The Xtreme Football League.  It was a professional football league that played its only season in 2001.

As originally conceived, the XFL was operated as a joint venture between the WWE and NBC. The XFL was conceived as an outdoor football league that would take place during the NFL off-season and promoted as having fewer rules and encouraging rougher play than other major leagues.

The league had eight teams in two divisions, including major markets and those not directly served by the NFL. The XFL operated as a single entity with all teams centrally owned by the league. Vince McMahon, the CEO of WWE and brains behind the operation, wants to bring the WWE into Americas most popular sport: football.

McMahon has recently come out with the statement that the XFL is expected to be reintroduced in 2020. Many people are skeptical, due to it only lasting one year in its previous debut. The XFL expects to make fans leave the NFL and watch the wild and unruly XFL.

“The XFL is stupid,” said senior linebacker Will Johnson. “Be an American and watch the NFL.”

Senior safety Hunter Jacobson, an advocate of the XFL, said, “I like football when it gets rowdy. I am sick of watching the strict rules of the NFL affect the play of the players.”

Only time tell if the Xtreme Football League will make it or break it.
