They are running adds here in Houston for the Rough Necks.

Come on down, y'all to see 100% O'Brien Free Football!

  • We have a coach!
  • We have a GM!
  • They are not the same person and neither of them are morons!

OK, not really, but maybe they should.

XFLboard has an editorial dedicated specifically to the Roughnecks. The writer describes the mismanagement of the Texans and the Astros scandal and hopes the new team can make it all better:

"On February 8, 2020, at 4:00pm central, at TDECU Stadium, there is going to be a stadium full of people, who I guarantee you, don’t agree on almost anything ... But when that whistle blows ... this city, Houston, comes together as one. United, as fans."

That's what I'm hoping for. McGloin and Gilbride look like the best QB/HC combination in the league. But that's easy to say when nobody has played a game yet.

And his first win in the NFL was 3 TD's against my team, damn.

Guardians definitely got the best QB combo, got Luis Perez, a solid backup for a spring league and a former NFL """starter""" (more like reliever lol)

Bring it on, snakey. Your team's not the only one with fangs.

Week 1 injury reports are here.

Can't seem to figure out which team to root for. Wanted to base that off of a combination of team color, uniform and mascot.

I like Houston's look the most but can't make myself root for a team called the Roughnecks.

That sounds more like a porn innuendo than anything else.

"Yeah he roughnecked her..."

I guess I'll just see what team appeals to me the most after Week 1.

XFL theme songs are all up! Get ready to hear this one a lot:

 

Naturally I am biased, but the Guardians' team song is by far the best. It soars like a helicopter ride over the lights and really nails the big-time feel.

 

The other one that will be in my ear for the rest of the day is Dallas, because it's probably the most unique. Nothing is rushed. The song gives itself time to sink in. 

 

Can't leave the other teams out, so here they all are: L.A., Tampa Bay, Seattle, Washington D.C., St. Louis, and Houston!

N.Y., Dallas and L.A. are my top three but I'd like to know what you guys think. :)

Tampa Bay's is so bad lmao

Unfortunately for the rest of the league, these songs won't reflect on-field play. We'll be bringing home the chip, and that's a stone cold lock.

Can't decide between the Vipers and the Dragons as to who to root for.

Seattle sports has made me drink a lot, so I'm leaning Vipes.

So I keep hearing. The Vipers are the favorite to win the inaugural season. I have no idea why, mind you, but there it is. They're also favored to win on Sunday, so people are sleeping on New York before we've even played a game.

That's okay, though. We'll see what happens on the field!

Marquette King lol,  I forgot about him 

The punters are the real stars of this league.

He's the ultimate punter lol because he has a personality. Actually, the BattleHawks posted videos of him on Instagram kicking three-pointers with a basketball... With his back to the net. He and Jake Schum are two of my favorite guys in the league.

also why tf is the vipers Punter so jacked
 

 

Schum actually was the Packers' punter once upon a time. He broke his back and was told that he could never kick again. The XFL is his comeback. I believe it's been five years since he last punted or something like that. Not sure why he's so ripped, I originally thought he was a LB lol. One of my favorite players, though. He's a super positive personality and post lots of motivational crap.
