    Well I would say if we are going to go to a show that we just do Full Gear on that Saturday.

    Well they have hired coaches and coaches have started hiring staff with some announcements yesterday. But no cities have been named. Guess they are using the same cities and names but nothing official yet. It has been reported locally that the dome has blocked off dates next spring around the time that the XFL plans to play. Hoping BattleHawks are back.

    Now they're called the RoughRocks


    Every team is now named after a character portrayed by Dwayne Johnson.


    the BattleHawks are now the Roadblocks.

    Finding out the cities that get teams on Sunday. Be dumb to not give St. Louis a team

    St. Louis with a team and now a coach. No team names or logos or anything yet. Dropped three cities from last go around. I think I saw three teams in Texas. I get football is life down there but geez.

    Team names and logos announced. They pretty much kept everything from last time but yet we had to wait and wait for this announcement....

    Not a big fan of these city selections. Too many teams that are already in NFL markets. San Antonio and St. Louis are great, but Orlando and Tampa, really? They're 90 minutes from each other. 3 teams in Texas and none in Birmingham is very dumb.

    Since they're playing in the spring, I guess playing in NFL markets isn't too big a deal, but Florida is a bad idea for minor league football. Attendance in those games sucked compared to St. Louis' games. I think going into football-starved cities is a better strategy.

    XFL draft coming. Today was QB selections. St. Louis picked up AJ McCarron. Not sure I feel about that. We shall see. Just hate cheering anyone from Alabama. lol

    I really liked our QB from last time (Jordan Ta'amu) who was from Ole Miss so bonus. He bounced around practice squads and finally ended up in the USFL and where he lead in passing yards and TDs.

    I always enjoy the drafts with a new league to see what players were with the top leagues of their respective sport before landing there.

    Schedules released. St. Louis starts on the road for 3 games. Ugh. One of their home games is same day as a St. Louis City match so that means downtown will be crazy. I plan on making a least one game if I can.

    Seattle is the Sea Dragons. If there was not a St. Louis team I may have jumped on that wagon because I love dragons of any kind.

    Dammit. I just realized that DC picked up the starter for the Battlehawks from 2020 to be their starting QB. Jordan Ta’amu He was great for the Battlehawks and he is an Ole Miss alum to boot. Instead I have a filthy Bama alum for starting QB to cheer for.

    Wild that Josh Gordon ended up in the XFL. Got a look at the rosters, not more than a dozen names I recognize. Hope they bring back the nicknames on jerseys.

    They didn't do nicknames last time. That was just the first time around however many years ago now. 2020 version was more football than entertainment.

    Yeah not a ton of names people will recognize. For me on the Battlehawks roster: A.J. McCarron played some in NFL but mostly known for his time at Alabama. Austin Proehl is son of Ricky Proehl former Rams favorite back when they were in St. Louis. Plus Ricky is one of the coaches for the Battlehawks.

    I feel like I know a few more names through the league but not much. Most of these people never really made the NFL but maybe did USSF or something after college or bounced round NFL practice squads or something.

    St. Louis Battlehawks had a really fun comeback today. I am so happy to see the XFL back. I was digging the St. Louis team before Covid hit and ruined everything. I hope they can finish the season and we get a playoff.

    I am kicking myself. I was struggling to stay awake and assumed game was over with how good the other team's defense had been shutting down our offense. Turned off tv at 2 minute warning and napped. Fucking missed the comeback.

    I am thinking of catching a Michigan Panthers game at Ford Field. I hope they can improve over last year's crappy season. I am glad they are playing here in Michigan though.

    Yes he did hit the game winning FG but he also was 2/4 on the night and was something similar last week.

    Kudos to the Battlehawks for winning their first two games.

    Damn. Demand keeps going up for tickets. St. Louis opened up the 300 level seating and now has opened up the 400 level seating for the game this week for their home opener. Fucking Kroenke should have just found a way to build a new stadium here or update the Dome. The fans of this city want football here.

    Minor league football can be profitable if it's done in football-starved cities. Should be a fun game to watch.

    I need to look at my calendar and the schedule to figure out if I can get down there for a game. Even if I sit up in the higher seats just to be there will be fun.

    This league better survive. The ratings haven't been great, but bad ratings haven't been as dire as they have been in the past.

    I heard the point differential had something to do with it , but i'm not totally sure. Michigan panthers look good last weekend and i'm hoping to catch One of their games at Ford field.

    If we win and Seattle wins yeah I think it goes to point differential I guess because we are tied head to head.

    Okay just checked if we win and Seattle loses we are in. If we both lose we are in. If we lose and they win they are in. If we both win then it comes down to point differential. We need to win by more than 19 points and still rank first in total points against.

    I have an extra ticket so now time to see who I can get to come with me and the oldest and their boyfriend.

    I was worried in the first half that we wouldn't win big but that changed in the second half to set record for points in a single game. AJ had like 6 touchdowns. Sadly not enough though as Seattle won the tie break and goes to the playoffs while a team from the south with a losing record goes to the playoffs....

    With eight teams, they should've gone without divisions and reward the top four teams. A team with a losing record in the playoffs is not a good show for them.

    I can understand doing divisions especially if you are doing just 10 weeks. home and home vs division and then one game each against the other division is nice and tidy. You wouldn't really expect to see a division suck as bad as the south but there you go. It does suck that a losing team is in when a winning team is out.

    And of course the team with a losing record wins the playoff game and will play the best team in the league for the championship.

    DC needs to win this to avoid the stench of the inaugual champion having a losing record.

    And AJ McCarron deserved the MVP trophy damnit!

    Yeah I have to ignore that he was from Bama but AJ was a beast and that last game was record breaking. Didn't he lead the league in a lot of things and he missed a game.

    I can understand why Ta'amu was named offensive player of the year despite not leading that many categories. He was near the top and he lead the DC team to the best record. He can also run the ball and was near the top in rushing yards where AJ didn't have that. He ran but not as much. I am a fan of his. He is from Ole Miss. He was on the first Battlehawks team before the shut down and was basically leading all categories and leading us to a top record before the shut down. I hate that he has never gotten a shot at the NFL. He has been on practice squads and gotten some tryouts but never got to play a regular season game.

    The best team in the league got beat so a team that finishes 6-6 if you add their two playoff wins is the XFL champ

    I think they should do away with divisions unless they add more teams. Arlington got hot, but a 6 and 6 team shouldn't wi. the inaugural championship.

    Yeah it would be nice if they could have done like a 14 week season and just played everyone twice and done like top 4 teams or something.

    I mean they were spinning as well as they could as the cinderalla team especially against the top team in DC

    I imagine we’ll see XFL ownership take a look at the whole process.

    I feel like the sole purpose of the 2023 season was to establish a baseline: all eight teams completed their seasons and they crowned a champion. Not only that, a second season looks promising.

    I agree. I think it was a good season and good start the league.

    XFL and USFL are now the UFL. Teams and such have not been named yet. XFL has been selling season tickets for their teams even after the announcement that the leagues were merging

    St. Louis sold a lot last season and demand was already up for this season to the point of opening the very top tier of seats. I have been debating them since they are reasonably priced.

    Looks like 8 teams so not all the teams made the cut.

    Looks like they kept 4 teams from each league. There is an XFL division and USFL division. I am sure I will catch at least one game
