Re: The final four XFL Head Coach/GM openings

I would expect that the last four picks for Head Coaches would all have years of coaching experience, especially in St. Louis. As I said in another thread, if I am the XFL, I would not hire Isaac Bruce as head coach, but instead as President of the St. Louis XFL team. As President of St. Louis XFL h...

Re: How far outside the box is the XFL willing to go?

This article says that letting the fans call the plays in the XFL will be a stupid idea:

Except for Stoops, Trestman, Zorn and Hamilton called plays in the NFL and I don't think all three of them would give up play calling to the fans.

Re: How far outside the box is the XFL willing to go?

I just finished the episode of Spring Forward, the Spring League's podcast, with Doug Whaley. At the end, Whaley makes a reference to letting fans be involved in the play calling. Coupled with Luck's reference to letting the fans call a play from a few months back, I think it's time to start to wor...

LA does not name their coach/GM but their team President:

Re: XFL's momentum is waning

I'd have chosen Oakland. Oh..... and when's the last time Oliver visited Seattle in February? He said something about spring like weather....... truth is......it's been brutal. We had record snows. And that's happening more often than not. And this city ain't Buffalo. It's not prepared for that. Th...

Re: Week 6 Produces AAF’s Worst Attendance Numbers

I want San Diego to do well so that they can tell Spanos to shove it every time they do.

Re: Week 6 Produces AAF’s Worst Attendance Numbers

Orlando having to practice in Georgia is brutal. Surely not helping local interest. I only caught the Sunday games, but those attendance look about 5K too high to me, which has been the standard all season. Totally agree that Atlanta benefits from a smaller stadium; such a shame the AAF went for su...

Re: BigPlay.com Podcast with Oliver Luck tonight

Bruce would be a terrible choice, IMO. We talk all the time about the XFL needs to focus on the XFL and not define itself by its relationship with the NFL. Hiring someone whose primary qualification is that he's a former Ram runs completely counter to that. If the XFL can't kill it in St. Louis wit...

Speaking of waning, any update on the Freedom Football League?
The league lost any little credibility they had left when they named one of their teams after a 70's funk band....The Ohio Players.
