  1. Vince McMahon to relaunch the XFL

    Only Tommy Maddox is allowed to use the Tombstone. I said that back in my first comment. Speed the game up, spread it out, and ratchet up the scores. Arena League style and speed on real grass.

    My favorites are the guys on Reddit sure thaylt he's actually going to go after the NCAA and pay HS players and destroy it, as if the NFL or the universities themselves would allow that to happen.
  3. Vince McMahon to relaunch the XFL

    I was thinking that, honestly, they should hire a bunch of crazy spread coaches (go get Mouse Davis) and take advanage of the athletic QBs coming out of college that the NFL forces to change position (or simply ignores), but then I realized that it would just be the BigXII, but worse.
  4. Vince McMahon to relaunch the XFL

    Is it sad that the LA X-Treme are the most successful football team I've ever been a fan of?
  5. Vince McMahon to relaunch the XFL

    Tommy Maddox and the championship can' hear you. Play in spring. They'll never get anywhere close to the talent that the NFL gets, particularly at QB, and regardless of how much money they throw at it they'll always be, functionally, a minor league, so the NFL probably won't give a shit unless they try and play during the fall. Houston McCall. I sound like the best player from 1978. I'm not sure how they expect this to work. The NFL isn't as strong as it ever was, but their issues (player safety, mostly) are going to effect the XFL just as badly, and are, in fact, the exact things the league was sold on last time. Don't get me wrong, I played my high school ball in the 90s, and that era of football is my favorite, but you simply cannot have that emphasis on, let's be honest, violence, in 2018. So, you can't really be more violent than the NFL, and you certainly can't be less violent, that'll never sell. That leaves you two options, use basically the same rules, which means you can't compete, or go out of the box, but even the Arena League is basically dead. Maybe if you could come up with a AFL/NFL hybrid, combine the speed and excitement of the Arena game with the size and scope of the NFL, but I'm pretty sure (listened to a podcast recently) that you actually can't use the nets due to copyright, so... I honestly don't see anyway it succeeds. The only league to successfully challenge the NFL had Lamar Hunt and Al Davis, among others, and a much smaller NFL to contend with.

    Look, I support the Rooney Rule, and if Oakland had failed to follow it I would have been there calling them out, but 99% of the time an organization will have someone in mind. There is simply too much money involved to have a true open competition. Rooney Rule interviews aren't great at getting people jobs immediately, but they do help get names out there. There also needs to be more of an effort into minority coordinators, that will help the pool of coaches, since I'm assuming there's a good mix of minority position coaches, as they tend to be former players. Because you took Nnamdi and ruined him. I have sympathy for 10 year old Meacon, but would like 33ish year old Meacon to remember that it could have been snowballs with rocks in them. That was not fun trivia.

    Mel Kiper's mock is great. Rosen isn't a Brown or a Bronco, and, yes, I do believe I'll take one Roquan Smith.

    Low key, I kinda want Saints/Steelers.
  9. 2017 NFL Season Thread

    I have vague memories of him in Oakland? Am I high? I know he was the OC for my favorite UCLA team, 2005. There was a mini-scandal with him in Oakland IIRC... I have no real issues with the London games, but it sucks to lose the last game with an old rival in Oakland to the UK. Should have picked a different Raider home game, tho there aren' many of those left either.

    Damn, I was hoping he'd come to Oakland.

    Unless you had a one loss ND and another non-conference champion considered better, that team still makes an eight team playoff, solving both issues.

    If he was hireable, sure, but I'm not trading draft picks for him.
  13. 2017 College Football Thread

    8 teams, P5 champs, top G5, two at large. Maybe throw in something to account for two good G5s and reserve a spot for a second if they're in the top 12 or whatever. I'm not going to go look, but I doubt many deserving teams fall through those holes. Maybe in a year with a good ND and a second great G5, then some deserving P5 teams could get left out, but it should work most of the time.

    *parties like it's 1999* Ehhh, Bill the GM also has Bill the coach, and not Riverboat Ron.

    It's going to take a good game with a TD. I'm ok with it, and it's nice to have it come down to Derek Carr's arm Happy with my season either way. I was really happy with my draft, then got slaughtered week one and lost all hope. Got basically everyone's worst week, scored the least points of any playoff team, but we're here with a chance. Not sure who the real life version of that is...
