yeah...watched half a game and seemed to be somewhat slow. Watched Cardale Jones, who was cut by the Cardinals, light it up in his first game in XFL... to me, either the Cradinals missed out OR the talent in the XFL isnt " premier"...
The latter seemed to be true.

Games weren't bad. I like the soccer stadium venues better than the large 3/4 empty stadiums. I'll watch again.

Jones played for the Bills and Chargers. He last tried with the Seahawks but got cut from their practice squad.

It sure as hell beats no football. But here is the rub from what I've seen, and it's just my opinion. I'll still be watching as the product isn't bad at all. But big time college football and the NFL will always be better and more exciting IMO.

NFL QB is the hardest position to play in pro sports. Most teams in the NFL don't have a good quarterback. The XFL has a QB problem from the games I've seen (the NFL does too btw). The problem is - everyone on the field was a stud in college. Not quite good enough to make a real career in the NFL, but still was an excellent player. So the defenses are to good and fast for the Offense to beat them with a college style offense - which is a lot easier on the QB. But the QB's aren't really good enough to run a more pro style offense - or they'd be in the NFL. So the QB play has not been good at all.

That said I still think the games are worth watching and entertaining.

Not so sure this was a wise investment. A lot of people got screwed with the last deal. Including people who had bought season tickets. You could blame the virus but this is the 2nd attempt by McMan. I am not so sure what The Rock knows about football anyway. Wonder if they will be allowed to take a knee?
He played for University of Miami and has financial backing so who knows.

Definitely should be interesting...He was really good when he played football...Then nailed it in wrestling...then, superstarred it in Hollywood...If his last endeavors are indicative of what comes next, then, we might have XFL!...Anything he touches, turns to gold!...:He's got the midas touch!...

The Rock is also a Hollywood ass kisser kind of like JJ Watt has become He may have Black Lives Matters painted on all of the fields and involve politics in sport. Sick to death of that. I just don't trust the guy.
