Special teams are one of the best parts of a football game, and the XFL model is just as good.
In the NFL, the punter punts, and the race is on. Both teams rush at each other like wolves. In the XFL, the kickoff begins after the ball is caught.
The result is a bullying match between teams as both walls collide. It is absolutely sick. Watch above!
Is it cooler than that of the NFL? Nah, but it’s new, and new is fun.
The XFL is building its brand on toughness and brutality. This kickoff format is an absolute wrestling match, and it’s awesome.
Well done, Vince McMahon.
