league; for most other guys though, it will serve more as a showcase league. For many players it will show that they have what it takes to play professional ball and then again for others, that they still have what it takes to play at that level. I...

Re: Fox Business Talks XFL

Less penalties in the rulebook and those that remain should be consistently and strictly enforced.

Re: XFL Uniform/Helmet Rankings

As I have said before, I doubt that anything is cast in concrete, more like Jello rules-wise. I am certain that the League will be listening to the coaches, players, sportcasters, sports reporters ,and yes even the fans regarding how the rules are going over. Some will work, some likely wont and oth...
