20 Rules The XFL SHOULD NOT DO In The 2020 Season [Satire]

This was sent to us via our YouTube channel from SuperUkcats. This IS NOT REAL it was just a funny take. We thought fans of XFL News Hub would get a kick out of it. We did, it had us laughing out loud.

So here is from XFL Army member SuperUkcats…

This is a game of TACKLE FOOTBALL! It’s time to live up to the X in the Xtreme Football League, career-ending injuries and damaged brains be damned! You know what you signed up for, deal with it!

1. Kill the Pass Interference… …which also means Receivers can assault defensive players trying to pass interfere

2. You can attack guys when they are down after the play is over, but you can only get a couple of shots in, after that will result in a “Bashing” penalty

3. If you want to take off your helmet for some extra firepower, go for it, but remember you cannot put it back on until the play is over

4. Return of scrambling for the football instead of the coin toss

5. If you get into a fight, you will be benched for two minutes, but if you LOSE the fight, you get FIVE minutes… …also, your team will be down a player during the benching

6. Refball! But you must bribe the refs in order to get them to call bulls**t penalties, and you can only do it once per half

7. Wrestling moves can be used to take out players

8. Play clock is only 20 seconds…and failure to comply will result in a 30 yard penalty

9. A failed Coach’s challenge will result in a loss of a down…but you can challenge an unlimited number of times

10. Deflated balls are allowed, but you must inform the refs first, also, you can only do it for one play before it is replaced with a full ball, and you only get three deflated balls per game

11. You can steal signs, but (again) you can only do it for three plays per game, get caught after that, and 11 star players get ejected and suspended for 2 games

12. Audibles where you can take out a ref is legal…but there will be a “Ref Bashing” penalty in return

13. Audibles where you take out the QB is fair game as well…if you don’t mind giving up a score that is

14. If fans start throwing garbage on the field, then you can go up there and teach them a lesson let alone making sure they never attend another game again

15. Speaking of trash, the refs will scatter the field with the stuff to increase the difficulty in the second half, that’s a rule

16. When the ambulance appears on the field, GET OUT OF THE WAY! The ambulance can and will run over anybody in their path, and they will NOT tend to you if you were stupid enough to get runned over!

17. Steroids are legal! Have at it!

18. Overtime games will have no field goals AND punts

19. First to score a safety or touchdown in overtime wins

20. And the most important rule of them all, NO FAIR CATCHES!

If Vince implements these rules, then the XFL has a chance.

Clearly this is not how the XFL should run its league. Check out Mark from XFL News Hub read this on one of the live podcasts.

    The 9th rule is actually (in my opinion) a good rule. I’m sure there are flaws but that can be worked out
