I wonder if any current WWE people will compete.

That'd make it even more of a joke than it already is.

How do you play the same sport in the same country and not compete?

Might as well go all out. It's about ratings, not sport.

Sadly I can't remember any teacher before second grade.  If I used that I'd be Max Bassett.

I prefer the "determine your porn star name" version which was first pet's name plus first street you grew up on.  I could always win that one with Max Deepwood.

I'd be Dusty/Izzy Jones... which is just a porn star name.

They should try to be the paid alternative to college football.

They’d get a few bad kids, but every kid worth his salt will know the path to the NFL is by college.

And most parents will want their kids to at least try to get an education out of it.

Stop being logical and reasonable about it :angry:

Oh wait, it said first pet's name. 

So it'd be Rocky Fitzgerald, which may also be the pet name of @Ollie's penis?

Zeppelin and Rocky are the testicles, actually. The member itself is called Lucy.

This is much higher quality discussion than I was expecting from the XFL Redux thread.

So between Josh Freeman, RG3, Tim Tebow, and Johnny Manziel... They got 4 'quality' quarterbacks for the league already...

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.

Cutler would probably play if they let him smoke on the field.

Don't need education about the L.A. X-Treme there DMN, that was my team.
