Damn they’re appealing times. I might have to tune in.

Anyone watching?

Interesting enough. Week 1 and I don't think there were any pre-season games so not going to criticise the standard on offer so far. Kick Offs look good but the point-after tries after TDs have been pretty poor so far. The in-game interviews are interesting. Just had out first F-bomb.

Looks like a decent enough crowd too. Places hold 20,000 so my guess would be around 12-13k.

It's actually fun. The kickoffs are so much better than the NFL. Hopefully that is something they adopt at some point but Goodell might not want to admit they thought of something better than his league

Coaches mic'd up is also really nice. We can hear immediately if they are planning to go for it on 4th/kick fg/punt.

Apparently Tampa Bay are one of the favourites, so I guess I should support them so Marc Trestman can disappoint me one more time for old times sake.

Quality is questionable but in fairness it is the first game. I love the kick off rules. The pace has been very good too I think this has a decent chance of succeeding this time around

Official attendance has been announced as 17,163. Not bad.

I had to laugh at the DC coach there. He was doing what every play caller does in the NFL, covering his mouth with the play sheet so the opposing team can't read his lips as he calls in the plays but the calls are being broadcast and everyone can hear everything.

Watching on TSN Canada and they are advertising AEW on their ticker at the bottom while showing the XFL. Vince won't be happy

That review was poorly handled by the guy upstairs. 1st down should have stood I think.

How come this doesn’t cause problems - what’s stopping them being relayed to the other team? Or are they just indecipherable if you don’t know them?
