I'm just spitballing, but how feasible would it be to have a team play out of Syracuse's Carrier Dome?

 

Would have to schedule around Syracuse Men's and Women's Basketball teams, both of which play in the Carrier Dome.

Pretty good set of games today. Gonna have to get these boys some type of preseason next year so the first few games are better.

I think Dallas will be really good. Warm and a noteworthy opponent with instate eternal rival in Houston. The first game was heavy threat of rain and still chilly for Texans. The rain ended up missing the stadium. But hours before you wouldn't know that.

The last play in the LA/NY game was fantastic!  THey should allow a forward pass if the ball goes back behind the line of scrimmage, even if it has already passed.  Like on one of the laterals or fumbles, if it's recovered behind the original line, you should just be able to chuck it down field and see what happens.

Even If say they draw 22-24K tomarrow. Tampa is gonna drag it down hard. It will be similar to NY’s crowd. 15K would be a miracle but I don’t see it happening. 
 

This league needs San Antonio and Orlando to give it a strong base with St Louis and Seattle. Not necessarily expansion probably moving Tampa to Orlando and Dallas to San Antonio would be the easiest way

Yep, plus then still have to schedule around the lacrosse teams March-May as well

Dallas won't be too bad.  It's not going to be a dramatic drop in attendance.

The Dallas game looks promising. According to the Ticketmaster seating chart, it looks like it’s around eighty percent filled.

Pretty bad the two lowest drawing teams are in the two biggest American cities. 

 

Could be an easy fix though.

San Diego Wildcats

Columbus Guardians?

 

I wonder how Detroit would do at Ford Field? Would be cool to see a team there called the Spartans. Pay homage to the Portsmouth Spartans who became the Lions.

Dallas might do well, but Tampa on the other hand?  Probably not so much.

Columbus will lead to MLS Crew fans raging that the XFL has ruined their pristine soccer pitch.  DC United fans are already furious that the XFL has ruined Audi Field.

Supposedly Columbus is getting a new stadium so what they currently use will be vacant.

I read about that, but also read that Mapfre Stadium is going to be used as a practice venue and community-wide stadium, which could mean reduced seating.

I'm not sure they'd need to reduce seating. Especially if it's used for festivals and concerts.

Mapfre would be perfect. Of course if that happens it would only make sense for the team to have yellow in their paint scheme.

 

Columbus Generals has a nice ring to it. Goes well with the Blue Jackets and instead of the Zouave look, they could do the Union Calvary look.

Crowd in Dallas looks like it might be bigger than their home opener.
