I remember I was pretty excited for it because it was supposed to be so violent. If I remember correctly it wasnt any mor violent than the NFL.

Man those XFL cheerleaders were a pretty skanky bunch. Not that I had a problem with that.

Hey man, Karen McDougal (former Playboy playmate of the year) was an XFL Cheeleader...I didn't mind at all! 8-o ;-D

As far as I know, the XFL was the innovator of the "SkyCam" that ESPN now uses all the time. Of course, they didn't use it for the correct purposes - it is useful for replay angles, but they decided to use it for actual game play. I had a very hard time following what was going on.

I liked the race for possession of the ball at the beginning of the game. He Hate Me was awesome, Tommy Maddox was the XFL MVP...other than that, it was pretty bad. They really needed to have better announcers than Matt Vasgergian and Jerry "The King" Lawler. They tried to bring in Jim Ross, and that didn't help at all.

The best thing about the XFL that I would actually like to see in the NFL was the "fumble" prior to the game where 2 players struggled for the ball to see which team would "win the toss"

Is that the thing where they put the ball at midfield and the players were on the thirty and they had to sprint to the ball and wrestle for it to see who gets the ball first?

Good times. ;-D
