Would be nice to see teams in cities that don’t have NFL franchises already, but I’m sure they did their due diligence.

 

St Louis did get one but I agree. San Antonio was available but Dallass and Houston got teams.

There are a lot of former bills in this league. I looked through all the rosters and couldn’t believe how many guys were here. If the xfl isn’t going to try and collaborate with the nfl, they should attempt to grab some : move the needle stars.

-Antonio Brown
-Kapernick 

-tebow

-TO

-Ocho cinco

—Josh Gordon 

 Etc

Tebow has not been on an active roster since 2012. Eagles let him go in 2013 and he was not on New England's roster long enough in 2015 to find their QB secret stuff.

It’s not about them being great players. It’s about getting fans to have an interest in watching a new league. Tebow is one of the most polarizing sports figures of our generation. Would matter how he played.

There is zero hype surrounding this new league. 
 

Will it have the legs to make it thru a full year, while hemorrhaging money? 
 

looks like another recipe for failure. I wouldn’t invest any personal money until confident this is going to work.  

Financially speaking, Vince McMahon put up enough money to ensure that it an last three years. The last XFL had enough money to last another year if they wanted to, but knew they weren't gonna make money. I think they learned their lesson the last time, and it won't be so gimmicky.

If they expand, I'm sure SA gets a team. While the AAF failed as a league, San Antonio's team drew 30-40k a game. 

 

What year did you graduate Frontier? 2008 here.

Brown publicly stated he doesn't want to play. Kap, Tebow, too polarizing. Like @Brianmoorman4jesus said, doesn't matter how they play. Plus I feel this league will be marketed to the good ol' boys who claim they don't watch the NFL anymore, so Kap is out. OchoCinco actually wants to join as a kicker, as he's actually almost as good at soccer as he was at football.

Rule differences. According to Wikipedia. 

 

  

Quote

Kickoffs

New XFL Kickoff Formation
The league has an active interest in reviving the kickoffs as an element of the game. (This is in contrast to the AAF, which eliminated kickoffs outright, and the NFL and college football, both of which imposed rules minimizing the impact of the kickoff in the mid-2010s to improve player safety).[45] Many of these kickoff rules were adapted from rules created by The Spring League's predecessor, the Fall Experimental Football League.[46]

  • The spot of the kickoff will be set at the kicking team's 25-yard line.[47] (The NFL and college standard is the 35-yard line.) However, members of the kicking team (excluding the kicker) will line up at the receiving team's 35-yard line and blockers on the receiving team must line up at their 30-yard line. Only the kicker and returner(s) can move until the ball is either caught or three seconds after it hits the ground.
  • Kickoffs that go out of bounds, or fall short of the receiving team's 20-yard line,[48] will come to the kicking team's 45-yard line.[49] (The NFL and NCAA only require a kick travel 10 yards; kicks out of bounds are placed at the receiving team's 40 yard line.)
  • The XFL will use two different types of touchbacks. A major touchback occurs when a kick travels into the endzone in the air, which would result in the receiving team taking possession at the 35. A minor touchback occurs when the ball bounces into the endzone, which would result in the receiving team taking possession at the 15. These rules discourage either team from purposefully taking a touchback.
  • Teams can request to attempt an onside kick under more conventional kickoff rules.


Punts

  • The XFL will not allow gunners; all players on a punting team must remain on or behind the line of scrimmage until the ball is kicked. (This is a carryover from the original XFL, although that league had scrapped the rule midway through its only season.
  • The coffin corner punt would be treated as touchbacks and brought to the 35-yard line. The attempts to neutralize punt coverage are made with the intention of encouraging more fourth-down conversions.
  • The same touchback rules for kickoffs also applies to punts.


Points after touchdown
The extra point kick will be replaced with a scrimmage play, varying in point value depending on how far the touchdown-scoring team chooses to take the snap from the goal line: a two-yard attempt would score a single point, a five-yard attempt two points, and a ten-yard attempt three points. (This rule is also a carryover from the original XFL, which added the rule only for the playoffs. The Stars Football League also used the rule during its existence.) In the event the defense secures a turnover and returns the ball for a touchdown, the defensive team scores the same number of points as the offense was aiming to score.

 

Double-forward pass
Teams will be able to attempt two forward passes on the same play, so long as the ball never crosses the line of scrimmage before the second pass.

 

Overtime
Overtime will be decided by a five-round shootout of two-point conversions similar to a penalty shootout in soccer or ice hockey. (Such a shootout had never been attempted in organized football at the time the rule was proposed; in April 2019, the NCAA adopted a similar concept for games that reach a fifth overtime starting with the 2019 FBS season.) The defense is not able to score, as should a turnover occur, the play would be dead. Defensive penalties will result in the ball moving up to the 1-yard line, while a second defensive penalty on any play, even in future rounds, will result in a score awarded to the offensive team. To speed up the overtime process, both teams' offense and defense will be on the field at the appropriate end zone. Once one team's offense has completed its round of the shootout, the other team's offense plays its round from the opposite end zone.These overtime rules ensure that both teams have an opportunity to win the game and would limit overtime to 5 or 6 minutes. If both teams remain tied after five rounds, multiple rounds of conversions will be played until one team succeeds, thus ensuring that no game can end in a draw.

 

Clock changes

  • Outside of the two-minute warning, the clock will run continuously. During this time, the clock would only stop during a change of possession. This will reverse after the two-minute warning (which the XFL will use), after which the clock will stop after all plays from scrimmage until the ball is spotted and will revert to NFL timing rules otherwise, stopping after incomplete passes, advancing the ball out of bounds and spiking the football. (Arena football has long used a continuous clock with even fewer stoppages; Canadian football does not use a continuous clock, but stops the clock after all plays from scrimmage following that code's three-minute warning.)
  • The play clock will be 25 seconds long measured from the spotting of the ball, roughly the same as the NCAA rule for plays when the clock is stopped. (This is five seconds longer than the CFL rule, which is 20 seconds from the spotting of the ball. The XFL's efforts to speed up spotting are aimed to make the two lengths of time nearly the same, 30 to 32 seconds overall.) The NFL standard is 40 seconds from the end of the previous play, also used during the NCAA during plays when the clock is running; the AAF and previous XFL measure was 35 seconds from the end of the previous play.
  • In conjunction with this rule, the XFL has proposed placing a one-way radio into all offensive players' helmets to allow the offensive coordinator to run a no-huddle offense and call plays directly to all of the players from the sidelines. This would eliminate the need for a huddle.
  • Teams will be given two time-outs per half instead of three.
  • Instant replay reviews will be limited to 60 seconds.[59] There will be no coach's challenges; the sky judge will originate all reviews.

It’s an interesting set of rules. I hope they do a good job during gameplay of going over a lot of this stuff. I like some of the game day announcers too. They seem to have a much better backing from the networks than previous startup leagues

Signing those 6 would cause more fans to switch off than switch on

Kaep isn't going to do anything unless they give him 20 mil a year. I'd bet Brown is in that same boat.
