Watched the first game of the revived XFL.
Well, it was football.

Boy, that was ugly.

Ugly play, ugly uniforms... I barely watch the NFL anymore, so It's unlikely I'll stick around with this slower, minor league game. But hey, I gave it a try.

Presentation is well done and the annoucers are more knowledgeable and less annoying than most of the NFL announcers, but yeah, on field play is several notches below most college games. Hope they suceed just because of when they play.
Only 8 teams and team names all pretty terrible.

Why on Earth would they bring back the XFL? I mean, I don't really care one way or the other honestly but what person who is the least bit business savvy is going to invest in an idea nearly 2 decades old and flopped within a couple months of it's original premiere?

Yeah, I don't get it either. I'm not a football fan, but I remember back in 2000 when the original XFL was a thing and even back then it was a joke. A lame attempt to "EXTREME!" up football, when the extreme fad of the 90s was already waning.
