    I don't know about ratings yet, but a football analyst I heard being interviewed on the radio really liked the action from Saturday. (The interview was on Sunday morning before the last two games of Week 1.)

    I changed my mind about tuning in and watched the TB-NY game. What I don't like is coaches being interviewed while they're trying to coach their teams. What was really embarrassing was when a sideline reporter tried to interview a defensive player for New York who said "I gotta go!" when he was trying to run out to the field. I guess she didn't know which team was about to go on defense.

    By the way, the Tampa Bay Vipers need to punch it in for a touchdown when they get the chance. 1st-and-goal from the 4: 3 points. 1st-and-goal from the 2: 0 points. That's how you lose 23-3.

    Ratings for Week 1 were considered to be good and "promising". All four games (which were played in NY/Newark, Washington DC, Houston, and Dallas) drew 17,000-something (average of 17,454.5).

    The only appropriately sized XFL stadiums are in DC and Los Angeles (both MLS stadiums). I wish the XFL would have chosen Citi Field (MLB's Mets home) for the New York Guardians. It's about half the size of MetLife Stadium. Also, a New York team should actually be in New York. Wien Stadium at Columbia University in Manhattan seats 17,000, but only one-fourth of that is chair seating (although the Houston Roughnecks home stadium at U. Houston is also mostly what I call "backbreaker seating" -- backless benches).

    No, I will not be watching. Between the NFL, NHL, MLB, college basketball, and tennis, my life as a sports fan is booked to the max. I really don't have time to dedicate to watching a second football league.

    You should dump tennis and the NHL.

    How do point spreads work? Total number of games played (combined from each set) or something like that?

    Lets face it, not every NFL hopeful is going to make it. There are only so many spots for so many people. This could give good players a place to continue on, polish their skills and maybe earn a living waiting for a spot to open up on an NFL team. This is a good thing.
