    The AAF will use the same eligibility rules as the NFL (3 years post HS). Link

    Just saw Oliver Luck say that the XFL will not use the same eligibility rules. That could end up being a true developmental league for kids that don’t go or stay in college. It would make it more interesting considering you would be watching some players that would be true NFL prospects, not just players that aren’t good enough to play in the NFL.

    I've missed the distraction of spring football. It usually never amounts to much, or ever lasts, but it's good to have a few games to watch in the spring. Even if it is minor league. Somewhere, in a box, I still have a few Gambler mementos, some unused tickets and a few game schedules. I used to have a Gamblers hat, I have no idea of what happened to it.

    I'm pretty sure I'll get a Houston hat for the XFL team, if they have a cool name and logo.

    Wow, I live in Florida and can't believe that I never heard that Steve Spurrier is coaching the Orlando team. I also can't believe that he took that gig. He had a cushy job just hanging out at the Swamp being an "ambassador and consultant" for the athletic program there. They must be paying him a lot of money. I also now understand the colors that Orlando team adopted. Orlando is all about the Gators.

    The list there didn't have a QB for the San Antonio team, just two RBs. I wonder if the coach of this team is an OB fan. LOL

    Both of them have at least seen the inside of an NFL training camp, but not for any length of time. It'a a minor league, so that's to be expected. And every team is an expansion team this year. LOL.

    I'm already a San Antonio Commander fan, for however long they can hold my interest.
