Texans

Colts

Browns

Steelers

Lions

Titans

Bears

 

Thats not bad at all.

Steelers is definitely in Jacksonville possibly their only sell out game. It'll be 80% Steelers though.

anyone watch any XFL?

I gave it a go, I think I'm a fan, once you get past the distinct lack of quality compared to NFL football it's an enjoyable watch. 

 

The main issue is definitely the quality of the defensive options available, I think there's going to be a fair amount of high scoring games.

I really enjoyed the XFL - I like the in game player/coach interactions (except interviewing the kicker after he'd just missed was a bit brutal).

I liked some of the new rules too, in particular the points after TD which add a new tactical dimension.

The standard is a bit below NFL but 95% of the players have been in NFL or CFL set ups so its not too shabby.

Dont know if I'll ever follow a team like I follow my NFL team but it will entertain me for the next few weeks until the draft and the NFL pre-season.

One of my favourite sports bars is just across the road from the USF campus in Tampa so I've picked them as my XFL team as I intend going to watch them if they are still around in a couple of years. I am doomed to support struggling teams if the first week is anything to go by.

As a Bolton fan, you know how it goes. Enjoy the good times to the max when they finally come around.

No doubt a Dan Marino devotee? Had some good times in Florida so don't mind any of their teams doing well.

Did you used to play as well Traf? Didn’t realise anybody played it over here, especially back in the 60’s 😉

Where's that yawn smiley? Heard it all before from both rugby code types. Takes ten seconds for them to completely change their tune in my experience.

Cheers Traf - much appreciated. Not sure which team that is though? The white helmets have thrown me? I left for Oz in early '88 so maybe that is a Braves re-birth? Couple of faces very familiar  - especially 5th from the right back row. Looks like our star free safety.

No idea, sorry. Just saw the photo on Facebook and thought you might know more about it.

Cheers Traf - very much appreciated. Founded by Dave Batty - that would explain why a number of faces on that team photo looked familiar. Definitely Ghost in the back row and there's a few others I recognised including Tonge Folds biggest Miami Dolphins fan!

The Texans trading away the best WR in the game for an average running back and a 2nd round pick is just odd.

I could understand if they were rebuilding like the dolphins but they only seem to be a couple of pieces away from being real contenders.
