Re: CFL 2019 Season

I appreciate that it's different. Makes it fun in a way that the AAF, for example, was lacking. But yeah, two and outs are rough. The AAF lacked any innovation. Besides eliminating the kickoff, not allowing more than five rushers and using 2001 XFL camera angles. I liked their onside conversion ide...

Re: Potential NFL Quarterbacks that The XFL will target after September cuts

What do you guys think about Luis Perez? I like him. I think that he could be a Tier-One player along with Brandon Silvers, Ryan Mallet, Johnny Manziel and Landry Jones. I watched a lot of AAF games and I disagree. He had five TD passes in eight games. A whole lot of passing yards though. And his r...

Re: XFL Summer Showcase Contract Candidates

Given the amount of AAF guys at the showcase (many of whom were starters), I'm curious to know what the criteria is to be an AAF guy that Luck and the XFL has enough tape on, so to speak. Guys like Will Hill, Johnathon Massaquoi, Jhurrell Pressley, Reggie Northrop all started I believe all 8 of the...

Re: XFL Summer Showcase Contract Candidates

[*] 7 down, 1 to go. The final XFL Summer Showcase takes place on 7/13 in Missouri. XFL CEO Oliver Luck has gone on record stating that the league plans to sign anywhere between 250 to 300 players from these showcases. It could end up being more. With Tampa's huge turnout of invites, the league is o...

Re: XFL Summer Showcase Contract Candidates

Agreed. They'll likely have access to all the AAF's players plus the players they can recruit with their higher salaries and just generally more professional setup, PLUS potentially any underclassmen they can recruit. For all their issues, what the AAF accomplished was not presenting garbage footba...

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

In my opinion, this is a good thing. Nothing wrong with the kneel down, but this will be more exciting, I think.

I decided to tweak my St. Louis Stallions (XFL) uniform & helmet design concept, and offer another helmet option. I think the crimson helmet works well, too. :)
I like it a lot. Personally I still prefer the Explorers because of the Lewis and Clark ties though.

Re: XFL to have tier-one quarterbacks allocated and not a part of the draft process?

How can XFL decide who is tier 1 until after all NFL teams have set their final 53 man rosters? I don't think we will know who has been deemed tier 1 until right before the XFL draft. On the process itself, I can't see any way they don't at least ATTEMPT to match QB's with teams they have some kind...

Re: Who calls the games?

A couple AAF commentators (like MJD) were pretty good. I'd like to see MJD definitely. Charles Davis would be solid too.

Re: Final Team Names Prediction List

Maybe the best time would be the day after the baseball all star game.......theres a two day gap where there's very little if any sports going on before mlb resumes play on that Friday. That's in mid July. You'd have the media all to yourself. NFL starts training camp two weeks later. Isn't the NBA...
