Some more fancy football XFL style:

“XFL commissioner Oliver Luck revealed the league’s plans on the post-touchdown conversion. A team can go for one, two, or three points, and will have one play from scrimmage (no kicking) to score.”

Just gimmicks. Three point conversions? Why not make it another 6?

Double down! Get the ball at opposition 35, 4 downs to score 6. 

 

Could work..

Even better, cut the field in half and only drive to one end.

So if you score a 6 point conversion to you then get to convert the conversion?   I see hilarity ensuing...

Gadzooks here's a thought. Scoring team takes off their shoulder pads & helmets, wear flags & if they score within 20 plays they get 10 points after a TD.  If they fail to score then  have Jesse Ventura ready to beat up the head coach. Winning coach gets to bag a cheerleader or help give birth to a hand.

You, sir, are a marketing GENIUS! Make it so!

AAF players cannot sign with CFL teams (yet):

“Only players who are free agents can attend free agent or mini-camps with CFL squads. For example, receiver and defensive back Terrell Sinkfield could ink a CFL deal because the Orlando Apollos released him. Conversely, cover man Ciante Evans was signed with the Salt Lake Stallions when the AAF folded and won’t be eligible until the legal issues are decided.”

A cautionary tale for players considering the XFL or any other start-up, like the new arena league.

Doesn't make much sense to me. Signing a contract with a different league in a different country. What's stopping them?

Agree. Who is going to initiate the suit and pay for it?

Crappy business practice to stop players from signing with other leagues. I'd expect that part of the league going under would be the cancelling of all player contracts.

That being said a cornerstone of all leagues is honouring other leagues contracts. No one wants the NFL to ignore CFL contracts even tho they are a different league in a different country.

And now for something completely ridiculous..

 

Holy cow. Multiple forward passes is going to make it easier for referees? It seems like it would be much much much harder.

They're gonna throw all kinds of weird rules and procedures out there just to get attention. I would think that darned few are going to survive.

NFL - winning coaches get drenched in Gatorade.

XFL - losing coaches get power bombed through a table.

If I was them the only changes I would make is the ones the NFL has looked at for the future. Like wider fields, cfl style return rules etc. Give a product that's the future of American football. Also, I liked the sprint to center field for the first position vs the coin flip. 

Skip the silly endless forward passes junk. You could even create excitement by heavily limiting pass rushing. But im sure they will do some thing stupid with rules.

Wouldn't the AAF be in breach of the contract by not paying the players?

Just an unbelievably unfortunate turn of events for these poor players. Just completely classless. Not only are they not going to pay them their contracted amounts but they are going to prevent anyone that has a contract with them, other than the miniscule number of players signed by the NFL, from making a living by playing football. Either pay them or let them go Dundon...FFS!

Maybe, but they would still need a legal remedy in order to void or break the contract. They could sue.
