XFL Anybody?

This is a discussion on XFL Anybody? within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; I clicked this thread guessing the XFL was "X" rated like porn (which I also don't watch) , apparently not. Happily oblivious to sports....

    Happily oblivious to sports.
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    I agree. Soo much better than kicking an extra point, imo.

    I also like how you can hear them all talking to each other. Pretty interesting, I think.

    As a Browns fan and with the recent he said/he said going on, I think the NFL will begin leaving the mics on. At least for their own review.

    Good call...One mans stupid just might be enjoyable entertainment to another.

    Yeah - I like the instant replay too...a camera in the booth with the replay official and you can hear him and the on field ref discussing the play.

    If nothing else comes out of the XFL maybe the NFL will steal some of their ideas.

    If it keeps me from having to listen to network announcers try to impress listeners with their opinions on how the review will be ruled--and then usually being wrong--I'm all for it.

    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    Yepper, 6A and 5A football is my limit. College football was great until a few years ago, and they began acting like NFLTHUGS,

    Nope, no religious "sports" programming for me, unfortunately I have Directv which has thousands of "sports" channels that I have to pay for and have no desire to watch.

    Just as long as the guy with one foot in bounds stood for the anthem.
    I say you stand.. 1 foot is a reception....You kneel and 2 feet are required for a reception.
