Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

Here's an interesting thought that the XFL could do for the PAT. Install the rugby laws for kicks. If you score in the center of the end zone then you kick directly in front of the posts. If you score on the side line then you come back from the spot of the score and kick at that difficult angle. It's why rugby players center the ball if possible.

Here is what beach rugby does for scoring. If you score in the center third of the field it's worth five points with no conversion kick after scoring. If you score on the outside two thirds then you get three points for scoring the try. The reasoning is if we were kicking you would likely make the kick from center field but not so much from the edge.

Or use The Rules from Star Trek TOS Fizzbin!!

Players: Four. Well, you can play with more, but it gets stagnant real quick.

Setup: Six cards are dealt out to all players, except to the dealer and the player on his left, who get seven. The second cards of the dealer and the player on the left are turned face up.

Turns: The player on the dealer's left gets the first turn, and then play proceeds counter-clockwise around the table. There is one discard pile for each player (placed in front of the player). To play, you may draw from any one of the four discard piles, or you may draw from the stack of remaining cards.

If the card you draw is a king or a two, you may draw again, unless it is night, in which case the rule applies for a queen or a four only.

If you draw a queen or a four during the day (or a king or a two at night), you must discard it to your pile.

After you have drawn your card(s) and you have discarded the queen or four or king or two (if necessary), you must discard another card to any one of the four piles.

If you drew from the stack, you may discard that card. If you drew from a discard pile, you must keep that card (though you can discard it on your next turn if you wish).

Play continues until the stack is exhausted. At that time, the cards of all players are revealed and compared by the following scale:

Royal Fizzbin:

The best hand. It consists of a king and a two (or a queen and a four at night), and any two pairs of aces, jacks, or sevens.

Full Fizzbin:

Second best. It is a king and a two (or a queen and a four at night), and any one pair of aces, jacks, or sevens.

Three-Quarters Fizzbin:

Next best. It is a three, five, six, eight, nine and ten, all red, except at night when they must be all black.

Half Fizzbin:

Lowest hand that can win. Consists of any pair of sevens, jacks or aces.

Shronk:

The worst hand of all. It is three or four of a kind. Automatically loses, no matter what anybody else has.

After the hands are compared, the winner gets to be dealer and the loser has to exchange places with the person on the winner's left (winner doesn't have to move!) thus becoming the dealer's left player. If no winner or loser, players stay where they are. The cards are then reshuffled and dealt again.

Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

Roughnecks go to 3-0! Their games have been the only three to cover the Vegas over number. My older son, the coach in New Orleans, and his best friend, the weekend anchor for FOX 8, both bought into Houston when the league was first formed. Part of the reason was because they thought Joe Horn's son was on the roster, but he was traded right before the season started. But still, Houston is a sister city to New Orleans and we are all in.

Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

I like the rules - faster clock, no PAT - not sure about the kickoff rule yet but interesting. I like the behind the scene reporting. The QB's are the most glaring weakness on each team.

Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

Bump ...

Took the daughter and son to this one (Roughnecks/Renegades) out in Arlington on yesterday. My son is an avid soccer player & doesn't watch a ton of football however he was quick to point out how bad the Dallas QB play was. Landry Jones (see my comments #46) .... whew ! He's a walking pick 6. Really, really tough to watch him. I know Houston has a nice defense but still ....

3 int's, fumble then a injury. I know he's Stoops guy (OU) but we desperately need another QB.

Good game though and the weather was nice.

BTW, PJ Walker needs to get a legit look at the NFL. He can play.
