Thumbs down R.I.P. XFL

Okay,does any body care that it looks like the XFL is gonna bite the big one??
"Pro" wrestling is one thing but trying to combine that "image" and football?? Give me a break!!
I'll stick with the NFL,(as bad as it can get sometimes!!),and College ball any day over the Xtremely F*@ked Up league!!

the end of the xfl reminds me of this radio show i heard.

the one dj said, "well it's official, toad the wet sprocket broke up."

the other one said, "well all i can say is, so."

i watched one game. it's boring.

I don't care. But I am eager for the football season to start again. How much longer?

I'd rather watch the XFL than the NBA of baseball, or golf, or bowling! And it doesn't compete with the NFL. It is pretty good football though!

Thumbs down

I watched half a game a few weeks ago because it was on while we were eating pizza at Curry Village. Boring! I read a quote in the San Jose Mercury News a while back, where Bob Costas said something along the lines of "I always thought someone would combine bad high school football with a strip joint." Pretty much sums up my attitude toward XFL.

Am I mistaken, or does someone actually think this?

RANT MODE ON ! ! !

First of all if Rugby is SOOOO great why do only rugby players watch it?

Secondly, if you're all so tough and hit eachother SOOOO hard, why do you all drink at the clubhouse after matches? Football players fight eachother after games.

Thirdly, has anyone ever heard of the NRL? Didn't think so.

Fourth, In Canada we can bet on sports through Pro-Line, RUGBY IS NOT ONE OF THE SPORTS LISTED ! ! !

Fifth, Anyone who is a non rugby player name a single famous rugby player. Ask the same question to someone who was never a football player.

Sixth, There is a reason why there are WAY more serious injuries in football than in rugby.

Seventh, When was the last time you saw two rugby players run full speed head to head with the intention of inducing severe pain? They ALWAYS, ALWAYS go for the legs...

Eighth, When are you supposed to get a beer during a rugby game on TV, the freekin' game never stops!

Ninth, My head should never be that close to another mans ass.

Tenth, the gear is to keep us alive because we hit with intent to harm.

RANT MODE OFF...

I played 4 years of CIAU (University Level) Ball here in Canada, and have had this debate with all my rugby buddies. But come on, anyone who has played both sports will tell you football is way tougher!!!

BTW the XFL sucks. It's not very well organized and the quality of the play is poor. I enjoy both the CFL and the NFL, but prefer the CFL because those are the guys I played with/against in university and we share the same rules.

Cheers, and no hard feelings Mr Tough Rugby Guy
