The XFL starts this weekend, what is your interest level?
It's been stragetically placed in the sports dead spot.I thought i went well. Fits in between the NFL and when baseball starts. I enjoyed some of the new rules and the play will get better as this really is the equivelent of even EARLIER than a first preseason NFL game.
Ill likely be watching every week and with the short season it should fit well while the weather is still bad.
The first week tends to get more play because it's new and different. Let's see what happens in a month. Also, a twist, the XFL does not have the same requirements as the NFL, could you see the XFL allowing college freshmen to come into the NFL?? I potentially see this as a "minor league" of the NFL. There is going to continue to be a push for college kids to get paid, and some will jump for a little money in the XFL, then develop their game in a year or two and be ready for the NFL. The NBA does it with G-leaguers.Well duh.
QB play will get better and with ESPN and Fox really backing it, and them taking their time to get it ramped up I think the NFL will embrace it moving fwd.
