Well we certainly know that the broadcasters were instructed to hype this XFL train.
One thing that was weird to me was them openly saying the NFL was the "next level" and putting it over, I figured they would try to build themselves as a better alternative. To me it was like if McDonalds said "we're a stepping stone for people to eat at Wendy's", or if WCW said they were a stepping stone to the WWF. And hey, I know we all know it's true, just surprised it was said out loud is all.

Is there anywhere that actually has box scores for these games? I can’t find jack shit on most sites other than short write ups and a handful of video clips.

The ABC game did 3.3 million viewers peaking at 4 million. It beat primetime basketball later that night on ABC. Worth noting Ohio was the biggest market. Give them a team they are desperate.

This was the AAF.

Vince learned that poking the bear didn't help the first time plus Goodell wants to give players a chance if they are big enough.
