I can't wait. Gimme the cheerleaders (local strippers) in the locker-rooms.
 
Wasn't there some kind of 'scramble' for the ball at kickoff?

If they put a franchise in Oakland there will be plenty of strippers available to shake their ta-tas. Raiders will be gone to Vegas and they have a higher class strippers there.

Well, if TNA can survive this long, anything is possible.

Vince will go batshit crazy with this and try and create a whole new product.

I think going the route of the USFL would be a much more stable approach.

Get away from the nitpicking rules.

Loosen up on hits with signed waivers.

Maybe bring back the bump and run.

WWE has gone PG so you think the XFL will still be raunchy?  Not a chance.  Vince needs to placate even more advertisers and media types for the XFL than for WWE to make this work, and he's already caved to their every whim on the wrestling end of things.  It's a different world than in 2000, the sex/misogyny part cannot exist anymore in anything the slightest bit mainstream. 

And Vince's problem is, he really can't ramp up the violence either because of what we now know about head injuries and the practical reason of needing football players physically capable of taking the field.  So he's not left with much of a way to differentiate himself here, except for more entertaining on-field celebrations and other forms of self-expression, which of course can turn into political statements and create yet another minefield for him. 

Yeah, this whole thing seems like a PR disaster that could be 500 times worse than last time.  It's just the wrong environment to try to start a football league, even if it was possible for there to be a right environment.

Yes, instead of a coin toss, they had two guys line up and try to recover a ball. Sort of like something you'd do at a kids' football practice as a "fun" fumble drill (well, something I remember doing in the 80's, at least). A guy got hurt doing this scramble---during the first week, I believe.
Hey, any XFL will at least be as successful as the UFL (y'all DO remember that...right?)
