Leaning towards the defenders because they have the only Stanford player so far.

$55k fucking blows lmao. These guys could probably sell used cars in their old college towns and make more than that.

Car salesmen also don't have the opportunity to showcase themselves to NFL.

Lack of skill and/or athleticism?

55K is definitely atrocious, but for any player with NFL aspirations not on a roster/practice squad, they should probably jump at the opportunity. A few guys from the AAF have made the league and I don't see why that couldn't happen here either.

Sorry, not risking turning my brain into mush for $55k and the minuscule chance I get to spend a year or two on an NFL practice squad.

I feel like training camps and such give you a better shot

It's also 55k for a 12 week season (including playoffs). Plus practice. They could still be car salesmen the rest of the year and probably net 100k.

And remember, Tommy Maddox won NFL cbpy after playing in the XFL. Rod Smart, Jose Cortez, Kevin Kaesveharn all played several years. And the original XFL was even more of a joke than this version.

That is true. Even with a full training camp you’re probably working around a third of the year.

Yeah. It's definitely important to remember they aren't being paid for 12 months.

Yeah that's the thing, you need to train constantly. It's not like it's a construction job.

They need to train like an hour or 2 a day. Not like they're working out 8 hours a day.
