I don't know man, I like some things about their game. I don't care for the 3 downs, but the multiple men in motion is cool and you can score 1 point which can get you crazy endings like this:


Imagine a Tennessee/Florida game coming down to each team punting it back to each other.
That is bizarre, feels like they were making it all up as the play was going on.

Hoping all 3, USFL, XFL & CFL, merge together.
I'm holding my breath that the USFL is coming back. They tried this in 2013 and it never happened, though having Fox Sports back it gives it more credence.

I wonder what that means for the XFL then, because sounds like it means the XFL won't have Fox Sports as a TV provider; unless the seasons won't overlap.

With Dwayne Johnson as the XFL backing it's possible with his connection to the WWE and the WWE's new connection with Peacock NBC's streaming service the XFL could end up on NBC and USA Network as NBC is shutting down their NBC Sports net and moving things like NHL & NASCAR to USA & Peacock.

If the XFL and CFL end up in some sort of merger/partnership then ABC/ESPN might get involved since the CFL already has an agreement with ESPN for televising their games in the US mostly through ESPN+ but also some games on ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNNews.

Personally I want the CFL to stay seperate but I'm fine with them setting up a partnership with the XFL for financial stability for both sides. So I would hope the XFL's season would stay the same (Feb-April) or moved up a bit as long as it ends before the CFL starts (June).

If the XFL and USFL both end up playing, I wouldn't mind them having parallel seasons but I would hope it would build competition and not hurt each other in fighting for viewers.

Now the XFL has announced they are returning in 2023.

Call me cynical but I'm starting to doubt it's coming back; especially if the USFL actually kicks off and does well.
