Good job James. Saw Verboys on the NY roster posted by Mitchell in the Guardians forum earlier today

Wow, so many new signings and we haven’t even hit January. I wonder if the league still plans another supplemental draft?

Pretty tumultuous times for players.
Fan of the XFL from the beginning. You may remember me from the original XFLboard.

Barring some surprises with certain current NFL practice squad players. I think there’s a chance that there is no additional supplemental draft. Based on all these recent moves. It’s like every roster has added 10 or so players. I remember Greg Parks and Mitchell talking on XFL Xtra about players being cut during minicamp and after and it seemed crazy at the time but it looks like 50 plus players were released since starting off on XFL rosters.

Great job James.

Here's where the rosters stand count wise after the latest moves.

XFL East
New York Guardians- 70
Tampa Bay Vipers- 70
DC Defenders- 70
St. Louis BattleHawks- 66

XFL West
Dallas Renegades- 70
Los Angeles Wildcats- 69
Seattle Dragons- 67
Houston Roughnecks- 66

This is not counting the individual team exempt/reserve lists. The BattleHawks have 21 players that either went to the NFL or didn't show up. Not counting anyone like Quinton Patton, who was released.

New York has 15. Tampa (14), DC (16), Dallas (15), Houston (14), LA (11), and Seattle (11).

That's 117 players in total that were drafted since October, that either signed on with NFL teams or didn't show up. That's not counting any players that were released since minicamp started and ended. The likes of Oakman, Spicer etc

WOW. 117 players is a lot of players that never took the field for XFL teams. The first question to ask an Oliver Luck or anyone associated with the league is what is the roster max for these teams during training camp in Houston. If it’s 70. A few of these teams have some more spots to fill.

They made some ninja-edits to the roster pages.

Some of the new additions are now missing.
Whether they prematurely announced their additions or they have already been waived, I don't know.

BattleHawks Gone:
  • Daniel Braverman, WR, Western Michigan
  • Sean Hickey, OG, Syracuse
  • Charles Tuaau, DT, Texas A&M-Commerce
  • Brandon Watson, OT, Mid-American Nazerne
Roughnecks
  • Marcus McDade, QB, Sacramento State
  • Steve McShane, RB, Western Illinois
  • Toby Weathersby, OT, Louisiana State
  • Devonte Williams, CB, Texas A&M-Kingsville

That's interesting James.

This kind of stuff is what I would chalk up to startup league hiccups. Hopefully at some point. The league does a better job with their roster transparency.

They need to also be on top of injury reports during game week. Those are direct tie-ins to the success and interest of fantasy football and gambling. We can't get to February and not know who is injured, who is not practicing etc That's where transparency comes in and if you are not sound there. You can hurt the overall product.
