Re: Battlehawks to open upper deck!!

This story shows how much of a mistake it was to place seven of the eight XFL teams in NFL cities. The type of ticket demand in St. Louis could have been league-wide. You're assuming a) that attendance is the league's priority and b) that demand in St Louis would be just as high in league devoid of...

Re: Double Pass...WTF!!??

I think the double pass is a gimmick and a little goofy. They said the XFL was going to be gimmick-free this time, but this is an exception. I disagree the dbl forward pass is a "gimmick". A forward pass, behind the line of scrimmage, should never count as a forward pass until the ball passe the li...

Re: Doom and gloomers out in full force

1. Keep P.J. Walker at all costs
If an NFL team(s) wants Walker, why would he want to stay in the XFL?

Re: Game Thread: Seattle Dragons @ Houston Roughnecks Sat 7-Mar-20 2PM ET on ABC

At the end of the game, it seemed like they wanted to end it quickly before the start of the next game. I was picturing Vince McMahon talking in somebody's headset (like he does for WWE television shows). Another Montreal screw job! :D

Re: Screw them dude...

For me, it's the Wildcats. LA fans are notoriously fickle and I feel like Oakland or San Diego would have been a better fit. LA is huge and they get some of everything. I don't really like orange and they have the most generic name in the league. I find them easy to dislike and can't wait for my Re...

Re: Doom and gloomers out in full force

The first XFL lasted only one season, so a lot of people expect the same to automatically happen again. Add to that the AAF crash and burn, and it's no surprise that skeptics abound.

Re: XFL betting exceeds expectations and increasing

Part of it could be that the broadcasters keep talking about the line and the over/under.

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

Before my time, but the legend that was the Buffalo Braves long before San Diego lives on in western New York sports lore. The NBA in the 1970s was a wasteland. Not a lot of stars, players acting like rock bands with the cocaine use, and the NBA Finals on "same day coverage" tape delay late at night.
