NFL Europe ceased operation in 2007.
For me, it’s hard to watch football that isn’t College or NFL so I don’t really see myself getting into the XFL.
I watched more XFL games this weekend than I watched NFL games during the entire 2019 NFL season. I simply do not like the NFL any longer. The rules for kickoffs in the XFL are a lot better than the NFL. I like the elimination of coaches' challenges and the reduction of timeouts. Lots of dropped passes in the first games which might improve as the season continues.
HE HATE ME was kind of a two edged sword. The use of nicknames was entertaining and let's face it, pro sports is all about entertainment. On the other hand it was seen as unprofessional and pro sports has to have at least the aura of professionalism to be seen as credible. One of many reasons the first XFL failed. It was kinda of ghetto.
Here's are some trivia questions that you are sure to hear one day?
What team won the first XFL 2020 game?
A. DC Defenders
Who was their quarterback?
A. Cardale Jones (out of Ohio State)
Is anyone watching this week? I've got the Dallas-L.A. game on, it's actually picked up in the fourth. I don't know if I like the sideline interviews or not though.
I watched that game too. Not too impressed. Stoops had one of the best college coaching jobs in the country and now he is coaching the XFL. Go figure?
Wasn’t he one of the very few XFL 1.0 players to get to the NFL?
Torrold DeShaun "Rod" Smart (born January 9, 1977) is a former professional American football running back. He played college football for Western Kentucky. He was originally signed by the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League (NFL) as an undrafted free agent after the 2000 NFL Draft.
Smart first played a professional football season with the Las Vegas Outlaws of the short-lived XFL, where he was known by the nickname "He Hate Me". He then joined the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League (CFL) before signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, all within the same year (2001). He then spent four seasons (2002–2005) with the Carolina Panthers, including winning the NFC Championship in 2003. He also spent time with the Oakland Raiders in 2006, as well as Team Tennessee of the never-launched All American Football League.
Went to the Seattle game on Saturday. It was a lot of fun. Had seats practically right at the side line for $40. Lots of Seattle legends there. Steve Largent, Walter Jones. Even Chris Peterson, the now former coach of UW was there. Somebody had a He Hate Me jersey on. They said 30,000 + people there. Not bad for a start up league.
Wondered how this was going. I watched about 5 minutes of a game yesterday. No, I probably won't be tuning in again. Kinda like watching minor league baseball. Its fun at the ballpark, but who really cares which team wins.
Throw a ball, catch a ball, throw a ball, catch a ball.........
Sorry, I just can't sit through that for very long.
I haven't had the chance to see a game. I want to. I've got an open mind about it.
I never watched a NFL game but I have vaguely watched two XFL games
I watched most of the Houston vs.
St. Louis game. It was pretty good.
I like it and watch most of the games. I root for the St Louis team of course.
XFL will be successful because they’re embracing the sports betting aspect. They show the odds and O/U during the game. It will be fine until March Madness fires up cause the money will shift.
I watched a couple games this weekend. Not too bad if you don't have anything else to do.
It is certainly B team quality....sort of like watching minor league baseball.
I noticed quite a few LA Rams at the LA game. Apparently even the NFL pros are interested.
