    I’m an avid NFL fan.
    It’s important to me to learn the difference in the rules for UFL games.
    Then I can enjoy watching plays without confusion and asking what just happened?
    PLEASE make effort to educate the viewers.
    Remember the old NFL program: “You make the call” we watched a play, given choice of referee calls and then it was explained why the call happened.
    Good way to learn the rules of play.

    Looking forward to Spring football !!

      That is a great idea! I have been an avid NFL/any football fan all my life. But this would be a great way for newbies to learn the difference in the rules. I hope that the XFL rules do not change with the merger. I love the way the game is played in the XFL. That is the way it should be – fun, exciting, creative, competitive!
