Get the ball on your 25. NFL is watching closely and may follow suit.

Maybe Tomlin was way ahead of the curve here - our return units have sucked for years. :lol:

Advantage Steelers.

Revived XFL league is going back to "Old School" football with no restrictions on hits.

XFL may survive as the NFL becomes more pussyfied. They also won't have money worth suing.

And I'm sure it will be old school scripted, as well.

That's what I've said from the start, the key to surviving for the XFL is having a different game than the NFL. Different rules, less rules, less penalties, less reviews, less stoppages, etc. Why would you watch an alternate football league that was just same rules as NFL with inferior players? They need to really REIMAGINE the sport of football, like McMahon said.

If they know what they're doing, they won't get sued at all, no matter what rules are in place. NFL got their asses sued because they spent all that time and effort to ignore and even hide the dangers of their own sport. If they'd have acknowledged it all from day one, they'd have been fine.

XFL won't be that dumb. They'll have their "i"s dotted, and their "t"s crossed.

Whether the product they put on the field is worth anyone's time is a completely different matter. If they go full gimmick-mode again, they'll fail just as quickly as they did the first time, or get stuck on SpikeTV or wherever, where their viewership will be just enough to keep them afloat until McMahan decides it's not worth the effort to keep it going.
