    Re: XFL Starting This Weekend

    Cardale is just too much fun to watch.

    I have trouble watching the games, I suppose I'm more old school football than I thought, the rules bore me, my attention drifts.

    No Trent 2.9 yards per carry Richardson. Scandalous.

    I had less fun watching than I did the AAF. Not saying the game is worse, it just doesn't catch my attention.
    I lost a bet with Pink and all I got was this dumb avatar that I've had awhile anyway.

    Did you notice me giving the CFL some love in an earlier post?

    If you go into it not expecting to see NFL/CFL/PowerConf football you might enjoy it a little more.

    Today's game is more clunky than the game yesterday.

    Still been some nice plays but not quite as entertaining.

    I think one of these teams dropped the ball by not having their backfield end up being Nate Pete and T-Rich.

    They would have dominated and been the start of an XFL dynasty.

    Re: XFL Starting This Weekend

    I've been to Div 2 games in college and Mid-American games. it's probably on level with those.

    Comparing it to the NFL is retarded. It's still better than golf, bowling, basketball and all the meaningless crap currently on my TV, including todays Sabres game.

    Minor league football. I get it. If you don't like it, so be it. Understood.

    With ABC and FOX showing the games, how financially needy are they ? AAF couldn't pay their players.

    This seems to be far more stable but we will see.

    This shouldn't look like Division 2 football.

    There's guys in this league that played in the NFL, albeit briefly. There's guy who went to Power 12 college schools.

    This should be on par with Division 1 football.

    I didn’t catch all of any game, but I saw parts of a couple. It’s on par with D3 at the moment with the amount of broken coverages and defensive lapses. It will take these guys time to gel, but it’s start looks very similar to the AAF with a few more splashy plays.

    I’ll probably tune in randomly when there is nothing else on and I have time, but it’s far from anything I’ll try and plan around.
    COMING SOON...

    There's actually a college player on one of the teams (I don't know which one, I just know he was mentioned) who's trying to up his draft stock. Kind of interesting, really.

    It will be interesting to see if showcasing himself in the XFL will raise his draft stock. Not a bad idea, as long as he doesn't get hurt. If it works, I wonder how many more will go that route. Hey, make some money in the process, too.

    Spectrum is such a $#!++¥ company. Wish other ISPs would move in and make them either right their ship, or go out of business.
