I doubt this will happen, but anyone think it was odd that the son (Andrew Luck) of the CEO of the XFL (Oliver Luck) just quit the NFL?  There are a lot of players inside the NFL that are unhappy with how the league does things.  Perhaps, but not likely, a behind the scenes player poaching is underway.

that would be the greatest heel turn since Hulk Hogan joined NWO after leg dropping his buddy the Macho Man!

Through the first 6 rounds. Don't think it's a coincidence they're keeping it somewhat local:

St. Louis BattleHawks

Jordan Ta'amu, QB, Ole Miss 
1. Christine Michel, RB, Texas A&M (6) 
2. Brogan Roback, QB, Eastern Michigan (11) 
3. De'Mornay Pierson-El, WR, Nebraska (22) 
4. L'Damian Washington, WR, Missouri (27) 
5. Wes Saxton, TE, South Alabama (38) 
6. Marcus Lucas, WR, Missouri (43)

got a group of 14 with ST.  It started off as 3 of us as a joke but more wanted in.  

That's awesome. My brother and I were just talking about how half of the crowd will be there ironically but then probably keep coming back because it's actually pretty entertaining. Not sure about ST but we'll probably go to the first game and see how it goes.

I friggin' loved Ta'amu at Ole Miss

He’s looked pretty good.  I imagine he’ll get another camp invite come July.

Soo much fun. Awesome to be back watching football there. The energy was amazing.

It’s a little bittersweet that the Billikens don’t get that kind of love from the city.

It's the conference that they're in. Outside of playing Dayton and maybe VCU, no one cares about Atlantic 10 basketball.

It's not (just) the conference. Like it or not, football is king (I don't particularly). Throw in a little scorned wife showing off the new boyfriend, and it's pretty easy to see why the XFL, at least for now, is a huge draw in STL. I doubt we'd get that much attention even if we were BEASTing it.

Better late than never for this:

Also, I hear they're looking to open the upper deck for the game against none other than LA. It will be sold out, you heard it here first. 

depends on how much they open. Its not going to sell out a full 66k.  The only chance may have been for the home opener, and I still dont think it would have gone higher than 40k.  I think they should open the blue seats in between the lower and upper bowl. 

 

Also its annoying that they only sell bottle beers.
