Excellent piece; I didn't realize how influential and important the XFL was before seeing this. Super entertaining read.

All I remember about the XFL is that it was ridiculous. Turns out it was also a really interesting experiment.

A Beautiful Corpse

I don't think to this day I've ever got a phone call from anybody in the league office or a letter saying you're terminated or anything like that.

I'll never forget this. I'm sitting in Medina, Ohio, south of Cleveland. I'm watching the 11 o'clock news. The ticker scrolls across the bottom that the XFL has folded. So I yelled up to my wife, "Honey, I'm unemployed."
