XFL anyone? I wonder whatever happend to He Hate Me.
I missed the XFL. The L.A. Xtreme won the only XFL title in league history, all thanks to Tommy Maddox.
i think i had him on my XFL fantasy team...or maybe it was Jim Druckenmiller
See, you guys jest, but Maddox made a very successful bounce back to the NFL on the back of that title win, and He Hate Me also made the transition to the NFL (albeit less successfully). Neither player had much chance of doing so at that stage of their careers without some stage to showcase their skills, so the XFL was a godsend for them.
The NFL always has gems fall through the cracks of the draft system, guys who had tremendous talent but didn`t play for a big enough school, or guys who were hurt too late in their college career to get on the draft radar, etc. Kurt Warner anyone?
The NFL could use another minor league to pick up the slack IMO.
