I’m Eila Adams, thanks for joining us here at Naked News. If you’re anything like me, you probably remember the XFL as a novelty football league that appeared and then DISAPPEARED roughly two decades ago. Well, as Frankie’s about to tell us in Naked Sports, it’s making a comeback,and in a pretty significant way!
That’s right Eila, we’ve got team names, coaches, dates, and rules. This thing is really happening!
Well, Vince McMahon USUALLY comes through… but I’ll believe it when I see it!
Fair enough, but your mind might change after I give you a taste of what the XFL has in store for us. Welcome inside my Naked Sports report everyone. I know there are skeptics like Eila out there, and the name XFL is asking for it. But prepare yourself, one and all, for The Dallas Renegades, Houston Roughnecks, Los Angeles Wildcats, New York Guardians, St. Louis BattleHawks, Seattle Dragons, Tampa Bay Vipers, and my personal favorite, because it sounds like a comic book, The D.C. Defenders!
But what’s in names, right? What has fans most psyched are the rules that distinguish the XFL from the NFL. All of which should make its product more exciting. There’s a faster play clock, 25 seconds versus the NFL’s 40. There are no fair catches, with defenses instead required to stay at least five yards away from the returner until the catch. And you can have multiple forward passes, so long as they’re all from behind the line of scrimmage.
And here are the big two: If you want an extra point after a touchdown, you’ll have to earn it. AND there are multiple options. You can go for one from the 2-yard line, two from the 5-yard line, or three from the 10-yard line!
And as for Overtime, it’ll be shootout-style! Each team will get five attempts from the 5-yard line, with both offences and defenses STAYING on the field, and may the best team win.
So there you have it. The first game is set to take place February 8th, the weekend AFTER the Super Bowl. It’ll run until the championship game on April 26th. We’ll be watching! For Naked News, I’m Frankie Kennedy.
