  1. You can find gifs that make absolutely anyone look foolish (even if they're not really relevant to the subject matter).
  2. The DC Defenders have finalized their final 52-man roster: https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/news/xfl-rosters-2020-here-are-the-52-man-rosters-for-all-eight-teams/gdlifutwxnsv1x41iejvex9h1 D.C. Defenders roster No. Name Pos. Ht. Wt. College 1 Thompkins, DeAndre WR 5'11" 187 Penn State 2 Rausa, Ty K 5'9" 189 Boise Sta
  3. The first promotional commercial for the XFL aired during the NFL playoffs:
  4. I think you misunderstood the double-forward pass rule somewhat. The first pass can go forward, it just has to be behind the line of scrimmage. The purpose of this rule is to eliminate flags. In the NFL, two forward passes is illegal, so the ref has to make a judgement call about whether or not the first pass went lateral or went forward. The XFL's double pass rule makes the ref's job easier and makes gadget plays less risky for the offense. So, the main point of it is to reduce flags that stop the game and to increase offensive production. It's not a bad rule once you fully understand i
  5. For the most part, no. They are mostly designed to reduce flags and referee judgement calls, speed up the game, and make plays a little less dangerous for the players. The rules are definitely offense-friendly though and will probably lead to higher scoring games.
  6. Budgeting is important for a Spring start up league though. The USFL paid big money for "star players" and ended up about $300 million in the red. Cardale Jones is our quarterback, and he is probably the most talented quarterback in the league. Cardale will continue to build his own brand in the XFL.
  7. The idea is to minimize flags and delays and make the game safer for players.
  8. Update 1/7/19: XFL official rule changes have been announced. https://www.espn.com/espn/story/_/id/28438441/xfl-rule-changes-focus-faster-pace-more-excitement
  9. 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/
  10. 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.
  11. The lowest single 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.
  12. The new XFL footballs were released. They appear to be team specific and are packaged like Turkey's for the holiday.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
