It lasted exactly on full season. It closed because only the first week of iy made any money. The rating were horrible. It was a disaster for NBC and Vince. Long story short: the XFL failed becasue few watched it.

Whatever. First of all, you don't have any depth of knowledge about any of that stuff, so you're just talking out of your ass. Secondly, you wouldn't be saying any of that shit if Barry Bonds wasn't some roided up freak who you're in love with.

It's fucking gay. I have better things to do than deal with someone who can't even debate a point, rather changes the subject again and again to deflect the fact that he's dead wrong. It's what dumbass 6th graders do...


I honestly don't give a fuck about your opinion. Like I told Alex, they're just words on a screen. I can't believe you don't get that concept...but okay.

I mean...you're the kind of guy that thinks if you yell louder than the other person, you will win a debate. And that's not new either...I've pretty much thought that about you from day one...

I didn't want to put it that way, but since you want to press on...

Lame dude. Just lame. I have better shit to do. You probably should too...but I'm betting you don't...

XFL failed because the mass media anted it to fail. The mass media has a hatred for Vince, and when it failed, they were happy. Yeah, the ratings weren't great, but it didn't get any kind of coverage anywhere. Week one got huge ratings as everyone was tunign into to see how it would fare. The league was rushed and the on field product showed. The games near the end of the season and in the playoffs and the championship game were actually pretty good. I think if it had been planned a little better and not rushed, given a little bit more time to develop, then it could have been successful.



But yeah, XFL didn't deliver in the ratings, and NBC wanted out. Vince had no other partner so he was basically forced to scrap it all. Sucks that it went down the way it did.


I'm also moving this to sports....

The XFL sucked... I mean seriously, if I wanted to watch football I would watch a professional league... there were only a few different rules... but they did invent that camera that hangs over the field, and moves along with wires... that is pretty slick...

P.S. - Watch former XFL RB He Hate Me, this sunday, in the Superbowl.

A big reason why it failed was because it was on Saturday nights. No one is going to stay home on a Saturday night, and watch football that isn NFL. I think if it would of been on a different day the ratings would of been alot better.

Well here college football is showed on Saturday nights (mainly SEC and Pac 10 games), but their quality of play was much more superior to XFL.

The XFL closed up because it was doomed from the start. All it got was biased fucking slandering media coverage that were out on a campaign to destroy it the day it was announced. They never gave it a fair chance and couldn't even comprehend that is was a different experience. The whole set up imo was fun and different with a lot more showboating and personality. Yeah, the players weren't all that great, but so what? Fucking CFL and Erurope NFL suck ass all over the place too. It was just because it was attached to WWE and Vince that put the fucking houndog media furry all over them and were constantly belittling and attacking them at every single opportuinity. If they had survived for 3 years, like they had planned on in their initial aggrements, they might be doing ok by now.

Honeslty if Vince wanted to try his luck with a new form of football he should just bought some franchises of that Arena foolball leauge they have going on here in Canada and the U.S....that one is acutally pretty good.

Tommy Maddux too.

Another thing that hurt XFL I thought was how even the commentators (Ventura especially)would be pointing out flaws in the play. I know the NFL does that, but actually laughing when they would do it. That kills a leagues credibiltiy there, if the commentators don't take it seriously, can you expect the audiance to?
