XFL!!!

Let's go TB Vipers!

I've been a huge fan of that squad for like 30 years now. Can't wait for the new season!!!

Haha, not that I really care, but minor league football is better than no football...and probably better than that amateur hour known as the NCAA.

I'm currently watching the end of the LA v Houston game.

I know I'm making a dumb joke about liking a random team but I am enjoying watching this game.

It's normal football with a touch of arena league in how they speed it up with the quicker play clock. I also like the kickoff setup and the extra points.

I'll watch the next game and probably again next week. Like I said, some football is better than no football.

I may try to watch this. I looked up the rules and seems to be interesting changes.

This is a good article about week 1.


I'm enjoying this new league.

I am enjoying week 2 of the XFL. I think It's safe to say I'm an XFL fan now.

And I'm rooting for Dallas in this game!?!?!?!?!?! That's certainly a change from how I feel about real football.

My Vipers suck. I guess I'm going to pick them as my team since they are the closest to me. And their logo kinda looks like a vagina, that makes me giggle.

Wow, the end of this game is really cool!

They have both coaches on screen and the game in the middle of the screen and the coaches are on mic so you can hear what each side of the ball is calling.

So far I've mostly been rooting for the team with the coolest uniforms, but like you I struggle with rooting for a Dallas team. Houston is the closest team to where I'm at.

I am cheering for the team that closely resembles my NFL choices. Seattle is my choice so far. My son like Tampa Bay for the name "Vipers".

Caught the first week, thought it was interesting. I like the kickoff format better than the NFL. No real rooting interest since Denver doesn't have a team (yet?) but I'll catch a few games. A little looser atmosphere, and best of all no Roger Goddell.

I read in Sports Illustrated that the XFL ratings were down 35% from week 1 to week 2. They expected a big dip but that was more than they were hoping. We'll see if it levels off in week 3.

I didn't get to watch any games yesterday due to work but I'm watching the NY v STL game now and enjoying it. They have quite the crowd.

I'm an XFL fan. I look forward to the games.

Finally some excitement on the weird XFL kickoffs:


Once guys start getting used to this new setup I expect way more big plays than we see in the NFL kickoffs.

Oh wow, the STL kicker just hit a 58 yarder!

That ain't no minor league shit right there. That kid is earning himself a spot in the big boy league come training camp.
