Forgot it was starting so haven't watched any games live yet. I've heard the first game or two were decent.

This one has what the last one didn't, which is money (owner is Vince McMahon).

Still don't think it matters, once it starts losing money its time to fold up shop.

I don't recall the last one honestly, which is probably half the problem with these football leagues, if no one is watching there isn't a whole lot of point in it continuing. I know its early but that's the feeling I got right off the bat watching the portions of these couple of games this week.

That's not what will make it successful. What will make it successful is getting the NFL to agree to make it an official minor league to the NFL. That's where the other league failed as the NFL said "no". The NFL restricted their "practice team" players from being able to play in the previous league.

I'll be watching it. They've got to rein in the incessant sideline interviews, though -- way too much of that in the Seattle-D.C. game I watched on Saturday.

Stop the sideline interviews and turn off the sideline mics. It cheapens the game.

Here's a good overview of the differences:

Basically, we now have NFL Blitz in real life...

Not sure how that looks like Blitz at all. O_o
But they do seems to speed up and remove some of the stuff that complicates the NFL for better or worse. I could see this being fun.

Glad they did not keep the extreme skank from the original XFL.

These leagues are focused on entertainment and offense. Double forward passes....

I'm not complaining, but it does sort of make it seem like some of the old arcade football games of the past.

I see, I always played Blitz back i the day for the hits and pain. Seems they are still working hard to keep the players safe in the rules while at the same time arcade it up for more faster time and fun.

I did not know it started so soon so I missed the early games. I will have to get on Youtube and catch up and see if it is worth watching.

The first time they tried to launch the XFL 20 years ago it was owned by Vince McMahon and had plenty of money behind it. It lasted 1 season and was canned, Vince himself called it a colossal failure. Hopefully they learned some lessons, which I assume they did if they are confident enough to try again.

Seattle dragons ran the same play as the seattle seahawks in the superbowl and it got picked again...

I'm aware this is the second attempt for the XFL. However, I didn't follow the XFL back then to know what problems they incurred. Sometimes timing plays a key role.

The key to success with the XFL is going to be some sort of partnership with the NFL (similar to the minor leagues for baseball). The reason for this is if there isn't a possible path to the NFL through the XFL, they will never get the non-NFL marquee players.

I do think it's smart that they are using smaller stadiums than the NFL. This will never draw NFL level crowds so it makes it look better on TV using smaller stadiums (as the stadiums look fuller).

Watched one of the games today and it's getting better. You can tell these players haven't played together much and that their systems are new to them but it's improving.

So what you are saying is that Tampa sucks in the NFL and XFL...
