Thread: It's the XFL! Who's with me!?

    It's the XFL! Who's with me!?

    All the games this week are televised too!!

    Sat 2/8 2:00 PM EST (ABC) - Seattle Dragons at DC Defenders
    Sat 2/8 5:00 PM EST (FOX) - Los Angeles Wildcats at Houston Roughnecks


    Sun 2/9 2:00 PM EST (FOX) - Tampa Bay Vipers at New York Guardians
    Sun 2/9 5:00 PM EST (ESPN) - St. Louis BattleHawks at Dallas Renegades

    https://www.xfl.com/en-US

    No doubt in my mind the Renegades will take the title. DC isn't even a state so I don't know why they get a team. They are better than the Dragons. Great idea, lets put a team where it's cold and wet.

    Put a W by these teams names
    DC Defenders
    Houston Roughnecks
    Tampa Bay Vipers
    Dallas Renegades

    The rule changes should make it interesting.

    I'd maybe watch if I had TV or a team nearby. The NFL could definitely use some competition.

    The kickoff rule in a nutshell.

    Reasoning - Reduce touchbacks by both teams and reduce big collusions while bringing back the return.

    The kicker kicks from his own 30-yard line and must kick the ball in the air and in play between the opponent’s 20-yard line and the goal line. If it's short, it is an illegal procedure penalty and the ball comes out to the kicking team’s 45 yard line. (So a 50 yard kickoff, in the air, no squibs, is all that's needed.) If the ball is kicked into the end zone on the fly it comes out to the 35-yard line. If it bounces in it comes out to the 15-yard line.

    The players for each team will line up on the receiving teams 35 and 30. 5 Yards apart. Each team must have 3 players outside of each hash mark. That leaves 4 in the middle for the kicking team as the kicker is back. It also leaves 4 players in the middle for the receiving team. And 1 returner who goes anywhere behind the 30

    Players can move when the ball is touched by the returner or 3 seconds after the ball touches the ground (when the official waves his hand down).

    I was hoping vegas would get a team again so I could help pick the cheerleaders . At least cowboys fans have a hope for a win now .

    I thought that was an 80's thing.

    The timing of bringing it back is pretty right, and I hope they have much better success this time.

    I still won't watch because football is sooper ghey, but anything that stands a chance of putting the NFL in its place is worth some well wishes.
    There are no crimes against people.
    There are only crimes against the state.
    And the state will never, ever choose to hold accountable its agents, because a thing can not commit a crime against itself.

    I would watch STL play, but if it is on ESPN, no thanks.

    I cut the cord on cable a decade ago.

    I won't pay.

    NY defeats Tampa 23 - 3 with dominate defense in front of few fans . Dallas offense looks very lackluster, St Louis leading them 12 - 9 in the 4th .

  21. #18
    The four losing teams , dallas , seattle , Tampa and LA do not look like they can compete for a championship . The four winning teams seem to have different strengths , NY and St Louis defense and the other two , Houston & DC offense and special teams .

    Saw a couple of the games in passing. Guess I’ll have to pull for the Guardians, since they have a Raiders quarterback.

    Now that Landry Jones is healthy the Dallas team will take front and center stage. He was named after Cowboy great Tom Landry so he's got that going for him.
