    They have a female replay official in the booth for NY-DC.

    I like being able to listen to them review the film, go through the process, and communicate with the official on the field.

    The biggest mistake was having only 5 practices before starting the season. They would be better off playing more option type QB's early on. The NFL barely has enough pro style QB's to start.

    The pass rush has been good, due to OL play being raw. Not surprised. So run until the passing game develops.

    Houston beats Tampa 34-27 in an entertaining game today. 2 straight games that former Bills WR Cam Phillips recorded 3 TD's.

    St Louis has a sold-out lower bowl for their game against NY in the dome.

    DC has looked pretty good (comparatively) the first two weeks, but LA is rolling them right now and the Defenders can't do anything right.

    I make sure every Houston game is on the DVR. They are a fun watch.

    Re: XFL Starting This Weekend

    Bad look for the league today in the early game.

    Houston QB clearly kneeled on 4th down where there was 2 seconds left on the clock, instead of giving possession for 1 play at the Roughneck 21 yard line the game is just over. Seattle was down by 9 so had a chance to tie the game.

    Instead of putting the 2 seconds back on the clock, they just said the game is over and nothing can be done.

    Not good for a league that's just starting.

    True. What I give the XFL credit for is, within hours, putting out a statement admitting to their screwup and saying that the officiating supervisor for that game would be reassigned.

    Good luck getting the NFL to respond as quickly.
