N/S Your take on the XFL

I personally believe that this may be the one that lasts and builds. It'd be amazing if in 10-15 years the XFL is really challenging the NFL(hopefully there is a New Orleans team in the future). I think they are doing a lot of positive things. A lot better start than the inferior AAF. Even if the XFL doesn't blow up quite as big as I'd hope, I'm at the very least hoping that it forces the NFL to have to really adapt to keep its market share.

They only have 8 teams now, they will grow. It is important for them to grow, as someone needs to put some pressure on the NFL(or overtake the NFL). The NFL has been trending towards **** for years. Someone needs to force them to re-evaluate themselves. Just look at the XFL's ingenious kickoff rule. The NFL was wanting to get rid of the kickoff all together for player safety. The XFL did something that is fun, exciting, and a heck of a lot more safe. Hopefully they will get a New Orleans team ,but it is still early in their development.

Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

Took my son on yesterday (Global Life Park/Arlington) ... only 20 minute drive from Bedford.

Tickets (seatgeek), parking & food all affordable. Rules are a little different but it was fun. Bob Stoops / Renegades take an L but I'll definitely attend another. Is it NFL level? .. no but entertaining.

If they are in your town, it's worth checking out.

I watched one of the games on TV at the rugby bar Saturday. I didn't watch closely but at least there was football on and Roger Godhell wasn't involved. That's a win in my book.

Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

Thought they did a lot of things well and it was entertaining to watch.

Liked..
Kickoffs
New extra point system after TDs
Player/Coach interviews on the sideline during the game

Could do without..
Coach play calls being broadcast live.

Re: N/S Your take on the XFL

Watched some highlights on Youtube and it didn't look half bad IMO.

I might watch a whole game this weekend to take in the whole experience.

Any competition for the NFL is good in my books, I just hope they can make it last...

Perhaps you have that backwards?

No Interest... = No New Orleans Team
