The XFL issued an apology for an officiating error that denied the Seattle Dragons an opportunity to tie the Houston Roughnecks at the end of Saturday's game.
With Houston leading by nine on its own 22-yard line, Roughnecks quarterback P.J. Walker took a knee on fourth down to end the game. However, the XFL said Walker's knee clearly touched the field with approximately two seconds remaining, meaning the ball should have been turned over to Seattle.

It wouldn't have made a difference. Seattle was getting killed late in the game on offense. They would have had to score on the play had they gotten the ball ... VERY unlikely ... AND then convert a three point conversion from the ten ... also very unlikely ... just to tie. Their players were ready to clear the field.

Lol.

That was the reason I posted the link ... XFL calling out a mistake & a demotion.

Accountability. Something we won't see in the NFL.

Hey, I think Jamie, and a bunch of our Houston bunch are tailgating a game in a couple weeks.

That might be the one I’m thinking about going to, if DC has the beer cup snake then the Houston fans need to come up with something too

Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

I would be shocked if the XFL doesn't cancel their season, as well. Seattle was already planning on playing their week six game in front of an empty stadium. This could be the death knell for the league. Too bad. It was a fun filler.
