  1. Jerseys for all 8 teams sold out within 24 hours of being posted, so there are a number of "Defenders" jerseys out there at the moment. https://xflnewshub.com/xfl-news/xfl-replica-jerseys-sell-out-within-hours/
  2. Vince has said player safety is a priority this time around. I am sure he wants to minimize any problems that arise from CTE-related injuries. "Overtaking" the Skins right now shouldn't be so hard. Snyder has run the team into the ground. Uniforms have been released.
  3. The lowest season ticket prices are $20, so its $100 for all 5 home games of the regular season. The NCAA tournament in March destroyed the original XFL in the ratings in 2001. They had a big drop off in ratings in March of 2001, and I am sure that is part of the reason.
  4. The new XFL footballs were released. They appear to be team specific and are packaged like Turkey's for the holiday.
  5. Agree with most of that. Production value of the broadcasts will be high. I don't think the logos are so bad. Some of the NFL logos are pretty bland, but they are revered because of their longevity. Imagine how Cleveland sports fans felt when they found out their football team was going to be called the "Browns." Completely agree. If you have never been to Audi Field, this is a good opportunity. It is a super nice stadium, and there are a lot of good restaurants and bars built up in the area now. This is the final team after the draft: Quarterbacks -- Tyree Jackson -- Cardale Jones Running backs -- Khalid Abdullah -- Donnel Pumphrey -- Jhurell Pressley -- John Thomas -- Ryan Yurachek Wide receivers -- Jamal Custis -- Rashard Davis -- Deion Holliman -- Levern Jacobs -- Terrence Lee-Alls -- Tre McBride -- Max McCaffrey -- Richard Mullaney -- DeAndre Thompkins -- Jaylen Smith -- Justin Thomas Tight ends -- Orson Charles -- Khari Lee -- Adrien Robinson -- Dimitrios Tsesmetzis Offensive linemen -- Cole Boozer T -- Chris Brown G -- Rishard Cook G -- Chase Farris G -- Randall Harris T -- Trae Moxley T -- Kyle Murphy T -- James O'Hagan C -- Ronald Patrick C -- Terrone Prescod G -- Jon Toth C -- Casey Tucker T -- Logan Tuley-Tillman T -- Toby Weathersby T -- De'Ondre Wesley T Defensive linemen -- Siupeli Anau DT -- Josh Augusta DT -- Daryle Banfield DT -- Tavaris Barnes DE -- Jake Ceresna DE -- KeShun Freeman DE -- Charles Harris DE -- Brian Khoury DE -- DuVonta Lampkin DT -- Sam Montgomery DE -- Elijah Qualls DT -- Kristjan Sokoli DT -- Tracy Sprinkle DT Linebackers -- Jonathan Celestin -- Koa Farmer -- Jordan Jones -- A.J. Tarpley -- Jameer Thurman -- James Vaughters -- Scooby Wright Defensive backs -- Elijah Campbell CB -- Reggie Cole CB -- Matt Elam S -- Doran Grant CB -- Ladarius Gunter CB -- Tyree Kinnel S -- Desmond Lawrence CB -- Carlos Merritt S -- Rahim Moore S -- Jalen Myrick CB -- Max Redfield S -- Tre Sullivan S -- Bradley Sylve CB Special teams -- Hunter Niswander P
  6. NFL scouting is not a perfect science and sometimes guys simply get squeezed out of the rankings either because of salary cap reasons or because they have been replaced by a draft pick. Sometimes teams are more inclined to keep a guy they picked in the draft over a veteran because they don't want to think they wasted that draft pick. The XFL can capitalize off of some of those players. But, there are also probably guys you have never heard of that will end up surprising you.
  7. We're defending against crackheads. The results of the first day of drafting are below. Cardale Jones was our allocated starting quarterback. Quarterbacks -- Tyree Jackson -- Cardale Jones Running backs -- Donnel Pumphrey -- Jhurell Pressley Wide receivers -- Rashard Davis -- Tre McBride -- Max McCaffrey -- DeAndre Thompkins Tight ends -- Orson Charles -- Khari Lee -- Adrien Robinson Offensive linemen -- Chris Brown G -- Rishard Cook G -- Chase Farris G -- Kyle Murphy T -- James O'Hagan C -- Jon Toth C -- Casey Tucker T -- Logan Tuley-Tillman T -- Toby Weathersby T -- De'Ondre Wesley T Defensive linemen -- Daryle Banfield DT -- KeShun Freeman DE -- Charles Harris DE -- Sam Montgomery DE -- Elijah Qualls DT -- Tracy Sprinkle DT Linebackers -- Jonathan Celestin -- Jameer Thurman -- James Vaughters -- Scooby Wright Defensive backs Special teams
  8. Team branding/names will be announced on Wednesday.
  9. Kurt Gouveia is the linebackers coach for XFL DC. https://xflnewshub.com/xfl-teams/redskins-kurt-gouveia-xfl-dc/?fbclid=IwAR3F6Xa4a0bjzuCbz47gVzq8e1fF6SCAwHo8e-_HU9WzuCygVZmGpFxRfrs
  10. No. They will be splitting the the officials into two groups of four, and the teams will alternate attempts. The XFL announced it's television deal and schedule today. They have contracts to put shows on two legacy networks and two cable networks. The networks will be paying for production costs and splitting the advertising revenue, so it looks like the XFL will be getting paid (unlike the AAF). https://www.facebook.com/xfl/videos/2289637214427708/ https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/59408854_430967347686718_776313247102926848_n.png?_nc_cat=111&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=246a8b87e194f7858e48656e28a17213&oe=5D765531
  11. I suspect even though all of their players will be ready, and on the field at the same time, they will still only be playing one at a time (the "shoot-out" alternating between the two teams will just be expedited by the fact that both teams area already out there). Team "A" will take five shots at one end zone, and then team "B" will take five shots at the other end zone until one team outscores the other on conversions.

    Vince McMahon wants to buy the app for the XFL. I can't see someone paying anywhere's near $70 million for an app though.
  13. Told you so. Markets like Birmingham, Memphis, Salt Lake City, etc. are **** markets that don't generate enough revenue to support a professional football team. They need revenue sharing from much bigger markets (like NYC, LA, and Chicago) in order to support the league. Other sports leagues have learned that lesson, so I was surprised that the AAF was ignoring it. The XFL may not have a chance either, but at least revenue potential in the markets they chose is very high. The AAF was definitely doomed from the start. They lost over $100 million.
