    It was a good game although the QB play needs to be better it was very entertaining.

    The XFL had nearly 10 million people watch its first game before falling off of a cliff. We'll see if the AAF can sustain interest beyond initial curiosity.

    I'm really rooting for the XFL. Still think there is room for a 2nd prominent football league in this country. I enjoyed the original XFL, and am hopeful for the new league.

    Yeah. I am sure the NFL is angry that they have not come up with a way to cash in........ a spring league/minor league or stretch the season out.

    I kind of feel like they should of put the XFL during the summer when we will be bored out of our ass and coming up with magical ways of getting the Rockets better.

    From a viewer's perspective yes, but they'd run into issues with training camps.

    We have a pretty good baseball team to watch...

    They don't do summer for football largely because of the heat, but with so many domes, maybe it could become an option.
