Re: The mainstream sports media coverage of the XFL

I would imagine that NY especially was a tough sell in 2001 with the Giants just coming off going to the Super Bowl and then the next week it's "what the hell? This guy even throw ten yards?" I remember Puleri as the QB at New Mexico State in 92 when they had a winning season for the first time in ...

Re: The mainstream sports media coverage of the XFL

The FS1 - First Things First with Oliver Luck is the first I saw in a while on main stream sport media. I expect more of that. And if the Nets are shying away from promo during NFL games due to NFL push back ... that stinks - and does that reach into NFL post and pregame? At any rate ESPN SC can pro...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

Some random nuggets from the media conference call. - All officials will be Division 1 referees, most from the Power 5. - They ditched the halo on punts just because it was too hard to get the players to adapt. - They haven't fully worked out if/how the broadcasters will listen in. Sounds like they...

Re: Potential XFL HC - Wade Phillips?

He should have no problem getting another NFL DC job. I agree, but does he really want an 11.5 month job in the NFL or a 6 month max job in the XFL. I brought up Wade not because he got let go, but because of his age. Are mid 70's former DC/OC/HC's a potential target for XFL due to the advantage of...

Re: XFL Rules revealed

I still can't for the life of me understand why the XFL is so hellbent on punishing good kicking. This would've made more sense if the kick were back at the 15 or 20 like they originally said it would... but any kicker with a decent leg is going to have half his distance erased under these rules. T...

Re: Article From The Athletic Gives Insight Into Ticket Sales

PFT picked this up too... https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/01/07/st-louis-showing-support-for-new-xfl-team/ >> The team has already sold 6,000 season tickets, most in the fledgling league, and they hope to sell out the Dome at America’s Center.

Potential XFL HC - Wade Phillips?

Yes we have 8 HC's now but that can change quick.... Wade is going to be 73yrs old this yr, but still wants to coach and has both DC and HC experience... Is this the target HC that fits into the short and sweet XFL season? https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/01/06/wade-phillips-not-ready-to-r...
