I've watched portions of two games. It's not bad, but for me football doesn't have a "must watch" factor if it's not the NFL. I want to support this league and Vince McMahon, though, and hope it does well. I was a fan of the WWE in the early 2000s when the original XFL debuted and tried watching a little of that, but that was even before I was into football at all, so I couldn't get into it. This new iteration has a continuous game clock which I guess was supposed to shorten games. However, the one I watched was still over three hours long. A new league's games shouldn't be any longer than 2.25 or 2.5 hours, so they need to work on that.

^ Some of the XFL players hope it'll be a way to get their foot in the door to play in the NFL. Yeah it was longer than expected and there needs to be some things worked out. Its good though if you're a football fan and want to watch games in the spring.

Not a fan, don't like the rules either.

Right, and the announcers talked about the audition feel to it, which was kind of lame because they're supposed to be promoting this league, not the NFL. I kind of like the extra point thing, although none that I watched went for more than one point. They also only have to have one foot in bounds to count as a catch, which is a nice rule.

The games are on too early in the day. I don't like watching TV on Saturday at noon so it would be better if they aired in the evening.
