    The XFL draft is rapidly approaching and Mr. Vad Lee is eligible. Can’t wait to see Stingtalk hyperventilate when he goes in the 1st round. I saw two other GT players on the draft list as well (Freeman and Jaylen Johnson).

    I think the one thing he (Vince) learned was this time around not to include anything WWE related with the XFL. On their opening game back in 2001, the Rock opened up the game. That was a red flag to me and a bad omin for his brand of football. Just give us football, Vince.

    And Good Ol JR and Jerry Lawler on commentary (though in the early 80’s Jim Ross did do color commentary for the Falcons broadcasts).

    The XFL must be a front for some kind of illegal activity. Bad football maybe?

    I wonder what the XFL thinks will allow this football league to survive when all others not named AFL or NFL have failed, including the previous version of XFL? I mean, if the AAFL couldnt survive with it's pretty cool regional concept and loyal fans during its short life, how can anyone else make it?

    There's no guarantee that it will be a success, however, McMahon has learned his lessons from his first stint at it. I think it will do OK at first, long term I'm not sure. They will have to be very innovating and engaging for the viewers to stay tuned.

    Doubtful for the success of this. Most folks just don't care to watch third rate football.

    A lot of college fans watch it every Saturday. What they need are stars and fan alliance, but that’s tough sledding for sure.

    The XFL won't have the same age requirements as the NFL. Maybe that will help with talent level for them to grab these high talent guys from college/hs and essentially be a feeder system to the NFL.
