I posted this in the NFL Thread, but I wanted to see what people think of this that may not post in the other thread. I wonder if Vince actually came up with this idea, or one of his flunkies.

The XFL will put 44 players on the field at the same time for their overtime rules. Both teams will basically try for 2-point conversions on each side of the field simutanously in a two out of three falls bout. This is not a joke. It could be cool, but it could be a disaster too.

Surprisingly, this gimmick is getting praised by a lot of talking heads, including Mike Florio and the USA Today clowns.

"Here’s how it will work…

There will be 44 players on the field at once. On one end, you have Team 1’s offense going up against Team 2’s defense and then the reverse on the other end. The offenses will take turns attempting two-point conversions and best-out-of-five wins. Oh, and defenses will get a point for forcing a turnover.

Gimmicky? Sure. But also a lot more dramatic then the current set up we have in the NFL."

When I can't tell the difference between Vince's actual ideas and Heenan Fan's jokes, it's definitely time for Vince to kill himself.

They said if the D forces a turnover, they get one point. But why can't the defender who comes up with the turnover advance the ball? You can in the NFL. I want to see some 300 pound poor bastard D lineman running a hundred yards with 11 guys chasing him, and 11 guys waiting for him, while 21 of his buddies try to help. That's GOLD. GOLD, Jerry!

OK, I was wrong. Apparently it's 3/5 falls instead of 2/3.

I think I would be more interested if both entire rosters got on the field and did a rugby scrum at the 50 yard line with the first team to make the red zone 4 consecutive times is the winner.

Rules are more convoluted than that 12 man two ring tag match at the Parade of Champions.
