Ok Andibald.....the XFL champion will have at least four losses.
I'm guessing now, that the XFL champion will not have played at least 60 minutes in every game this season.
It's gettin' hot in here...and we about to burn 'em up!

Looks like the 2020 XFL champion may be 2-3 seconds short of playing a full season :?

That narrows it down to 2 teams at this point.

FB is blowing up and not just Dragons fans; this is a major black mark for the XFL. The attitude that it's over becasue we can't get the players and officials back is horrible.

If the Dragons could've had that play with :02 left.....maybe get a TD and a 3? We were denied a miracle finish.

Yes, not much chance we'd have pulled it off but it was doable. The XFL officials just made the league lokk BUSH LEAGUE - very sad. The explanation at the broadcast by the official made it look even worse. Olive r Luck and Blandino have some explaining to do!

Why they wouldn’t add the 2 seconds and pull everyone back onto the field idk. I get it, a mistake was made, but it would’ve been easy rectifying that mistake.

Yeah, they just didn't want to bother. The explanation boiled down to "uhhh, I dunno, we thought the game was over. Oh well."

They compounded the mistake, which was easily fixable, by not really admitting it, fixing it, and then blowing it off on live TV! Disappointing to say the least. Wonder what would have happened if it had been Houston instead of Seattle? Any difference?

Fortunately it didnt impact the spread bets. Seattle covered and its was Over the u/o bet already.

But it might generate some buzz for the league. People love a controversy
