Did anyone get BattleHawk tickets? I purchased season tickets the other day. I'm pumped :bananaride:

I'm waiting for the announcement of a St. Louis-area X League expansion franchise. You've gotta invest wisely these days.

As of last Friday already 6000 season tickets were sold in STL. I believe STL is already being recognized as the number 1 XFL city.

Maybe we can start up a new Arena Football League Matt. I hear the current league might be folding. You know someone is going to bring it back.

We are starved for football. I hope the league makes it, because I like some of the ideas they have to make the game more entertaining.

Yeah I think they are taking their time, and putting WAY more effort into it than last go around.

I'm very excited for this league and am anxious to see the new rules/ideas they are implementing

I agree. I really hope the new rules lead to some more creativity on the field. The double forward pass rule is a great idea. I love the idea of taking the kickers out of the extra point attempts. And the one-foot-down rule on a catch is a no brainer. I think it will be a mix of Arena Football and college, and I'm looking forward to it.

the balls look amazing as well (giggity) and the new "threads" will help with grip.

The main thing I'm hesitant of -and others in my social circle have expressed the same sentiment- is the talent level...how big of a drop off will there be? O..will there even be a drop off?
