Paul Dawson should be able to play in this league.. maybe these are the guys that get added to team 9 once XFL expands rosters around week 5-6
Dawson was actually at the XFL Summer Showcases this past year, but did not receive a draft invite.

Re: Birmingham wants an XFL team

I didn't want to start yet another expansion thread, so I'll piggyback off this one to link to a Q&A The Sporting News did with Oliver Luck: https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/news/xfl-oliver-luck-tv-ratings-quarterback-expansion/iakpqrw7orlv1r3suhwprqaj6 In it, Luck addresses the possibility of ex...

Re: Notes from Oliver Luck speaking to NFL agents at Combine

has there been any discussion about future drafts being just straight drafts or will they continue to do the same kind of positional draft like they used this season? I can't imagine they've gotten that deep into the weeds yet. It may depend on how many players they'll need to replace on rosters ne...

Notes from Oliver Luck speaking to NFL agents at Combine

Another good article about the league on The Athletic, going behind-the-scenes of a recent Fox broadcast of a game.

Re: Week 3 TV ratings and Predictions

For all the consternation about ratings, here's a reminder of what Sports Business Journal had predicted for the league before the season: "The XFL Sees A Second Season XFL ratings will be big enough that the league will have a second season. I’m confident it also will have a third season, but that’...

Re: How bad is "too bad" in LA?

The fact they only dropped 2,000 from opening day, for an 0-2 team, doesn't seem too bad to me. The number they started with is probably more of a problem for most than the lack of significant drop. I know there are a lot of people who want to move LA already, but that's a really quick way to get pe...

Re: Do you guys like the constant NFL references during XFL Games?

I'm fine with it. Giving players' pro backgrounds familiarizes them with the audience and shows that these aren't guys just picked up off the street; many of them are talented enough to play in the NFL (and have played there), but circumstances, injury or otherwise, have found them on the outside lo...
