I was working on something deep and meaningful to post, but that’s taking a toll on me and I won’t have it done today.
So, I decided to get blogity about my latest discovery. XFL. I knew there were other professional football leagues, but I don’t think I’ve seen any of the alternatives to NFL on TV before.
After seeing a game today, what can I tell you about XFL? Beside the fact that the team names sound like motorcycle clubs to me instead of football teams, the league is made up of good players.
This is just a guess. Some NFL players might be playing for XFL, since the NFL finished up last week. But what do I know? I’m brand new to XFL. I could look into it, but I don’t feel like it right now.
XFL seems to be popular enough. Shots around the stadium revealed that the lower level seating areas were full. The upper levels, not so much. But even in the NFL, stadiums aren’t always full.
I’m not positive, but I think the rules are a little different in XFL. I saw some weird things. Once the players formed two straight lines that stretched across the field, but not like they would in kickoff/recieving teams. The lines were too close togther.
I was too busy trying to figure out what was going on and I didn’t really see how the play went. I think it was a snap and rush that quickly ended with a tackle and no gain. I just, never saw anything like that before.
Another thing. It seems that, after a touchdown, instead of kicking for one additional point, in XFL they rush for the additional point. I know that in NFL, after a touchdown, sometimes they will rush instead of kick. But that counts for two points and they usually only do that when they need two points instead of one.
Is this because XFL doesn’t have enough qualified kickers? It did seem that the fieldgoal kickers missed a lot.
Well, I guess XFL is something I can turn to if I’m really in the mood to watch football when NFL and NCAA are done. It’s entertaining enough.
Pork chops for supper.
