100% this rule is enshrined in the XFL charter. 100%.

It’s trading about 47% above one major firms target price.

Also carries a 75 p/e.

Stock is up just under 59% over last 3 months.

Too bad you can’t act on your idea. Might play out.

I'm OK with that, but that doesn't have anything to do with whether I watch it or not. The determining factor for me is changing how the game is played, having less rules, simpler rules, and eliminating or highly reducing the use of replay to almost nothing. Basically removing referees faces from the TV screen is my main issue. Along with having little or no stoppages. That's what I'd want out of a new football league. Sing the anthem twice with your hand over your heart and a tear in your eye, as long as you fix THE GAME.

Couple this with Dan's post about boycotting the NFL - like a good little propagandist absent since nov 2017 - and you have the making of a politically motivated industry that reflects WWE.

They will do everything the NFL isn't to appease them, and conservative websites with throw all their support behind McMahon and his new football league while decrying the NFL as a failed, anti-american league filled with a bunch of minority ingrates.

Vince McMahon's relationship with dumpster is known. Aside from starting a "feud" with him to create revenue, his wife donated $7M to elect donald, and we all know how he feels about the NFL. This is a targeted business to undermine the NFL. How long it lasts is irrelevant.

I’m not going to trash on the XFL. This is the league that resurrected the career of Tommy Maddox who used that notereity to get a spot on an NFL roster with the Steelers. Who then ended the reign of the Kordella Stewart experiment which directly led to the Steelers drafting Ben and winning two SBs. So indirectly you can thank Vince McMahon for finally getting one for the thumb.

But if they eliminate half the rules, don't throw flags and have no replay, I'll watch it just because of those factors. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I agree with that totally, Tommy was a wake up call to Cowher, that a true skilled passer matters.

We certainly have that to thank for getting Ben, all hail the XFL!!!

Hey...who knows, if the XFL rebirth is a hit, maybe the NFL owners will shitcan ole Rog and hire Vince McMahon as commish... 8-)
Shane-O as head of officiating, and Triple H can take Riveron’s gig in the NY replay booth.
Total fix. (As in repair)


(Or not :shock: )

This will fail not because of politics, but because football is on the downside.
