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

Pretty much agree with the consensus here. These guys are currently not household names so mentioning if they were drafted or in camp with an NFL team gives a degree of credibility. The AAF’s announcers (I remember the team of MJD and Marvin Lewis being the most egregious) flaw was that all these gu...

Re: PFT: Will football fans embrace the XFL?

You would think someone as seemingly pro player as Florio is would embrace another venue for players to make money playing the game - even from a selfish perspective, interest in the XFL could drive more Web traffic to his site in the lean months of the offseason (it is Pro Football Talk, not NFL Ta...

Re: Any updates on ticket sales?

Not sure if this is representative of the way all teams are handling it, but at least for Tampa Bay (planning to go there to see them vs. Renegades in March) it looks like they're not putting up a pretty good section of the midfield seating, unless you're buying the full season ticket plan. Will be ...

Re: All the XFL cuts

Surprised to see Northrup cut for the Vipers. McKeever was also called out by xfl.com as a top performer in the scrimmage this week but guess it wasn't enough. Wilkins they just traded 2 guys for this week as well. I'd imagine TB will put in a waiver claim or two, after cuts they still have 8 WR on ...

Re: Final rosters to be announced Monday, Jan. 27 at 12pm EST

I'm not sure we'll get to know this since we're just going to be presented with the final rosters, but I'd be curious to know the "order," for waivers if multiple teams attempt to claim the same player. It'd seem the most equitable to relate it to the order they drafted within that position group, b...

Re: Confirmed: Luis Perez traded for Charles Kanoff

I’d tend to agree - you figure Perez would at least mean McGloin (assuming he’s the starter) is on a pretty short leash when the season starts, whereas I can’t imagine Kanoff is any threat to Johnson. You would think they could’ve gotten more for Perez - we’ve seen teams trade different positions an...

Re: Talent Comparison XFL 1.0 vs AAF vs XFL 2.0

I think Mike essentially got it on the head on a lot of his points. I think the AAF talent wise was likely better than XFL v1, and the new XFL is bumping up the level of talent with what they are willing to pay QBs. I also think with the new rules and the prep time and camps which allow for more acc...
