Apparently not:




The plan, for now, will be to have eight teams in yet-to-be-selected cities, and those eight teams would play a 10-game season, with four teams advancing to the playoffs. The teams are expected to consist of 40-player rosters.

The season, as currently envisioned, would dovetail with the end of the NFL season, with Week One landing on the Sunday between the NFL's conference championship games and the Super Bowl.

But it won't be the same XFL that arrived on the scene 17 years ago. This XFL will be family friendly and driven by technology, with no cheerleaders or other salacious content, no hard-nosed rules like a scramble for the ball to determine the kickoff or the elimination of the fair catch on punt returns.



McMahon plans to seek and rely heavily on the wishes of the fans, and he's already assuming that fans would like to see the game fit within a window of two hours, not three.




Ultimately, the focal point will be football and only football. McMahon said there will be no politics (of any kind) and no social issues, and that the game play will be driven by a desire to simplify the rules, and to learn from mistakes made by past professional football leagues.



And while McMahon said he has no desire to compete with or agitate the NFL, there was a hint of shade at the established pro football property.

"I think we're gonna know what a catch is," McMahon said.
