The appetite is there. And now that the XFL has an exclusive agreement with ESPN/Disney to broadcast and stream all 40 of its games plus the playoffs, along with a calendar that will make players available to transition into NFL off-season programs at the start of May, the league just might be able to make this spring football thing work.
“We’re quality football at a time of year when football isn’t played,” said Duch. “And we are integrating that football product and our players in a unique storytelling opportunity that creates an immersive and personal experience for fans. That’s what I’m most excited about.”
I think the XFL is doing the right thing by being in the city they represent, and the talent (granted not the NFL Level) is much better than the USFL. Says a lot about the coaches in the XFL.
I think there are a lot of potential NFL-level backups in the XFL. As some potential up-and-coming coaches as well.
I'm going to the home opener for the St Louis Battlehawks in a few weeks. I can't wait. This is fun football to watch and it is affordable to take a family to a game. I'm hoping to take our family to a Bears game this year too. But the cost is so expensive. There really is a need for a league like the XFL, for a number of reasons. But most of all it is entertaining to watch... the two games I watched this past weekend were fantastic and fun to watch.

I think the most important thing about these leagues is to give these guys a spot to shine. What they put their bodies through and to have to all stop is a sin. Besides it can also be viewed as a feeder league.
