Armstrong, Westerkamp to get shots with XFL

If I recall, the AAF folded because one of the owners was basically using it as a tax shield / write off. He never wanted it to be successful; just successful long enough for a payday.

If Westy was a bigger guy, he'd get some looks at TE. If you can succesfully hog up space, plus have great hands, you can make a job for yourself at TE without having breakaway speed. Quick slant routes and check downs are your best friend.

Nate Swift was as good as Westerkamp. Great hands, nearly identical college stats. And Swift had a couple inches on Westerkamp. Nate also didn't make the NFL.

XFL is likely doomed based on History of alternatives to the NFL since the USFL. If there was an obsessed billionaire who wanted to make a 10-year commitment it could work. Otherwise, all attempts are dead in the making IMO.

Vince McMahon definitely qualifies for the first half of your requirements

NFL has "safetied" their way right out of an audience.

There is an opportunity for a new league to fill a niche, IMO. We like our gladiators to die on the field of battle, not running OOB, or sliding to avoid contact.

The violence is the allure of football. NFL has turned it into basketball on grass. GROSS.

Good point. Ironically, they have reduced the violence in the game but it seems player violence off the field is getting worse.
