While the votes are still rolling in on our Twitter account, it looks like a good number of you were interested in catching at least one game of the newly relaunched XFL this past weekend – we were too! What? Just because the XFL is also launching in 2020 doesn’t mean we are rooting for their demise. And we aren’t the only ones either. NFL players like JJ Watt, Robert Griffin III, and Marcus Cromartie took to Twitter to share what they were enjoying about the league’s first weekend.
At the end of the day – we’re football fans. Sure, we might have some troll-like behavior from time to time and will have to include some fun blunders in this blog, but we’re still rooting for the XFL. Now that we’ve got all that out of the way, let’s dive in to some choice moments from this weekend’s games:
- We had to start this list off with the very first touchdown in the XFL, of course. Way to go, Dragons!
- You know how much we love a good trick play, and the DC Defenders delivered.
- What’s better than one headset? Two. That is the only correct answer here.
You can never have too many headsets in the XFL. pic.twitter.com/7bj6Q4IGna— Stadium (@Stadium) February 9, 2020
- What’s better than getting the first TD in the XFL? Getting the first ejection 😏
Vipers DT #97 Ricky Walker was flagged & ejected for throwing a punch! First player to be ejected in the XFL LMAO! pic.twitter.com/mSsRfLT5VK— SUSPENDED AGAIN (@FTBeard1) February 9, 2020
- Pat McAfee asking Marquette King why he ruined a perfect punt is the best thing that happened all weekend and you can’t tell us otherwise.
And Pat McAfee went to interview him LMAOOOO pic.twitter.com/ZhJPBzO49B— SUSPENDED AGAIN (@FTBeard1) February 10, 2020
If there’s anything we learned from the XFL this weekend, it’s that we need someone asking the important questions on the sidelines immediately following a major play – regardless of whether it was good or bad. Was there anything else you saw during the weekend that had you think ‘We need that in the FCFL?’ Let us know!
