    Any of you guys know off the top of your head if they're using the same rules as the first XFL?

    I remember they had things like no field goal for extra point and they had to run head on against each other for possession of the ball instead of a coin toss.

    A short summary of changed rules (mostly from NFL rules):
    Kickoffs: Kickoffs must land between the opponent's 20-yard line and the end zone. If the ball is short of the 20-yard line or out of bounds, the receiving team takes possession at the 45-yard line. Kicks out of the end zone result in a "major touchback" to the 35. Teams must communicate onsides kicks to the officials, and the procedure for those will be the same as the NFL.

    Extra Points: After touchdowns, teams can run a play from the 2-yard line, 5-yard line or the 10. Those three distances result in one, two and three points, respectively.

    Punting: Touchbacks during the punting process will result in the receiving team taking possession at the 35-yard line.

    Double-Forward Pass: If a pass is complete behind the line of scrimmage and the ball has not advanced past it, that offense can throw an additional forward pass down the field.

    Overtime: When a game goes to overtime, it will be an alternating five-round shootout. The team with the most points at the end of the five rounds wins. If the game is still tied at the end of five rounds, the format shifts to alternating one-round shootouts.

    Well that whole second half experience sure did suck.

    Overall though - we were pretty entertained by the weekend's opening games. Fast paced and offensive minded play. Very interesting to hear live audio explaining calls to coaches. Not sure about the interviews with players immediately after scoring plays, that screams of risk for non-family friendly audio.

    Level of play was obviously not NFL caliber, but that was to be expected. My wife asked if we could go to a Wildcats game, and that already is a big win.
