Re: XFL Player Salaries

I hope that the league grows. That will in turn mean that the salaries grow.

Any updates on ticket sales?

I went to Ticketmaster.com to look at seating availability. I am probably reading this wrong but it looks like the XFL teams are close to selling out all their lower bowl seating. Even the Guardians which I expect to be the smallest crowd this week looks like they have only 700 tickets left for sale...

Re: PFT: Will football fans embrace the XFL?

I’ll watch preseason football over the playoffs of any other sport.. so I may not be included in this survey/opinion From a talent perspective. An NFL preseason game and the XFL will be very similar. The difference though is that there is nothing at stake in an NFL preseason game. Players are playi...

Re: PFT: Will football fans embrace the XFL?

The mid week fall football schedule has been tried and it failed. You are battling against the interest of football fans who are already invested in the NFL and college season. Their interest is already elsewhere. Plus not easy getting networks to give you prime time weekly spots during the fall. It...

Re: Great article on the TV innovations for XFL games

Mike brings up (as usual) another interesting point that I hadn't thought of. Whether you are into gambling, fantasy football, stats or whatever; the networks i.e. ABC are now free to do many things that the NFL would never allow. Think about that for a moment - the network(s) have been unfettered ...

Re: One week from right now

The best thing is that the XFL didn’t pay for any of these ads. This was all network driven.

Re: Season Predictions

I like Dallas over Tampa in the championship game. I think STL and LA will make the playoffs. MVP: Landry Jones I think a team will make the playoffs at 5 and 5 or maybe even 4-6. I like Kikaha as defensive MVP if he stays healthy. I am going out on a limb but I think that Jordan Ta’amu will win off...

Re: XFL Offensive Style

The Super Bowl was such a great showcase for the sport. Air Raid QB, old school power running (a fullback scored a touchdown!), Mills concept on the would-be play of the game, a single wing look. Diversity in styles makes for a richer product. I hope Paul Johnson and Steve Spurrier are on the short...

Re: XFL APP

Saw it on Mike Mitchell’s twitter feed and then downloaded it immediately. Put XFL Football in the search engine rather than just XFL. The rosters are a work in progress. No pictures or player bios. The rosters are outdated. Players like Tommy Bohanon still listed on New York. Obviously no depth cha...
