XFL game ball to be released Monday

The XFL released this video, stating Monday as the launch date for the football. Looking at the teasers they gave, it looks a lot like the one used in the XFL Careers video we saw earlier, but with white laces.

It should be. XFLShop at XFL.com finally has new hats. Some of these items need larger logos. The hats are pretty cool though. Hopefully the merchandise end expands as time goes on. Obviously jerseys soon.

For $125? I'd rather just buy some shirts and hats or a team jersey when they come out.
Playoffs are still in sight ;)

Absolutely second level!!!!

Guys learned from XFL 1.0. Ball color specific for each team, white/colored nose cones (will have a distinct “movement” when thrown, ie college ball), and grip technology! How soon till other leagues poach this? I WANT ONE!!!

Should we start ranking them?
Team 9 will use....?

This is AWESOME!!

Go Cats!!!

Two distinctive features make the XFL’s official football stand apart from any in sports. The XFL game ball comes in eight custom looks to match each team’s primary color scheme and is distinguished by the following:

The points of each football are wrapped with ‘X’ marks in white and the team’s primary color. This design allows receivers to track the ball easily.
Patent-pending, “X-Pebble” grip technology will help players control the ball with a feel that enables a tight spin on throws, and also allows ball carriers to enhance their ball security.
The XFL spent the past year developing the game ball with football manufacturer Team Issue in Dallas. The first version was tested with players on the field during the XFL’s rules testing this past spring.

I have to admit that’s much steeper than I thought it would be. I know it’s expensively made but they have to knock down that price.

The footballs are very cool. Love the idea that these were created with player performance in mind. The original XFL ball was more for style than substance. They were rushed out there and the balls had no grip and were awful for players to throw, catch and run with it.

Having game balls for each team is great.

The negative is the price. It’s extremely smart to brand 8 different footballs. Pricing them at $125 dollars is excessive.
